End of the New Century: SEC investigation causes problems for Maryland-based subprime lender New Century Financial Corp.

| Image by Christopher Myers Most people who have heard of New Century Financial Corp. think of it as a formerly high-flying California-based mortgage lender manned with drunken youngsters who made idiotic loans and reaped millions in fees. But New Century is also a real estate investment trust—REIT, for short—and is organized, for the...

In the cover feature, Van Smith scares up some dead Baltimoreans who have been ghost-voting since the late 1980s. To look at the Johns Hopkins computer-science students’ study that inspired Smith’s story, visit Professor Aviel Rubin’s web site. No direct link, so go to Rubin’s “Work Page,” then “Course #CS 600.443,” “Spring 2005,” finally...

Bar Clark: No one looked good in this one–what with expletive-laden instant-messages, a police chief never really leaving his hometown, domestic-abuse investigations, etc., etc.–but Ex-Baltimore Police Chief Kevin Clark always seemed to look worst. So it comes as no surprise that he has lost his lawsuit against the mayor, which claimed O’Mayor illegally fired...

Again: More trouble for Maryland’s Dept. of Juvenile Services, this time a guard punching naked kids in the groin at the Alfred D. Noyes Children’s Center in Rockville as part of an initiation ritual. Metoric Meters: If cabbies get their way (ever-increasing gas prices are to blame), prices of taxi rides likely to rise...

The Third Floor is back from Easter vacation, but still way behind, so just fast-and-furious catch-up today. Back to normal tomorrow, hopefully. Patronage Abuse: From today’s Sun, DOT Secretary Bob Flanagan hires another incompetent, this time Anne Arundel County pol/perennial Ehrilich administration employee Phillip Bissett, to head the state’s MARC train system, for more...

False Profits: I doubt they planned this, but today’s Sun houses two features on somewhat odd, ethically questionable ways to make prophets: Tom Pelton innoculates the Curtis Bay medical-waste incinerator, now under new ownership; and Stephanie Desmon butchers Hagerstown prison‘s meat-processing plant/state moneymaker. Headlights: In the Towson Times, Bob Allen dodges traffic along with...

Up in Smoke: City Councilman Robert Curran to propose smoking ban in city restaurants/bars bill tonight. O’Rumors: For whatever reason, we’ve been warned continually in the past week or so to be careful of what we e-mail at work.

Breaking News: Maryland’s U.S. Attorney calls off federal investigation into City Council ethics lapses. Sounds like the right call here. Former U.S. Attorney Thomas DiBiagio and his fishing trips had been completely discredited as purely political attempts to hurt state Dems, while his bosses wanted him to go after terrorists or something like that....

Free Money: The extension of Key Highway from its endpoint at the Domino Sugar plant to Nicholson Street and Tide Point is much needed. And kudos to the Board of Estimates for coming up with a deal to finance it. But I don’t see anything in there about Struever Bros. Eccles and Rouse, surely...
