Ruben Dobbs is a musician whose endeavors have put him in interesting and deadly situations. This is one of them:
The corner of Eastern Avenue and Third Street in Annapolis, Md., is a barrier between surf, turf, work, home and play. A “T” intersection, a driver headed east has the choice between a marina on the right and a naval architecture firm and nautical instrument manufacturer on the left, just a few businesses in the busiest maritime district on the East Coast. A driver with bad brakes would blow through the intersection, careen through a pocket-park and slash into Back Creek, left to the mercy of Poseidon or any of the residents of the small homes within earshot.
