10 reasons DC is OH SO MUCH BETTER than Baltimore

[B' Spokes: The bit that relates to this blog:]

Public Transportation
As much as DC likes to complain about our metro, it is one of the most efficient, most convenient, and cleanest in the country. Baltimore's metro runs East to West only, and doesn't link up with either of the two other rail systems. Neither does its North-South-moving light rail. Even Trip Advisor says, "Your best bet is to rent a car."

[B' Spokes: And this is worth noting as well. (I believe in having a vibrant outdoor life (like lots of cyclists) would help Baltimore.)]

So, with just about the same populations (620K or so), in 2012 Baltimore tallied up 217 homicides. DC had 92. That's not very good.
