As a Jewish, former Baltimorean, I didn't read HennyPenny's comment as saying Baltimore as a city was primarily Jewish. Come on, I think we all know that no major city in the US is primarily Jewish. Who would claim that?
When she said "In Baltimore (nearby my old home) it was primarily Jewish" I just thought, "Ah, you must have lived near Reisterstown Rd. Which does indeed have a large Jewish community. Man, I miss that deli - what was it called again? - with its potato knishes..." That's all.
Merpk - Defensive? no. Tired of being misrepresented, misquoted and having it implied I mean something that clearly I do not? yes.
