In reference to the front page article on Oct. 7, "$1 fare eyed for free buses," I for one will not use the Charm City Circular if $1 charge is imposed; that's only one way, so the cost is really $2. I have a hybrid car, but in my opinion having a hybrid vehicle does not mean I can still drive because I use less gas and cause less damage to the atmosphere; no, it means that I too still have to drive less. The $1 (two-way, $2) charge is way more then the cost of me driving my hybrid.

If there were such an academic discipline, Orioles manager Buck Showalter would have a Ph.D. in Roster Science. He has spent the past three years manipulating personnel at the major and minor league levels so deftly that the Orioles have averaged more than 90 victories and been in playoff contention for all but a couple of weeks last September, despite never being accused of having the best talent in the American League East. Clearly, he knows what he's doing, which should be comforting to Orioles fans who are waiting to see how he and executive vice president Dan Duquette configure the 25-man roster for the upcoming AL Division Series.
