Baltimore placed dead ninth in Southern Living's online poll to determine the South's "tastiest town. " Baltimore placed behind, in order, Lafayette, La., Louisville, Ky., New Orleans, Charleston, S.C., Charlottesville, Va., Houston, Birmingham, Ala. and Decatur, Ga. Baltimore did place ahead of Raleigh, N.C. in the poll. Eat it, Wolfpack. This is almost as satisfying as eliminating the Red Sox from the playoffs. Nine is fine. The poll results are here . The April issue of Southern Living featuring the "Tastiest Towns in the South" goes on newsstands on March 23, but you can preview the magazine's coverage of Baltimore's dining scene, including " The Perfect Eating Day in Baltimore, " with stops at Greg's Bagels, Thames Street Oyster House and Woodberry Kitchen, and a Baltimore-inspired recipe for fried soft-shell crabs benedict .

"Journey's End," R.C. Sherriff's often-revived play from 1928, is set in the trenches of World War I. Focusing on a British infantry unit, where class distinctions are neatly maintained and personal battles can be intense inside the dugout, this incisive work largely avoids cliché and contrivance, even when dealing with the inevitable deaths. Fells Point Corner Theatre's staging of "Journey's End" reflects well on the company (and reaffirms the value of community theater)

RALEIGH, N.C. -All week it seemed, Debbie Yow had been thinking about her trip here. It wasn't really dread. It wasn't fear. But there was an anxiety - an uncertainty even - as Yow packed her bags and returned to Raleigh. She'll never forget her previous two trips to town, and truth be told, she doesn't really want to. The first was in early January. Then just as now, she didn't really think of it as a goodbye. "I wouldn't let myself go there," says Yow, Maryland's athletic director.
