Proving My Point


I’m pretty sure I told this story on RedMaryland Radio at one point, but never here on the blogs. Last year I was in the gift shop of the Space Needle in Seattle, buying some swag, and I go to pay by Credit Card. The cashier needs to see ID, so I provide my Maryland Driver’s License. She asks if I was from Baltimore and said that I was from right outside of it. She then ask’s me: “Is Baltimore really like it is on The Wire?”

I told her “No, it’s much more violent and much more corrupt than that.”

Thanks Mayor Dixon for helping reinforce the point
