Baltimore police officers responding to a call for a suspicious death two blocks from the Pimlico Race Course on Friday found the body of a man who had been shot and possibly left on the front porch of a house for as long as 12 hours. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said officers had searched the area about 1:30 a.m. Friday after someone called 911 to report hearing gunshots. But he said the officers found nothing. Detectives do not yet know if the gunshots from early Friday were related to the body found in the afternoon, but Guglielmi said detectives were investigating that possibility.

By Preakness Saturday, every last Christmas tree pine needle has to be out of my house. I also have to cut my first rose of the season. It's also the day when the winter rugs must disappear down into my cellar. I live by a Baltimore calendar wherein the Christmas holiday season, late winter and a cool, wet spring have a way of mushing together. By mid-May, it's time for a change. I make the time to clean, tear up the house and find the last holiday light bulbs that might have rolled under the sofa.

THIS WEEK'S news contained a story about several of the Baltimore neighborhoods where I often walk, bank, shop and dine - the Mount Vernon-Penn Station-Bolton Hill section of the city. Tucked within the story was a comment from someone who said these neighborhoods needed a change of streetlight, perhaps outdoor lamps on a more human scale, lights geared to the sidewalk, not automobiles. Amen. Ever since the city ripped out the graceful old streetlights I knew in my youth, I've been a critic of the aluminum poles and their ugly fluorescent glow.
