Regarding your article "Police, fire unions oppose mayor's new pension plan" (July 8), why do these two groups of public service employees think they are better than the tax payers of Maryland? What other employer lets it's employees retire after 20 years of service and pays for their pensions and health care for the rest of their lives? I know several retired policemen who receive their pensions and now work for the Department of Homeland Security, from which they will collect another pension paid for by taxpayers.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland has filed a federal employment discrimination complaint against a Maryland hair salon on behalf of an employee who says he was fired for being HIV-positive. Representatives for Ratner Cos., which owns the Hair Cuttery in Greenbelt, said in a statement he was fired for "repeated inappropriate behavior," including verbally abusing co-workers in front of clients. A company document outlining his HIV status as the cause for his termination — which the ACLU included in the complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission — "inaccurately described the reason for his dismissal," they said.

I guess I should be glad that that Jay Hancock acknowledges the fact that public employees are "essential" and that they deserve to be "decently compensated, especially firefighters and police" ("Balto. County takes a step to defuse the pension bomb," April 11). Mr. Hancock's analysis appears to be somewhat simplistic and the only thing I really got out of reading his piece is that it is a good thing that Baltimore County pays less than the state in pension benefits. Clearly, Baltimore County has developed some good ideas to deal with its pension obligations.

Faced with Friday's early afternoon playoff game, school officials and business owners in the Baltimore area are preparing for a day of empty classrooms and vacant work spaces. Sort of. "I don't know how big the number is, but there will definitely be some kids out," predicted Gilman School Headmaster Henry Smyth, himself an Orioles fan with tickets for Friday's game who faced the quandary of what to do. He and his two boys will not be going to the game, Smyth said. But he understands if some parents decide to make baseball the priority.

The Little Sisters of the Poor are not monitoring or limiting the medical treatment of their employees ("Little Sisters should respect workers," Dec. 28). Their employees are free to seek contraceptives and abortifacients from a variety of sources at very low cost. They merely do not want to violate their vows and consciences. As is obvious from their lifetime commitments, they take their vows very seriously and there is no compelling need for us to expect them to violate their vows.

A few minutes into the song, BAM! — a guy wearing a scary mask and elf costumes popped out of the box. The reactions are priceless.

About 200 Maryland Department of the Environment employees on one floor out of the four the agency occupies at its Baltimore headquarters were granted administrative leave Monday as officials dealt with an infestation problem. State officials found bed bugs in the office, located in the Montgomery Park Business Center in southwest Baltimore, in late August. The agency hired an exterminator who performed an inspection of the infested floor Monday. Other parts of the agency remain open, officials said.
