During a recent pro-O'Malley rally in Annapolis, union boss "Josh" Williams, president of the Metropolitan Washington Council of AFL-CIO, said of the Maryland State House: "Are we going to let our piece of property be taken over?" The last time I checked, the unions didn't own the State House. The citizens of Maryland do. Through these words, Williams articulated the need for fundamental political change in Maryland more eloquently than any Republican ever could. Richard Cross, Baltimore

Lou Davis, the dean of State House reporters, cracked the Annapolis equivalent of the "glass ceiling" Friday as he became the only journalist honored with a meal in his name at Chick & Ruth's deli of Main Street. Gov. Martin O'Malley and House Speaker Michael E. Busch joined in the ceremony at which "the Lou Davis" -- a lox, eggs and onion platter with deli potatoes and toast -- was added to the menu wall alongside dozens of sandwiches and other meals named for politicians. Teddy Levitt, owner of Chick & Ruth's, said Davis has been a customer at the deli since the 1960s.

Maryland's Democratic and Republican parties will be sharing at least on thing this year: A landlord. The state GOP is moving into new offices at 95 Cathedral Street, an Annapolis building owned by the Rams Head Group, according the John Porter, a Republican party spokesman. Porter stressed that the two parties will be in separate buildings. "We're not sharing space" he wrote in an email. Maryland Democratic party is headquartered at 33 West Street. MD's GOP has been on West Street for the past decade, but had to give up its lease this $6,000 a month lease this year to reduce costs.

ANNAPOLIS — The Rev. Richardson Libby certainly has an unflagging dedication to history. Thanks to his perseverance, the right version of the Stars and Stripes is hanging inside the State House rotunda. Libby, who lives across the street from the Hammond-Harwood House in Annapolis, discovered that the flag thought to be an accurate reproduction of one made in 1783 was incorrect. The blue field of 13 eight-point stars should have been vertical instead of horizontal. He worked with historians to rectify the situation over a period of several years, and the corrected banner was unveiled on Flag Day 2009.
