In reference to the front page article on Oct. 7, "$1 fare eyed for free buses," I for one will not use the Charm City Circular if $1 charge is imposed; that's only one way, so the cost is really $2. I have a hybrid car, but in my opinion having a hybrid vehicle does not mean I can still drive because I use less gas and cause less damage to the atmosphere; no, it means that I too still have to drive less. The $1 (two-way, $2) charge is way more then the cost of me driving my hybrid.

Schmoozing after a mayoral candidate forum at Morgan State University last week, state Sen. Catherine E. Pugh draped a long, slim arm around a student's neck and drew him close for a chat. Never mind that they had just met. Or that Pugh, with only days left before the Democratic primary on Tuesday, was running late for her next campaign event. "She feels very real," gushed Brandon Mitchell, a 21-year-old Morgan senior. "No matter how busy she is, she'll stop and talk to you. " It was classic Cathy Pugh: Taking a little extra time with a person, even pulling him or her physically close.

A dispute over zoning at the Annapolis City Dock may lead to unintended consequences detrimental to the long-term vitality of our community. In her column on July 12 ("Annapolis whiffs on City Dock again"), Susan Reimer called the Save Annapolis Coalition members some "fusty historic types," and although we are determined to maintain the architectural character and charm of our 300-year - old working maritime port, it's the future that we are focused on. The height and bulk of buildings in downtown Annapolis have been limited since 1967 to preserve an 18th century architectural scale, which is sometimes called a "human scale" and is what makes the city special; Annapolis is considered beautiful by its visitors and twice has been named one of America's most beautiful small towns by Forbes Magazine.

We all should give a big, hearty thanks to Chief Justice John Roberts and his crew of conservatives for putting a big "C" back in government corruption. By turning complete control of our government over to our own lovable and eminently trustable oligarchs, Mr. Roberts has virtually annexed the Constitution for the wealthy. He's sort of like Vladimir Putin, sans the charm and good looks. William Smith, Baltimore - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

For anyone who has ever longed for the charm of an English-inspired country home within Baltimore City, 38 Warrenton Road in Guilford just might be the perfect cup of tea.

I would like to respond to the Lutherville resident who wants to end the tradition of Arabbers ( "Baltimore Arabbers on edge after rash of run-ins with cars," March 5). My wife and I moved to West Baltimore in 1970. Arabbers were a vital link for this community to secure fresh produce. We have lived in Baltimore continuously since that time and have grown to love the Baltimore tradition of Arabbing, respect its vital role in giving "food desert" communities a lifeline to fresh produce and appreciate the contributions of Arabbers to the community, such as providing local children pony rides during neighborhood festivals.

When Bill Clinton took the podium to address the country in January 1993, I was moved to tears. Here, then, was my first president. My parents had had all the presidents up to that point. Here was a man of my generation. Married to the working mother of a school-aged child who was his educational and professional equal. To someone like me. Mr. Clinton acknowledged the passing of the "greatest generation" when he thanked outgoing President George H.W. Bush for his 50 years of service to the country.

I have visited a lot of major cities in my lifetime, but until now I was never inclined to email or write a letter to the editor of the city newspaper to comment about the city and its people. From a recent visit I had to Baltimore, I have found that you have some of the nicest, friendliest and most helpful people I have ever encountered. In particular I owe a debt of gratitude to a gentleman named Mark who helped my wife and I when we got stranded at the train station trying to see the Orioles' last home game.

A terraced lawn accompanied by a stone patio and an in-ground pool makes spending summer outside this Colonial-style single-family home effortless. The interior of the home, which dates to 1800, gives a nod to its past with four wood-burning fireplaces, classic granite countertops, pine floors and extensive moldings. Tasteful and elegant pillars support the exterior balconies. The spacious abode has seven bedrooms, 5½  bathrooms, a smokehouse with a second-floor studio, and a detached garage with offices above.

My story isn't all that groundbreaking. I'm 23, officially a year removed from the University of Maryland-College Park and walking that ever-shaky line between being a functional adult and an irresponsible mess. It's a story you've heard many times before (probably in some form of Internet listicle). And it's also one that many of you are probably experiencing right now, or at least can remember when you were. My column will try to shed light on what being in this awkward half-stage of life really means.

In an age when no cinematic product seems safe from being targeted for a theatrical make-over, and when so few of these movies-turned-musicals end up having much substance to offer, "Once" impresses all the more. This modest-scaled work, now getting its Baltimore debut at the Hippodrome, manages to preserve the essence of the hit indie film from 2007 written and directed by John Carney, while creating some unusual and genuine magic of its own. The screen version of "Once" introduced two engaging characters identified, in Everyman fashion, as Guy, a frustrated street musician in Dublin; and Girl, a Czech immigrant who happens upon him and finds herself riveted by his songs.

In a clearing off of a wooded lane in Stevenson is a white stucco, Tuscan-style villa with ornate cast-iron window boxes spilling summer vines, looking like the subject of an impressionist painting. Inside, beyond the driveway and the arched, two-story center bay, the Iliev family - Martin and Jessica, their 3-year old son, Max, and a pair of toy poodles, Sophie and Tiger - welcome visitors to their newly built home. In a large, open kitchen dominated by a center island that's topped with a 9-by-6-foot slab of white quartz, the Ilievs recalled purchasing the 4-acre parcel of land.

It is a cool Thursday evening, and jazz flutist Sonny Fortune launches a Thursday evening concert series in Center Plaza. City folks listen to his combo, share wine from a goatskin, drift contentedly across the square.On the plaza outskirts, unobtrusively selling popcorn to benefit the homeless, is Laurie Schwartz. With the exception of colleagues and friends, no one grooving on Mr. Fortune's lovely rendition of "Fly Me to the Moon," can possibly know that it was she who envisioned the moribund plaza as a vibrant public space in the first place.

Just like Lewis Carroll's Alice, I slipped down an Internet rabbit hole and I found myself face to face with Collabro, a musical theater boy band from Britain. Suddenly it was 1966, The Monkees were on, and I was in love with the shy one again. Five tenors, ages 20 to 24, each with a hardscrabble back story and a passion for show tunes. That's Collabro. Terminally adorable, with simple harmonies, they were the winners of "Britain's Got Talent" in June. I don't know what I was Googling when I stumbled on their stunning audition for the show, but I was hooked.
