All I can say is, thank God the pope doesn't hit town till next month. There's been way too much excitement in Charm City, all balled into a couple of weeks, and I think I'm getting angina. First, we had Cal Week, in which all the supernatural forces of the cosmos blew into Baltimore, turned Camden Yards into Olympus, boiled the waters of the Patapsco and silenced all the cicadas. (No exaggeration.)Now, it's Election Week, featuring only the most fascinating and hotly contested city primary in decades.

The 85-year-old Baltimore Evening Sun, once described as "the rollicking son of the staid old lady, the morning Sun," will cease publication Sept. 15, the publisher said yesterday.The evening paper's circulation has fallen by 100,000 copies since 1987, the victim of changing reader habits, the company said. But the loss will be offset by a thorough redesign and expansion of the morning Sun, which has been enjoying strong circulation gains, said Mary Junck, publisher and chief executive officer of The Baltimore Sun Co. "It was an extremely difficult decision to make, although I think many people in the community have expected it for some time," she said.
