Clearly. this is a man who exudes awareness of what life is about, and your article encompasses his rich and varied contributions. Carl I. Thistel, Baltimore

In the food world, the battle between serious carnivores and vegetarians is a famous one, with meat-eaters often claiming that without meat, food simply can't be that tasty. Clarksville restaurant Great Sage, which this year celebrates a decade of vegan, organic cookery, proves that even without meat, a meal can be hearty, satisfying and, yes, delicious. Though sometimes the restaurant's laid-back vibe veers into just-plain-slow territory, overall, dinner at Great Sage could win over even the most die-hard meat lover.

Thursday marks the 133rd anniversary of the birth of H.L. Mencken, the influential writer, journalist, satirist and social critic known as the "Sage of Baltimore," who died at the age of 75 in 1956. In a video from 2012 (also above), The Sun 's Frederick Rasmussen talks about Mencken's life and work, discussing the Scopes Trial, bathtub hoax, Mencken's first beer after the repeal of Prohibition, his coverage of presidential nominating conventions and more. Rasmussen opens the video as follows: Henry Louis Mencken was born and raised in Baltimore, grew up in Union Square, and of course went on to become a celebrated American journalist.

JODY CUTLER sat amid a jumble of boxes, tables and chairs while workers peppered her with questions and vendors asked directions. It was 11 days before the opening of Great Sage, a vegetarian restaurant in Clarksville. "I liken it to doing a production," said the former drama instructor. "You spend your whole rehearsal period thinking, `This is never going to happen.' And you work around the clock and it comes out, and it's marvelous." Together with business partners Jeff Kaufman and his wife, Holly Kaufman, Cutler and a newly hired staff opened Great Sage on June 22. The restaurant is the third collaborative business endeavor for Cutler, 36, and Jeff Kaufman, 35. The first was Roots Market, which opened in 2000; the second was Nest, a gift shop that opened in 2003.

AS A 15-YEAR resident of this relaxed and affectionate old city, I am continually bemused by the thriving cultism inspired by H.L. Mencken in Baltimore. In this 40th anniversary year of his death, a standing-room-only throng gathered last Saturday at a local book emporium for yet another veneration of the Sage of Baltimore.Sagacious or not, Mencken was a resolute practitioner and defender of heresy, so I trust that he would salute my blasphemy in assaulting -- well, the Sage himself.First a concession: Mencken's ''The American Language'' merits due recognition as a magisterial work of scholarship.

If Sage Karam had not won those weekend go-kart races in Charlotte, N.C., as an 8-year-old, he might be getting ready for his final high school football season in Nazareth, Pa. If Karam had not won the Skip Barber School Shootout in Sebring, Fla., five years later, he might be thinking about wrestling in college, as his father did, rather than eyeing the Indianapolis 500. Those two events proved pivotal in the direction Karam's life has taken...

To understand what Fred Lazarus accomplished during his 35 years as president of the Maryland Institute College of Art , one need only look at the gleaming concrete-and-glass structure housing the school's Brown Center for new media. The rakishly angled building rising above the school's Mount Royal Avenue campus symbolizes the future of both art and higher education in America as surely as the stately neoclassical building across the street from it reflects its past. Mr. Lazarus, who announced this week that he will step down as president in 2014, had the genius to see that future and the skill to build it in Baltimore.

Matthew and Joan Lallo never intended to open a restaurant in Baltimore. But considering the interesting menu and top-notch service at their Mount Washington spot, the Blue Sage Cafe & Wine Bar, Baltimore is lucky that they did. Blue Sage opened in June in the space formerly occupied by the short-lived restaurant, The Falls. Matthew, a former freelance food critic for The Baltimore Sun, and his wife, Joan, were regular lunch customers at The Falls. They were such big fans of the restaurant - and its location - that after it closed in September 2011, Matt Lallo tracked down the building's landlord and signed a lease.

Sage Karam, driving the Andretti Autosport Honda, streaked to the checkered flag Sunday morning, beating Jack Hawksworth in his Team Pelfrey Mazda by 10.170 seconds on the streets of Baltimore.  It was quite an effort as teams coped with the ever-changing street course conditions surrounding the light-rail tracks on Pratt St. This was Karam's third victory of the season and his second on a street circuit. The win moved him back to second in the points championship, behind Hawksworth, who won the Mazda race Saturday.

Blue Sage Cafe and Wine Bar opened on June 1 in Mount Washington in the Kelly Avenue space that was formerly The Falls (and before that Freida's Kitchen and, for years, the Mt. Washington Food Market). I've been hearing about Blue Sage - and read about it on a few other blogs -- but I kept not picking up the phone to check it out. So, I was happy to hear from Ricky Johnson, the bar and front-of-house manager at Blue Sage, who filled me in on the background and early days of Blue Sage.

It was a "duh" moment. I was staring at an herb garden, trying to figure out which plant, if any, was sage. This was stuff I should know. A car mechanic is supposed to be able to distinguish between a carburetor and a fuel injector. A copy editor is supposed to be able to spot gerunds. And a food guy is supposed to be able to name that herb. Usually I employ a time-honored system to find herbs. I go to the produce section of a grocery store, I pick up packages of herbs and I read the labels.

An ancient role of the poet is to transmit a culture's stories from one generation to the next, a process that once was almost exclusively oral. The tradition of Anglo-American poetry is long removed from its oral roots, though we may hear it at times in secular and gospel ballads, the blues and work songs. When I first met Edgar Silex a decade ago, shortly after he had left his job as a systems engineer for Hughes Aircraft to pursue a graduate degree in creative writing at the University of Maryland, one aspect of his poems that struck me was their story-telling function.

A really good summer cocktail is a balanced equation. It should taste like the season itself: clean, simple, light. It should also look the part: bright, fresh, uncomplicated. It's tough to find a drink that embodies these traits without overdoing the typical sweet-and-syrupy mix. Enter Townhouse Kitchen and Bar's stylishly simple Sage Coach. The Sage Coach reflects the vibe of this newly opened Harbor East upscale-but-casual space. "It's really easy to drink and yet goes with the experience we're trying to give our customers - something of fine quality without the stuffy, fine-dining feel," said general manager Tina Lavelle.

Locked in a metal filing cabinet in The Sun 's library is a sheaf of manila folders packed with typed pages, copies of paste-up sheets and loops of pink, punched tapes - artifacts of H. L. Mencken's coverage of what he dubbed "the Scopes monkey trial. " Mencken was in poor health by the time The Sun 's offices moved to this brick building on Calvert Street. But more than a half-century after his death, his presence remains strongly felt here. His face, waggish and clutching a cigar between his lips, gazes down on those who pass through The Sun 's lobby.
