So long Edwin Morrow, also known as "Backpack Ed", Another of the Ellicott City Watchmen will be missed.

On Feb.4th, Mr. Morrow decided to relax on the train tracks in Ellicott City,Md. Un beknownst to him, at that hour, the local train usually passes thru E.C...
Not hearing the train because he had earphones on thus listening to his tunes and not the horn of the train- Mr.Morrow was run over by the unstoppable train.

Sadly, unlike others who have died on the tracks,Mr.Morrow was a local fixture of historical Ellicott City, especially on Main Street, within the confines of the local coffee houses,bars and restaurants.Well liked by the locals especially those who always enjoyed his presence and conversation...Alcohol and drugs had plagued him his whole adult life, having been thru many an odd job in the past few years and due to the recession, he had been without a job for sometime. A toxicology report hasn't been released however it is known that prior to the accident "Acid" could've been a factor in his demise as reported on Facebook by local friends.

Always a bright and likable fellow,and a great one for conversation at any time of day,with hope that he has at last found peace.

Catch u on the flipside, Ed!!

lists and notes

Movies or T.V. Series, I'd like made before I Die:

-"Planetary" based on the comic book by Warren Ellis
-"Top Ten"
-A worthy sequel to "The Thing",and
Kurt Russell has to be in it
-"100 Bullets"
-"Stray Bullets", and it has to be filmed in Baltimore.Period.
-"Liberty Meadows", rated R, and filmed like "Garfield"
-"The Avengers"
-An "Uncanny X-men" television series instead of some overblown film, done ala "Smallville"
-A "Star Wars" television series that explores not only stories about other characters inbetween the film series and history of the series but also the "What if's" as well.
-"Justice League"
-"Star Wars" 7,8,9 and maybe 10,11,12....
-HellBlazer movie or tv series,preferbly with an English Actor
-"Man on Fire" sequel.. Do you hear me Tony Scott!!! It was Denzel's best movie dammit!
