Usually when I arrive at an airport, as so many holiday travelers will next week, my stomach is churning. I have anxiety about getting through security and making my flight. Most airlines have stopped serving real, complimentary meals in coach. My solution: Find some takeout fare at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport to soothe my stomach. Here is what I found, terminal by terminal, beyond security. Chesapeake Bay Roasting Co. Location --Terminal D Phone --410-859-1154 Hours --5 a.m.-8:30 p.m. daily This coffee shop offers pre-packaged sandwiches.

Maybe it was all those fishy lunches I ate as a kid, but on summer afternoons I have a yen for a tuna-salad sandwich. I know there are upscale versions of this sandwich out there that mix chunks of high-quality tuna with walnuts and grapes, or with fennel, tarragon and capers. But on this go-round I kept it simple: canned tuna salad on rye with lettuce and tomato, served at downtown eateries. During a sunny noon hour when tourists were meandering through Harborplace, office workers were dodging Redwood Street construction crews, and the lunchtime throngs filled Lexington Market, I went fishing for tuna-salad sandwiches.

I was momentarily confused by the sign behind the lunch counter at the Charlesmead Pharmacy. "Please Do Not Spin," the sign said. I finally realized it was not some kind of directive to political advisers. Rather, it was a response to the flock of kids who have, no doubt, sat down and promptly spun themselves off one of the old-fashioned, green counter stools. In this era of huge chain drugstores, Charlesmead remains a kinder, gentler throwback that has been a fixture in the North Baltimore area of Cedarcroft for decades.

Every neighborhood should have something like the Blue Cow Cafe. Tucked in one of Columbia's many neighborhood centers, the family-run cafe sells newspapers, coffee drinks, bagels in the morning, peanut-butter sandwiches for the kids, and a wide-ranging and tasty selection of salads and sandwiches for the rest of us. The cafe is run by Karen Blue, who grew up nearby in Columbia's Thunder Hill neighborhood, and her husband/chef, Mark. They've worked a miracle to turn a sterile, fluorescent-lighted space into a cozy eatery with artwork for sale on the walls and checker tables ready for action.

So is a $15 can of gourmet tuna really better than a $1.89 can of Bumblebee? We asked a panel of food experts: C.J. Gabrielson, sous-chef at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant; Nick Hoang, corporate sushi chef for Red Coral restaurant; Elizabeth Large, The Sun's restaurant critic; and Rob Kasper, The Sun's food columnist. They sampled Conservas Alegria bonita tuna in olive oil from Dean & Deluca, Dave's albacore tuna in olive oil from Whole Foods Market, Ortiz bonito tuna in olive oil from Zingerman's and Bumblebee's albacore tuna in oil. The verdict: it depends on what you want to do with the tuna.

Sascha's at Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert St., (410) 332-0033. The concept is simple. The fixed price of $11 buys a seasonally appropriate soup, a choice of eight entrees, salad, good French bread and one of several simple desserts. The buffet opens an hour and a half before Center Stage performances, but you don't need a ticket to the play to eat there. Judging from the night we were there, the best bet might be one of the interesting cold entrees, like the Bangkok chicken salad with tabbouleh and marinated Oriental vegetables or the open-faced shrimp salad sandwich with two salads.

J.J. "Jake" Pickle, 91, who helped pass major Social Security reform in the 1980s and was a senior Democrat on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee during three decades in Congress, died Saturday at his home in Austin, Texas. He was elected in 1963 to the House seat Lyndon B. Johnson once held. As chairman of the Social Security Subcommittee, he helped pass Social Security reform in 1983 that eased the system's financial woes by raising the age for full benefits from 65 to 67. Mr. Pickle was a Naval officer during World War II, serving in the Pacific.

I try to accommodate him because we don't get together very often, but that usually means spending at least $15 apiece.One day, I didn't have $15 to spend on lunch so I hedged a bit. I insisted we have lunch at Natural Gourmet Classics on Charles Street.
