    The Mail: War Protester
    As I sit here in my cell at the Chesapeake Detention Facility in Baltimore, reading the City Paper articles about protestors who are upset that white police officers are killing black men (“This is What Democracy Looks Like,” Feature, Nov. 10)...

    June Wing
    Just in front of Catt Hall, on the University of Iowa campus, lies a patio dubbed the “Plaza of Heroines.” Each brick in that plaza is engraved with the name of a great woman, and in section F, row 8, there is June Wing’s brick. Long...
  • Bishop L. Robinson

    Bishop L. Robinson
    It’s not possible to say how Maryland would be different if Bishop L. Robinson had run for mayor in 1999. Would he have been elected instead of Martin O’Malley, the ambitious white pseudo-wonk who benefited from a split vote inspired by a...

    Conflicts of Interest: Trees have nothing to teach me
    When asked why he never left the city, Socrates responded, “Landscapes and trees have nothing to teach me, only people do.” Of course the naturalists and environmentalists and everyone else will disagree with that—of course there is...
  • A Progress Report on our 2014 Resolutions

    A Progress Report on our 2014 Resolutions
    1. Get the murder rate under 200 Well, so much for getting the murder count below 200. Baltimore saw 211 homicides in 2014, a dozen more than our arbitrary resolution of 199, and it’s still horrifying to say that’s progress. Yeah, we had...

    Wandering Eye: More reason to doubt HUD's homeless figures, the GOP's possible violation of election laws, and more
    A brand-new report by the National Center on Family Homelessness, "America's Youngest Outcasts: A Report Card on Child Homelessness," puts the number of homeless youth in America at almost 2.5 million, or one in every 30 children—the highest ever....
  • The Mail

    The Mail
    Monumental Memories This is my first letter to City Paper, which I have enjoyed reading over the years. Your selection of “Best Overlooked Monument: On the Trail Statue” (“Best of Baltimore,” Sept. 17) in Clifton Park woke up a...

    Wandering Eye: Heather Mizeur slams the campaign cycle, an East Baltimore torture house, and the football mind of F. Scott Fitzgerald
    The governor's race has been pretty disappointing to follow, with "false statements and distortions" coming from both Lieut. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Republican candidate Larry Hogan. And we're not the only ones who feel frustrated: Today, The Sun...
  • Ballot Questions

    Ballot Questions
    Along with the usual (and unusual) candidates, voters will be asked to decide how much money to lend several venerable institutions, with taxpayers as the co-signers. And there are several questions of policy wrapped up as charter amendments. First, the...
