December 21

"Two brothers who ran an East Baltimore garage were gunned down execution-style yesterday three hours apart in different city neighborhoods, and police scrambled to protect their families as detectives searched for suspects in the attacks..." Ralson and Everton Holder were partners in a towing business.

A man was shot in the leg in the Western.

"I don’t know what to make of it," said top prosecutor Mrs. J of her 83k raise. The Sun takes a more cynical 'tude, opining that MOM wants to encourage someone to run against his venerable foe.

Ooh, a gang database.
Wonder if it'll be as effective as the domestic-violence database.

Headline of the day: "Investigators: Woman fakes attorney pass for inmate sex"

HoCo police arrested Ronnie Gordon Smoth Jr. for a couple of home invasions after checking pawn shop records.

AAC police are looking for Lamal Lamonte Wise, 17, wanted for killing Marvin Timothy Wilson, 20, of West Baltimore Nov. 15.

In AAC a cold-case rape was solved-- by accident.

Damn! Two brothers, executed in separate parts of the city at the same time. Thats some Baghdad or Border Mexico type-of-violence.

WJZ's spell check needs a "Beating".

i think you mean "Marvin Timothy Wilson, 20, of West Baltimore," not "in West Baltimore.

No, in West Baltimore, right on Mosher Street ...

The Cybrarian said...

Wow, look, Durham, JZ fixed the typo!
That's gotta be a first!

burgersub said...

but west baltimore is not in anne arundel county. the murder took place in brooklyn park. the victim lived on mosher street, he wasn't killed there.

The Cybrarian said...

ok, I gotcha. I skim, if you didn't figure.

no disrespect meant, it's just the geography nerd in me.

hey, if i started a blog that just catalogued/made fun of the geography mistakes that our major news outlets make on a regular basis, do you think anyone would read it?

The Cybrarian said...

I would, but that's just me.
Hey, somebody sent me a really good map of Baltimore neighborhoods once, was that you? I could use one if you have one...

burgersub said...

was it this one?

The Cybrarian said...

...I dont think so, the one I had had streets on it.
But thanks!

the last time i was in the visitor's center in the harbor they had one hanging up in there that was identical except bigger and had all the streets on it. that's probably the one you're talking about. it also said there that you could purchase one for yourself for like $50!! and you can't purchase it there, you have to go to some office on the 15th floor of some building downtown. what a deal!
