The use of bankruptcies to avoid corporate responsibility, coupled with a cash-strapped Superfund, offers a frightening glimpse into the world of corporate irresponsibility that is allowed under U.S. bankruptcy provisions and environmental policy. I support the boycotts. I do not need a BP gas station owner to tell me that the boycotts do not hurt BP. Further, to be told to go to the Gulf and volunteer (free labor) so that the station owner can continue to make money to feed his family is outlandish and selfish.

The political wisdom of today declares that the middle class must be rescued, but it's the lower class that is the most endangered segment of America. The working poor are squeezed between pressure from illegal labor and a stagnant economy. The health of this segment of our citizenry is essential to the restoration and maintenance of our national health. Indeed, history demonstrates that a society dependent upon surrogate labor is a society in decay. Given all the attention paid these days to Civil War anniversaries, the Antebellum South provides an example worth revisiting.

It is with a heavy heart that after living here for 40 years, my husband and I must bid Maryland farewell. We can no longer afford to support fiscal and social programs with which we do not agree. We moved here in 1973, bought a home we could afford, sent our children to Maryland public schools, worked for Maryland companies, paid our share of property and income taxes, and lived within our means. And now that we have retired, the state of Maryland feels it is entitled to increase the tax burden on our hard-earned retirement income.

COUNTY POLICE OFFICERS are getting out from behind their desks and back on the streets, thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers. The more than 100 volunteers who serve in the police reserve or participate in the Volunteers in Police Service programs are providing tremendous amounts of free labor to the department. County residents have not fully appreciated the magnitude of their efforts.Not only did these generous souls save the taxpayers more than $560,000 last year, they also make county law enforcement more effective.
