Walk through a graffiti-tagged corridor, under a light rail bridge, past the cars hurtling down the Jones Falls Expressway and you've entered what some believe could become a wonderland. A group called Section 1 envisions a skate park built under a labyrinth of highway support columns. They see concrete walls as canvases for street artists. A weedy lot, the setting for food truck rallies and art fairs. And an overgrown field near CSX tracks could hold a concert stage with space for an audience of thousands.

Here's a mind-boggling train of Alice in Wonderland logic: 1. Lobbying is generally defined as trying to influence legislation. 2.

In February, Mr. Nevins coordinated "courtesy-call" meetings in which he introduced Constellation and FPL executives to General Assembly leaders.

I feel as if I am in Alice in Wonderland every morning when I look at the news. If Mitt Romney had been elected president and we were in this situation, he would have gathered the House and Senate leaders and a few smart staffers at the White House, provided a blackboard and started throwing around ideas, options and alternatives. And he wouldn't have let anyone leave until a game plan was agreed on. All it takes is a real leader and hard work - two things that are in short supply in the current administration.

On Wednesday, President Barack Obama fired the head of the Internal Revenue Service, the first sacrificial lamb brought down after the alleged "targeting" of conservative political groups by the IRS. Mr. Obama declared, "Americans are right to be angry about it. " Call me out of step, but I am angrier that the president is joining the rush to judgment. All that is known for sure is that some IRS functionaries took a shorthand route to identify partisan political groups that might be pretending not to be political so that they could get the tax exempt status available to social welfare organizations.
