Pull up your pants and cut it out with the thrift stores, people -- Baltimore is among the worst dressed city in the country, according to Travel + Leisure. In a report from its June issue, the magazine says Baltimore should be ashamed of itself. Anchorage is the No. 1 worst-dressed city. Salt Lake City rings in at No. 2. But poor Baltimore. The magazine apparently doesn't care for the Hon look. Here's what they say: "In a city judged to have fairly offbeat residents, there are bound to be questionable fashion choices.

Baltimore's Public Works department is asking city residents to vote to assure Baltimore a good showing in a new Travel + Leisure poll. But what they seem to be forgetting is that voting residents seems to be the very thing that doomed Baltimore's standing in the America's Favorite Cities survey last year. "Public Works sanitation workers work very hard to keep this city clean," department director Alfred H. Foxx said in an email blast on Friday. "Please send this flyer to your family and relatives -- let's get a true reflection of Baltimore in the news and not let such a small number of people cast Baltimore in a negative light!"

LABOR DAY: An increasingly inconsequential national holiday, signifying little more than the end of summer and the beginning of school, on which union officials attempt to recapture their lost relevance and C-SPAN viewers endure gratuitous appearances by the U.S. secretary of labor mouthing canned platitudes about how much all of us faceless little human cogs mean to the smooth functioning of America's economic engine. Leisure Day: An imaginary holiday, not yet declared, on which discerning individuals celebrate leisure as the essential precondition for the nourishment of mind and spirit, the betterment of human life, the attainment of earthly happiness.

If the julep ceremonial previously described is too fussy for you, I offer a traditional drinking game from the Commonwealth.  Two people go into a room. Each has a bottle of bourbon.* They sit at leisure, drinking and talking.  When the whiskey has been consumed, one of them stands up and walks out of the room. The other tries to guess who left.    *Please, no Tennessee whiskey.

Residents of Leisure World in Silver Spring might be forced to abandon the long-standing name of the "active adult" community and its landmark steel globe if they aren't willing to pay for the right to use them. Leisure World has been a Montgomery County fixture for 44 years, and its 8,500 residents are considered one of Maryland's most potent political forces. But the daughter of Leisure World's developer says her company owns the trademark to the globe and name. After providing more than 40 years of free use, the company needs to protect its rights to the brand, which earns fees from real estate agents around the country who advertise themselves as "Leisure World specialists," she says.

Well, there's no place for Baltimore to go but up — at least according to the America's Favorite Cities 2010 survey recently released by Travel+Leisure magazine. The annual ranking included Charm City this year for the first time since 2003. Alas, the results show visitors were not charmed by Baltimore. Of the 35 cities in the survey, Baltimore ranked at or near the bottom in a host of categories, according to visitors — and residents. Categories included culture, food, nightlife, shopping, people and quality of life.

Amid stubborn rumors that she would soon be replaced, Anna Wintour, the legendary editor of Vogue magazine, was asked, while sitting on a journalism panel, what it would take for her to quit the business. Wintour answered that her journalist father told her she would know when it was time to quit when she became "too angry" to continue, by which I think she meant "frustrated," but it wasn't clear. But this was the rest of her answer: "The day I get too angry is the day I take up gardening."
