Intelligent Conversation

Suntha says credentials of Fauci regarding COVID are unassailable

The veteran defensive end was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his three-sack day in Philadelphia.

Returning to Paradise during a plague with J.Y. of Styx

After almost a half century on the road, what happens when a band has too much time on its hands? For Styx guitarist and founder James Young, it was a "mirror, mirror on the wall" chat and a time to make history answering all of the hard questions Nestor ever had since he saw them on the Cornerstone tour in February 1980.

Perhaps, in the long run, the Ravens will benefit from the late letdown on both sides of the ball in an escape and narrow victory over the Eagles.

We still greatly miss all of our live visits and long-form chats with our Baltimore Positive guests at State Fare and Faidley’s from earlier in our Season One of intelligent conversations with community leaders but we’re forging ahead with some of the coolest conversations during a hot, pandemic summer here in the Charm City.

As Don Mohler always points out: it’s never a straight line with our guests or platform. Just two curious people seeking deeper knowledge and wisdom from wise people. We’re about to bring forward a wide variety of guests and topics as we navigate all of the aspects of life during a pandemic.

Dr. Mohan Suntha was named President and C.E.O. of University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) in November and his whole organization was crisis tested soon after with the COVID-19 epidemic coming to America. His leadership on the frontlines with Governor Larry Hogan is just a small portion of this lengthy chat about the virus and its impact on our world.

And, yes, we talked about the credentials of leadership and Dr. Anthony Fauci and a potential vaccine as well.

Because we haven’t been able to sit down and eat a proper crab cake at Faidley’s at Lexington Market or have some chicken and waffles at State Fare in Catonsville with our guests, we have been doing one longish episode rather than our customary three shorter blocks of conversation.

Given the current state of America in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and protests on our streets and throughout the world, we will be focusing on race and the future moving forward in many of our upcoming July episodes.

Clearly, we voted last month. And we hope you voted, too, and are ready to vote again in November!

We are all in this together and this is a time to educate, unite and keep each other safe. But we also have some extra time to read and learn and educate ourselves in many ways.

We will continue to produce high-quality, intelligent conversations with thought leaders as our citizens try to readjust to this pandemic during the summer at Baltimore Positive.

Please subscribe to Baltimore Positive and stay with us.

We’ll try to keep you cool.

What’s so great about The Constitution of the United States?

It was written back in 1789 so none of us were there but with many interpretations and "Originalists" now entering the discussion during the rushed Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett, we thought a civics course with our scholar Todd Schuler was in order.
