Breaking the Poverty Cycle in Baltimore

(Image by Steve Breen)


Jonah Goldberg suggests that to break the cycle of poverty in Baltimore, it's necessary to fix the culture of poverty.

True, easier said than done.

But the Baltimoron Democrats have had half a decade to accomplish this.  (Correction 18 May 2015: I meant half-a-century, thanks to "Juvat" for spotting my error).

And what has been the net result of their misrule?

A toxic mix of crime, corruption, poverty and neglect that boiled over into rioting & looting over a perception--as yet to be proven in court--of lethal brutality by six police officers.

But Baltimore's State Attorney is being accused of incompetence, or ethical recklessness, or being over her head and catering to mob passions.

Meanwhile, Baltimore's poor will remain impoverished.

    I think you meant half a century.

    Other than that, spot on.

    1. Thanks for spotting the error! I added a correction to the post. That's the problem with blogging: Being one's own editor. I come across typos and mistakes I made years ago! Thanks again.
