May 21 03 cover

City Paper’s 2003 Sizzlin’ Summer issue features an introduction, Emily Flake on Pimlico racetrack, Mark Fatla on minor-league baseball parks, Erin Sullivan on the “Painting Lady” of Canton, Tim Hill on the 12 O’Clock Boyz, Van Smith on the Eastern Shore’s Mason-Dixon markers, Blake de Pastino on Vera’s White Sands, the I-Team on Baltimore’s coldest draft beers, Waris Banks on butt-waxing, and Anna Ditkoff on Baltimore guidebooks.

The Mail has letters from Mayor Martin O’Malley, Christina Rathel, and Alan Rebar.

The columns are Joe MacLeod’s Mr. Wrong, on the Sizzlin’ Summer issue, and Mink Stole’s Think Mink, on cruel kids and parental disclosures.

Scocca & MacLeod’s proto-blog, Funny Paper, reads the comics so you don’t have to.

Emily Flake’s Lulu Eightball gets her head straight.

Better Live!-ing gives a host of tips to the Baltimore Sun’s faux alt-weekly, Live!
