For those of you who live in the DC area, more than likely you read DCist.com. I, being a heavy user (and abuser) of Google Reader, am a huge fan of the email-a-post function.
So today, when DCist posted a story about the Mayor of Baltimore resigning over a scam involving the embezzlement of gift cards, I had to send it to Patrick. (We have a long-standing beef, in which I tease him about being from Maryland…)
Frankly I’m amazed there was a Baltimore corruption scandal not involving crack cocaine or prostitution. Skimming gift cards is a step in the right direction.
I countered that that’s sort of DC’s game (paging Marion Barry), but either way, it’s good to see that Baltimore is moving on up.
