    Baltimore is a city with great public life. We're also a city that's known for having great art. So it's downright confusing that the majority of our public art is underwhelming, predictable, or just plain bad. Because the uncertain fate of the Red Line...

    2015 Resolutions for Baltimore: Fred Scharmen
    Boston, at about the same size and population of Baltimore, has 23 officially designated neighborhoods. By any count, official or not, Baltimore has a few hundred. So much of our identity and loyalty is tied to our tiny neighborhoods, and our tight travel...
