Jettisoning the long-awaited Red Line. Releasing a transportation investment map that includes the whole state…except this weird blank spot in place of Baltimore City. A unilateral decision to close the city jail. Is Maryland Governor Larry Hogan really declaring a war on Baltimore, as some critics suggest?

Washington DC is not part of any state, which makes them the best, most impartial judges to determine which is the best state in America. The answer? Maryland, of course– but not necessarily for the reason you might expect.

The Washington Post seems to have a complicated relationship with Baltimore. When they aren’t hating on our restaurants, they’re condescending to us. So when I saw that WaPo sports blog writer Matt Terl had written a guide to Baltimore food for the DC sports fan, I was a little… nervous. But it’s actually pretty good! Terl manages to work in mentions of lake trout, Otterbein cookies, Resurrection Ale, and Smearcase. Not bad for a Washingtonian…

Oh, Washington Post. At least you’re trying. After publishing a condescending article about Baltimore earlier this year, the WaPo is clearly trying to make it up to us with a fawning article about a beloved Baltimore delicacy:  pit beef. But once again, they kinda mess it up. (Fail #1:  They mention hons in the first paragraph.)
