It’s fitting that this was the year the word “hon” officially was given back to Baltimore. (See “Best PR Move” in News) The hon represents so much about this town — its inherently friendly nature, its fierce pride in its working-class roots, its willingness to poke fun at itself and embrace all outsiders. It’s in this spirt that Baltimore has continued its awe-inspiring renaissance, one that is quirky, unique, and has spawned art, food, media, retail, and business that follows no one else’s cookie-cutter model. Our cat-eyed queen on the cover would agree: It’s a great time to be a “hon” — or a Baltimorean of any stripe.
