They're the city with wind, we're the city with charm. They have Daleys, we have D'Alesandros. Their stories are told by David Mamet, ours by David Simon. And now, Andrés Alonso may have to choose one over the other. The Baltimore schools chief is on a short list for the same post in Chicago, according to the Chicago Tribune, which is owned by the same company as The Baltimore Sun. And, adding to all this delightful inbreeding, I have something of a dual citizenship in both cities — born here, raised there, came back here almost 24 years ago to work at The Sun. So allow me to offer some unsolicited advice to Dr. A, should he be weighing one city against the other.

The union representing Esskay Inc. workers in Baltimore filed suit in U.S. District Court yesterday in an attempt to force the company to keep contributing to local retirees' health insurance fund.Last week, Esskay announced it would close its East Baltimore plant by May 15 and stop contributing by May 31 to the fund that helps pay for the health benefits of about 380 local retirees.Esskay officials said the cutoff of retiree benefits would save the company $1 million a year and cost each of the retirees, who now pay $30 a month for health insurance, an additional $127 a month.

The Baltimore Ravens have a signed new a hot dog supplier — from Philly. Esskay is out, Dietz & Watson is in. Esskay, founded in Baltimore in 1858, has been serving dogs at Ravens concession stands since the stadium opened in 1998. But Philadelphia-based Dietz & Watson just landed the three-year contract. The concession change has brought as much attention to hot dogging as Ray Lewis' last pre-game introduction. By punting the perceived hometown frank, the Ravens risk inciting Baltimoreans to the point that they resemble their famously unruly counterparts in Philly.

Had dinner recently with Brooks Robinson. Eddie Murray showed, too. Robinson was just what you'd expect: unassuming, complementary, easy to get along with. The same for Murray: reliable, intense, making a statement from beginning to end. Each handled the menu with aplomb: Esskay Orioles chicken dogs for old No. 5, and Esskay Orioles beef dogs for Eddie. A handful of Herr's Old Bay potato chips on the side, a Berger cookie or two to wrap things up, and we had a Baltimore meal fit for Edna Turnblad, with the fat content to match.

By day, George Parr was a meat cutter and sausage maker. By night, he was Father Christmas. He donned a white beard and a red suit, and rang sleigh bells throughout the streets of Highlandtown as a 15-year-old. He knocked on doors and posed for pictures. Everyone welcomed Santa into their homes on Christmas Eve. Years later, he arrived on a boat for the first Christmas at Harborplace. The man who insisted that Santa-print shower curtains hang in his bathroom, and that his house be lighted by a thousand miniature lights, died of a stroke Wednesday at his Perry Hall home.

A young friend told me she wanted to "catch the energy" when she and her fiance bought a Belnord Avenue rowhouse above Patterson Park in East Baltimore. Her enthusiastic description of its open floor plans, bamboo wood floors and other renovation must-haves piqued my curiosity. That interest must be catching. As I walked along the neighborhood's streets recently, I was not alone. A production company from HGTV, the house and garden cable network, was filming. The park was full of dog walkers and moms with baby carriages.
