As the de facto editor of this blog, I welcome Plumb Lines’ newest contributor, Michael E. van Landingham. He “knows about Rap” and “lives in Baltimore,” so he certainly adds important expertise to the blog. He’s gotten his tenure off to a great start with a post about cul-de-sacs.
UPDATE: It turns out Michael lives in St. Petersburg, Russia, not Baltimore. These cities are not easily confused with one another. Nonetheless he intends to live in Baltimore in the near future, so perhaps he will still be able to bring that unique Baltimorean perspective to the blog.
