The Chron has another story today on the red light camera mess.  Some critics are claiming that The H-Town Mayor is making this whole deal political. 
Check out the story.

If someone wants to run against her by running on red lights – good luck!  I kind of find it refreshing that The Mayor is trying her best to accommodate the will of the voters.  What a novel concept!

During comments today at a meeting of the International Association of Firefighters, the 42nd president described the newest Republican presidential candidate as “a good-looking rascal.” However, Clinton dismissed the Texas governor’s policies as “crazy.”

“I got tickled by watching Gov. Perry announce for president,” Clinton said. “He’s a good-looking rascal. He says, you know, I’m going to Washington to make sure the federal government stays as far away from you as possible.”

Who was the first MLBer from B’More to win the AL MVP Award?

Sharp: No. I think the people have decided that question. Twice.

Hall of Fame great Brooks Robinson of course with 28 dingers and 118 RBIs and outstanding fielding of course won the AL MVP Award in 1964.

There is nothing I can say about last night at The Yard other than to say the sale of the team has been delayed for a few days and team can’t find a way to win.
