It’s not enough to celebrate the ideals that we’re built on, liberty and justice and equality for all.

America is a country that is now utterly divided when it comes to its society, its economy, its politics. There are definitely two Americas.

I have lived in one house in Baltimore for nearly forty-five years. It has changed in that time, as I have – but somehow it still remains the same.

The terms are slightly anachronistic now, but I think he was essentially right. -Laura Lippman

Excitement every day in the ballpark. -Ernie Harwell

Brown

The first thing we should be concerned about the BLM movement should be the issues that the Black Lives Matter movement is bringing forward. There’s no fundamental platform being brought by activists in Oakland, Baltimore, or New Jersey.

So my hope is that people stay focused on the urgency to create justice here at home. -Cory Booker

Like everyone, he remained disbelieving. -Helen Merrill

L. Mencken

Very interesting show. It’s “Hotel” with the E missing. Hot L Baltimore. It was about a rundown hotel which had become kind of a residential not quite welfare but almost welfare hotel with a very bizarre collection of people.The desk clerk was played by Jamie Cromwell.

After we did [All In The Family], that ended up being a real love fest all around. Me and Norman, Norman [Lear] and me, Rob Reiner, everybody liked everybody.

I came in and he said “ABC has given me a property that they just optioned to make into a TV series. It’s from a play called Hot L Baltimore, and I want you to be in it.” -Richard Masur
