Wasn't it just last year that firefighters and police officers had their hours reduced because of a lack of city funds ? Wasn't there talk of closing some of the city's summer places for children?

So how is there so much money available for the mayor's VoIP project, for IndyCar races that cost the city millions and for bailing out the Senator Theatre?

How much benefit do the citizens of Baltimore gain from any one of these?
