A new report being released today calls on the Baltimore region to rethink economic development, pointing to a worrying trend: a mounting share of low-wage jobs shutting more and more residents out of the middle class. The number of jobs in largely low-paying industries such as retail and food service grew more than 60 percent in the region between 1980 and 2007, while jobs increased 36 percent in middle-wage fields and just under 10 percent in high-wage fields, according to the Brookings Institution study.

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.

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

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.

Since many publications are coming out with their men and women of the year, I thought I would nominate some of our local talent for The Sun's consideration. First, how about city schools CEO AndrĂ©s Alonso and Police Commissioner Frederick H. HHHBealefeld III? These two guys have labored persistently under difficult circumstances to produce measurable — even if modest — results in their respective territories where their predecessors struggled. They have put Baltimore at times in the national limelight and make us proud.
