Alas, Baltimore

The politicians who spent this weekend attacking West Baltimore and the politicians who spent this weekend defending it have one huge thing in common:  None of them have ever done much to improve the conditions for the people who live there.  Instead, the citizens of West Baltimore have, for decades, been treated like pawns.  While the Republicans only care about them when there’s a partisan point to be made, the Democrats make promises that, because they’re the only game in town, they have no reason to actually keep.

And, as always, it’s the people who suffer.
