This week's issue of the City Paper offers up our highly anticipated top ten lists in news, art, books, film, video, food, and music (which, in addition to top ten local and national album releases, offers the top ten lists of our genre box columnists in heavy music, avant garde, hip hop, dance, Jazz, Baltimore club, indie-rock, and folk).

Edward Ericson Jr profiles one of the last workers at the Sparrows Point steel mill as the final deadline to bid on the mill, in City Folk. In Mobtown Beat Ericson continues to follow the saga of local blogger-turned-news-item Baltimore Spectator after a police standoff, and reports on a new round of tax credits awarded to out-of-town developers. Van Smith investigates the conviction of Salvatore Petti, previously involved in various Little Italy bocce ball disputes, for misappropriating funds for the Social Security Administration employees association for personal trips to Atlantic City.

In the Arts, Baynard Woods sees green with Jack W. Scheider at sophiajacob and falls in love with Acme Corporations Office Ladies at St. Marks Lutheran Church. Andrew Zaleski looks at the visual culture of the Civil Rights movement in a UMBC exhibit, Al Shipley goes to the World Famous Lexington Market with rapper Von Vargas, and Joe Tropea interviews Eugene Jarecki, the director of drug war documentary The House I Live in.

In Eats and Drinks, Michelle Gienow reviews Pho Thanh Cong in Parkville and Henry Hong's DIY Kitchen offers protips for holiday cooking.

In our columns, Dave Cluster's Homelesscide returns with a blistering look at the do-gooders who populate soup kitchens around the holidays, and Jim Meyer's Spitballin' says a fond farewell to Cam Cameron.

As always, Baltimore Weekly helps you plan Your Week, with the city's best calendar listings and Al Shipley's Short List of not-to-miss music. And don't miss this week's Baltimore City Power Rankings and Murder Ink columns.
