Midweek News Roundup

(Photo swiped from MobtownGeorge.)

Well, it's been a busy week for Hampden.

First off, there's the biggies: CBS Sunday Morning w/John Waters and Baltimore Magazine (where Hampden was voted best shopping neighborhood and Hampden resident China Martens' The Future Generation won for best zine.) Atomic Books Blog sums up these items here.

Then, there's all this. . .
There's this: the story of a woman who's in love with her dog and who doesn't include Bella Roma in her definition of "people," but hey, I wish her well.

There's bad news about Finnerteas.

There's news about the spruced-up SPCA and your chance to see it from the comfort of wherever you access the Interwebs.

There were illegal liquor billboards, which you can still see here and here.

Finally, it's good to know that our neighborhood still has the power to disappoint. It's not as good as the movie! It's meaner!

What amazes me about the illegal billboard story is that it does not seem likely that Clear Channel will be held accountable for breaking the law, despite clear and incontrovertible evidence that they did so! Shouldn't they have to pay a fine or something, like everyday citizens who get caught breaking the law do?

The links to the Finnertea's story didn't work. Are they closing for good?

Messenger took the story down. Doesn't look like Finnerteas is closing; just that repairs will take months. She got hit pretty damn hard.

The Messenger site is really bad. I don't think the article links are static - so linking to them rarely works.
