How can the city afford new phones, grand prix and Senator bailout?

October 04, 2012

Wasn't it just last year that firefighters and police officers had their hours reduced because of a lack of city funds ? Wasn't there talk of closing some of the city's summer places for children?

How much benefit do the citizens of Baltimore gain from any one of these?
