Shop till you drop, but not at the mall. That's the idea behind the sixth annual Miracle on Main Streets, a Baltimore-wide initiative that begins Tuesday and encourages residents to shop at local retailers and explore the city's neighborhoods. Managed by the Baltimore Development Corp. as part of its Baltimore Main Streets program, the Miracle campaign promotes shopping districts in 10 city neighborhoods: Belair-Edison, Brooklyn, East Monument Street, Federal Hill, Fell's Point, Hamilton-Lauraville, Highlandtown, Pennsylvania Avenue, Pigtown and Waverly.

I want to ask Jacoby Jones what we should call that one. I want to know if he's thought of a name for the play, the one that still has all of Baltimore buzzing today and all of Denver practically catatonic. You can't call it "The Catch" or the "Immaculate Reception" because it wasn't a great catch and it sure wasn't flawless and without blemish. This play was more like Jones thinking: Dear God, please don't let me drop this, because I'll never live it down and will be forced to live in an ashram with Ricky Williams for the rest of my life to escape the eternal shame.

Reggae music filled the air at Bohager's in Fells Point. Folks in Hawaiian shirts milled around the club's thatched-roof bar, or lined up for autographs and photos with several Baltimore Ravens players at Mac's Reggae Sunsplash 2001. Ravens player Michael McCrary played host at the party for his nonprofit organization, Mac's Miracle Fund. And who knew purple was such a tropical color? Folks sported plenty of Ravens paraphernalia -- and then some. Fans Vicki Williams and Colleen Martin had even painted their toenails purple.

Leave it to Maryland's state legislators to seize on the slightest pretext to play demagogue. They did it last week in the State House when they called a private Colorado company on the carpet for failing to work wonders at the troubled Hickey School for juveniles. How much time did these legislators give the company to perform this miracle? A mere 70 days.Since a constant parade of state officials have failed miserably for decades to improve matters at the Hickey School, it isn't surprising that a private company hired only on Sept.
