"In Our Humble Opinion: Car Talk's Click and Clack Rant and Rave," by Tom and Ray Magliozzi ( Perigee, 268 pages, $19.95) National Public Radio's most listened-to -- and most delicious -- program is an indescribable amalgam of iconoclasm and practicality, of superbly competent advice on living with an automobile and outrageous counsel on joyfulness. This delightful collaboration in provocation has little to do with automobiles. The MIT-educated siblings who turned from bright futures in the ranks of university faculty and cyber-business to open a garage in Their Fair City, Cambridge, Mass.

The "state of the city" is a hot topic right now. In this paper and many social media sites, there's a lot of talk about Baltimore - Are we OK? Should we move? Should we dig in? The discussion eventually comes back to concern about crime and murder rates in our fair city. Reading all of this, one question kept coming to me: Where is the church? For the record, I'm aware that there are many churches doing great things in this town. And the church has always been a leader in providing charitable support for the less fortunate.

This time, I'm with Santoni. That is to say, I agree with Bob Santoni, the outspoken owner of the Baltimore supermarket that bears his family's name, that some members of the brain trust running our fair city have stepped through the looking glass. "They live in a fantasy world down at City Hall," Santoni said when asked about the latest scheme to nickel and dime people who live and work in Baltimore — a proposal by a young city councilman to impose a 10-cent fee for every plastic bag provided in a retail establishment.

Tonight, we celebrate the season with the lighting of Baltimore's Washington Monument. But unless we take needed action, we are at risk of losing this festive tradition - along with one of our city's most iconic landmarks. Sadly, the monument has fallen into disrepair and is in serious need of attention due to years of exposure to the elements. It has been closed for safety reasons since June 2010. If we fail to meet the challenge of restoring it, the nation's first monument to George Washington will accelerate its perilous decline and could forever go dark.

(Note to readers: Before sending an email to the editor of this page complaining that I or the editors don't know how to spell the name of our fair city, please know that the spelling "Baltemore," with an "e" instead of an "i," is intentional … read on to learn why.) I recently noticed that some local websites were announcing that July 30 was Baltimore's 284th birthday. Baltimore town was founded on July 30, 1729 - so they say. As a local historian, this came as news to me; I was unaware that July 30 was celebrated as Baltimore's birthday.

In a moment, you will hear the story of Georgia B. Martin and her exasperating efforts to get someone in government to help her remove a groundhog from her garden in historic Federal Hill. But first, I must think out loud, among patient readers of The Baltimore Sun, about how a groundhog got to Federal Hill in the first place. Federal Hill is in the city of Baltimore, surrounded by water on one side, and on the other three sides by a gentrified urban landscape of rowhouses, retail establishments, restaurants and many barrooms.

CHARLOTTE, N.C -- Syracuse forward C.J. Fair said Wednesday that he was "50-50" about leaving school after his junior year and making himself eligible for the NBA draft. "I was going back and forth every day. I was going to go, then I was going to stay," the City alum said Wednesday at the ACC's men's basketball media day. "I made my decision to come back the day of [the deadline]. " Fair said he chose to stay when others, including Maryland's Alex Len, left early. He wanted to improve his game, not necessarily just his draft stock.

SYRACUSE , N.Y. -- It was just like old times Saturday for Syracuse and Pittsburgh. But instead of fighting for supremacy in their old league, the Big East Conference, the Orange and Panthers were battling for bragging rights in their new league, the Atlantic Coast Conference. In a game reminiscent of the rough-and-tumble Big East but with first place in the ACC on the line, the No. 2 Orange rallied to defeat the No. 22 Panthers 59-54 before 30,046 fans at the Carrier Dome . Both teams entered the game with 4-0 records in the ACC. Pitt had won 14 of its previous 19 games against Syracuse , and five of its previous six at the Carrier Dome . Trailing 52-49, the Orange pulled within one on Jerami Grant 's two free throws.

Season's greetings, hon! Hard to believe 2012 is almost over. You know us - busy, busy! If we weren't opening a Ripley's "Odditorium," we were putting historic landmarks up for sale. When we weren't helping John Waters hitchhike across the country, we were hoarding Twinkies. We enjoyed watching the mids' "Gangnam Style" more than we'll admit, and we held our breath as Nik Wallenda tightroped the Inner Harbor. What. A. Year. We wanted to take a moment to catch you up on what we've been up to. The Ravens were in the Super Bowl!
