Pat Benatar: Hot L Baltimore's (Not Just) For Children: Nice Girl Finishes First & Demands Recount

Richard Riegel, Creem, November 1981

COLUMBIA, MARYLAND, is a "planned community" nestled among scads of functional greenery, midway between Baltimore and Washington D.C. Columbia was laid out according to the best sociological and architectural theories of the 60's and 70's, and as such, tends to be as rational and good-liberal as this month's Alan Alda brainscan. Phil Donahue would welcome Columbia and its tasteful structures to his show any morning of the week.
