Get A Clue (#1)

Today's post starts off a new series on this blog, "Get A Clue."

While investigating the big puzzle that is the recent history of The Senator Theatre and all the back room intrigue that's been going on in various downtown circles and among various parties angling to control the theatre, there are often tidbits of information that seem significant, but their full significance has yet to be revealed. Therefore, I will post them as a series of brief clues. Eventually, they may tell us something.

I've also noted that, due to the complexity of the issue and the ongoing misrepresentation of it in the press, most people in Baltimore don't have a clue about what's going on with The Senator. As this series grows, they will now have lots of clues.

Occasionally a few of these clues may not prove to be exactly right, so if you have a tip for me or can clarify something, please let me know.

In the intrepid spirit of investigation, here is today's clue:

Clue #1: About a week before Towson University withdrew their proposal from contention in the Senator RFP process, a source notes that Robert C. Embry, President of the Abell Foundation, met with Towson University President Robert L. Caret.

Does this have anything to do with the fact that Towson withdrew their proposal a few days later? Was this another example of Mr. Embry's role as the infamous Mr. X?
