Your report "45 murders in 31 days: Looking back at Baltimore's 
deadliest month" (Aug. 29) may be the most important news article 
since Freddie Gray's death.

It provides a perspective that no longer permits people who don't 
live in the poor neighborhoods most affected by the violence to 
discount the homicides there by simply chalking them up to "drug 
dealers killing drug dealers."

While there may be some of that, for each and every loss of life 
someone nevertheless grieves. Thanks for publishing this important story.
