This week, Baynard Woods uncovers the “Sex Trade” in lower Charles Village, detailing the lives of four women who found themselves on the streets. This powerful story has formal portraits by J.M. Giordano and Edward Ericson Jr. explores the effects of the transgender sex trade on the neighborhood.

In City Folk,  we look at the effects of the helium shortage on Port Discovery’s birthday party industry. In Mobtown Beat, Van Smith tells the fascinating story of a woman who was given “time served” for selling a machine gun to an ATF officer  by a judge who owns a second home near the defendant’s mother, despite additional drug charges. Edward Ericson Jr. looks at the politics of drug treatment transportation and the continuing dogfight over pit bulls.

In the Arts section, we take a look at the winners of the prestigious and lucrative Mary Sawyer Baker Prize. Al Shipley profiles Severn rapper Brian Ennals and tells us What’s up with Electronic Music in his column BPM. Chloe Helton-Gallagher looks at Post Typography’s prints based on the War of 1812, and Max Robinson provides a guide to Comic Con.

In Eats and Drinks, Henry Hong takes Eat Me out to the ball game, and Cheap Eats digs in at Da Vinci’s, without finding a masterpiece.
