Staff Q&A: If you could change one thing about 2011 what would it be?

Staff Q&A: If you could change one thing about 2011 what would it be?
This week we asked our b staff about the tweaks they would like to make to this past year if given the chance. Here's what they had to say.

•••• Donald Trump would be permanently afflicted with laryngitis. Luke Broadwater, reporter, The Baltimore Sun

•••• I’d have wanted fewer people embarrassing themselves (Anthony Weiner, Herman Cain) and more news of people distinguishing themselves. Where were our Sully stories? C’mon, people.


Anne Tallent, editor, b

•••• I would have tried the fried Oreos at the state fair. Maybe next time Selena Gomez performs ...

Wesley Case, reporter, b

•••• Charlie Sheen. Just ... him. Doing and saying things. Also, the existence of NBC’s “Whitney.”

Jordan Bartel, assistant editor, b

•••• That it wouldn’t lead into 2012. According to those pesky Mayans, it’s out last year here. 
Jan Diehm, designer, b

•••• Any and all coverage of Kim Kardashian. She’s a pretty woman, but she’s one of the most attention-hungry, vapid people on Earth. Run off and join Paris Hilton in the land of Obscurityville.

John-John Williams IV, reporter, The Baltimore Sun

•••• No more hurri-quake-ornadoes.

Mick Lee, Z104.3

•••• I wish Maryland would have worn the pride uniforms for every game. At least we would have been distracted from everything else taking place on the field.
