Who says Martin O'Malley, who's been in Asia burnishing his foreign-policy credentials and all around the U.S. as head of the Democratic Governors Association, has lost interest in all that needs doing here in Maryland?

The governor will be hard at work in Baltimore June 18, leading his Celtic rock band in a performance for the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

O'Malley's March will play for the group at Fort McHenry, during what is billed as a "Star Spangled Night." Plans for the gig were first reported by The Washington Post, darn it all.

"On this special night you will dine on the hallowed grounds of this National Monument and Historic Shrine by rare and special arrangement," says the agenda for the conference. "Enjoy a traditional Maryland Crab Feast and celebrate our Nation’s Anthem with Maryland’s best bounty, along with special performers and a 'bursting in air' fireworks display.
