Full Disclosure: When media outlets don't tell you their relationships, they distort the truth
Smalltimore: It's a bullshit designation used by white people to describe the so-called "white L." Nevertheless, it's hard to report on the city's art scene without encountering dozens of people you know, which is why I have this column called "Conflicts of Interest." Even if you start out knowing no one, eventually, you write a story, see the subject later at a bar, have drinks, whatever . . . and then you have to write about him or her again. How do you deal with it?
