  1. Today's Google Doodle honors George Peabody. A noted philanthropist who founded the Peabody Institute of Music and the Peabody Library in Baltimore!
  2. I believe it is opened 2 times a year for testing. It is done at night to avoid disrupting traffic.
  3. The entire span needs replacement. The drawbridge should be omitted. West of the bridge the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River is heavily silted . Link to Google satellite view: https://www.google.com/maps/@39.2595425,-76.6240645,1147m/data=!3m1!1e3 The new span could incorporate some of the features of the old one for historic purposes. It has lived it's life and served the public well. It now needs to be retired and replaced.
  4. A friend of mine who lives near there. Phoned me and told me they found 1 dead inside the shop and 3 more with gunshot wounds wandered into Bayview Hospital.
  5. Collecting surplus or outdated emergency vehicles is a hobby for some people. Please note the article stated the ambulance was not registered in Maryland. Here are a couple of examples. http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/--5-eZzlp1c0/UDbHe8qN4CI/AAAAAAAB_VA/TCeCWX8MSCQ/s900/a15.jpg http://www.firebuff.org/antique/HILLSIDEANTAMB.jpg
  6. I think the vast majority of what Trump is proposing. Has as much of a chance of being enacted as me going to the Moon! Congress still has final control of the nation's purse strings. With new elections looming. No congressperson is going to jeopardize their chance of being re-elected!
  7. He should not only be suspended. I think he needs a little jail time to cool off and meditate on his stupidity!
  8. http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/bs-sp-caleb-joseph-leadership-role-20180214-story.html Pete Schmuck wrote a very nice article about what Caleb Joseph's role with this year's Orioles will be like. After wallowing in the minors for many years and being the second string catcher. He will be the Oriole's primary catcher for this season. But this year in Spring Training and during the course of the regular. He will also be a teacher and counselor to the other catchers. When reading the article Caleb struck me as being a very humble person. Who is grateful for his chance to be in the big leagues. After he had spent so many years in the minors. He says that he is enthusiastic to assume the role of teacher and coach for the other catchers. If successful, and I believe he will be, I foresee an after MLB career as a coach and/or manager.
  9. Well, it looks like the mayor is going to have to go find ANOTHER new commish!!
  10. Baltimore County's Judicial system isn't a joke like Baltimore City's. The judges there don't play games. I hope that they do get tried as adults and get sent away for a long time. So long that when they are released they will be able to file for Social Security!!
  11. Today's Ripley's Believe It Or Not, highlights the August 22, 2007 game. When the Texas Rangers hammered the Oriole pitching for 30 runs! Which was the highest run count for any pro team in a single game for the previous 110 years! http://www.gocomics.com/ripleysbelieveitornot
  12. Unfortunately, no Matt. I'll understand if you delete the thread. But, this is now being reported by the Baltimore Sun. My original post was a copy and paste before the Sun newspaper put it on the internet.
  13. I'm starting a new thread. Because the other has become one of political bickering. The following from a railroad message board to which I belong. NTSB Board member Bella Dinh-Zarr gave a late night news conference. She gave a preliminary statement. “So here’s the factual information that we have right now. The investigator-in-charge has obtained a download of the event data recorder on the rear locomotive. Preliminary indications are that the train was travelling at 80 MPH in a 30 MPH track. The train was a 12 car train and it had a locomotive both in the front and the back. Amtrak estimates that 80 passengers were on the train, with three crew, and two service personnel in the cafe car. The crew went on duty at 05:00 and it departed at 06:00 this morning. There were two stops. The last stop was 18 miles prior to the accident.” My sincere condolences to the dead and a speedy recovery to the injured.
  14. Now they have to keep their foot on the Steelers' necks!
