Fear This

Your typical government-sponsored publication is rather bland, designed to foster the calming sensation that your tax dollars are working hard to keep you safe, to keep your loved ones healthy, and to ensure your safety and civil rights.

Some catch-up to do here … End of an Era: It’s news to me, but it sounds like the Bel Air Drive-In Theatre‘s closing (story by the Sun‘s Josh Mitchell) has been in the works for a while. The adjoining Big M burger-fries-milk shake restaurant closed last fall. Going to the Churchville complex–which also...

A Dispatch from the Third Floor’s old friend Er Uh Cliffie City Paper got about a dozen of these on Tuesday and Wednesday–e-mails from helpful citizens pointing out BIAS (the MSM’s, ours, everyone’s but the writers’) in the polls about and coverage of the Terri Schiavo case: “Dear Baltimore City Paper: It’s now been...

But it’s pretty obvious it backed off after citizen complaints and pressure from U.S. senators and such. Easton Star-Democrat story.

Free Money: The extension of Key Highway from its endpoint at the Domino Sugar plant to Nicholson Street and Tide Point is much needed. And kudos to the Board of Estimates for coming up with a deal to finance it. But I don’t see anything in there about Struever Bros. Eccles and Rouse, surely...

I’m itchin’ to get out of here, so just a few more clickables, and I’m gone: Tear It Down: Yes, tear down the JFX, please. Downtown freeways are bad news urban-planning-wise. Don’t think it’ll ever happen, but a discussion surely couldn’t hurt. But like someone in this kinda lame though thought-provoking Sun story says,...

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 to that long-ago editorial that said the...

I think. Unfortunately, I am not up on the long, complicated history of the state’s takeover of Baltimore City’s public schools, even though I’ve read dozens, if not hundreds, of stories about it over the years.

Rounding the Corner: Sounds like whoever was doing the whipping did their job and kept delegates from watering down the House slots bill (with amendments on minority ownership, political donations, etc.), which the full HoD is expected to vote on today (or maybe Monday). Also, delegates, please don’t get all metaphorical on the House...
