Years ago, I remember thinking that former Gov. Parris Glendenning was wrong to cut taxes because the surplus wasn't really there to sustain our state into the future. Pay now or pay later, but it always costs more to play catch-up by paying later. It turns we should not have cut taxes after all. In the best-case scenario it only costs more money, while in the worst case bridges collapse, cars are damaged on poorly maintained roads and health care, education and environmental protection are all underfunded.

To the book of absurd statements from government, including the Reagan-era pronouncements that "trees kill" and ketchup is a vegetable, add this one from Parris Glendening: "You are causing a traffic obstacle driving 55 [mph]."Come again? Is this the governor-elect speaking, or Bubba Glendening? All those motorists driving 55 are just impeding the progress of their neighbors trying to get by at 75? What's next? Arresting folks caught in drug war shootouts for getting in the way of the bullets?

It happens to many a rookie. Promoted to the big leagues, unfamiliar with the players, called upon to assume responsibilities that dwarf prior assignments, the rookie stumbles and performs below expectations. Gov. Parris N. Glendening is in just such a slump.He's been in office 60 days. Yet he has won few friends in the legislature, lost some major battles, expended huge amounts of personal capital to win approval of minor cabinet appointments and made some bad patronage picks.Except for business development issues, things are not going Mr. Glendening's way. His staff lacks political savvy in dealing with the 188 senators and delegates.

State Sen. Jim Rosapepe should be applauded for his statement on transportation funding ("Put transportation in voters' hands," April 11). Identifying funding streams for transportation investments is a national political debate. Many understand the extraordinary need to invest in rebuilding our transportation infrastructure, but no one has taken the initiative to Senator Rosapepe's level. It will take a great amount of political courage to achieve his vision. Three thoughts came to mind in response to his column.

Your front-page analysis of the recent federal court decision striking down Maryland's "right to carry" handgun law conveys the misimpression that the law is ill-conceived and too "restrictive" ("Gun ruling likely to be upheld, say legal experts," March 7). Nothing could be further from the truth. The handgun permit law has served Marylanders well for 40 years, and has survived a number of earlier challenges in the Maryland courts. Even your article concedes that only 5 percent of last year's applicants were denied for lacking a "good and substantial reason" for wanting a permit.
