As with the rest of Baltimore City, Belvedere Square, on York Road south of Northern Parkway, has experienced a roller coaster of ups and downs through the decades. However, thanks to a major renovation in 2003, interested businesses and loyal patrons, it's again hip to be Belvedere Square. The Belvedere market joyfully reopened after a decade of inactivity and neglect. Belvedere Holdings LLC, Inc., a development team of Struever Bros. Eccles & Rouse Inc., Manekin Corporation, Hawkins Development Group, and Williams Jackson Ewing, purchased the aging shopping center with the goal of restoring its former magnificence.

People always say they want a lot of investment choices in their 401(k) plans at work, but when they get them they often find themselves overwhelmed by the decision-making process. Take the case of International Business Machines Corp., where workers met in focus groups to discuss the company's retirement benefits. IBM's 401(k) plan has 21 investment choices. At first, workers said they needed more information to make decisions about allocating their funds, said Jay Vivian, director of IBM's retirement funds.

The question of the night came without a punch line. "How is everybody holding up?" said comic Ben Kennedy at Thursday open-mike night at Winchester's comedy club in downtown Baltimore. "Everybody take a deep breath. We're all a little uptight." Given it's our patriotic duty to resume normal lives (i.e., shop, fly, rent movies, follow Barry Bonds' home run derby), it was time to come out of our shells and seek comedy. In New York, David Letterman had poignantly broken the ice, and others have since followed.
