George Fisher, a Baltimore businessman and yachting enthusiast, died of a heart attack Thursday at Northwest Hospital Center. The Mount Washington resident was 93. Mr. Fisher was born in Baltimore to Russian immigrants and raised near Lombard and High streets. "In a 1999 family video, he said he was named George because his father thought this was `the greatest country in the world, and he revered George Washington,'" said his daughter, Barbara Fisher Steinke of Mount Washington. He worked in his family's Chester Street grocery store while attending school, and graduated in 1928 from City College.

But letter writer George Fisher provided the missing piece of this puzzle in three words: "With God's help" ("Culture must change," July 10). Somewhere in the Bible it says that a nation that forgets God will be forgotten by God. In the 1960s, mention of God was removed from public schools, where before a few lines from the Psalms had been read every day after the Pledge of Allegiance.
