Hi, I'm Abraham Lincoln Name recognition during elections is crucial, often giving incumbent candidates an advantage. However, a few newcomers in Baltimore's Sept. 9 primary may be riding such nomenclatorial coattails to the benefit of their City Council races. The most notable is Nicholle O'Malley - no relation to Mayor Martin O'Malley. She did at one time work for his administration, but is now a 1st District council candidate. Don't confuse the signs. A few others: Three Currans (not related)

European trendies adapting good old American stylesMILAN - Forget that nonsense you've maybe heard about how European women wouldn't be caught dead wearing jeans on the street. Blue jeans almost always faded, as opposed to acid-washed or straight-from-the-store indigo and a snazzy, blazer-style jacket is the uniform of choice among shoppers of all ages in the Milan Galleria.And virtually every woman who isn't wearing jeans is wearing a short skirt and fishnet stockings.(Incidentally, the Rizzoli bookstore in the Galleria devotes an entire window to "Rossella," by Alexandra Ripley.

John Charles Thomas was part Enrico Caruso, part Bing Crosby.A Peabody Conservatory student from 1909 to 1912 and a sometime Eastern Shore resident, the renowned baritone was as adept singing spirituals and folk songs, which he did on such now-golden radio programs as the "Bell Telephone Hour" and the "Westinghouse Program," as he was singing opera.Now, the Peabody has mounted two exhibitions on the life and career of Thomas, who died in 1960, marking the centenary of his birth in Meyersdale, Pa. The exhibits, "John Charles Thomas: An American Classic," are running simultaneously at Peabody's Galleria Piccola and the Historical Society of Talbot County in Easton through Oct. 17 before traveling to the San Francisco Performing Arts Library and Museum in January.
