This story has only one source (which only involves "police say"), there are no direct quotes nor any opposing sources. This article is vague and mildly disturbing. They are accusing a minor with no substantial facts or findings.
As a sibling to someone who has epilepsey, i find this entire incident horrendeous. Thank you Baltimore Sun for letting this womans voice be heard. I found this article to be informative and insightful to transgender hate crimes. I hope this article is well circulated to raise awareness.
Preakness is a huge event in Baltimore (an Nationally). This article is imformative, it details the evnt, ticket prices and entertainment. However it does not cover why the ticket sales are up 14%, it merely brushes the topic (which is the articles title).
The story seemed very dry, and definitely not up lifting. Although it presents both sides of the arguement, these sides of the stiory are barely covered and dotted with frail wuotes. The entire story and situation leaves you with an unsettleing feeling.
Birch did a wonderful insightful story on Baltimore's Ex-Mayor William Donald Schaefer. Birch illustrated schaefer by intertwining personal stories (both positive and negative) with his beliefs and the beliefs of others. The story is objective with out being callous. For an obituary Birch painted an entertain picture of a man with good intentions who was a little hard to get along with.
