Smile, Hon: You're in Baltimore #9

Smile, Hon: You're in Baltimore #9

by Willam P. Tandy

Smile Hon is like a tribute band that keeps on turning out albums. But the "revered" in question isn't Tupac, or Tori Amos, or even Frank Zappa. (all from Baltimore) It's Baltimore itself! Every issue is a little bit of history, as well as reflections on the present, written through the lens of the locals. In this issue, William, the editor writes a bit about his bout with lymphoma. There are also accounts of car thefts and antagonistic, screaming neighbors. It's surreal in the best of ways, although you get the feeling that in Baltimore, it probably seems normal.
