Welcome To Baltimore: Where The Seafood's Fresh And Politicians Fishy

Ah, yes Baltimore, a city filled with surprises and hidden treasure just waiting to be discovered!

Like Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon twice making history, as the city's first African-American female mayor and the only sitting mayor to be criminally indicted, charged with 12 counts of felony theft, perjury, fraud and misconduct in office.

Or the more than $15,348 in under-the-table gifts Ms. Sheila received from her prominent city developer former boyfriend while she was City Council president.

And the $3,400 in gift cards donated to her office for distribution to "needy families," which obviously meant buying PlayStations, digital cameras and other "essentials" for herself and her staff.

So, if you're looking for a place where the catch of the day can be rockfish or disgraced city leader, come to Baltimore and see what the buzz is all about!

Sheila, Take A Bow

You have no need to dump on Baltimore City because of Mayor Dixon. She may have to face charges of mismanagement of funds or be indicted for her poor judgement but Baltimore has been around several hundred years longer than Mayor Dixon and will be around at least several hundred years longer...politicians notwithstanding. The seafood is fresh, the people are terrific, and ALL politicians are fishy.

Nothing against Baltimore. Lovely city. But Dixon's promo video set it up too beautifully to resist. Couldn't agree with you more on that last sentence, though. I mean look at my fair state's governor, Hot Rod Blagojevich. What a catch!
