Urban blight in Baltimore is slowly oozing into more neighborhoods.
Baltimore City Public Schools has made positive strides but have a long road to go in terms of improvement. Gang violence is on the uptick, and some neighborhoods are dying a slow urban death.
Is it me or does it seem like Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake goes on a promotional bandstand this time each year for a needless open-wheel IndyCar race through the downtown streets? With a smattering of arrogance, the mayor is very intent on making this race work. And yet the city is on life-alert?
If you want to talk about misplaced priorities, you can always start with the person who makes these inane choices for our city.
