It was in Baltimore. How could you notice the smell over the general stink of the City? Lots of mayors and local politicians in jail. Lots of crime. Lots of corruption.
That is the real “stink” of Baltimore, not one guy with bowel problems.
Actually the SS complex is literally west of the edge of real Baltimore. Our family friend lives down the street from it, and not much further is my aunt. Although I must say Woodlawn generally is not a real good place; takes the color of the worst of Baltimore.
