The elderly woman who lives in the van in the shopping center on 41st Street in Hampden is Harriet Kahn. It says "Kahn" on the vanity plates of her van, but "Can" is how she pronounces her name because, she says, the softer "ah" (as in "Kaan") gives her name a pretentiousness she dislikes. Ms. Kahn is at most 5 feet tall; she says she'll be 80 in late March. She has small hands. Her hair is straight and gray; she keeps it wrapped with a scarf on cold days. She has sharp features and dark eyes with a certain savvy spark.

John D. Danko stops in mid-conversation to note the sound ringing through the house. The small brass bell chimes from behind the face of the grandfather clock in the foyer, perhaps the same sound people would have heard in their homes while waiting for word from the battlegrounds of the War of 1812. "Back in those days, this is what they heard," says Danko, after the clock has chimed nine times on the hour. Then there's only the tick-tick-tick of the seconds as two weights and a pendulum wrought in cast iron keep the time using technology that dates to the days of the Battle of North Point and Fort McHenry's defense of Baltimore harbor.

The House version of Gov. Martin O'Malley's same-sex marriage bill was introduced in the House of Delegates this morning shortly before the governor gave his annual state of the state address. The House bill went in with 56 co-sponsors, including House Speaker Michael E. Busch, who rarely puts his name on legislation. New cosponsors this year also include Baltimore County delegates Jon Cardin and Adrienne A Jones, both Democrats. Some names dropped off, including Baltimore City delegates Jill Carter and Frank Conaway Jr., both Democrats.

An 81-year-old Rodgers Forge woman was subject to threats last week from a man who claimed she had won $5.6 million - then later threatened to burn down her house, according to a police report. Police said that between 3 and 3:40 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, a man called the woman's home and told her she had won a $5.6 million prize. The woman declined and hung up, but the man called back multiple times. Eventually, the woman's son answered the phone, and the caller changed his story - he demanded that $10,000 be delivered to Dunkirk Road by 4 p.m. or he would kill the woman and her son and burn their house down.

There was no mistaking Mary Schaub as she passed along the streets of Charles Village. I never saw her in any footwear but high heels. This time of the year, she might be sporting a mink stole over a tailored suit. She was easy to chat up and seemed to invite casual conversation at the bus stop. She had a tradition-heavy Baltimore job. She was a pari-mutuel clerk, another way of saying she sold or cashed tickets at Pimlico or Laurel. We often spoke of the pleasures and perils of playing the ponies.
