Baltimore

What I'm seeing on television now is truly dispiriting. The police seem completely overmatched and the people of the city are helpless before the mob. The mayor's behavior has been bizarre: An hour ago, I watched a fellow show Fox's Leland Vittert where he had been struck with bean bags (after throwing bottles at police). Vittert asked him if he intended to stay out and continue to protest. The fellow said that he intended to but "of course, if they imposed a curfew we'd have to respect that."
At that point I learned that the curfew isn't in effect yet.
Why?

Baltimore was much more important to the history of this nation than is generally appreciated. In addition to being the city that stopped the British advance up the coast in 1812, it is the place where, thanks to Lord Baltimore, religious freedom was first made the law of the land in North America, 366 years ago last Tuesday. 

...and now it burns.
