There's lot of talk in Baltimore about the war on drugs. But from the look of things, the trash problem is also worth fighting. In an attempt to clean up the city, Mayor Martin O'Malley has designated March 24 and 25 "Super Spring Sweep Thing." It's expected to be the city's largest cleanup effort. In the program, each participating neighborhood association identifies five sites that need cleaning, then organizes volunteers to help clear trash in those areas. City officials provide brooms, shovels, rakes, gloves, trash bags and trucks to haul away the garbage.

With a Christmas pardon from the governor, Kirk Noble Bloodsworth regained his status as an innocent man -- something he lost almost 9 years ago when he was convicted in the rape and slaying of a 9-year-old Rosedale girl.The pardon from Gov. William Donald Schaefer clears Mr. Bloodsworth's name. It also opens the door for a financial settlement from the state for wrongly imprisoning him.But it also raises troubling questions.How was Mr. Bloodsworth convicted not once, but twice? Why do prosecutors still refuse to say they had the wrong man, even after a sophisticated DNA test showed he could not have been the man who raped Dawn Venice Hamilton on a summer day in 1984?
