cut backs August 28, 2012

Wonderful. After just hearing that Baltimore wants or needs to cut back on the fire department, the taxpaying citizens of this city discover the organizers of the Baltimore Grand Prix owe $12 million to the city, state and others ("Papers say Grand Prix debts over $12 million, Nov. 8,2011)?

Unbelievable — or maybe it is believable.

Already happening September 02, 2011

Take a look at today's Sun story about the deplorable mess the Grand Prix is creating -- virtually shutting off businesses, offices, residents, pedestrians and travel throughout the city.

The event is even being given bad reviews by some of the participating race drivers, who complain they can't try out the unfinished course and question the validity of the site.

Give it a chance September 01, 2011

I agree with RussSharpe. Folk in Baltimore need to be more open-minded to oppurtunities/events such as this one that has the potential of raising this City's reputation to the next level!

Just think - years ago events like the Baltimore Marathon/Running Fesitval were welcomed with skepticism ... and, yes, it is inconvenient for similiar (albeit one day) road closures. But look - that event has attracted national and international attention! This is one small example. Please give the Baltimore Grand Prix the same chance. If you don't, Baltimore will always be known as a "Wire"-town.
