Once again this week’s column is the result of a conversation.  Last Sunday while talking to Jimmy Lane, a long time friend and lifetime resident of North Side, he was kind of down. I asked him was there a problem and he answered by reflecting on the ongoing problems on his beloved North Side. My instant response was it’s not just the North Side, what about all the predominately Black wards? I then added the situation is troubling across the nation, Baltimore had 43 homicides during the month of July, but then I caught myself and said, “It is mandatory that the problems are addressed.”
