Editor: I must respectfully take issue with the opinions and demeanor of Barry Rascovar's Aug. 25 column. In the first part, Mr. Rascovar accuses ''candidates'' and several named legislators of ''cowardice'' and lack of backbone because ''they refuse to tell voters the truth'' about Maryland's tax structure.
He then proceeds to cite the ''truth'' he wants told, i.e., that income tax is not ''progressive'' enough. ''A postal worker earning $25,000 per year pays 7.5 percent ... to the state. But an entrepreneur earning $250,000 pays the same percentage. That's unfair.''
Really! One individual pays $1,875, the other $18,750. Presumably for the same services to each individual, one pays 1,000 per cent more than the other. I guess that is unfair.
