Oh Nos!

Rabid kitten discovered in North Baltimore
A stray kitten that wandered into a North Baltimore backyard this month had rabies, the first city cat or dog found to have the disease in more than 20 years, officials said yesterday.

Two people who tried to help the kitten are receiving medical treatment. Others who are concerned that they or their pets may have had contact with the kitten are asked to call the Bureau of Animal Control.

The whole story is here.

EVERY ANY GOOD NEWS IN BALTIMORE?

I know. I feel like that, too.

The crabs are still delicious. That's good news. Murders are way down this year. That's great news!

But the bad news in Baltimore can seem so uniquely bad. So third world. At least there's no dengue fever in Baltimore. At least not yet.
