How's It Goin'?

Michelle Severn

Antonio Baines

32, chef

"It's going great."

Joseph Monczewski

20, line cook

"Ruthless is how the hell it's going. Lost the keys to my house twice in the last week. I'm falling apart. I'm the most unhealthy person in Baltimore, and that's a direct quote."

Carmen Stanford

26, homemaker

"It's going very well, very happy with everything."

Nathan Stanford
(Carmen Stanford's son)

3 in June, toddler

Reg Howie

34, bike messenger

"It's going well."

Jimmy Nemeth

"Really well. Is that it? We just ended our season in first place."

"OK. That's the question? OK."

Alexander Andrews

Joan H.

"How's it going? Depends on what you're talking about. Some things are going good. Some things are not."

Bob Garner

Shaun Coles

28, health information associate

"Pretty good. Not bad."

Barry Nash

"Let me see. I want to say it in one word. 'Beautifully.' I wonder if my mother would be proud of that."

Zach Morehouse

"Not good. Just had my finger injured at work, and I have no workmen's-comp claim because I was working after hours. Now I have no job. They fired me."

R.C. Yetter

47, musician

"Going great. Playing music. Doesn't get any better. I thought you were going to ask me about the war or something."

Linda Taylor

Jwan Kelly

"All right, cool."

Kathy Hartman

54, registered nurse

"Ha ha. How's it going? Jeez. It could mean so many different things. Although I feel like I'm doing real well, it's still a difficult time dealing with 9-11. Seeing everything that's going on over there with the soldiers. I'm having a hard time. I'm not sure about others. I feel like I've wanted constant contact with my husband. I'm looking forward to spring to give us new hope and new life. I've never had to deal with this before. It's a very difficult time in my life. Especially seeing my children go through this. That's something I thought they'd never have to deal with. Things will never be the same."

The Rev. Frank Donio

35, priest at St. Jude Shrine

"Great. Best time of my life. I'm in a wonderful city spreading faith and hope and reaching out with God's love."

John Bidish Jr.

37, credit-department associate for auto-parts dealer

"I don't know. That's what I usually say when people ask me how's it going."
