It's hard to remember a hurricane season when the public has been made more acutely aware of the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale - normally an obscure measure of a tropical cyclone's destructive power. When Hurricane Charley crept up on southwest Florida on Aug. 12, it had top winds of 85 mph. Forecasters labeled it a relatively weak Category 1 storm. In the Saffir-Simpson's shorthand, that warned, in part, of "some damage to poorly constructed signs ... some coastal road flooding and minor pier damage."

My first inkling that Mayor Sheila Dixon had a different crime strategy than her immediate predecessor came when I saw the foot patrolmen on Garrison Avenue, between Beaufort and Elmer avenues. Before Dixon addressed reporters at a news conference Monday, I talked briefly with Baltimore Police Commissioner Leonard D. Hamm about foot patrolmen, at long last, coming to that part of Garrison Avenue. "The neighborhood knucklehead contingent seems to be absent," I told Hamm.
