KABUL, Afghanistan - At the raucous Sharzoda Currency Exchange, the value of the country's skittish currency is determined these days by one man: the former king, 87-year-old Mohammad Zahir Shah, living in exile near Rome. When the former king said months ago that he planned to return, the afghani, as the currency is known, rose against the dollar. It rose higher when a date for his return was set: Nowruz, the Persian New Year, on March 22. When that deadline came and went, the currency fell.

But protesters and others should hold a mirror up to themselves and check the facts on the "1 percent.

Ferris Baker Watts said yesterday that two traders will be allowed to return to work while the brokerage and federal officials probe trades on behalf of a former client accused of stealing millions of dollars from investors. The two are among six top executives and traders in Baltimore and Hunt Valley who either resigned or were placed on leave in the months after the company's outside counsel and federal investigators began looking into the trading activity. Institutional traders John Belgrade and Mark LaVerghetta, who will return to work this week, helped process trades for a Cleveland man whom the Securities and Exchange Commission says took in $50 million from investors and diverted some of it to make inappropriate stock trades through accounts at Ferris and elsewhere.
