In Sally Thorner's living room, a sprawling rattan loveseat beckons from a corner. A bit fantastical, it's a closer relative of the porch swing than the sofa in mood and purpose. With its oversized downy cushions, this piece is meant for long, lazy mornings, for losing track of time with one's husband, for unabashed relaxation. Needless to say, it's new. As an anchorwoman for 25 years, the omnipresent face of television news in Baltimore, Thorner had little time to herself. But that's all changed since she retired last year.

A former Morgan Stanley vice president, who was working on the Wall Street firm's deal to buy Town and Country Trust, and her husband secretly began buying shares of the Baltimore apartment complex owner shortly after financing for the acquisition was approved, according to federal prosecutors. The couple allegedly funneled the shares into an account set up in the name of the vice president's mother, a resident of China, and sold them two months later for more than a $21,000 profit. That was the first of three alleged illegal trading schemes outlined in a complaint filed this week in federal court in New York after investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the FBI. Adhering to a pattern of deliberate deception that lasted from the end of 2005 to January of this year, the former Morgan Stanley executive, Jennifer Wang, and her spouse, Rubin Chen, netted more than $600,000 by trading on confidential information that Wang was privy to, the complaint alleged.

Once again, the giant Hollywood star machine has labored mightily and coughed up a mouse - or at best, Warren Beatty in a polar bear suit. He's cute in the suit, like a baggy-pants version of the polar bears in the yuletide Coca-Cola commercials. He should have played the whole picture that way. For Beatty doesn't have a naturally engaging comic spirit. He didn't in those duds everyone has forgotten, like "The Fortune," or in the one no one will forget, "Ishtar," or even in his fading-from-memory hit, "Heaven Can Wait."

MY DAY-CARE provider, a former Baltimore County police officer who lives in a Reisterstown townhouse, has never been to Oriole Park, the City Life Museum or the Pratt. Nor has she any wish to go. She doesn't like the Inner Harbor or the National Aquarium. Too crowded. Once in a while she'll take the kids to the zoo. Otherwise, the mere mention of Baltimore makes her face screw up as if she just smelled something nasty.The town postmistress says she visits Baltimore twice a year. She likes the city -- grew up there, in fact -- and would go more often.
