Baltimore, our city of perpetual recovery, requires that kind of extra effort. You don't move here for the privacy or solitude, though you can find both. You don't move here if you want to be left, as the natives say, "A-lone." There's too much to do, too much going on, and way too many problems for the indolent and apathetic. You move here because you still believe problems can be solved, that a city can be great.
