Baltimore (The City of the Unbeheld) is not missing, except within Camden Yards; a note about the new TBD website
When you drive off Exit 52 (off 95), you encounter a sign that says “General Parking”, which puts you in an isolated area the other side of Ravens Stadium, when (with the Orioles losing) there is actually plenty of parking next to Camden Yards.
I also dropped by the favorite Biker Bar, Daniel’s, in Elkridge, which I first stumbled upon in 2005 on the way back from Philly for an “Everwood Party” at King of Prussia mall.
Yesterday (Aug. 16), I noted a story by Howard Kutz in the Washington Post about the new quasi-citizen-journalism site TBD.com, created by ABC affiliate WJLA-TV in Arlington. Apparently it welcomes submission from bloggers, mainly factual, on-the-street coverage of local issues (the protracted power failures in Pepco territory after repeated summer thunderstorms would be a good topic for openers). The link is here.
