GEORGE G. BALOG is not the first or last bureaucrat whose bullying was tolerated because he produced results. But his 12-year reign of vindictiveness over Baltimore's public works department makes his punishment by a federal jury well-justified. Yet the finding against Mr. Balog and a top aide should be read in the narrow context of the case. They indeed "maliciously, wantonly and oppressively" retaliated against underlings who complained about contract irregularities. But a variety of allegations of corruption -- which the U.S. attorney and FBI are investigating -- remain unproven and may never result in prosecution.

Baltimore taxpayers face paying another $327,500 as a result of the recent federal court award against former city Public Works Director George G. Balog. A federal judge awarded the money in legal fees and expenses yesterday to Howard J. Schulman, the Baltimore attorney who successfully sued Balog and the city on behalf of two former public works managers. An eight-member federal jury awarded Jeanne Robinson and David Marc a combined $192,000 in damages last month after determining that Balog retaliated against them for criticizing a city landfill repair project.

Dan RodricksDOUG BALOG'S story - and he's sticking to it - is that he was fired because his dad did a doodle, and his brother scanned the doodle and e-mailed the doodle, and the doodle ended up on Balog's computer at work. A computer technician discovered the doodle and reported the doodle to Balog's boss - and perhaps even a higher authority - and Balog's boss fired him. The doodle wasn't pornographic. It wasn't racist. It wasn't sexist. It was, if anything, an attempt at geopolitical humor.

It's not always hard to say goodbye. Just ask former Baltimore public works director George G. Balog or Daniel P. Henson III, the city's former housing commissioner. Balog's final check from the city, which will be cut tomorrow, will be in the amount of $141,894 for unused vacation, personal and sick leave -- $22,000 more than his annual salary. Henson, who left government on Dec. 7, got an extra bump of $43,228 for his unused vacation, personal and sick days. The payouts raised the ire of the new mayor and prompted his administration to issue an order to prevent such large payments to retiring city officials in the future.
