The Baltimore Sun 's restaurants blog) and nearby workers. There were some waits, and some things ran out, but only a true crank would mind now. One short flight up from street level, Mekong Delta's brightly painted but sparely furnished dining room even looks like the kind of place that draws a loyal following. There are prints and paintings of the old country on the sunny yellow walls, a few other decorative touches behind the partly concealed kitchen. Word will keep getting out and, soon, Mekong Delta is going to need some more help.

It was the kind of mission that Warrant Officer George Carlton Bloodworth flew daily in Vietnam. But on Sept. 20, 1969, it went badly wrong. Bloodworth was piloting the second of two scout helicopters on a reconnaissance mission over the Mekong Delta in South Vietnam, speeding 100 feet off the ground, when the lead helicopter was shot down. As he circled back to search for its two-man crew, his own helicopter was shot down, and he was hit by ground fire. Still, he found the downed crew and helped lead the wounded pilot, the pilot's crew chief and his own crew chief through withering fire to safety.

N ot so long ago, Italian, Chinese and Greek food were considered delicacies. Now they're take-out (and even chain restaurant) fodder, and Baltimore's international dining offerings have expanded to every continent, save Antarctica. (Perhaps that's coming soon.) Still, it's easy to stick with the standards instead of being adventurous and sampling cuisine from other corners of the world. So, we've picked five restaurants that not only make food from less-familiar parts, but also do it really well.

Self-confidence is as attractive in a restaurant as it is in a person. The best places to dine both expensively and frugally more often than not turn out to be the product of someone's clear vision. You can tell you're in one of these places when you're relaxed and satisfied. Someone else has done the hard work. Servers feel this too - good service hardly ever happens in an uncertain setting. And the only thing that really matters about ambience is that it's been thought about.

PITTSBURGH - The government of Vietnam stinks. But it doesn't stink nearly as much as it did just a few years ago, and it is likely to stink less in the near future. If we are shrewd, we can accelerate the rate at which the government of Vietnam de-stinks. But we must have the patience to realize that change will come at an Asian pace, not an American one. There will be no significant moves toward genuine free enterprise, human rights, or democracy until the war generation in the Communist Party leadership has passed away.

A hotshot quintet called Classical Jam — Jennifer Choi, violin; Cyrus Beroukhim, viola; Wendy Law, cello; Marco Granados, flute; Justin Hines, percussion — was formed recently "to reach out to diverse audiences" and promote classical music "to people who feel that they cannot relate to it, or for one reason or another, are not exposed to it." One way Classical Jam fulfills that mission is through collaborative projects and the creation of new music. The ensemble is heading to Maryland for a residency next week at the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda and a side trip to Baltimore that promises interesting sounds for veteran and novice classical music listeners alike.
