I feel that this article provided a helpful overview of O'Malley's state of the state. The reporter appears to be very knowledgeable on the topic, even citing issues that were believed to be omitted from the speech. I thought a diverse perspective was provided, posing both positive and negative effects of wind energy produced in Maryland, for example. However, I believe that the article could have been better balanced with quotes from more sources than public officials, like advocacy groups and residents.
