O'Malley is a talker, not a doer [Letter]

December 03, 2013

We are told the state has wrested back control of the troubled Baltimore City Detention Center ("Baltimore BGF jail smuggling case hits 19 more suspects," Nov. 21).

According to Gov. Martin O'Malley, since April the state has redoubled efforts to crack down on corruption and improve security at the correctional institution. But what about the period before April? I recall the governor spending a lot of time on the Sunday morning talk shows.

If he had spent less time in front of the cameras and more time doing the tedious work of running the state, he might have averted some of these problems.
