It has quotes from reliable sources to confirm that Kweisi Mfume is not going to be a candidate for Baltimore mayor. It gave a brief summary of past issues with the office of the mayor and a brief history of Mfume.

People who have worked on the water for the majority of their lives will have a better understanding of what can be done to help it and the crab population. Their opinions and suggestions shouldn't be dismissed.

Maryland is known for the blue crab, I hope that they continue to keep restrictions in place to protect the females so that numbers continue to rise. Just because they have gone up doesn't mean we can take away the precautions.

I have grown up around the Bay and it's sad that it can be so difficult to get things moving to help it, especially when we are the ones that damaged it in the first place.

This article gives you enough background of the situation with oysters to allow you to grasp the frustration people have in being able to farm them.

The article had a lot of good information, but it felt to me as if it was half based on a profile of Andres Alonso and the other half on the problems of the school system in Baltimore. I think it might have worked better as one or the other, or even two separate articles.

Opening the story with someone's personal experience helps to highlight the issue at hand. Readers can often connect to a story better when they see there is a personal connection for someone instead of just the facts.

The photos draw you in, I would have liked to have seen a picture of the Trail Tracker to see what it is that bird watchers are using. Maybe added a quote of what a visitor thought of using the Trail Tracker for the first time?

I think more Americans are aware of this than what this article implies, just that no one has spelled it out in such an obvious way in a while.

Interesting possibility for recent college graduates, if they want to do other things before getting tied down to a job in one location this sounds like it gives them the perfect opportunity to do so.

History is one of my favorite topics, it's nice to compare a local community like Towson to see how much has changed.

It is good journalism for breaking news. As not all of the information has been released, you cannot expect it to be a long article. A follow-up on more information as it develops would make this good journalism as well.

Despite the birther issue, I think Donald Trump could have a successful campaign. He is a skilled businessman who knows how to balance a budget.

This left me with wanting to know more about the effects that could be seen in the Bay. Considering the strong lifestyle that is connected to the Bay, and with summer approaching means a higher demand for crabs, there is certainly more information and sources out there that could be explored.

Wish there would be more coverage of the damage that is still taking place. Once the immediate situation is resolved no one seems to want to linger to see the after-effects, they would rather go on to the next current story.
