Fact: Marin Alsop is now in the final round of Baltimore Celebrity Smackdown as proctered by the Baltimore Sun. This is all well and good and I am quite pleased that the BSO and its conductor are getting such delightful press, but is anyone else disappointed that said smackdown is not accompanyed by claymation deathmatches? Because I am. What kind of smackdown is this? A purely metaphorical one? LAME.
Nevertheless, it is our own dear Marin and we must support her. As such, vote for her here with all speed, and possibly vote often if I understand how this works. Personally, I think she should have this thing locked up. I didn’t even know Stacey Keibler was from (in?) Baltimore, I vaguely think Tom Tasselmeyer might be some sort of journalist or radio announcer or sportsperson or… something… and I never did finish Anne Tyler’s Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant. Alsop for the win!
