Baltimore's weirdest news [Pictures]

Even when Halloween isn't in the air, Baltimore can be a strange place. But that's one reason we love it so. Hey, we're a city whose mayors have included, at various times, a guy dressed in a duck suit and a woman who forgot that gift cards were supposed to be gifts. We're a city that's given the world Babe Ruth, Spiro Agnew, Mr. Boh, Frank Zappa, John Waters and Stacy Keibler. Now there's a cast of characters that would do any city proud. Here are a baker's dozen of examples (unlucky 13, how seasonally appropriate) of news stories over the years that have caught Baltimore's eye, stories that give the city character -- or maybe, put better, shows off its characters. Some are tragic, some are lighthearted, but all are just plain weird.-- Chris Kaltenbach Also see: • The archived news storiesBaltimore Halloween 2010
