I am heartbroken about Baltimore. While the problems presented over the last couple of weeks are not unique to Baltimore, I know something of this place and not just because I watched The Wire. I spent eleven summers of my life at a camp in Maryland where the kids and counselors mostly came from DC and Baltimore suburbs. Because one of my best friends lived in Baltimore, I visited quite often once I got my driver's license.
So, it is with heavy heart that I post this Brian McFadden cartoon:
Again, it is not just Baltimore, just as The Wire was about the decline of American cities and not just one city.
