My Baltimore Heroes of 2013



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.

+The Ravens, duh. For so many reasons. And Ravens fans, of course.
