Alex. Brown & Sons Inc. is Baltimore. The investment banking firm was instrumental in building this city and state. It financed early industries, it bankrolled the B&O Railroad. For that reason, confirmation that the firm is shopping for a new headquarters -- and does not rule out leaving downtown Baltimore -- is alarming.Whether Alex. Brown is serious or just driving a hard bargain, Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke must do everything to make sure the firm stays here. Otherwise, Baltimore's downtown will suffer a terrible psychological and economic loss.
