Each week, The Sun's John McIntyre presents a moderately obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar — another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary. Use it in a sentence in a comment on his blog, You Don't say, and the best sentence will be featured next week. This week's word: PANEGYRIC Praise does not come easily to copy editors. If no man is a hero to his valet, few writers are heroes to their copy editors, who, like the valet, must pick up the strewn garments and make the client presentable for public display.

From the outside, Don Pedro's Musica Latina on Broadway looks like anything but a music store. You might guess it's a country-western emporium. Maybe even a secondhand sports-equipment store. Inside its display window, there are soccer balls, wool leopard-print comforters and dozens of sneaker boxes. But behind all that is where its real product lies: some 200,000 CDs from everywhere in Latin America. For years, Baltimore's ethnic music stores like this one were spared from the digital music revolution that consumed their American counterparts because of their deep catalogs.

Greece is a popular summer destination, but with recent concerns about the nation's economy and threats of a strike by air traffic controllers there, some travelers may have crossed it off the list this year. No worries. It turns out you can experience a little piece of Greece just by crossing the Bay Bridge this weekend for the 21st annual Greek Festival in Ocean City. Yes, I know it will be hard to make it all the way to Friday without calling in sick, but this fun festival is worth the wait.

A 22-year-old woman was injured early Saturday after a vehicle fleeing police drove onto the sidewalk after the second night of the Greek folk festival, police said. Police were called to the 4800 block of Eastern Ave. about 2 a.m. after a woman said a man who made a lewd comment at her pulled out a handgun and pointed it at her and her boyfriend, according to an incident report. As witnesses notified security for the Greek Folk Festival, the man and three others fled in a 1999 BMW. With the 500 block of S. Ponca St. closed to traffic because of the festival, the car veered onto the sidewalk and up a ramp in front of St. Nicholas Church.
