Why has The Sun been quiet on the "Cadillac" health care plan debate? If you're an ordinary citizen who has a "Cadillac" health care plan, you will pay a 40 percent excise tax on the plan. Unless of course you're a union member or government employee and have a "Cadillac" plan. Then you will not pay the tax. President Obama promised to change the way Washington does business. Special interests and the influence of lobbyists was going to end. It's time for The Sun and the national media to call him on it. Len Bollinger Send your comments to talkback@baltimoresun.

It may be time for the reigning champ of the small sports sedan category to step aside. BMW's stellar 3 series has owned the niche for pretty much forever, but a worthy competitor is growling in the wings and has the Bavarian giant squarely in its sights: Cadillac. You read that right. Cadillac's resurgence over the past decade has been nothing short of amazing. When the fearsome CTS-V set a record at Germany's fabled Nurburgring for the fastest production sedan in 2008, the antiquated Caddy catchphrase “Standard of the World” suddenly seemed a lot less hubristic.

An article in the Aug. 24, 1961, edition of the Herald Argus and Baltimore Countian reported on the arrival of a new, modern ambulance for the area. The new $7,000 Catonsville ambulance, a one-ton Chevrolet panel body truck chassis converted into an ambulance, is far superior to the old Cadillac which cost nearly $10,000, according to Deputy Fire Chief Lee Cockey . It is more durable, the metal is heavier, repairs will be cheaper, it will require less time in the shop and in all respects will be less worrisome, Chief Cockey said.

The owner of the AutoMax car dealership on Washington Boulevard said one of his salesmen felt something was wrong when Stephon Prather came there Wednesday and asked to test-drive a Cadillac. "When you look at someone who has nothing to lose and is ready to do something, you can tell," said Phil Dias, owner of the North Laurel dealership. A short time later, Prather opened fire on three Howard County police officers, striking 2-year veteran Steven Houk in the torso, according to charging documents in the case.

For the new model year, the Cadillac Seville, Eldorado, Fleetwood and DeVille offer a new 4.9-liter, 200-horsepower update of last year's 4.5-liter, 180-hp V-8.In test driving a '91 Fleetwood, we found 20 more horsepower means you move from the light a bit quicker and quieter than with the 4.5.It means that when you're on that hill and the 4.9 is under the hood, the speedometer needle rises if you press the accelerator. With the 4.5, you had to press the pedal as you approached the hill to gain the needed momentum.

The division hopes to grab a share of that market segment with the redesigned Seville and Eldorado.

The audience for "Road Scholar," which opens today at th Rotunda, certainly should include readers of The Sun. That's because this is the first movie ever about a Sun writer, if you discount Meg Ryan in "Sleepless in Seattle," and Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth Perkins in "HeSaid, She Said."Not only that: Our boy actually appears on camera most of the time. He gets to ride a big red convertible and shoot machine guns! Yes: it's "Lethal Weapon IV" with Dan Rodricks in the Mel Gibson role!Oh, forgive my little joke there, folks.

Carroll County has one of the best library systems in the state. The commissioners should do all they can to ensure that it retains that status instead of expressing hostility toward county libraries, as they did recently. A good library system says volumes about a community and its feelings toward knowledge, learning and its heritage.During their review of the library budget, the commissioners indicated, in several disparaging remarks, that Library Director Martha Makovsky had gotten accustomed to requesting "Cadillacs" rather than Chevies and that librarians earn too much money.

In his first comments since his dropped backwards pass resulted in a New York Giants touchdown, running back Cadillac Williams made no excuses. "It was just a bonehead move by me, just knowing whenever it's a lateral like that, you've got to be aware and get on the ball," Williams said Thursday. "Just a bonehead move by me. " On third-and-8 from the New York 25, quarterback Sam Bradford attempted to throw a quick screen to Williams near the left sideline. But because of pressure from the edge by the Giants' defense, Bradford had to throw the pass backwards to reach Williams.

Corralled by a ring of inflatable cushions near the back of Cadillac Ranch in the National Harbor sits Diablo, one of the state's few regularly operating mechanical bulls. On a typical Friday or Saturday night, hundreds of would-be cowboys sign a waiver and fork over $3 for a chance to test their bull-riding ability. Though a few experienced riders can stay on for as long as a minute, most last only 10 or 20 seconds, said Dathon Compton, the restaurant's general manager. But that doesn't stop them from trying.

Cadillac sales continue to accelerate, as more daring designs and youth-oriented advertising help lower the average age of buyers. After years of sliding downhill because of a lackluster lineup and stodgy image, Cadillac is regaining traction with luxury buyers. Sales are up 10 percent this year, on top of an 8 percent gain in 2003, and Cadillac has passed Mercedes to rank third among luxury brands. Three years ago it was fifth. More significant, Cadillac's traditional older owners aren't fueling the surge.

I am your scapegoat. I am your boogeyman. Brown-skinned, kinky-haired, black man, me. So I was not surprised last week when a white woman from suburban Philadelphia called police from her cell phone, claiming she had been locked in the trunk of a Cadillac by two black men. Nor was I shocked when police said Bonnie Sweeten was actually holed up in a luxury hotel at Walt Disney World and there never was a kidnapping, much less by two black men. I'm your...
