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.

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.

"You don't look so good," says the cop, smiling. "You look like death."Possum nods, the gaunt face bobbing. The Virus hangs on him, hangs on everything in the rented room. Three decades of firing heroin and thieving and turning over criminals to police at $50 to $100 a head, but it isn't a penitentiary or a bullet or a lethal dose that claims him."Yeah, I been sick, you know," says Possum in a mumble, his stick-leg stretched over a table. "I been sick but I'm back now."Possum, showing some life, talking about working.

Hearing that Mayor Sheila Dixon hopes to spit-shine Baltimore's streets with a snappy new campaign to reform even the worst litterers, Sun readers jumped to help. Eager to share their wisdom, to save the city money and, most of all, to see how the city would look clean, Baltimoreans submitted to us dozens of anti-litter slogan suggestions -- many of which are even printable. Some people revealed their inner poet: "Stash it, Don't Trash it." "Litter -- It makes the City and Planet Bitter."

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."

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.

Baltimore's private dining clubs, longtime bastions of business networking and deal-making, are loosening up in an effort to attract a younger generation to keep their doors open. Dress codes are easing and lower dues are offered for young members at the Engineers Club of Baltimore in Mount Vernon and the Center Club downtown on the 16th floor of the Transamerica tower. Both have invested millions of dollars over the last five years to revamp aging facilities and maintain the appeal of exclusivity to attract those with money to spend.

The Baltimore Grand Prix appeared to be a great success. We decided at the last minute on Friday to see what was happening. After taking the light rail, we found ourselves in a prime spot along the fence on Pratt Street and the fun began. It was loud and exciting seeing Indy cars zoom by. There was a great energy in the city and the race was accessible for paying and non-paying fans. It was just fun. Yay, Baltimore Lissa Abrams, Baltimore

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.

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.

I have lived in Baltimore for over 40 years and I have never been so proud nor so impressed with the city as I have been this past weekend. The Sailabration was beautifully orchestrated, and the organizers deserve much credit for a flawless event. The tall ships and all the visiting ships were magnificent with eager visitors. The Blue Angels were simply thrilling. The harbor was overflowing with happy families. Pierce's Park, our newest park along the water near Pier V, was jammed with joyful children, happy parents and an extraordinary mix of people so impressed with this city.

The pros of Baltimore's visionary Gran Prix IndyCar race are plentiful, while the cons are petty and inconsequential. If Baltimore can alter the "Homicide" image popularized by David Simon's successful book and television series, we'll be ahead of the game no matter how much of a profit the event ends up making. Baltimore has really lost its luster among people we met during recent trips abroad and out west -- even in Denver, where they have done a beautiful job in successfully duplicating our downtown stadiums and Harborplace attractions.

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.
