Inner Harbor realities [Letter]

March 10, 2014

One of The Sun's readers was very upset about hurting the Inner Harbor's reputation with the recent reporting of a dead body found floating there, the ninth in recent months ("Sun gives the Inner Harbor a bad name," March 6).

Aren't newspapers supposed to print the facts? Should the article have tried to whitewash or soft pedal this shameful situation? Our "crown jewel" does not always gleam the way you would like it to no matter how much you try to polish it.

Gertrude Stein said it best, "A rose is a rose is a rose."
