Readers discuss the lack of biscuits at McDonald's, Baltimore beer, and more.

"Can a strong mayor resist a children and youth investment fund?"

Earmarking tax funds for youth programing is a good idea. All the justifications the article attributes to the various pols make good sense. The stumbling block is where Council President wants to create yet another community board. Unelected boards with no accountability to the voters are the very model of bad government.

"Here's a 10-minute loop of anchorwoman Denise Koch saying 'The Ottobar'"

Somebody needs to EDM the hell out of this. Please and thank you.

"Forget Boh: Old Oriole Park Bohemian should be the beer of Baltimore"

Those first two words are music to my ears. #DrinkLocal #PabstIsNotLocal

Colt 45 should be made here!

"Murder Ink: 10 murders this week, 257 murders this year"

A hundred more than St. Louis but you have twice the population.

—"@dogtowntim," Oct. 7

I am not going to like this because every week a bit of me dies reading about citizens. I will thank you for continuing the Murder Ink Series, I hope for the day when there is nothing new to report in a week.

"All-day breakfast starts at McDonald's today—turns out Baltimore is a McMuffin kind of town"

Such a waste. Eff McDonald's seriously.

Thin the herd, poison the basics.

"Cop decked, video posted, commissioner reacts: 'We have to talk about it.'"

If this guy had committed a crime, he should of been arrest immediately. Not antagonized to the point where he become more belligerent.

"Some Things Last A Long Time: A 21st-century Beach House ticket-buying experience"

I too waited on line on my laptop in the queue, but I also tried getting to it on my phone. I was able to bypass the line on my Samsung S5 using Chrome. So next time use a mobile browser with limited Javascript support.

"Check out some spooky sounds from Terence Hannum's horror-movie music podcast 'Dead Air'"

@city_paper @TerenceHannum @Locrianofficial This is some awesomely creepy shit! Even scarier than the Orioles' starting rotation!

@jacobsknabb @city_paper @Locrianofficial scariest costume this year will be an @Orioles uniform

Corrections: A story about Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young's proposal (Mobtown Beat, Oct. 7) to reserve 3 percent of the city's general fund for increased recreation misstated the date of the hearing on that. The hearing has not yet been set. The piece also misstated the amount of money Young attempted to restore to recreation, fire houses, and other priorities in the mayor's 2012 budget. It was $17 million, not $48 million.

A caption with a story on the increasing number of women homebrewers (Feature, Oct. 7) misidentified a member of the Washington D.C. brewing group HOPS. Her name is Sara Bondioli, not Sara Bondiolliand.

A guide to Baltimore Beer Week events (Feature, Oct. 7) misidentified Steve Marsh as the brother of erstwhile CP General Manager Jen Marsh. There is no relation.

City Paper regrets the errors.
