City Editor Augustus
Gus Haynes is an old-school reporter's editor who loves to chase down stories and burn corrupt politicians. Claiming he flunked out of journalism school, he has a deep institutional knowledge of Baltimore having worked his way up from district police reporting (where he met Major Dennis Mello) and a stint on the labor beat. He can read between the lines of any press conference or canned statement, and calls it like he sees it. Vulgar and unrefined, he chafes against the new management types at the Sun. He's quick to compliment deserving young reporters — but not so much that it makes them lazy; he likes to keep his reporters hungry. Dedicated to getting it right, he wakes up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat if he thinks he missed a detail.
