Thank you for staying on top of Maryland's chicken companies for their unfair advantage in our state's politics ( "Perdue's ruffled feathers," Sept. 22). I've been an avid supporter of Food & Water Watch for many years and appreciate their hard work highlighting that not only does Jim Perdue "have a seat at the table," he also has a seat in the governor's mansion. It's time for "big chicken" to pay their fair share. Stephanie Compton, Baltimore - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

It was a great pleasure to read Sunday's edition of The Sun. For the first time in a while, the pleasure of reading your newspaper didn't stem solely from the sports section but from the editorial pages as well. Though well written, articulate, and amusing, the usual Sun editorial page articles come stamped with the Maryland Democratic Party's seal of approval. Editorials are structured around the author's opinion, and readers are well aware of this. However, editorials gain credibility and respect if facts and figures are brought to bear before the author states his or her claim.

Hannah Sheats raises goats, makes clothes and bakes items with the 4-H to show at the Maryland State Fair. But the 11-year-old Parkton girl hasn't been to the State Fairgrounds in Timonium as much as she'd like since Baltimore County public schools opened Wednesday. Hannah, who attends Hereford Middle School, thinks she'd be learning more at the fair. "At school, in the first couple of weeks you don't do anything. It's kind of pointless," she said.

If there was a lesson to be learned at the mule pull and mule jump at the Howard County Fair, it was this: If a mule doesn't want to do something, it won't. In the dusty ring Saturday morning, farmers called mules, cajoled them and even tried to dizzy them by leading them in circles. Some farmers jumped up in the air to encourage the beasts to leap over a plastic bar; the mules paid them no mind. "Mules are a lot different than horses," said Mary Streaker, who, along with her husband, Howard, organized the mule pull at the fair for the past five years.
