A lot of absurd and ridiculous things went down in Baltimore this year — but a lot of encouraging, awesome, or otherwise inspirational things happened, too — sometimes in the most surprising places. When I looked back over our posts for 2013, here are the Baltimoreans who inspired me most:
+The Charles Village residents who attempted to single-handedly take on Baltimore’s biggest aesthetic menace: the man-woman statue.
+The brains behind West Baltimore’s floating isolation tank — an unlikely spot for an unforgettable experience.
+Corollary: Everyone besides Ray Lewis working hard at the Squirrel Dance.
+The Baltimore County dad who made national news by getting arrested for speaking out against the Common Core.
+Bizarro SRB. If only she were real!
+The Baltimore Pie Man. Proof that you don’t need to win a reality TV show to be a local pastry icon.
