Jon B. Singer, a successful Baltimore businessman who was active in Jewish philanthropic causes that ranged from helping those suffering from drug abuse to mentoring young men and women starting businesses, died of pancreatic cancer Aug. 31 at his Pikesville home. He was 71. "His compassion and generosity knew no bounds. Even though he ran several businesses and was a devoted family man, he always found time to help those who were in need," said Jerry Sutton, who was executive director of House of Hope, a Reisterstown Road recovery facility that Mr. Singer founded for Jewish men struggling to overcome drug addiction and substance abuse.

All day Tuesday, they came to the Grand Cru wine bar with swollen red eyes, hugging one another and trying to make sense of the loss of a good friend and boss. They lifted a glass and reminisced about Nelson Carey, the genial and worldly publican of Belvedere Square, whose Grand Cru has been a popular destination for a decade. Mr. Carey, whose European-style wine bar and patisserie was more than a home away from home for an eclectic and devoted band of regulars, died early Tuesday of heart failure at Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

There seems little question that Del. Jon Cardin is devoted to his wife ( "Cardin regrets missed committee votes, defends absences," May 8). After all, in addition to missing almost 75 percent of his committee votes to be with her, remember that in 2009, he used Baltimore City Police helicopter and marine units to perform a fake raid and arrest before offering her an engagement ring. If Delegate Cardin (attention, voters, he is not the same as U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin) were running for Husband of the Year, his dedication would be hard to match.

I was surprised and a little offended at the prominence given in the Leader to a photo of some people demonstrating on overpasses to impeach President Obama. Is demonstrating against the president really the most dynamic thing happening in Laurel so as to warrant a half-page photo of the participants with their "Impeach Obama" signs? I sincerely hope not.

The ACLU of Maryland is calling for legislators to halt funding to religious and private schools, saying that taxpayer money should be put toward the state's funding obligation to public schools. In a release, the advocacy organization called a taxpayer subsidy of $500,000 slated to go to private schools next year "unfair. " The funding, included in the state's supplementary budget, was scheduled to be reviewed in the House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday.  “Taxpayer funding should not be used for textbooks and technology at private and religious schools, especially when the state's fiscal climate that is just beginning to recover,” Sara Love, public policy director for the ACLU of Maryland, said in a statement.  The organization went on to say: "Our public funds should be dedicated to public schools.

Now I think I know what it feels like to be Jewish at Christmas time. But at least in Baltimore, Jewish folks can find each other on Christmas and make alternate plans. A lot of my Jewish friends go to the movies on Christmas, for example. Sounds like a reasonable idea to me, but I couldn't find even a single person to meet me at the movies Sunday night when the Ravens played the 49ers ("Baltimore party hosts go all out for the Super Bowl ," Feb. 3). For all I know, the movies weren't even open.
