The greatest legacy of William Donald Schaefer is that he prevented Baltimore from becoming another Detroit or Newark or Camden. Because of his visionary policies, Baltimore was transformed from a dying, industrial-based city to one driven by tourism, health and IT. He restored hope to a city devastated by the riots in 1968 and by sheer force of will created the conditions that have led to the revitalization of neighborhoods like Federal Hill, Canton...

The other night I was awakened at 2 a.m. by a robocall from the "mayor and city council of Baltimore" alerting me about the upcoming hurricane. I am thoroughly disgusted and very angry about it - even more so because I couldn't speak to anyone in city government on Sunday. When I called the City Hall operator I was given the number for the mayor's office of constituency, which, of course, was closed. I wonder who was responsible for this snafu...

"Stop fighting, start demolishing" is The Sun's advice ("Time to stop fighting about Superblock and start building," April 18) on the historic Read's drugstore and other buildings on the west side "Superblock. " Indeed, historic preservationists have delayed a number of grand demolition projects in Baltimore — like the waterfront expressway from the Inner Harbor to Fells Point, or the low-level harbor crossing that would have obliterated Federal Hill, or the replacement of our splendid Victorian City Hall with some sort of brutalist bunker.

Ironic that the very day that Dan Rodricks attacks Pat McDonough for his candid and truthful assessment of gang crime downtown ("Conflicting realities collide downtown," May 24), The Sun buries on page 4 the attack by 20-30 "unruly" teens at the 7-Eleven at Light and Pratt streets - the heart of the Inner Harbor in the middle of a workday! Say what you want, Mr. Rodricks, but facts are facts, and Baltimore is not typical of other cities. You want to feel secure walking around town?

I am a Baltimore resident who is saddened every year to watch so many city trees die needlessly due to lack of water. The city often does a poor job of planting trees, and I've observed trees being left near the planting sites for days to dry out before they are put in the ground. Then the soil in which they are planted is often poorly amended or completely unimproved. I've witnessed many trees that were planted too low or too high in the ground. Frequently, they are not mulched or sometimes mulched with fresh wood chips which suck some of the nitrogen from the soil, rather than aged mulch which returns nutrients and better retains moisture.

Left-handed pitcher Dana Eveland is on his way to Baltimore today and is expected to start Friday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Eveland, 28, was 3-2 with a 2.21 ERA in six starts at Triple-A Norfolk. Eveland is taking the spot that had been Tommy Hunter's, but Hunter was sent to Norfolk on Monday. Hunter has since returned and will pitch tonight in the second game of the doubleheader in place of Jason Hammel. Hammel's turn was skipped because he is dealing with soreness in his right knee.

"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.

Let's face it: Charm City can be a strange place. That's one of the reasons we like it so much. From toilet races in Hampden to hilariously lewd bathroom signs, Baltimore has a quirky sensibility few other cities can match. View the photo gallery We rounded up more than a dozen photos of weird and funny Baltimore sights for a photo essay we're calling Only in Baltimore. If you have odd Baltimore photos you want to send us, you can email them to onlyinbaltimore@gmail.com . You can also submit photos via Twitter and Instagram by tagging them with #onlyinbaltimore and @baltimoresun.

I very much enjoyed Frank Roylance's column relating the fate of the duck and her chicks crossing the busy roads of rush hour Baltimore and the parallels with the classic story by Robert McCloskey in Boston. The story was read to me as a child, and decades later I read it to my children who also enjoyed both the Boston and Baltimore versions. (They also liked the '50s era film version shown at the Pratt one Saturday morning.) When visiting Boston two years ago, I was crossing the Public Garden to meet an old friend for dinner and happened across the commemorative sculptures of the mother duck and ducklings that commemorate Mr. McCloskey's story.
