Ten Years Ago in City Paper: July 11, 2001

The Big Music Issue essays are Anna Ditkoff on Ryan Shelkett, Brian Morton on local zydeco, eight local musicians on their favorite Baltimore bands, Vincent Williams on Sisqo, and Lee Gardner on Artscape's music. In Mobtown Beat, Molly Rath reports on funding cuts for a midwifery program and Terrie Snyder covers the litigious aftermath of a police helicopter crash. Tom Chalkley's Charmed Life tells the Thomas Viaduct story. The columns are: Joe MacLeod's Mr. Wrong, on rats; Mink Stole's Think Mink, on spousal detection and the dinner-date syndrome; Wiley Hall III's Urban Rhythms, on cat people versus dog people; and Tom Scocca's 8 Upper, on the Orioles' rebuilding. Scocca & MacLeod's proto-blog, Funny Paper, reads the comics so you don't have to. In Imprints, Ian Grey appreciates Chris Fujiwara's The Cinema of Nightfall: Jacques Tourneur; Mahinder Kingra finds Steve Monroe's first novel, '57, Chicago, an easy read; and Wendy Ward is frustrated by Anna Maxted's first two novels, Getting Over It and Running In Heels. Adele Marley's Television wishes TNT's "The Mists of Avalon" had better girl power. In Film: Rachel Deahl is annoyed by Baby Boy and bored by The Closet; Ian Grey isn't afraid of Peeping Tom; and Adele Marley extols A Man for All Seasons. Susan Fradkin's Belly Up enjoys Sydnee De Mar. (Editor's Note: This review is exactly a decade old, so take it with a shaker of salt.)
