Peter’s a little worried that when his book comes out, people will think he hates Baltimore. In fact, he loves it. There was a very nice piece on NPR’s Morning Edition today, an interview with crime writer Laura Lippman, about how Baltimore is f***ed up, but still wonderful. There’s discussion (and samples) of the Baltimore accent–now you know what John Travolta was trying for in Hairspray–and, the whole reason I’m posting this, brief but rapturous discussion of Faidley’s crab cakes in Lexington Market. Good eatin’, hon. No visit to Charm City is complete without them.
