The corner of East Baltimore's Milton Avenue and Biddle Street has two liquor stores, a convenience store, a church, blowing trash, a police surveillance camera, kids peddling drugs and idle men worn from age and disability catching up with old friends and old times. Today, it is to have turkeys. Six of them, to be exact. And four hams. And plenty of other food set up on donated tables in front of one of those nondescript corner shops that sells malt liquor in 40-ounce to-go cans and seems to proliferate in impoverished neighborhoods, as common as boarded-up rowhouses and vacant lots.

Thomas Sjolander of Abingdon asks, "How come as soon as you cross the Bay Bridge onto Kent Island you see Southern Pines. ... Why not on the same latitude on the Western Shore?" Joe Sullivan, professor of plant ecology at College Park, says "southern" pines - loblolly, short- and long-leaf pines - prefer the Shore's sandy, sedimentary soils and temperatures moderated by the ocean. They grow more "coastal" the farther north you look, and can be found as far north as southern New Jersey.
