Over spring break I was lucky enough to take a vacation in Miami Beach with my 14-year-old daughter Jane, my 26-year-old son Hayes, and his girlfriend Maria. Hayes and Maria, who live in Boston, had many opportunities to appreciate the reason for Jane’s ongoing frustration with me as every day I forget half of what happened the day before. As Jane acidly reminds me who went home on American Idol, what we decided about shopping for a dress for the dance, and that she already told me all about the math test, all I can do is entreat her to bear with me as I bumble through the ever-deepening geriatric fog. Such is the fate of children born in one’s forties. Read More →

City Budget Information Pop-Up Night

catch of the day fish (2)Maybe it’s just because we’re a city on the smaller side, but Baltimoreans absolutely love discussing local politics. It always seems that every other person has read the latest city budget proposal, or has analyzed how this month’s news from Annapolis will affect things in the rest of the state. And of course, we’ve all got something to say about it, too. But that’s what makes a city dynamic, and an informed population is certainly better than an uniformed one, right? Well, this year, on the eve of Tax Day 2015, you can get the scoop on all the latest info for Baltimore taxpayers in one handy (and dare we say, entertaining evening).
