Bawlamer is a cesspool. A city with beautiful architecture peopled with panhandlers and drug-addicts once you get a block beyond the Inner Harbor. I couldn't believe I saw people apparently "dealing" right in front of City Hall the last time I was there. The city's last Republican Mayor (who also served as Governor) was an ultra-RINO (served from 1963-67). His children worked hard to elect KKT as Governor last year, disgraceful.
