Story | Jun 4, 2014 | 8:14 PMThe two-pack of features is Dan Kennedy, on alt-press infighting over flawed journalism that wins awards, and Eileen Murphy, on writer Sophie Kerr and the Washington College literary prize that bears her name. In the news, the Nose pokes around a mysterious sign atop the Congress Hotel, a controversy over firehouse closings , and an outbreak of impromptu fun at Arena Players; Molly Rath reports on a lawsuit against a sub-prime mortgage lender; and D.C. Culbertson checks out dance lessons for adults at Bryn Mawr School. Charmed Life is Tom Chalkley on Lillie Carroll Jackson, matriarch of the civil-rights movement. The columns are: Sandy Asirvatham's Underwhelmed, giving a history lesson on policing; Wiley Hall III's Urban Rhythms, giving an anti-gun rant; Joab Jackson's Cyberpunk, giving the skinny on the federal government's anti-trust case against Microsoft; and Tom Scocca's 8 Upper, giving a post mortem on an Orioles-Red Sox game. In Books, Jill Sebra profiles online publisher Toby Press and reviews two of its new fiction releases: Anna Enquist's The Secret and Joshua Barken's Before Hiroshima: The Confession of Murayama Kazuo. Art is Mike Giuliano on Connie Imboden's book of photography, Beauty of Darkness; a Grace Hartigan show at C. Grimaldis Gallery; and a photography exhibit at the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. In Zine Pool, John Sewell explains Flake, which is devoted to breakfast-cereal culture. Stage is Anna Ditkoff on Fells Point Corner Theatre's production of David Ives' Mere Mortals, a series of six one-act plays. In Music, Feeback is Lee Gardner going to Washington's 9:30 Club to see Wire and Tone and to the Vault in downtown Baltimore for a Glenmont Popes/Drive-By Truckers/Pourbillies/Twin Six show, and Geoffrey Himes checking out Katie Jackson twice: at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and at the House of God Church in East Baltimore. Daniel Schlosberg, meanwhile, profiles Baltimore ex-pat violinist Hilary Hahn. In Film: Small Time Crooks makes Ian Grey laugh, while Battlefield Earth inspires scoffing giggles, Wintersleepers gets a happily raised eyebrow, and Freaks earns a spirited defense against wrongheaded apologists; Lee Gardner labels Mifune "counterrevolutionary"; Jack Purdy marks the death of Douglas Fairbanks Jr. with a reminder that Gunga Din was pretty good; and Luisa F. Ribeiro also gives Fairbanks Jr. his due by resurrecting the "always watchable" Morning Glory, while calling Up at the Villa "vacuous" and "boring" and finding Center Stage "calculated" and hackneyed. In Belly Up, Susan Fradkin revels in the splendors of Karabelas Cuisine. (Editor's note: Please remember that this restaurant review is exactly a decade old, so take any information within with a shaker of salt.)
