Homicides down in Baltimore

At least for the first three months of 2008. Hopefully it will last. Here's the Sun's story by John Fritze and Sara Neufeld.

There's a nice Sun news graphic in the story.
It's rarely mentioned that what looks like a steady decline in homicides in the 1990s correlates pretty well with the decline in the city's population. So while the numbers dropped, the rate didn't.
