Best Performance Art

City Paper

Of course the mayor likes performance art, she went to goddamn Oberlin. That’s perhaps the best explanation for some of the absurdist positions she’s taken this year, such as when she gave $3 mil that was set aside to help South Baltimore deal with the impact of the Horseshoe Casino back to Caesar’s to offset a cost for which the casino should have been responsible. It’s a powerful commentary on the way money corrupts politics and continually trickles up from the poor to the very rich. Surely, they must have taught a bit of Marx at goddamn Oberlin too.
