All that is given to us

Problems in Baltimore run much deeper than Mr. Gray’s death and the conduct of the police, according to the New York Times:

Near the burned-out CVS, Robert Wilson, a college student who went to high school in Baltimore, said: “With the riots, we’re not trying to act like animals or thugs. We’re just angry at the surroundings, like this is all that is given to us, and we’re tired of this, like nobody wants to wake up and see broken-down buildings. They take away the community centers, they take away our fathers, and now we have traffic lights that don’t work, we have houses that are crumbling, falling down.”

I can’t imagine why the people currently acting like animals or thugs haven’t been given better surroundings. What was the House Fairy thinking?

    Remember James LaFond, the blogger, author, and boxer? You quoted his Why Charity is Evil thing once.

    Turns out he lives in Baltimore proper and is now posting plenty about the current going-ons, from the middle of it all!

    Reminds me of Fred Reed, the writing style. And he already has a backlog of 30 stories…
