Best It's-All-About-Me


We here at Baltimore’s Most Opinionated Alternative Weekly love the sound of our own voices, but at the end of the day let’s not kid ourselves about what these Best of Baltimore awards are: a very, very, very, very small group of Baltimoreans saying things in their out-loud voices. They’re intended to heap praise on the things we like and, well, sometimes toss snide comments at the things that annoy us. They come from a place of love, though, because we heart our city and, like many residents, want to see the good get better and the bad get less worse. Which is why this winter when the LOF/t went through its, uh, organizational changes, we were distressed to learn that the framed award for the 2009 Best New Theater laurel we gave to the LOF/t last year became a contended item during the performance space’s, uh, management transition. Now, we realize we have absolutely no control over these awards once we mail them out, but in light of actual possession of said framed piece of paper being turned into interpersonal leverage, we wanted to say two things right quick. 1) We believe that what makes Baltimore good are that its people band together to make Something Happen—such as creating an arts district—and that the city will become great only through the continued cooperative work of its creative thinkers and doers; and 2) Congratulations LOF/t for winning a Best of Baltimore award that is so incontrovertibly deserved.
