  • Events to remind us what it means to be human

    Every week, City Paper is divided between coverage of news and the arts. Baltimore itself is divided in much the same way-split between the tragic world of crime and corruption; and the lighter, enlivening worlds of film, music, art, theater, and books....
  • Robert Curran's Bankruptcy

  • Best Politician

    Love him or hate him, this has been a good year for Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley (D). Two O'Malley-backed laws got the nods of the majorities of Maryland voters in last fall's elections-one granting gay-marriage rights, the other offering in-state...
  • Disabilities Administration CFO says she was fired for blowing the whistle

    The former Chief Financial Officer of a $1 billion state agency has filed a lawsuit claiming she was fired for alerting her superiors-including Governor Martin O'Malley-to accounting irregularities and financial fraud. Carrie Phillip, a certified...
  • "Rain Tax"

    Just when it seemed like the Maryland Republican Party had no reason to even bother putting up a fight, the state came along and approved a "stormwater fee," tacked onto Maryland homeowners' property-tax bills to help the state pay for pollution-control...
  • Mandela biopic tackles South Africa's tangled history
