Two years after someone fired 18 bullets into his body, we finally know the reason Gregory McFadden died such a brutal death at the age of 27 in West Baltimore. He turned his back on a guy. It was disrespect, a malady that inflames the male ego and makes young men do terrible things. Disrespect has been around for centuries, of course, but its consequences have been particularly lethal in the age of the high-powered handgun. Killing someone because he disrespected you is a phenomenon that no amount of police power or community vigilance can seem to stop.

Baltimore is your unpredictable uncle in a bathrobe - sweet one minute, grouchy the next; as kind as an old friar today, as menacing as a hit man tomorrow. This town will baffle you. It is sane and insane, charming and ugly, cosmopolitan and puny, brilliant and middling, future thinking and stuck in its ways. Maybe every city is like this, particularly those with lingering violent crime. Every city with lingering violent crime probably has an old-school bakery or a revered deli where you can still get amazing smoked herring.

The word, derived from a children's book, refers to the "fifth dimensional corridor for traveling to a destination one could never otherwise reach."But judging by the company's first exposure last week at Harlem Park Middle School, Tesseract has yet to enter the first and second dimensions.A group of about 100 parents expressed anger -- not just confusion -- over the plan to turn their school over to Educational Alternatives Inc. for five years.
