Leave Negro Mountain alone

February 23, 2011

I say leave our mountains alone ("Controversy over 'Negro Mountain' reveals urban-rural divide," Feb. 20)! A simple solution could be to add an explanation of the history of the name. It is really silly to change the names of Polish and Big Savage mountains also. In this time of Maryland's money problems, people without jobs, homeless folks, hungry children, firemen, policemen and teachers losing their jobs, it seems that using much needed money on this is a terrible waste.
