Sidney Knighton could have been one of the 88 - the homeless men and women who died this year in Baltimore. It could have been any of us, in a society where so many count on their next paycheck for survival. That was the message last night at the annual Homeless Persons' Memorial Day vigil at War Memorial Plaza, where a crowd of nearly 100 held hands, touched shoulders and told one another, "It could have been me." No job. No money. And not a clean pair of pants to fit his 6-foot-4-inch frame, Knighton said, he sleeps on the stairs of a downtown building and keeps clean using a McDonald's restroom, where he ate his most recent meal of two cheeseburgers and fries on Wednesday afternoon.

The scars on Brian Knighton's right arm and forehead are a permanent reminder of the "hard-core" professional wrestling matches he has participated in during the past 17 years. Beneath the surface, the Fells Point native carries emotional scars that cut deeper than any flesh wounds, the result of a self-destructive lifestyle that has claimed the lives of several peers. Having spent half his life spilling his blood for little money in bingo halls and high school gymnasiums on the independent wrestling circuit under the name Axl Rotten, Knighton knows all too well about the unforgiving, cutthroat nature of the industry.

The Annapolis city council unanimously approved a resolution last night limiting the number of monthly permit parking spaces in the new Knighton garage to no more than 75 of its 220 spaces. Before the vote was taken, members discussed parking pricing practices in city-owned garages in addition to the ratio of hourly and monthly spaces. The garage is expected to open later this month. The Knighton garage parking space limit was one of several recommendations by an 11-member ad hoc committee that is trying to solve Annapolis' perennial parking problems.

During the public comment period at Annapolis city council meetings, most people bring concerns and questions to the mayor and aldermen. Cecil C. Knighton sang a song instead. "Don't forsake me, oh my darling," Knighton serenaded the council Monday night. The musical interlude might have earned a few smiles and giggles, but it was laced with frustration and concern over the city's handling of a proposed parking garage in the 100 block of West St. Knighton sold some of the land to the city and gave it the rest it needs for a much-needed parking structure.
