"Fatti Maschii, Parole Femine," reads the Maryland State Seal, carrying the motto of its founders, the Calvert family: "Manly deeds, womanly voices."Extraordinary advice that, for while boldness and passion may fuel our actions, often we must temper our intensity with measured, disciplined, decorous speech if our inner vision is ever to be made real."Manly Deeds, Womanly Voices: Activism, Empowerment and Change in the Pre-Civil Rights Period, 1895-1963," a highly informative and touching exhibit just opened at the Banneker-Douglass Museum in Annapolis, does a masterful job of showing us that this duality of voices and deeds was an underlying theme of the African-American experience for much of our century.

DIRE consequences are predicted should 60 inner-city families be relocated to Baltimore County suburban neighborhoods. But the heavens didn't fall on similar occasions in the past.The clergymen's protest against racial exclusion at Gwynn Oak Amusement Park, on July 4, 1963, was supposed to bring the destruction of thousands of businesses. I remember it vividly. My minister, Rabbi Morris Lieberman of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation, was a leader of the protest, and I had to defend his actions against members of the congregation who disapproved of a rabbi practicing what he preached.

When three men attacked, punched and robbed a man of his cellphone near downtown last weekend, the muggers apparently forgot about the hundreds of surveillance cameras watching over many of Baltimore's street corners. One of them captured the mugging, and police quickly arrested two men and recovered the stolen cellphone from a suspect's pants pocket. Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III told the story at a budget presentation Monday, in part to argue for the necessity of the camera program.

Michael Ridgely remembers being able to walk to Gwynn Oak Park as a child to fish and lying in his bed at night listening to the screams coming from the park's roller coaster. The park began in 1895 as a picnic grove on Gwynn Falls, nestled between Howard Park in the city and Woodlawn in Baltimore County. It evolved into a bustling amusement park for children from the 1920s to the 1950s. The 63-acre amusement park was built as a "trolley park." Parks at the turn of the century were often at the end of a trolley line to ensure riders.
