After remaining virtually unchanged since 1935, Monopoly, the classic board game, has been updated -- and inflated -- for the times, with higher rents, bigger money, new properties and more "contemporary" tokens, five of which carry brand names. National landmarks, all selected in an Internet poll, are bought and sold in the new game, which hit toy stores last week, selling for $30 and up -- about twice the price of the old one, which will still be produced. Gone in the new game are all the old tokens, from the wheelbarrow to the battleship, replaced by, among others, the Toyota Prius and a sack of McDonald's french fries.

A father carried his two little girls across rooftops to rescue them from a Northwest Baltimore rowhouse fire yesterday, but the children lost their mother, grandmother and uncle in the fierce blaze. Killed in the fire in the 3100 block of Virginia Ave. were Gail Tucker, 56; her daughter Tanika Holland, 24; and her son, Bryant Sumter, 18. "There was so much smoke that they didn't survive very long," said Baltimore fire Lt. Daniel Christ, whose Engine 29 was the first of 17 units to fight the fire, which was reported at 1:30 a.m. yesterday.

I HEAR you're grouchier than usual this holiday," my friend noted cheerfully.L Taking offense, I insisted I was not grouchy; I was harried."That's not what I heard. Your son told everyone at school your naked Christmas tree is hanging in your garage from a noose strung over the rafters dangling in a bucket of water. He also told everyone not to expect a holiday greeting card, because you said the people in your life that matter will call on the phone. He then noted you have Caller ID and you elect not to answer the phone when it's someone you haven't spoken with in a while, because there's too much to catch up on and you're busy," she announced.

I couldn't remember my Nixon history too well.But I sure could feel it.It was hard not to, standing in the lobby of the Howard Johnson's Hotel on Virginia Avenue, looking out the glass door to the gigantic, odd-shaped complex across the street.I didn't remember exactly where the scouts were posted that night nearly 25 years ago; it was somewhere a few floors above me. (I looked it up later: Room 723.) Still, I figured, their view would have been similar to mine. And I wondered how frantic G. Gordon Liddy and E. Howard Hunt became when they looked across the avenue -- just as I was doing now -- and saw a security guard approaching their five cohorts in the office of the Democratic National Headquarters in the Watergate building.
