It is the time of year when my passion blooms anew, and it is for tomatoes. I eat them with every meal and in between, as if I could store them in my taste buds against the winter, when the tomatoes in the grocery store taste like some kind of pale red nothing. I make friends based on whether they have a tomato patch I might benefit from - it is my curse that I can't seem to grow them myself - and I combine them with every other fresh vegetable out there in one recipe or another.

America just got a little bit greener. Earlier this summer, Aspen, Colo. - John Denver's "sweet Rocky Mountain paradise" - became the first city in the U.S. to launch a comprehensive Meatless Monday campaign. Local restaurants, schools, hospitals, charities and businesses, including the Aspen Valley Hospital, the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Aspen Elementary School, have signed on to promote plant-based meals on Mondays. For our own health and the health of the planet, the rest of us should go meat-free as well - at least for one day a week.

Finally, Baltimore gets a chance to look good on prime time TV - and it's on the most stylish and honored drama on television no less. It's the Baltimore of the 1960s, unfortunately, not Baltimore today. But nevertheless, Baltimore is featured prominently in the Aug. 16 premiere episode of Season 3 of AMC's Mad Men, last year's winner of the Emmy as the best drama on television. And what viewers will see of the city - from Haussner's restaurant to the Belvedere Hotel - makes Baltimore look like a first-rate East Coast urban center with good hotels, restaurants, night life and thriving businesses.
