    The corner.

    The crime-infested intersection of West Fayette and Monroe Streets is well-known--and cautiously avoided--by most of Baltimore. But this notorious corner's 24-hour open-air drug market provides the economic fuel for a dying neighborhood.

    David Simon, an award-winning author and crime reporter, and Edward Burns, a 20-year veteran of the urban drug war, tell the chilling story of this desolate crossroad.
    Wow, I was just thinking I'd been there [three second delay] followed by "oh crap, that was almost twenty years ago."

    Second hand find. Interesting read, especially the tactics sections on ground attack etc.

    My (descending) order was
    1. Shogun
    2. Taipan
    3. Whirlwind
    The same for me.
