It’s that time of year when everything feels bright, shiny and new. Except it doesn’t. Not here in Baltimore. Our foe, COVID-19, is in the throes of a hellish comeback; a funeral was just held for one of Baltimore’s finest; another city official was indicted on a charge of lying and betraying our civic trust; and there have been nearly as many murders as days so far in January. It’s hard to hang onto hope that 2022 will be better.
