Shootings in Baltimore
Everyday at the moment my email pops up with another news notification that there has been another couple of shootings in Baltimore.
It’s a time of great sadness when this dominates the news of a city 😦
The movie-star Edward Norton is from Columbia, I found out today. That is very exciting for movie-buffs and shallow celeb-lovers like me. He graduated from Wilde Lake and is the grandson of none other than Jim Rouse, the clever chap who planned and built Columbia. Well I never did! Ed, next time you’re in town, let me know and we’ll hook up for a cuppa 🙂
Martin O’Malley, Governor of Maryland
I got told today something that made me squeal with a) untold delight and then b) sadness and despair….
Martin ‘Muscles’ O’Malley (= squeal of untold delight) was in River Hill, that is in my neck of the woods, not a mile from my house (= double squeal of untold delight!).
But ‘was’ = ‘last winter’ = squeal of sadness and despair upon acknowledging the fact that we had been so, so close to each other and yet I was unable to meet him.
I was shown pictures of this event. He had his clothes on = squeal of sadness and despair…..
