BCCC student wins Virgin Mobile FreeFest ticket giveaway

Lots of readers retweeted, replied and commented to get Midnight Sun's free tickets to Virgin Mobile FreeFest Saturday.

But in the end, the winner is Keichel Lewter aka @quechele, a Baltimore native who wants to see rapper M.I.A.

Lewter's are schizophrenic tweets: she threatened to pelt Midnight Sun with ripe tomatoes if she didn't win the tickets, and then five minutes later said yours truly was good to look at. But that's part of her online charm. 

The 23-year-year old was born here, and now lives in Owings Mills. She works at the University of Maryland's medical school, and also attends Baltimore City Community College, where she's preparing to study engineering.

She wants to eventually transfer to Morgan State University. 

Lewter had heard about the original FreeFest giveaway, but only when it was too late. 

She says she's looking forward to seeing M.I.A. 

She will be tweeting from the festival Saturday, along with Midnight Sun, features intern Peter Krause, reporter June Torbati, and a handful of other tweeting correspondents. Our official FreeFest feed is here.

Sentence structure?

"Lewter's heard about the original FreeFest giveaway, but only when it was too late. "

all of a sudden every commenter thinks their last name is webster or merriam.


Actually, its "Fog Horn"


I prefer these tasteful DJ air horns myself:

Anonymous acts like Maza's misstep totally changed the meaning of his post.
