Orioles center fielder Adam Jones glides through the home clubhouse in a T-shirt and basketball shorts, razzing everyone he passes with a bellowing voice and an even louder cackle. On the other side of the room is right fielder Nick Markakis, sitting quietly at his locker, rarely looking up. Markakis' choice of nonbaseball duds is often tan and green camouflage. Earlier this season Markakis walked into Camden Yards in head-to-toe camo, looking as if he had just vacated a tree stand in the woods.

The temptation to talk about Allen Stone's look - the long, straggly blond hair, his trademark Seattle Supersonics jersey and those chunky reading glasses a great-grandmother might consider out of style - completely disappears once he opens his mouth. That's because a voice like Stone's warm tenor sounds like a product of a forgotten, pre-Auto-Tune era. Stone, who is currently opening for Jack's Mannequin but will perform his own headlining set at the 8x10 on Sunday, is one of the most promising and surprising soul singers in years.

While the roles of depression and addiction in Robin William's suicide were the focus of most news stories about his death, perhaps the headlines should have focused on his recent diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, highlighting the intricate relationships between neurological diseases and mental health conditions. The U.S. health care system is woefully inadequate at addressing the overlap between the body, mind and soul in these patients. The anatomical, physiological and neurochemical changes in the brain associated with neurological disorders - such as stroke, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease - can exacerbate or worsen previously existing mental health conditions including depression and anxiety.

Thanks for Susan Reimer 's commentary on the shootings at Perry Hall High School ("Failing Bobby," Aug. 30). This young man seemingly didn't have a "normal" home life. To read about other students throwing food at him or ridiculing him makes me hope that those that made fun of him are not only praying for his alleged victim but also for themselves to be better friends to everyone. Anyone who ever bullied Bobby had a hand in his shattered soul. D. Taylor, Baltimore

Outrage doesn't begin to describe my reaction to the recent revelations over Baltimore's failure to collect taxes that were due from commercial property owners ( "City says it can't rebill," July 25) Hats off to reporters Luke Broadwater and Scott Calvert for exposing the inequity and hypocrisy of city collection processes and the city regulations that only benefit a few at the expense of the many. On behalf of the tens of thousands of Baltimore City homeowners whose life-long residences have gone to tax sale over unpaid water bills, I ask where was the Bureau of Collection's fairness meter?

Growing up in Harlem in the late '80s and early '90s, Shemekia Copeland heard hip-hop up and down the block. Her friends were digging Kool Moe Dee and LL Cool J. But the latest sounds in urban music didn't really move the future blues belter. "I remember wanting to go inside and play my Koko Taylor records," says Copeland. "I feel like I was born in the wrong time." One listen to any of her four solid albums on Alligator Records, and you wonder whether the artist has lived here before.

Chicago. -- In San Francisco recently, ex-governor Jerry Brown was trying to explain why his opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement is different from Ross Perot's opposition to it. Mr. Perot thinks NAFTA will make Americans lose jobs. Mr. Brown thinks it will make America lose its soul.We need to put our own house in order, he argues. American jobs have already gone south of the border, not because of stated trade policies, but because we do not insist on equitable labor policies here.

What is it about Western leaders from Neville Chamberlain to George W. Bush who want to find good in men of bad character? Acting as if he were endowed by special insight bestowed upon no one else, President George W. Bush declared in 2001 that he had looked Vladimir Putin in the eye and "was able to get a sense of his soul. " According to the Daily Caller.com, in a 2010 interview with talk radio host Hugh Hewitt, Mr. Bush, who was promoting his book "Decision Points," was asked about his ability to see into the souls of men. The former president explained, "The reason why I said that is because I remembered him talking movingly about his mother and the cross that she gave him that she said she had blessed in Jerusalem.

Last year, after Sharon Jones' third round of chemotherapy to treat stage-two pancreatic cancer, the 58-year-old soul singer cried as she decided to cut off her remaining hair, which was “hanging onto strings in little braids.” Moments later, the frontwoman of the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based group Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings found humor and strength in her new hairstyle. She even seemed to like it. “When I looked in that mirror, I was like, 'Oh! My head is pretty round. I got a nice pretty round head.

Derrick "OOH" Jones, aka Yo Slick and member of the influential Baltimore rap group Brown F.I.S.H., died Sunday. He was 38. Al Shipley's obituary in City Paper , which first reported Jones' death (cause of death has not yet been released), is essential reading to understand Jones' impact on Baltimore. Jones was an excellent rapper and live performer, but his reach extended well beyond hip-hop fans. He was a teacher at Gilmor Elementary and the director of the Baltimore Youth Advocate Program.

I bring Maya Angelou along today because news of her death made millions of us think of her voice - we can all hear that voice - but mostly because I think she belongs here. I have a couple of small stories to share, and while they stand alone as heart-lifters and soul-refreshers, some Maya music might give them a little more resonance. She extracted great lessons and profound wisdom from small things - personal experiences, observations from daily life - and her words ended up on posters and greeting cards.

On a crisp spring morning, chef David Thomas stands in the kitchen of his Parkville cafe, Herb & Soul, prepping for a busy day of cooking. Plastic tubs overflow with fresh kale, while shelves hold spices that will impart flavor to the chef's Old Bay Fried Chicken, mac and cheese, and smoked chili-rubbed boneless short ribs with homemade sauce. At first blush, the menu might bring to mind soul food, although Thomas describes his farm-to-table, sustainable fare as Southern fusion.

Ask Dwele his favorite song from “Subject,” his 2003 debut album, and the soul singer will hem and haw a bit before narrowing the options to two. The tone-setting “Truth” makes the cut because of its “feel good” nature, he said, while “Without You” immediately transports him back to the late-night studio session that birthed it. “It was 3 or 4 in the morning in Philly,” Dwele, 36, said on the phone from his hometown of...
