Baltimore Sun reporter allergic to newspapers
May 23 , 2014
A reporter at Baltimore Sun mentioned in a letter to his colleagues that he's been diagnosed with an allergy to a material in newspaper ink. Reports suggest that he is now going to wear gloves at work.
Michael Dresser covers politics in Annapolis and admitted that the situation is ironic and it's justified for people to be "more amused than sympathetic."
The Wall Street Journal reported that Dresser is also allergic to dark clothing that includes a particular kind of dye, so, he will have to wear white colors even in the winter. "This transition may take some time because of the expense involved. I'm looking at Mark Twain as a possible role model."
