NEW YORK -- This morning, when Peter Walsh opens his doors, another St. Patrick's Day will begin in the most open-minded Irish bar in Manhattan. A bar that features a Jewish doctor buying breakfast for anyone willing to recite a poem by W.B. Yeats, and a crowd of devoted neighborhood customers, who are, naturally, Dominican.The scene at Coogan's is always a paradox, at once fiercely multicultural and fiercely Irish, so why should today be any different? For a decade, the bar has prospered in a neighborhood -- Washington Heights -- that is increasingly poor, black and Dominican.

Susan Reimer 's column on elevator etiquette omits the cardinal rule of etiquette I saw riding a multitude of elevators over the years in New York City ( "Elevator etiquette dropping fast," May 16). In Class A office buildings like the Chrysler Building, men - in that hard-boiled, the faster-the-better city - have preserved an act of unexpected politeness. No gentleman steps into an elevator before a lady in New York. Ladies board first. How 1886! Eileen Pollock, Baltimore - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

Two weeks after a federal judge declared New York City's stop-and-frisk policing unconstitutional is an odd time to ask the question, but here goes: Would New York-style stop-and-frisk policing reduce Baltimore homicides to such a low level that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's goal of growing the city by 10,000 families would start to look plausible, even overly modest? More directly: Would a general stop-and-frisk order have saved Delmonte Thomas' life? As of Friday, he was Baltimore's latest homicide victim — not even 20 years old, gunned down in West Baltimore a few blocks from Coppin State University, on Westwood Avenue, about 10:20 p.m. Thursday.

WITH THE MIGHT of city voters' mandate, Mayor Martin O'Malley made clear yesterday that he won't tinker with a radical crime-fighting plan recommended by his consultants. This is the reality the City Council and others need to take into account as the process for naming the successor to Commissioner Ronald L. Daniel moves ahead. They may argue about the wisdom of the mayor's choice of Edward T. Norris, a former New York City deputy commissioner, to run the Baltimore Police Department. But the 152-page crime-fighting blueprint, in Mr. O'Malley's judgment, is non-negotiable.
