Back in October, a military surveillance blimp escaped from Aberdeen Proving Ground and drifted to Pennsylvania, leaving a trail of power outages in its wake. Congress last made a big cut in the wayward blimp’s funding. We get an update from Ian Duncan of the Baltimore Sun.
Plus, we welcome City Councilman Nick Mosby to Midday as part of our continuing conversations with Baltimore’s candidates for mayor. Call us with your questions as we talk reducing violent crime - Baltimore ended last year with a record murder rate. We’ll also discuss ex-offenders’ challenges in finding employment - Mosby introduced the “Ban the Box” legislation that blocks employers from asking job applicants about their criminal history until an interview.
