I could see the headline as soon as I saw the tweet: NPR reports orioles leaving Baltimore. But given Baltimore's history, that would be too much. There's no trifling with teams leaving Baltimore. And we aren't talking about the team, though what a scoop that would be for NPR. This report is in relation to the birds themselves. According to a report on NPR's Morning Edition this morning , a National Audubon Society study says migratory patterns for birds have changed so much due to global warming that the Baltimore region could soon be without the Baltimore oriole, a black and orange bird that symbolizes its baseball club.

Lorenzo Orestes is a hero. He is the Cuban pilot who defected to the United States in a military jet 22 months ago and then flew back to Cuba in a Cessna a few weeks ago to rescue his family.Jorge Proenza is also a hero. He and 47 others escaped from Cuba when they seized a commercial airliner last month, landing in Miami to applause and TV cameras.When it comes to Haitian refugees, however, we do not find heroes.In fact, we do not even find their names. After searching through dozens of stories on the men, women and children who have braved 600 miles of open water to come to the United States, I cannot find a single Haitian refugee named in the press.

A proposal earlier this week to provide temporary shelter at a Baltimore City office building for child migrants from Central America who arrive in this country without a parent or guardian appears to have been shelved for the moment, after Sen. Barbara Mikulski and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake raised concerns over the facility's appropriateness. Metro West is an empty office building with no infrastructure for residential use. It's not an appropriate residence for potentially hundreds of children.

At the very end of your editorial on Maryland's unhappy residents you brought up a very interesting point but then failed to address it: People retire to Florida ( "Maryland's unhappy residents," May 9). They do it for two main reasons: The weather and the fact that there's no income tax on their retirement benefits. Somehow Florida manages to exist with all those seniors not paying into the system at every whim of the governor and legislature to dip into their pockets. What could Maryland do to keep them here?
