Inside a one-story structure in a knot of North Laurel warehouses, the Newseum Support Center does business in low-profile fashion. Don't, however, dismiss its lack of curb appeal. Within its walls is a rich and vibrant stash of artifacts that collectively retell journalism's quirky, melodramatic back story. The facility, just south of Route 1 and Whiskey Bottom Road, functions as the go-to arm of the Newseum, the glassy and gleaming edifice midway between the White House and the Capitol.

In life, you don't always get exactly what you want. But once in a while, when you do, it turns out to be something wonderful. Such is the case with Marlene Koeppel's dream home. "I had always wanted this condo," she said, her petite frame, wide eyes and stylish short haircut belying her 72 years. "This was Jack Meyerhoff's condo. " Jack Meyerhoff was the builder of the well-regarded Pikesville condominium building known simply as "11 Slade Avenue. " For his living quarters there, Meyerhoff designed a very special unit on the second floor.

They are so hard to find because, well, they've been handled by children.After all, she says with a smile, "Kids love their books to death."Ms. Jones opened Drusilla's Books in 1987, making Baltimore home to one of only a handful of antiquarian children's bookstores in the country.

Gardeners like to think of themselves as rooted in continuity, unmoved by trends. It may be true for us in clothes or music, but when it comes to plants, we're drawn to the latest, most exotic varieties. This hunger for the new is as old as horticulture itself. Thirty-five hundred years ago, Queen Hatshepsut of Egypt sent collectors off to search for a little something new for the royal gardens. Her plant squad dug, balled and hauled home 32 incense trees. Today, armed with a permit and a voracious appetite for new plants, plant explorers such as Dan Hinkley of Heronswood Nursery Ltd. in Washington and Dan Heims of Terra Nova Nurseries in Oregon comb the globe.

GREELEY, Colo. - News that a cache of powerful explosives in Iraq was apparently left unguarded by American forces and is missing put President Bush on the defensive yesterday as the race for the White House entered its final week. Democratic challenger Sen. John Kerry charged that Bush had "failed the test of being commander in chief" and called the failure to secure the explosives, which could be used to detonate a nuclear weapon, "one of the great blunders of this administration." Campaigning in New Hampshire, Kerry said ominously that "terrorists could use this material to kill our troops, our people, blow up airplanes and level buildings."

If you want to buy a chicken, you can get one at the U.S. 1 Flea Market this weekend. Not the skinned, boned and shrink-wrapped kind but the real cluck, in three colors, no less. Of course the handcrafted lizard boots dyed the colors of red clay and scorching yellow would put any hen to shame, despite her colorful plumage. Those who pass by the buzzing indoor/outdoor market on weekends don't know what they're missing. Like boots from El Reparo Western Wear. For 16 years, this little shop in the southwest indoor corner of the market has outfitted shoppers with colorful, stylishly studded boots for men, women and children, as well as men's jackets, belts and Western hats.

FREDERICK - Joe Bussard yearns for the music made before he was born 71 years ago. So every day he clomps down to his basement and into a hidden world hopping with the music that carries him off to foggy mountain hollows and smoky juke joints. New Orleans-style jazz. String band crooning. Old-time jug band tunes. Cajun fiddling. Soulful blues. He might be the product of the rock 'n' roll era, but Bussard long ago thumbed his nose at just about everything recorded after Franklin D. Roosevelt's second inauguration.

Fur trading? Nah, they do that everywhere. Ferry boat transport? Historically important perhaps, but not terribly exciting. The search for a compelling new museum program led history aficionados in Havre de Grace to a swashbuckling conclusion with a strong local tie: pirates. "Pirates are becoming as big as Civil War re-enactors," said Rebecca Fitzgerald, executive director of the Susquehanna Museum. "There has been a resurgence and awareness of modern-day piracy, and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies have made it popular to be a pirate."

WELL, THAT'S it. I'm canceling my travel plans for Paris. Who needs the Eiffel Tower when Bawlamer's got the Bromo Seltzer Tower? Rome? Who needs Rome when we've got Matthew's Pizzeria on Eastern Avenue? London? Who needs their second-rate royalty? We've already got Mount Royal Tires and Royal Parker and memories of the Royal Theater on Pennsylvania Avenue. Not to mention, we're the Queen City of the Patapsco Drainage Basin. You heard about this, right? Frommer's, the international travel guide, has just ranked Baltimore one of the top 10 summer destinations for 2005 - in the entire world.

He's got baseballs autographed by every American president since 1901, including the only known ball signed by Theodore Roosevelt and a few that were hurled as Opening Day first pitches. He's got Babe Ruth's 1920 bat, with indentations Ruth made each time he hit a home run. Remember George Brett's 1983 "pine tar" home run? He's got the can of pine tar. And while other collectors can boast that they have a copy of the first issue of Playboy featuring curvaceous Marilyn Monroe on its black-and-white cover, James Ancel has probably the only one signed by her husband, Joe DiMaggio.

He gazes serenely out from the faded photo, nattily dressed in a three-piece suit and fedora. His proud expression says, "I made it." A black man born in North Carolina during the waning days of slavery, Wiley H. Bates had no formal schooling and no easy time of it. Yet by the late 1890s, he had become a wealthy Annapolis merchant and community leader. From his seat on the city council, he decried a jailhouse lynching in the state capital and made sure black neighborhoods got new gutters and curbs.

WASHINGTON - Hundreds of al-Qaida fighters have been captured by Pakistani forces as they fled over the border from Afghanistan and could provide a "treasure trove" of intelligence about the terrorist network, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said yesterday. "When they go across the border they are being rounded up to the extent they can be found," Rumsfeld told reporters at the Pentagon. "I'm not sure that all are being rounded up, but large numbers, hundreds, are being rounded up."
