The dinner was supposed to be a celebration of sorts, a reward for hard-working Red Cross emergency service workers and volunteers. Instead it became an emergency of its own. Gonzalo Hernandez and Ken Smallwood, both employees of the Red Cross of Central Maryland, had just finished helping 20 families involved in a five-alarm apartment fire in Baltimore City.

A 16-year-old boy was pronounced dead last night at Sinai Hospital, apparently after choking on bags of suspected cocaine he tried to swallow while being chased by undercover narcotics officers, city police said. The youth, whose name was withheld until relatives were notified, was observed in a drug transaction by undercover police officers near the corner of Park Heights Avenue and Cold Spring Lane shortly after 7 p.m., said homicide Detective Al Marcus. When a second team of undercover drug officers who monitored the scene approached him on foot, the youth fled, said Officer Sheri Albrecht, a police spokeswoman.

After John Giannetti performed the Heimlich maneuver on Jim Rosapepe, we all wondered if the bitter political rivals would lose their lust for each other's jugular. Not to worry. "I SAVED HIS LIFE, and this is the thanks I get!" reads a Giannetti flier, which shows the state senator splattered with mud. "A few months ago, while my opponent was having dinner with lobbyists, I had to perform the Heimlich maneuver to rescue him from choking on lobster. Even if he isn't grateful, he still shouldn't attack me this way."
