DARRELL BENNETT is watching. The mayor of Baltimore, Martin O'Malley, arrives in the 4600 block of Park Heights Ave., and Bennett has a beautiful seat from his little front porch. The mayor is here to trumpet his re-election campaign. Bennett is out there to unburden himself of a few truths. In his campaign announcement, the mayor takes a few bows: for reducing violent crime, for confronting narcotics traffickers. But he's made a shaky choice of geography for an occasion of self-congratulation.

Paul Blinken steps outside his Park Heights Avenue shoe store, just one block south of Pimlico Race Course, and sees four decades of decay that only slot machines at the racetrack can now reverse, he believes. But literally across the track, to the north, is the stable, solidly middle-class neighborhood of Mount Washington, with its many stately homes on large lots.
