  • By reaching out to others, Hendricks touched us all

    Maybe Elrod Hendricks could only have happened in Baltimore, where our heroes don't have to be bigger than life. They just have to be like us ... or, in Elrod's case, they just have to like us as much as we like them. I mean, in what other city could the...
