I agree with you Gsol

The trashing of the city has already begun by that stooge Duncan and I think very unfairly so. But this is so typical of the attitude that the wealthy D.C. suburbs have toward Baltimore. What really gets me is that they always point to the failing school system in Baltimore City. Then they turn around and hog all of the educational dollars for their own school system and Baltimore's is critically underfunded year in and year out. I'm not a great fan of Bonnie Copeland myself but they have done a remarkable amount with the meager resources that have been made available during O'Malley's 2 terms and I know that education has always been a priority of his administration. But there's only so much that can be done with a school system that has been underfunded by Annapolis for decades now. If Duncan who's a Democrat trashes the city just think what Erhlich will say!

On another note, I also agree that residential developments like Ed Hale's should be welcome by the city. But I think that the architectual review board is more concerned with making sure that these new developments fit into the areas where they are going. The alternative would be the Houston model where there are no restrictions of any kind and developers can build what they want where they want or Atlanta for that matter. I read in this mornings Sun newspaper that there have already been 3 proposals made for the old GM factory in east Baltimore all of which involve complete demolition. I was wondering though, will the preservationist cry foul that yet another Baltimore icon is once again in danger of destruction! With the hostile community groups, the hysterical preservationist and the architectural review board, I find it's a wonder that anything even gets built in Baltimore City!
