Looks like the French may not be flocking to Charm City any time soon. Seems Baltimore's not really a safe destination, at least as far as the French foreign ministry is concerned. Just as our state department warns about Americans traveling to certain places (it suggests avoiding North Korea, for example), the French are urged to exercise caution in certain U.S. locales. And what do the French say about Baltimore? "Considered a dangerous city except Downtown. " But don't feel too bad; few American cities fared much better.

The Ed Reed era is officially over in Baltimore, though the safety will always be considered one of the greatest Ravens players of all-time -- and arguably the most entertaining, as my colleague Childs Walker wrote today. In this excellent piece on Reed , Childs explained why he can't help but feel a little sadness now that Reed has joined the Houston Texans, because, in his words, Reed didn't want to just be “ordinary great.” Reed did it his way, especially when he had the ball in his hands -- a common occurrence -- making him fun for us to cover.

Simon Estes, a leading bass-baritone on opera and concert stages for a quarter century, last appeared in Baltimore at the Lyric Opera House about 15 years ago in a concert version of "Boris Godounov" with Sergiu Comissiona and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.Thanks to Morgan State University's Performing Arts Series directed by Nathan Carter, some 250 fans heard Estes in town yesterday at the Murphy Auditorium in a thrilling two-hour recital of 18 art songs, show tunes and spirituals.The graceful Wagnerian demonstrated that his largely European career, heavily immersed in the deep thickets of Wagner's "Ring" cycle and other operatic fare, had not spoiled his voice for the lighter but serious songs of Schubert, Brahms, Mozart, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Kern, or H.T. Burleigh arrangements of spirituals.

Amateur Kirk Lombardi ran his streak of accurate putting with a borrowed putter to four rounds, running in seven birdie putts in a 5-under-par 33-33-66 to grab a one-stroke lead in the first round of the Maryland Open at Beechtree Golf Club in Aberdeen yesterday. Jim Estes, a teaching pro at the Olney Golf Park, collected five birdies on his way to 67, followed by Phil Fairbanks and Jim Schouller at 68, and defender Chip Sullivan, 69.

The finale of “Homeland” Season 2 was an appropriately epic and totally off the wall conclusion to a narrative arc that prioritized constant, edge-of-your-seat dramatic momentum, even at the occasional cost of believability. First, the basics: The episode began at Carrie's aunt's picturesque cabin in the woods, the two lovebirds finally free to juggle produce and watch the sunset together. It's clear that Quinn is stalking them at their hideout, but they seem oblivious. They feel so safe that when Brody unearths a handgun in the cabin, Carrie removes the bullets and shoves the weapon back in the drawer.

Growing up in rural Longwood, Va., Dean Schwartz loved playing sports, especially football and soccer. Golf was never much on his radar, until he suffered a life-changing injury while serving in Iraq with the Virginia National Guard. A combat engineer with the Second Infantry Division in Mosul, Schwartz lost most of his left leg after a rocket-propelled grenade attack May 8, 2004. When he recovered enough to take an internship with Disabled Sports USA in Rockville, Schwartz learned of a program that teaches golf to wounded warriors.

Hoiles, who quit as manager of the independent York (Pa.) Revolution baseball team last month, has started a "sporting events management company" that will give amateur sportsmen and women the opportunity to hunt and fish with current and former athletes. The business also will manage youth sports camps. For its first outing, The Hoiles-Gladstone Group has arranged a five-day deer hunting trip next month with Hoiles and former Orioles Will Clark, Ben McDonald and Jamie Walker at the 7,000-acre North Fork Lodge on a Susquehanna River tributary in Pennsylvania.

Suddenly, it's hard out there to be a Hon. Honfest, this weekend's kitschy celebration of beehive hairdos, cat's-eye glasses and pearls, may be the city's biggest neighborhood festival. But as Honfest grows, so does the backlash against it. Some Hampden dwellers, local fashionistas and even John Waters - who helped perpetuate the image of the Hon as a Baltimore icon - are fed up with the 50,000-strong festival that began as a simple beauty pageant. Waters frowns on all the Hon hype. He said he won't use the word or the image in any of his scripts these days, and he doesn't think the city should get behind it either.

CHINCOTEAGUE, Va.-- --Wayne Estes woke up before dawn on the third day of his vacation, scarfed down an egg sandwich and doused himself in bug spray. He bucked the heat, putting on his spurs, leather boots, jeans and long-sleeved yellow shirt. Then he settled into the back of his red "cowboy Cadillac" pickup truck for what is, every year, the ride of his life. It is a ride that alternately breaks and warms little girls' hearts as Estes and his fellow "Saltwater Cowboys" round up the wild ponies on Assateague and drive them across the channel to this small Virginia island, where a lucky few can buy the foals at an auction today.

POTOMAC - As they walked to the sixth tee yesterday at the Tournament Players Club at Avenel, Craig Barlow asked Greg Norman about a long-forgotten event that Norman had won in Las Vegas. As they were talking, Norman was leading the $3.6 million Kemper Insurance Open by two shots. "I think it was 1986," recalled Norman, who was the No. 1 player in the world at the time. "I was just a young kid," said Barlow, who was working at the tournament as a teen-age standard bearer holding the scoreboard for Norman's group.

To most track insiders, it came as little surprise that Westminster placed two pole-vaulters among the top five at Monday's Class 4A-3A state meet in Landover. Since joining the Owls staff two years ago, former Woodlawn coach Dick Estes has made a habit of turning young, raw athletes into pole-vaulting standouts. "If a Carroll County person does well in the pole vault, he's got a lot to do with it," Westminster coach Jim Shank said. "He films kids literally every day, then takes it home and analyzes it. He's just a real student of the event."
