In the Big House

Today, I attended my first gubernatorial press conference, at the State House in Annapolis. Here is a photo I took of Governor (and former Baltimore mayor) Martin O'Malley speaking with reporters in attendance:

Beginning with the third issue of Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore!, and throughout O'Malley's tenure as mayor, I would send copies of each new edition to his office at City Hall. And to my surprise, he actually sent me several brief thank-you notes in return.

    REPORTER: What are you going to do about the state's rising defecit?

    O'MALLEY: We're going to need a bigger budget.

    REPORTER: Marty, the summer is over. You're the Governor of shark city. What are you going to do?

    O'MALLEY: We're gonna hire Quint to kill the shark.

    REPORTER: That doesn't prove a damn thing!

    O'MALLEY: Well it proves one thing. I proves that you wealthy college boys don't the education enough to admit when you're wrong.

    REPORTER: What the hell are you talking about?

    O'MALLEY: Not only that but I'm responsible for public safety around here.

    REPORTER: Are you going to close the beaches?

    O'MALLEY: I have no further comment.
