I was fortunate to be asked to appear on WYPR radio again this week. This time, I recorded an interview with Joel McCord for “Inside Maryland Politics,” a short segment that airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during “Morning Edition.”
We talked about the 2014 race for county executive in Anne Arundel County, which so far features Republican County Executive Laura Neuman, Republican Del. Steve Schuh and Democrat Joanna Conti.
I’ve been covering a case of alleged sexual assault involving Naval Academy midshipmen, and appeared on WYPR radio this week to discuss the case.
Here’s audio from my appearance on “Midday with Dan Rodricks” with my Baltimore Sun colleague Dan Rodricks, victims’ advocate and attorney Susan Burke, and Anne Kendzior, a former midshipman who is suing the Naval Academy.
I’ve been at The Baltimore Sun for nearly six weeks now, and it’s been a very busy blur. I’ve had to get comfortable with all of the new systems (e-mail, budgeting stories, filing stories, requesting photos, etc.) while covering lots and lots of news.
I’m covering Annapolis and Anne Arundel County — mainly government, but also a little bit of everything. And Anne Arundel County has no shortage of news.
In cleaning out my desk at The Capital, I found some interesting things.
I found a file folder full of thank you cards and also some nasty-grams. (“Take those carbon credits and shove them up your a—, you liberal scum” is a favorite.)
For some reason, I have a big pile of press passes and badges. I have no idea what many of them are for, but the ones issued by the White House (for covering Naval Academy graduation) are pretty cool. I’ll keep those.
Here’s perhaps the most poignant thing I found. I found the first issue of the Our Bay section that was started while I was at The Capital. Here it is, side-by-side with the final Our Bay section from earlier this month.
