The media constantly reminds us of what is wrong with Baltimore. There is the pervasive crime problem, stories of political corruption and educational and environmental issues. But there is something very right about Baltimore that gets very little press and certainly not enough attention from the populace at large. We have several outstanding small theaters in our city. They include but are not limited to Everyman, Spotlighters, Vagabond and Fells Point Corner Theatre. There are others such as Single Carrot, Mobtown and Performance Workshop.

With my uncanny sense of timing, I am coming down with some ague on my day off. So I am at home treating myself with sleep, hot tea, and whiskey, and thinking about forgoing the first two.  I also have a pot of chili simmering on the stove against Kathleen's return home from work at Trinity Church in Towson. It is just as well to be home, because the Death From the Sky arrived within the last hour.* I see on Twitter that some of you who endured the brutality of this storm in the middle section of the country are snow-wimp-shaming us Mid-Atlantic sorts, with some justification, but I should explain some things to you.  In four years at Michigan State and six at Syracuse, I understood that people can learn how to drive in snow, even very heavy snow.

Of all the praise pouring his way yesterday from every corner of official Baltimore, Dominic "Mimi" DiPietro -- a legendary East Baltimore city councilman who died Friday night at 89 -- probably would find none of it as satisfying as a simple recollection from Deritha Grove."

"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.

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.
