Finally, some positive coverage of Peter Angelos [Letter]

November 26, 2013

It was really great to read The Sun article about Peter Angelos' donation to the Franklin Square's lung center ("Angelos donates $2.5M for lung center at Franklin Square," Nov. 21). I have listened to all the negative voices calling for his head since he bought the Orioles to keep them the Baltimore Orioles. Mr. Angelos is the poster boy of the American dream, rising from a humble Greektown family to one of the most successful lawyers in the country. He never turned his back on his city or his state, and he continues to "redistribute the wealth" in a profound, personal way. Over the years he has shunned the publicity for the myriad donations he has made to various organizations throughout Maryland.

In a world devoid of role models, outside of actors and athletes, Peter Angelos would be a great man to emulate.

Thank you Mr. Angelos, and thanks to The Sun for an article that does not call for his head on a pike because Glen Davis or Albert Belle couldn't do their jobs. We are so fortunate to have Mr. Angelos as our neighbor.

Dan Shannahan, Fullerton
