Great Baltimore comebacks [Pictures]
Everybody loves a comeback. And we've had quite a few in the past year or so. Against all odds, the Grand Prix is back with new owners and a major sponsor. Denise Whiting, whose trademark of the word "hon" cost her dearly, managed a total turnaround, thanks in no small part to celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. Even Power Plant Live, long a punch line for serious Baltimore drinkers, has a new look and a fresh lease on life.
Here are seven of the more spectacular turnarounds of the past 12-odd months, as well as things we wish would come back, and a few items we'd never like to see again.

Residents are being charged too much and businesses still owe millions, according to reports in The Sun. Whatever the problem is, here's hoping it gets corrected and we never see the old system again.
