The man is really gone, but how to feel about this? Which is not to say people didn't like George Miller - "New York George" to many in Baltimore. The small-time bookie, ticket-scalper and street-walking bar-hopper (not hopping so much as sitting) could be mighty endearing despite - or maybe because of - his chummy hustling. New York George, very much of Baltimore, died May 29 at the age of 74. They say his legs just couldn't carry him anymore. They say he sort of gave up when he couldn't be New York George anymore.

I spotted Joe Gold, a man who had done much to help instigate the high quality of craft beer in the Baltimore region.

Although he's still teaching at UMBC and helping Villa Julie College with its athletic programs, he retired as UMBC's lacrosse coach.
