WHEN IT comes to news reporting, the old city-room edict is always: first, get the story; and second, get it right. When the writer gets it wrong, it's a mess. It gets the reader who knows better all upset, confuses history and puts an error in the record books. I know; I've had my share of errors.Recently, the New York Times, which is known for its excellence, included what some of us around Baltimore consider a glaring error. On Sunday, July 9, the Times published an article about Baltimore in its travel section, called "What's Doing in Baltimore," by writer Melinda Henneberger.

In the early years of this century, when Cab Calloway was growing up in West Baltimore's Sugar Hill, the neighborhood his family called home was considered the political, cultural and business hub of black society.He was the son of middle-class professionals. His mother, Martha Eulalia Reed, was a Morgan State College graduate who taught school. His father, Cabell Calloway, graduated from Lincoln University in Pennsylvania and worked as a lawyer.Young Cab Calloway even had his own car in high school -- a used 1923 Oldsmobile he'd bought with $275 he'd earned working -- a rarity in that era, particularly for a black man."

Baltimore proudly touts its American firsts: first Roman Catholic cathedral (1821), first railroad (1827), first shot tower (1828), first dental college (1840), first Ouija board (1892), first rubber gloves used in surgery (1894), even the first permanent building topped with a revolving restaurant (Holiday Inn, 1964).There's another first that one hears much less about. Baltimore was the first U.S. city to pass a residential segregation ordinance (1911) that limited the places blacks could live.

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has a bit part as a security guard at the State House in Annapolis. The Rev. Frank M. Reid III, senior pastor of Bethel AME Church, has a bigger part as an influential minister delivering a powerful sermon on the eve of a hotly contested Baltimore mayoral primary. And Edward T. Norris, the former police commissioner and convicted felon, is back in his recurring role as a hard-working homicide detective named Ed Norris who is just trying to do good ole police work.

Angela Agnew brushed aside cigarette butts with her hand as she placed candles on the sidewalk, part of a memorial in front of her parents' Northwest Baltimore home Sunday afternoon. The litter might be unremarkable any other day, but lying right where Loressa "Ressy" Little and Leroy Agnew had tossed them every day from the porch, they served as yet another heartbreaking reminder of a couple gone too soon. Police said the two were gunned down inside their home in the 5200 block of Denmore Ave., in the Arlington neighborhood near Pimlico Racecourse, at about 1:27 a.m. Tuesday.

Baltimore was among dozens of disappointed cities when Google announced it had picked Kansas City, Mo., for a high-speed fiber-optic data network in 2011, but officials vowed to continue fighting for fiber nonetheless. Nearly four years later, some are disappointed by the lack of progress— and want to show that some of the fervor that wooed Google remains, waiting for new, affordable options for fast Internet service. A community group based in North Baltimore has attracted more than 900 people and nearly $17,000 in donations to a crowdsourced campaign, the Baltimore Broadband Coalition.

In the age of smartphones and tablets, delivering restaurant food can be more than just taking calls, making the stuff, bagging it and sending a guy out in a rundown Toyota. On the fourth floor of a refurbished broom factory in Canton, a room full of young men in T-shirts, polo shirts and Orioles caps work at a long table laden with computers on OrderUp, a food service with a technology twist. They're busy with the further development of the technology that their company combined with logistical calculation to create a formula that's delivering in 36 markets from Maryland to California.

Laurie Schwartz's recent letter cheering the Inner Harbor 2.0 Plan after the Star-Spangled Spectacular and the Orioles' victory in the division is a positive note of which Baltimore can be proud ( "Baltimore's winning streak," Sept. 18). Ms. Schwartz has done a marvelous job over the years bringing out the best in Baltimore as president of the Waterfront Partnership. Cloning her would be to our advantage, but her optimism about the Inner Harbor 2.0 Plan needs to be tempered with a concern for how to accomplish it successfully.

Nowadays, it is a rare treat to see the word coddies on a menu, but not so long ago this uniquely Baltimore food was as close as your corner store, malt shop or confectionery. Coddies are not to be confused with cod cakes. While recipes for coddies vary, a coddie can be best described as a hand-formed, gently seasoned mashed-potato-and-cracker mixture that is always deep-fried and traditionally served between two saltine crackers topped with yellow mustard. It contains little or no cod. Served at room temperature, today's coddies are made slightly larger than in the past, hanging over the sides of the saltines by one-half inch all around.

Looks like the French may not be flocking to Charm City anytime soon. Seems Baltimore's not really a safe destination, at least as far as the French foreign ministry is concerned. Just as our state department warns about Americans traveling to certain places (it suggests avoiding North Korea, for example), the French are urged to exercise caution in certain U.S. locales. And what do the French say about Baltimore? "Considered a dangerous city except Downtown. " But don't feel too bad; few American cities fared that much better.
