Um. Well. I guess this would work.

Developers including Black Entertainment Television mogul Robert Johnson rolled out a proposal for a major hotel next to the Baltimore Convention Center. Johnson and the Quadrangle Development Corporation of Washington want to build a Hilton hotel on a four-acre parking lot west of the convention center and north of Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Developers say the development will cost about $250 million. Development partner Catholic Relief Services say they'll move their world headquarters to a 200-thousand square foot building to be built next to the hotel.

And yes, CRS needs a headquarters just like any other organization, and headquarters cost money. But the juxtaposition just struck me as odd. But...maybe it's a good thing. All those conventioneers streaming by the CRS headquarters. It would be nice if they could take advantage of it and raise some awareness. Maybe they will...
