Water Taxi deserves access to city pier at Fort McHenry Tom Pelton's article "Water Taxi takes jitney route" (May 30) criticizes Ed Kane's Water Taxi for using a jitney to get tourists to Fort McHenry. But, in fact, Mr. Kane does advertise "Land and Sea" tours. The problem lies with former Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke's decision to grant the Living Classrooms Foundation a 10-year lease for $1 a year on the pier at Fort McHenry, forcing Mr. Kane to look elsewhere. To add insult to injury, the foundation wants to charge Mr. Kane $1 per person to dock at the fort.
