I had been looking forward to the Wendi Thomas column. I didn't understand how the Sun wanted a out of town writer to deliver "metro" content. It takes at least 5 -10 years to get to know the nitty -gritty of Bmore. I think Ms. Thomas best sums it up that she felt it would be tough to leave the pulled pork for the white crab meat. See (New Sun columnist returns to former job.)
Maybe the Sun will realize that diversity is more than a transplant. Its having the feel for Baltimore and being knowledgeable about the heart of a city. What makes you click in one place sometimes doesn't click in another. BELIEVE it!
