Suddenly, a Happy Meal doesn't seem like such a brilliant idea. Any schmo can throw a plastic toy in a bag, but it takes genuine passion to open your soul and sing about hash browns, a loyal waitress or a hot cup of joe. So until Ronald McDonald and Mayor McCheese start a garage band to sing about Big Macs, the culturally conscious diner will always opt for a booth near the jukebox at Waffle House, where the syrup and songs both flow sticky and sweet....

IF YOUR IDEA of a big adventure is a ride across town to look at wicker furniture, you won't know what to make of Don Chiarello's story. Four years ago, at the age of 60, Chiarello dropped out of the rat race for good. He quit his law practice in Towson. Sold his house in Federal Hill. Sold the furniture. Sold his Nissan 200 SX. But Chiarello didn't exactly head off to spend his golden years playing golf and hanging around the Waffle House for the free drink refills. No, he bought a 68-foot schooner called the Attua in New Zealand.

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether to bar a federal anti-discrimination agency from suing companies for damages on behalf of employees covered by arbitration agreements. Less than a week after concluding that companies can enforce arbitration accords signed by workers, the justices agreed yesterday to decide whether the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is bound as well. Lower courts are split on the issue. Companies are seeking to limit an agency that over the past decade has pressed more than 3,000 bias suits against employers, winning in excess of $500 million in damages.

Quote: "See you all at the Waffle House." -- Red Sox manager Jimy Williams to his players after Tuesday's soggy day-night doubleheader in Cleveland ended at 12: 48 a.m. yesterday.It's a fact: The Yankees are 71-25, the franchise's best record ever for the first 96 games of the season and one game behind the 1902 Pittsburgh Pirates for the best record this century at that point in a season.Who's hot: The Rangers' Juan Gonzalez has four homers and 10 RBIs in his past three games after going nine games without an RBI.Who's not: The Tigers' Brian Hunter, who set a record going 0-for-13 in a doubleheader Monday night against the Yankees, went 0-for-5 against them Tuesday and 0-for-4 yesterday.

Jack Kerouac has been ditched for David Simon. Those Baltimore area soul-searching twentysomethings who went on the road in an old green school bus two weeks ago are utterly, embarrassingly homesick. Hey, even those gutsy Beat poets must have missed their moms now and then. Traveler Jon Yeager, 22, has put down Kerouac's On the Road and is reading Simon's The Corner just to get by, eating up all those references to Charm City. Beth Lawrence has been calling home twice a week, talking to her family for 10 to 40 minutes.

SERBIA'S dictator Slobodan Milosevic could take no comfort from the NATO summit, which displayed unanimous resolve for the bombing campaign to reverse his depopulation of Kosovo. He got it instead from the U.S. House of Representatives' muddled voting Wednesday.The House defeated, on a 213-213 tie, a resolution passed by the Senate endorsing the purpose of the bombing. It voted 249-180 against paying for a ground operation unless the president obtains congressional approval (as he had already promised)

In the morning, we'd much rather take out a Western omelet then spend the time making one at home. We ordered four from local eateries, looking for the best combination of scrambled eggs and chopped green peppers, onions and ham. Here's what we found. BEST BITE Shea's Pancake and Waffle House 215 Back River Neck Road, Essex -- 410-238-4877 Hours --6 a.m.-2 p.m. daily Restaurant's estimate --10 minutes Ready in --7 minutes Here, the large folded omelet, $7.86, was cooked a little too long.

TAMPA, Fla.-- --Finally, my first ACC men's basketball tournament. I'd heard the stories from coaches, players and fellow sportswriters for years and have looked forward to experiencing the event in person. The rich tradition. The frenzied excitement. The flip-flops and sunscreen. Yep, you read that right. Something funny happened when the tournament made the trek from Tobacco Road to the Cigar City. That little thing that made the event so special seems to have gotten lost, stranded at a Waffle House in Georgia probably.
