In a recent Health and Style section article on workout gear designed for nighttime exercising, a Nike show was featured ("See & be seen," Dec. 13). Is The Sun aware that Baltimore is the home of Under Armour, a company employing hundreds in Maryland, a leader in sportswear innovation and sales worldwide, the sponsor of the Baltimore Running Festival and a maker of running shoes?

Why would The Sun feature a Nike running shoe instead of one from Under Armour? Since I'm not a runner I cannot tell you if one is better than the other. What I do know is that the Sun is no longer the Baltimore Sun but the Tribune Sun. Come on, be a homer and support the local guy, buck the management in Chicago.
