Good news from Baltimore


(My new American Thinker post)

A month ago, I went to Maryland to see my ailing mother.  I learned from friends that Baltimore has a terrible police shortage.  They need 1100 but only have 500 officers.   It's happening because the political class is failing to let the police do their job.

Well. something has to give, because local businesses are threating to hold back money.  This is the story:   

More than three dozen businesses in Baltimore’s Fells Point are threatening to withhold tax and permit payments amid "chaos and lawlessness" that they say has been "going on for far too long," according to local reports.

The coalition of 37 businesses sent a letter Tuesday to officials, including the mayor, council president, police commissioner and state’s attorney, complaining about illegal alcohol and drug sales, public drinking, poor trash pickup and parking enforcement, and other problems, according to several local reports. 

They are calling for Baltimore officials to restore "basic and essential municipal services."

"[W]e are fed up and frustrated, and we now realize that nothing will change unless we demand action," the letter states, according to local affiliate FOX Baltimore. 

Can you believe that this is happening in a major U.S. city? 

It started back in 2014 when six policemen were charged in the death of Freddie Gray.  This incident introduced us to Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby.  She seemed more interested in appearing on TV than fixing crime in Baltimore.   In the end, the officers were acquitted.

Then in 2015 the city exploded, businesses burned, and the police were forced to watch.

Thankfully, the taxpayers are fed up.  They plan to hold their taxes back until the city does its job.  Maybe this is the start of a national movement that will finally bring city Democrats to their senses.

A word about June 14






We remember June 14:

1965:   Jim Maloney of the Cincinatti Reds pitched a great game but did not get a decision:  10 innings, no hits but left with a 0-0 score!  

1811:   Harriet Harriet Elisabeth Beecher Stowe was born in Connecticut.  According to her page, Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) wrote 30 books.    We remember her for one of those books:  “Uncle Tom’s Cabin“.

Harriet Harriet Elisabeth Beecher Stowe was born on June 14, 1811 in Connecticut.   Her father was a preacher and mother a devout Christian woman.   
According to her page, Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) wrote 30 books.    We remember her for one of those books:  “Uncle Tom’s Cabin“.   
The book changed how many Americans viewed slavery.  It demanded that the United States end slavery and sold thousands of copies all over the world.    
We remember a great lady today.

We remember Don Newcombe who was born in Madison, New Jersey on this day in 1926.  He died in 2019.

Newcombe broke with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1946 and won NL Rookie of the Year:  17-8, 19 complete games & 5 shutouts.

After military service in 1952-53, Don became one of the best pitchers of the 1950's, including winning 27-7, the NL MVP & Cy Young in 1956.

He retired in 1960 with 149 wins, 136 complete games and 26 shutouts.  

Newcombe was a big part of those legendary Dodgers teams that inspired "The boys of summer" by Roger Kahn.
