As luck would have it, and completely unplanned -- this is coming up in the queue the day before I head out to Baltimore for the SACRPH conference. Any and all Baltimoreans or conference attendees who want to talk maps or Pruitt-Igoe are welcome to come say hello. I'll probably be wearing a light blue shirt and a gray sportcoat.
