Buz wonders: how much police resources are going to be drawn from the districts in order to support this event. How many specialized units will be forced to take their days off the week before or after, or both, in order to work this "cute" event?
And what about police, fire, EMS, and sanitation overtime? Oh, I had read that the race folks will pay the city the first $500K for services for this event. Um, I hope so. But, it's "free" money, isn't it? So, maybe city deployments should be all overtime?!
Buz hopes that Baltimore Racing Development comes through on its "bond" to pay us poor schmucks whose leaders fell for this charade.
