Gov. William Donald Schaefer sometimes is angered by stories or editorials that appear in the morning or evening Sun. In fact, he is convinced the newspapers have a vendetta against him.Adding to his unhappiness is the sense that there is no one at The Sun who will listen seriously to his complaints or do anything about them.Other readers have problems with us from time to time, too. They call to point out factual errors or to complain that a particular story or headline was unfair. Sometimes, readers are upset that a photograph or story appeared at all or, less frequently, that a story should have been in the paper, but wasn't.

THIRTY-FIVE years ago, when I began my career at this newspaper, the top executive in the newsroom, was about 20 years older than I. He was a gentleman named Paul A. Banker. Last week, somewhat unexpectedly, the fourth in the line of Banker's successors arrived in Baltimore. His name is Tim Franklin, and he replaced Bill Marimow as editor of The Sun. Franklin is about 20 years younger than I am. Time has passed me by. In all these years, no one in a position of authority has asked if I would like to run the place.
