In reference to Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler's commentary on gun violence in Maryland ("Keep the focus on handguns in Md.," Jan. 14), I must say he needs to look and it in a very different way. Most law-abiding citizens will not go out after dark in most areas of Baltimore for fear of losing their lives. I have lived in the city for over 30 years and crime has not gotten any better nor has the ability for those of us who obey the law to defend ourselves and property against the thugs and criminals who roam the streets.

Congratulations to Mr. Gansler and the other parents for providing a safe environment for their transition to adulthood.

Seems to me it made front page news just to get at Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler ("Gansler says breaking up teen party was not his job," Oct. 24). If you wanted to take a moral stand, why didn't you expose the two parents who were there as chaperons and the other parents who agreed and contributed to the arrangements? Marie Mullen, Joppa

Democrat Anthony G. Brown took the stage at a Democratic unity event Thursday night and planted a kiss squarely on his former political rival, Del. Heather Mizeur. It was, after all, a “kiss and make up” party to mend the wounds from the long and acrimonious Democratic primary, which ended in Brown's landslide victory Tuesday night. The candidates who had the most making up to do, however, never shared the stage. Mizeur ran zero negative ads and made a point to stay positive throughout the campaign and debates.

With the primary a week away, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Douglas F. Gansler has made what his campaign calls his “closing argument” in two new television ads.
