On how Baltimore feels about his work: "I think if you go down to the grunts, the people who are on the streets, be they cops, school teachers or reporters covering a beat, they don't have much problem with me. It's usually people who have a vested interest in saying things are fine. It's usually upper management. There's probably a police commissioner here, a mayor there, an executive editor of newspaper -- they probably wish I'd shut up and go away. But I'm not writing for them; that's not my target audience."
