The Sun's editorial board just does not get it ("Neuman's reckless veto," April 30). Maryland has been taxed to the hilt in the last seven years. There is nothing left to give. There have been 37 tax and fee increases. That is a failure of leadership here in Maryland. Constantly crowing about making budget cuts that never occurred is a failure of leadership. Perhaps, The Sun should stop pushing its progressive agenda and start being objective when it comes to the tax-and-spend ways of Annapolis.

In regards to "Misoverestimating Bush" (April 25), it's surprising that this complete nincompoop could somehow manipulate not only the intelligence community in this country but even our allies into reporting that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. The "liar" Bush, moreover, just because of a rapacious appetite for war, started a war knowing there were no such weapons and with full realization that it would make his administration look foolish and incompetent. Brilliant on the one hand and stupid on the next.

When I read The Sun's editorial summing up George W. Bush's presidency as "lousy," I couldn't help but wonder how the editorial board will assess President Barack Obama's service to our country ("Misoverestimating Bush," April 28). To date, Mr. Obama's presidency has been marred by scandal after scandal, broken promises, and profligate spending resulting in the largest deficit this country has ever seen. Let's hope The Sun can be as honest about Mr. Obama's legacy as they think they were about Mr. Bush's.

Many thanks to the Baltimore Sun for an eloquent editorial on the Ben Carson saga ("Ben Carson and the price of free speech," April 13). This is a work of art! The Sun's staff has captured the essence of free speech with professorial precision. And, have accepted free speech that may be controversial, as long as it stays in context. We also got a lesson in what happens when our so-called free speech becomes aberrant, degrading, and outside the limits of good taste. This piece should also send an alert to those who are steadfast in their defense of Dr. Ben. Loyalty and preconception must be tempered with common sense and reality.

I'm not sure how many readers got the gist of The Sun's editorial, "Carrying petition reform too far," (Jan. 30), but I absolutely did. Let me be very clear. The Sun's advice to anyone who disagrees with our far-left thinking state government should be just "forgetaboutit" because we elected these know-it-all politicians to think and act for us in each and every scenario without question! I don't think so and neither should the Sun's editorial board. Gail Householder, Marriottsville Text NEWS to 70701 to get Baltimore Sun local news text alerts

Given the irrelevancy of the Harford County delegation to the Maryland General Assembly, it probably doesn't much matter what's presented to the county's representatives to Annapolis. With that said, the way the Harford County Board of Education's legislative agenda was put together recently is a real head scratcher. Kathy Carmello, who is facilitator of governmental relations for Harford County Public Schools, presented the school board's 2013 legislative agenda to the school board at its Nov. 19 meeting.
