+Baltimore. With all the newspapers speculating, I would say the Washington Post would have the most input and inside knowledge. And the article I read said something to the effect of "note to Bezos- consider Baltimore" and the city does satisfy their requirements. It's a good bargain bin alternative to DC.

This is the Big One. This is the IndyCar, Olympics(tm), and downtown stadium, all rolled into one package except in this case, everyone wins instead of everyone losing!

I think it's more of a good thing if you're in an industry that benefits. I already voiced my concern about this- rent.
