If you don't mind some of the cruft, you can simply add the baltimoresun feeds straight from the RSS section (http://www.baltimoresun.com/services/rss/) That said, the Sun seems to add a LOT of extraneous crap in that feed, so I used the following to strip things out.

This is _really_ rough/ugly though. I'm mostly hacking it from examples and tial and error, but it seems to be working for my purposes.

If you want to read comments - simply remove the following line:

remove_tags_after = dict(name='div', attrs={'class':'shirttail-promo right clearfix'})

Code:
#!/usr/bin/env  python

__license__            = 'GPL v3'
__copyright__          = '2010, Josh Hall'

from calibre.web.feeds.news import BasicNewsRecipe

    oldest_article = 1
    max_articles_per_feed = 100
    masthead_url = 'http://www.baltimoresun.com/images/logo.png'

    remove_tags_before = dict(name='div', attrs={'class':['story', 'entry']})
    remove_tags_after = dict(name='div', attrs={'class':'shirttail-promo right clearfix'})
    keep_only_tags    = [dict(attrs={'class':['story',  'story-body-text',  'story-body',  'byline',  'articlebody',  'entry',  'entry-body',  'entry-more']})]
                           
    remove_tags      = [   dict(name='div', attrs={'class':['articlerail', 'sphereTools', 'tools', 'toppaginate', 'entry-footer-left', 'entry-footer-right',  'shirttail-promo right clearfix', 'clearfix']}),

	                   dict(name='div', attrs={'id':['footer', 'article-promo']}),
	       ]
    feeds          = [
         (u'Top Headlines', u'http://www.baltimoresun.com/rss2.0.xml'),

Redid this pretty substantially using the Chicago Tribune as a base as these are both Tribune papers. It runs a lot faster now and is fairly clean. The only oddity is that The Baltimore Sun's version of the Nation/World feed flat out will not work with Calibre (even when added as a basic recipe RSS feed). In terms of content however, it is identical to the feed on the Chicago Tribune, so I've chosen to use that instead.

Code:
from __future__ import with_statement
__license__ = 'GPL 3'
__copyright__ = 'Original 2009, Kovid Goyal <kovid@kovidgoyal.net>'
__copyright__= 'Modified 2011,  Josh Hall <jwtheiv@gmail.com>'
__docformat__ = 'restructuredtext en'
