The victims of a mugging would like the media to stop talking about the mugging already and other news.

This photo was taken by Carol Ott at the Holy Rosary Cemetery in Dundalk. In other Baltimore news:

  • A crime spree has hit the city - six people have been shot over the last couple of days.
  • Some say a mugging in Roland Park, Baltimore's ritziest neighborhood, has gotten too much attention. "This is ridiculous, with all the other things going on the city," said one of the victims, who was mugged outside of a French restaurant. "I love that restaurant and I don’t want it to be damaged. It’s just some little old community volunteer and some little old principal, and we got robbed, and we’re doing fine."
  • A couple of area activists are holding a funeral "for the American dream."

    How a Slum Became a City

    Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl was developed on top of the swampy remains of Lake Texoco by dubious subdividers after World War II. Thanks to some of its earliest residents, “Neza” has become a thriving hub of culture and commerce with running water and paved roads just outside Mexico’s capital.
