I am sure I speak for most Marylanders when I say that Attorney General Doug Gansler and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown have let us down with their bickering and mudslinging and dirty political tactics throughout this gubernatorial campaign. I can't go a day without seeing an outrageously obnoxious ad on TV or receiving a slimy flier in the mail. It doesn't have to be this way. On the contrary, Del. Heather Mizeur has been a breath of fresh air since day one. She has remained positive, even at moments it might have been easy to take a cheap shot at her opponents.

What a breath of fresh air was the letter from Rachel McClellan ( "I'm keeping my Ray Rice jersey," Sept. 24). I don't own a Rice jersey. If I did, I would not only keep it, I would wear it in public. It is always amazing to me how the self-righteous among us can act as if they have the right to "cast the first stone. " To be sure, domestic violence is wrong. In my opinion, all violence is wrong. However, there are always two sides to every incident no matter how egregious it appears.

Mobile technology is changing the way we communicate, shop, work and travel. Ride-sharing companies such as Uber are bringing much needed choice and competition to a stagnant taxi industry that has failed to advance with the times ( "Uber to file long appeal of Maryland proposal to regulate it as taxi operator ," May 29). Unfortunately, Maryland regulators have also failed to modernize the antiquated policies that restrict access to convenient, affordable transportation options and increased economic opportunities.

Morihiro Hosokawa probably will not remain prime minister of Japan long, but he is making the most of his brief experience at the head of a fragile eight-party coalition dedicated to radical reform. So far, his changes are of style and rhetoric. But they break taboos, and the taboos are likely to remain superseded after Mr. Hosokawa has left the scene.In a press conference and in his first policy speech to the parliament, Mr. Hosokawa apologized for Japanese imperialism in the 1930s and 1940s.

Star investor Warren Buffett, chosen interim chairman of Salomon Brothers Inc. in the wake of its scandal over improper government securities trading, quickly issued a warning to employees when he took the helm. If they do anything to further tarnish the reputation of that Wall Street firm by violating rules, Buffett said, he promised to be ruthless in dealing with them.This warning from a wise Nebraskan who has made a personal fortune from shrewd and honest investment is, of course, a breath of fresh air. It understandably has been applauded in investment circles.

To save money, U.S. airlines are circulating less fresh air into the cabins of many airplanes. As a result, flight attendants and some passengers have begun to complain of headaches, nausea and other health problems, especially after long flights.The reduction of fresh air is done only on newer planes. Older aircraft built before the mid-1980s provided cabins with 100 percent fresh air that was circulated every three minutes.But the newer models provide half fresh air and half recirculated air that is freshened every six or seven minutes or longer.

First it was elevators. Then smoking was banned on the job and in restaurants. Now the next frontier in smoking prohibition is in sight: the great outdoors.Around the country, nonsmokers are staking out new territory in their quest to restrict smoking and claim fresh air.Take Santa Cruz, Calif., where smokers can no longer take a puff while standing in line to buy movie tickets or wait for a bus.Or Mesa, Ariz., where smoking is prohibited within 25 feet of any public building.Or Sharon, Mass.

Q: I recently bought my first house. The former owner smoked and had pets, which left a lot of odors. What can I do?Q: The bathroom in a home we recently bought has strong odors that we haven't been able to eliminate. Any suggestions?A: In general, the best bets for removing odors from buildings are fresh air, sunshine and water.I'd start by ventilating the areas thoroughly, using fans if possible to pull fresh air in and expel stale air. It may be necessary to allow the room to ventilate for several days to make a significant difference.

Regarding The Sun's recent editorial on the Baltimore County schools superintendent's effort to impose an 8-period schedule on all Baltimore County high schools ( "Signs of trouble in county schools?" Feb. 25), I have to say, Amen. As a parent of Hereford High School students, the logic in the editorial is a breath of fresh air! Kathleen S.

A few words on the new pope. Since ascending to the papacy in March, the former Jorge Mario Bergoglio has managed to surprise and impress the religious and irreligious alike by living a brand of faith seldom seen on the public stage. Pope Francis insists on carrying his own bags, living in a simple apartment and cooking his own supper. He has largely shunned the papal Mercedes-Benz in favor of a 5-year-old Ford Focus. One of the earliest acts of his papacy was to wash and kiss the feet of a dozen young prisoners, two of them girls, at least one of them a Muslim.

The recent Art Outside at Druid Hill Park returned the park, Baltimore, and its environs to a rare and nostalgic experience ("Arts patron revives Druid Hill outdoor festival," May 17). To see the diversity of attendees melding among the art, entertainment and sheer fun - all within a unique, and naturally picturesque setting in the city - was a welcome breath of fresh air! The happening not only commemorated the 150th anniversary of the Druid Hill Park Reservoir, it also inspired people to pause, take a relaxed break from the distresses of the world and have an old-fashioned good time.

Laura Neuman comes to the job of Anne Arundel County executive as an almost complete outsider to county (and Maryland) politics. She spent a career in the private sector, then less than two years working for a Democratic administration in another county before being named last week to a post that makes her the second-highest-ranking Republican in public office in Maryland. She has not worked on campaigns, much less run one of her own, and she is being greeted with no small amount of skepticism by the GOP. She could be in for a steep learning curve in both the policies and the politics of her new job. But Ms. Neuman, who met today with The Sun's editorial board, may also be the kind of leader Anne Arundel County needs right now. She comes to office in the wake of the trial, conviction and resignation of John Leopold, whose political and personal misdeeds brought dishonor to the county and sapped the morale of the government he led. Ms. Neuman has no association with him or with his opponents, and that may help her be seen as an honest broker in the process of rooting out those who were complicit in the Leopold scandal - an effort she has already begun.

I have spent three half-days at a hospital this week. Two were at the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins  and one was at Mercy Medical Center . In a medical world that can be overwhelmingly bureaucratic, efforts to humanize hospitals make a big difference.    The first and last visits were at Wilmer, where art is everywhere: on the walls in the waiting rooms, halls, examination rooms and offices, even on...

Let's see, what kind of bar should we try tonight? Brew pub? Sports bar? Martini bar? Scotch bar? Tequila bar? Maybe it's time for a breath of fresh air - well, as fresh as one can get in even the fanciest saloon. How about an oxygen bar? Yes, in the depths of Baltimore's ozone-saturated summer, an oxygen bar has opened for business, and its patrons are lining up for hits of filtered, flavored, $10-a-pop O2. Talk about rarefied air. "After a while," says a deep-breathing Michael Totin, from Essex, "it's euphoric."

MOST PARENTS would say the only mold in a school should be the green-black furry stuff growing in petri dishes. But the combination of aging school buildings and exceptionally wet weather has created a bumper crop of fungi in a number of Harford and Baltimore county schools. Concerns about this mold should not be dismissed as hysterical overreaction. In large quantities, common molds like clasporidium and penicillium can trigger allergic reactions, sinus infections, headaches, coughing and irritation of the eyes and throat.

The change in weather since Monday has helped restore energy and good cheer during this breathless month of activity.   As I said in my print column for The Baltimore Messenger , June rivals December as the busiest month of the year. As we hit mid-month, I’ve decided it’s worse.   December is mostly holiday related activities: parties, school progams, concerts, shopping, gift-giving. June is full of major life events: graduations, graduations and more graduations in this school-dense area of the city, plus weddings and home moves.

Is it too early to print playoff tickets? What, am I rushing things? A 3-0 record and first place in the American League East doesn't automatically get you into the postseason? OK, fine. Maybe the Orioles should wait a few more days. Maybe they should wait to see what happens in this three-game series against the Detroit Tigers that begins with Monday's home opener at Camden Yards. But remember how the Orioles started last season? Remember 2-16? And 9-24? Remember closer Michael Gonzalez blowing the save in the season opener to get the horror show started, then doing it again in the home opener and getting booed off the mound?
