After two weeks in Baltimore, I have found precious jewels obscured in sadness: The city's beautiful row houses. These grand dames line the streets of Harford Avenue, Biddle Street and East North Avenue, to name just a few locations. But the life has been expelled from them. You may wonder why a stranger from Kansas would care so much for broken properties. First, I love architecture and find beauty in the cut and curve of a building. And I have been in search of a place to call home.

DURING THE late 1940s, when I was an adolescent, we lived near the point where Harford Avenue and Aisquith Streets, which run parallel, intersect with Biddle Street, creating a triangle. This was a favorite play area for local children. It was at that intersection -- just before twilight -- that George Henry, Mark and I would gather to wait for a man we called "Mr. Bill."A short muscular man with curly, gray hair, Mr. Bill trudged through the neighborhood with a ladder on one shoulder: It was a tool for his nightly duties -- lighting the gas streetlights that dotted the neighborhood.

The two men, wearing slacks and ties, are standing on an East Baltimore street corner in front of a vacant lot. Raymond Staubs, 29, squats down and flips on a guitar amp. In one hand is a Bible, in the other a microphone. "It's time to repent - commit to God!" Staubs shouts. "Keep the Ten Commandments - thou shall not kill! Holler it from the rooftops! Put away the guns, put away the dope. Hallelujah!" It's the middle of the afternoon, and Staubs' words are mere background noise as city police investigate another fatal shooting.

When Alfred "Freddy" Garner Jr. was growing up, h's father taught him to be the bigger man and walk away from confrontations. That's what relatives and police say the information technology professional from Washington was doing early Sunday when he was followed from a Northeast Baltimore bar and fatally stabbed. "He was getting into his vehicle so he could call his friend, who was still inside," said his sister, Tina Jordan, 45. Garner was one of two people mortally wounded in separate incidents Sunday and pronounced dead Monday, ending a stretch of relative calm in the city, in which only two homicides were recorded over a span of 18 days.

Paula Protani was posting signs in a parking lot on a hot day in August 2009 when she spotted a police officer arranging for a crashed car to be hauled away by a Majestic tow truck. A leader of the city's licensed towers group, Protani said she knew she was witnessing a violation of city law. She said she pointed out her concerns to the officer — and he told her she was under arrest. "I'm 50-some years old, and I had never been arrested before," Protani, a manager at East Baltimore's Frankford Towing, said Wednesday.

When it opened in 1984 after a million-dollar renovation, the building at Cathedral and Biddle streets was hailed as Baltimore's first urban inn -- the beginning of a wave of small, upscale hotels that would provide an alternative to larger, convention-oriented operations downtown.More than a decade later, the inn's original developers have packed their bags and checked out. But the building is doing better than ever under new owners who are remodeling it from bottom to top.Paul Bragaw and Collin Clarke, co-owners of the four-star Mr. Mole Bed and Breakfast in Bolton Hill, expanded this spring by buying the inn at 58 W. Biddle St. -- the former Society Hill Hotel.

Documents released last week by the British government recalled the Duke and Duchess of Windsor's more than flirtatious interest in Nazi Germany and his abdication 60 years ago this week.H. L. Mencken, the Baltimore journalist, described the story of the couple's love affair and his eventual abdication on Dec. 11, 1936, as the "greatest story since the Crucifixion."After the abdication and until his death in 1972 and hers 14 years later, the couple remained wealthy curiosities from another age and another time.
