Oh Baltimore...

Without intending to I sort created a theme with my blog posts for this week. That theme? Baltimore kind of sucks. I got an email from a friend a few days ago the dovetails quite nicely, I'll share it with you:

Only in Baltimore...


Got home tonight and there's a drunk passed out on my neighbor's steps, and nobody knows him. So my neighbor calls 311 to have the police come get him.


Well, when the cop pulls up, there are three people walking down the alley with open 40's. And no paper bags. Literally right as the cop pulls up.


So we pointed the cop a couple of doors down to the drunk on the steps. The cop runs him off, and goes back to writing citations for the three drunks from the alley. He asks one for ID, and the guy reaches into his pocket an pulls out a piece of paper and hands it to the cop.


Yeah, it's his processing papers from being released from the Balt city detention center this morning.


Seriously, where else in America?




I don't really have anything to add. That pretty much speaks for itself. I will say though I think I'm going to end the negativity with this post, Baltimore has a bad enough reputation, they don't need my help. And it really isn't that bad, maybe next week I'll have Baltimore Is Awesome! week and highlight some good things. Probably not though.

Are you saying that if you did just get out of jail you wouldn't celebrate with a 40?

Baltimore is no not that bad. There really is alot of good here. Charmcitygirl used to blog about all the great things about Baltimore but she's since stopped blogging :(

I think that happens in Philly on a regular basis.

Yeah, sorry bud. Baltimore is the Newark of Maryland with only one caveat - there's a fun fish tank in the middle of it. Then again, if Baltimore didn't exist, Philly would likely take its place.

JW - I prefer celebrating my release from prison with an armed robbery. Just for ironic purposes.

Tee - There is definitely a lot of great stuff, and they are in fact slowly starting to out weigh the bad stuff. The scale is tipping fortunately.

Los - Definitely, usually when I visit.

PJ - I kind of love that you called it a fish tank. It is a pretty fucking awesome fish tank though.

Three things... 1) You know full well that the only correct way to celebrate getting out of jail is to take an overnight trip to AC, 2) I bet Charmcitygirl eventually ran out of "great" things and that's why she stopped blogging, and 3) along the same lines now that you aren't bashing B-more you haven't posted in 8 days.
