Weekend Plans

Ravens at 4.

I’m steaming a bunch of seafood bringing in the new year with less red meat and getting rid of the hot dogs completely.

The mayor of Baltinore is in some deep shit, charged yesterday with 12 counts of felony theft, perjury, fraud and misconduct in office, becoming the city’s first sitting mayor to be criminally indicted.

The case stems in part from at least $15,348 in gifts Dixon allegedly received from her former boyfriend, prominent city developer Ronald H. Lipscomb, while she was City Council president. She also is accused of using as much as $3,400 in gift cards, some donated to her office for distribution to “needy families,” to purchase Best Buy electronics and other items for herself and her staff.

It’s not like Baltimore hasn’t always had problems with corruption. This is not a drop in the bucket. She has reduced the murder rate significantly and is doing a good job.

But what do I know.

The majority are calling for her resignation.
