Baltimore – Here’s Hoping for More to Come

When delivering surprising news about a place known for its bad news, it’s always good to lead with, “First, nobody died.”

Well, this surprising news is the case with Baltimore this past weekend. The historic city, plagued by gang-related homicides in recent years, known for anything but positive news regarding street violence, has just gone 72 hours without a reported murder. A dubious distinction, sure, but one that brings with it the hope of more to come.
