The Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore (GLCCB) has sold its Mount Vernon headquarters, the organization announced Wednesday. The decision to sell the building was made "to address ongoing community concerns with the inadequacy of the GLCCB's present space," according to a statement from the group's board of directors. The building's sale comes two months after the GLCCB opened a new public resources center on the ground floor of its building, and it appears future expansion and changes may be on the way. Executive director Matthew Thorn said in a statement that the 36-year-old organization is interested in a new space that can offer "a venue for interested community organizations to work in concert in a shared space.

Dozens of big U.S. corporations are considering leaving the United States in order to reduce their tax bills. But they'll be leaving the country only on paper. They'll still do as much business in the U.S. as they were doing before. The only difference is they'll no longer be "American" and won't have to pay nearly as much in taxes to the U.S. government. OK. But if they're no longer American citizens, they should no longer be able to spend a penny influencing American politics.

Baltimore city teachers will close out the school year with a rally at the district's central headquarters Monday, where they will protest last-minute changes to the district's teacher evaluation system that stands to hinder teachers' ability to move up in pay. The issue stems from changes to a scoring system that rates teachers "highly effective,"  "effective," "developing" or "ineffective. " The district said it recently raised the scores -- for example, the score for a "highly effective" under the originally published system was an 80, and is now an 86 -- because student test scores wouldn't be used in evaluating teachers this year.

In fact, the east and west wings of the headquarters opened in 1913. They were of modern construction and had huge, open cement floors which were then partitioned off for classrooms, shops labs, offices, etc. This is exactly the style used today.
