Felicia "Snoop" Pearson has spent much of the past two decades drawn to the gritty glamour of life on the streets, and nearly as much time and energy struggling to break free. Critics will see the arrest of the 30-year-old Baltimore actress on Thursday on drug charges as evidence that she's a career criminal — an image that only was heightened by her portrayal of a cold-blooded assassin on HBO's "The Wire. " But Pearson's friends, and there are many, are profoundly saddened by her latest run-in with police.

There was Wendell Pierce last Sunday night, sitting at a bar, pounding down drink after drink and getting kind of emotional as he talked about how messed up things had gotten in his life. Shades of Bunk Moreland, of “The Wire,” to be sure. Only instead of Dominic West as Jimmy McNulty matching him drink for drink, it was Liev Schreiber as Ray Donovan sitting next to him. Still, the character, Ronald Keith, a parole officer in Showtime's “Ray Donovan” series, was played just as winningly by Pierce.

While describing the potentially devastating effects of climate change during a recent segment of "The Colbert Report," host Stephen Colbert warned that if climate change continues unabated, much of the planet will turn into an uninhabitable wasteland, just like — wait for it — Baltimore. With abandoned row homes featured in the inset, the serious implication of Mr. Colbert's jest was clear: Baltimore, the epitome of urban decay, is unlivable and unsalvageable. While the segment failed to make me laugh, it did make me think.

Devin Mack was in a figurative drawing class at Ithaca College more than a decade ago when his professor handed him a roll of wire and said, "Here, make a figurative drawing out of this. " Mack, who was studying cinema and photography at the school, made his first sculpture and took the first step into a career. Today he continues to make wire sculpture "large and small" out of everything from coat hangers to precious metal. Indeed, probably one of his best known sculptures is a 12-foot-tall honeybee outside of Baltimore Honey, a community-supported apiary in Woodberry.
