    I would love to attend the huge Whitman Coin Expo but since it is held in Baltimore I will pass.

    Guess I won't be attending any Orioles home games. Tis a shame a city degrades to that level.

    My brother lives in B'more. He was a merchant mariner who later owned two bars that were initially successful, but both of them went out of business because of the crime and lousy government policies in the city. He is now a tugboat captain in the harbor. When I visit him, the place seems like a war zone. I don't know why he stays. Paradoxically, he is still a radical lefty politically. Some people just don't connect the dots.

    Do you really have to ask? Many years of Democrat liberal policies, lack of support for the police department, and stoking of the victimhood.

    Why would I consider a trip to Baltimore? Last I heard that city was in Maryland.

    I lost a good wallet and a Zippo lighter in Vietnam but I'm not going back to look for those things. Learned my lesson very well years ago, thank you very much.

    No big deal, mainly gang bangers whacking each other just like in Detroit and Chicago and a dozen other places. 25 fewer gang bangers each month is a good outcome, and their efforts should be applauded, even encouraged. Hell, if this was taking place in another country, the US would be arming them to hurry things along
