A cheap shot at Gov. O'Malley

March 09, 2010

I'm not a fan of Gov. Martin O'Malley, but I think Candus Thomson's 17-paragraph diatribe was a cheap shot at our governor ("Taking Name Dropping to a Whole New Level," Mar. 7).

So what if the governor has his name and photo plastered all over Maryland Department of Natural Resources brochures and bulletins? So what if he sends out congratulatory and aggrandizing news releases hyping his accomplishments and goals?

All the governors do it. They've done it for eons and they'll continue to do it.

A few paragraphs would have been enough, but Ms.Thomson beat the dead horse for two columns worth!

Please stick to your outdoors writing, Ms. Thomson ( which you're good at), and refrain from political editorializing.
