Being a social critic from Baltimore myself, I have to tip my hat to a particularly unique individual who came before me, H.L Mencken. With his scathing commentary and high intellect, he was often regarded as The Sage of Baltimore. He was most noted for his work covering The Scopes Trial, but the range of topics he wrote about were rather vast and most were quite entertaining.

Obviously this is just a taste of the amazing writing style of Mencken. If you enjoyed these quotes, you should start out by getting yourself a copy of A Mencken Chrestomathy, which is a compilation of his own favorite writings.
