  • All Wet?

    All Wet?
    After Baltimore City wrested its water and sewage system away from the private Baltimore Water Company in 1854, the municipal system expanded and made improvements, so much so that by 1914 the city crowed about its “finest in the world” new...
  • Mainstream Extremism

    Mainstream Extremism
    Anne Arundel County’s Fifth Councilmanic District is the whitest, most-educated, and richest of the county’s seven districts, and its voters lean heavily in favor of Republicans. If that pattern holds true in November’s general...

    Crime Coordinator Charged With Crimes
    A disbarred lawyer who has been working part time for a city agency on public safety matters has been charged in a theft scheme.  A criminal information filed on June 30 charges Sharon L. Guida with one count of theft between $10,000 and $100,000, and...
  • Conflicts of Interest

    Conflicts of Interest
    For the first time in decades, City Paper was not invited to the V.I.P. Artscape kickoff party. In fact, Bill Gilmore, the head of the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts, personally turned Jennifer Marsh, our general manager, away from the door at...
  • News Hole

    After the ridiculously busy news day that was last Friday--Port of Baltimore director resigns, House passes slots bill, and city asks to re-take-over its schools--thankfully, nothing much happened over the weekend, except, of course, the slowly...
  • Beyond the Beltway

    Missed It: As a journalist, I'm practically required to check out Jim Romenesko's media news blog daily, but I don't, so I missed C-Span CEO Brian Lamb's Feb. 27 interview with Lt. Gov. Michael Steele. In it, Steele, says he has "no use" for The Sun due...
  • Troubled Waters

    Now, I suspected that the story of the former port of Baltimore executive director James White's resignation last month would have legs--and that it would hurt the Ehrlich administration more than even the O'Rumors--but it's getting quite a bit more...
  • Catch-Up

    I've been super-busy the past few days, so let's catch up on some pretty decent and/or distressing stories from over the weekend and other stuff I've found, with maybe a short News Hole later. Charm City Massacre: The fact that 50 Cent's new album, The...
  • Rumorgate: Day 2

    What a weird thing this O'Malley marriage rumor debacle has turned out to be. While it's fascinating like a car wreck, I'm not sure it's actually means anything besides the obvious political implications. (If it does mean anything, find out what in this...
  • Battle Royale

    The battle between General Assembly Democrats and Ehrlich administration Republicans suddenly become more interesting and/or tedious yesterday, depending on your ability to stomach grandstanding, blame-casting, and general politicking. While Senate D's...
  • Generally Assembled

    Nobody's Happy: Generally Assembly 2005 has finally ended -- until a special session on slots or whatever is called -- so hurray for that. The major dailies, of course, have all the details, with The Sun leading with the stem-cell research funding bill...
  • Capitol Steps

    U.S. Rep. Ben Cardin's Senate announcement on Tuesday afternoon, which everyone knew was coming, was quickly overshadowed by the unexpected allegations, revealed in Thursday morning's Washington Post, that another Democratic candidate for Senate, Kweisi...
