Baltimore -- The Greatest City in America, The City That Reads and Believes and Gets In On It -- might want to try on another civic slogan. This one was crafted by city bail bondsman Mark J. Adams, who writes: "A couple of years ago, the idiots who run conventions and tourism in Baltimore hired an outside firm to come up with a slogan to promote Baltimore. They spent a fortune with some out-of-town company that came up with the slogan, 'Baltimore: Get in on it.' "I had my own slogan that they didn't quite accept.

If Baltimore can repeat the successes of Sailabration and the Star-Spangled Spectacular on a continuing basis, what an achievement it would be ( "A spectacular weekend for Baltimore," Sept. 15)! I live at the Inner Harbor and enjoyed watching my neighborhood become the focal point of the weekend's historic commemoration. As far as I know, everything went well, and it was a delight to witness such a sea of happy faces everywhere. Recently, Councilman James Kraft suggested a new slogan for the city - something like "Baltimore - Birthplace of The Star-Spangled Banner.

When I read the article on the front page of The Sun about our governor as a possible future presidential candidate, I was thrilled ("O'Malley takes a tryout in SC," Mar. 24). Just think: our governor as president. As a matter of fact, I'm so moved by that thought that I'd like to offer this slogan for him to use for his campaign. "I never met a tax I didn't like.

Oh, say can you see a new slogan for Baltimore City? Councilman James B. Kraft can. He petitioned his fellow City Council members to pass a resolution Monday declaring a new official motto for the city: "Baltimore - Birthplace of The Star-Spangled Banner.

Maryland drivers may soon advertise the state as the "Home of Our National Anthem." The state Senate unanimously approved a bill Friday that would have most plates carry the slogan starting Oct. 1. The measure would exclude special registration plates. Maryland last displayed a slogan on its standard-issue license plate in the mid-1980s, celebrating the 350th anniversary of the state's founding as a colony. Maryland native Francis Scott Key penned "The Star-Spangled Banner" almost 200 years ago after the British attacked Baltimore's Fort McHenry.

As I drive around Howard County, I constantly see the Choose Civility magnets on the back of cars, mini-vans, trucks and I think it's wonderful. Unfortunately, I'm also seeing an increase of aggressive driving, too. From excessive speeding, to tailgating to inappropriate gestures; is this necessary? We all need to slow down, calm down and choose civility when driving. We are a community and, to be honest, sooner or later someone is going to get hurt. So the next time you want to speed, curse or whatever because someone cost you 15 seconds more on the road, think about this: Those 15 seconds could be time that you spend listening to a song, telling a joke with your family or even just be the reason you arrived at your destination safely.

IN the current mayoralty campaign, Mayor Schmoke's slogan is "Get on Board." Clarence "Du" Burns' is "Du Knows Baltimore." William Swisher's slogan is "The Best for Baltimore."These are slogans that just blow you away, aren't they? But then few campaign slogans from Baltimore or Maryland election campaigns have entered into community memory.One of the few memorable slogans came out of the 1966 gubernatorial campaign of George P. Mahoney. Exploiting the tense racial climate of those years, Mahoney sought to pander to some white voters' fears about integrated housing.

Got a problem? Get a slogan.There's no difficulty that can't be put to rights with a few catchy words. There's no failing so intractable that it can't be treated with a finely tuned phrase. The world might be falling apart, but if you can put out a punchy slogan then clearly all will be well. Something like, "The world: We're in this one together."The best thing about slogans is they do the work for you. Is the world beset by mistrust and misunderstanding? The solution is easy.

Some people revealed their inner poet: "Stash it, Don't Trash it." "Litter -- It makes the City and Planet Bitter."

How's "Baltimore - Birthplace of the Star-Spangled Banner" sound for a new city slogan? City Councilman James B. Kraft is expected to introduce legislation at Monday's meeting to set a new official slogan to "celebrate Baltimore's essential link to our national anthem. " Kraft, who represents Southeast Baltimore, is asking for immediate adoption of a resolution to set the new slogan. He's also expected to file a companion bill. It's too soon to tell if the slogan will have more staying more power than the city's last: "Baltimore: A Great Place to Grow," which was unveiled by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in 2011.

William G. "Bill" Evans, an award-winning Baltimore advertising executive who was the creative force behind the enduring "Charm City" advertising campaign of the early 1970s, died June 20 of cancer at the Hospice of Queen Anne's in Centreville. He was 83. "Bill certainly came out of the 'Mad Men' world. He was one of the first new breed of intellectual advertising writers. And he was definitely a character. There is no question about that. He was a very unique guy and writer," recalled ad executive Allan Charles, who began working with Mr. Evans in the early 1970s.

A winning anti-bullying slogan by eighth-grader Giulia Parsons brought officials and students together at Ridgely Middle Tuesday morning to officially kick off Baltimore County Public Schools' first Bullying Prevention Week. Giulia's slogan, "Loving is Louder," was selected from a group of submissions from county students, and represents her school's belief that bullying can be stopped by anyone — not just a bully or a victim. "Here at Ridgely, the principal and my guidance counselor focus on the bystander, so I feel like bystanders are very important," Giulua said.

The advertising executive behind the "Show Your Soft Side" anti-animal abuse campaign sued the city Tuesday in federal court, alleging that city officials are trying to take ownership of her idea, jeopardizing her plans to expand it to other cities. In the federal complaint, Sande Riesett alleged that city lawyers threatened to sue her over the ownership of the campaign's slogans. The complaint asks a federal judge to declare that Riesett is the sole owner of the campaign. The suit does not ask for monetary damages.

BOOSTERISM IS the opposite of cool. And there's the challenge. Any city that tries too hard to be its own cheering section may radiate desperation, not desirability. Like every aging, industrial city, Baltimore has its demographic work cut out for it, but attracting committed and creative people has to succeed on their terms, and more importantly, in their language. I don't like bumper stickers, and think slogans are hokey if not hopeless. But here's how I was won over. During an epic red light on Cold Spring Lane, I spotted a small oval on the bumper of the car ahead.

I have a lot of opinions about a lot of things we have written about in the paper recently. Here are some: Two life terms: It's about time a Harford County judge got it right when it comes to a sex offender. Too often, I'm reading or writing about someone who's abused a young girl or boy, or man or woman for that matter, and he gets off with what amounts to a slap on the wrist. I realize that often it's because the state accepts a plea to a lesser charge to keep the victim from having to testify and relive what I can only imagine is the worst experience of his or her life.
