Two nights of zero attendance is a sign that Baltimore lacks imagination. Believe me; anyone with a bit of intelligence could turn this into a beneficial solution to a horrible event. My suggestion would be as a smart conservative not from this very liberal city to suggest turning on the light bulb. Because the only way to regain control is to raise both the individual and community spirit of giving. And this requires thinking time for wise solutions as well as brains.
These two stale dates for baseball with the dumb thought to play games without fans in the stadium shows the ignorance and stupid thinking of people in charge of liberal policies. Yeah, the city made a lot of mistakes. First off, they should have opened the stadium for fans and pressed for not only attendance but to raise donations to alleviate the ill feelings that a good two game event would help pacify such anger and help reestablish a sense of togetherness headed in the right direction. Instead of ticket sales going to the ball clubs, simply ask for donations of any amount which the clubs along with their players might be willing to match one to one. These funds could be used to expedite renewal of this ugly city section, as it is described, repairing and cleaning up the mess and giving hope to the residents who live there.
Local government needs to work to create harmony and such physical work projects would keep inactive hands busy with worthwhile projects. Time would help promote a sense of achievement and it would open the door for wider means to find remedies with good spirit and understanding by all residents. In the meantime, facts can be sought for the causes instead igniting hatreds. Whatever happened to the political liberal philosophy that man is rational? I see no semblance of this in the city of Baltimore.
And one more thought before closing. The shabby school systems today lack something of humility and critical thinking of student development. Bullying won’t do it. Whips won’t do it. Certainly throwing money at it has proved to be almost as worthless because it ends up in a program called public education.
Parents: encourage your children to study math, history, English, creative writing, music, and how to play chess. If nothing else, the addition of Bible study will turn on your kids creative juices and guidance to a meaningful and happy family life in love and marriage.
