Indecisiveness and timidity sometimes have been perceived as attributes of Baltimore's business community. Neither is present in the Greater Baltimore Committee's endorsement of the Linowes commission's extensive tax restructuring. By taking a strong stand in support of this explosive political proposal, the 1,000-member business organization has become a leader in efforts to bring about much-needed tax reform in Maryland.The GBC report is more than a city booster group's parochial view. True, it concentrates on ways to make the city stronger.

Hutchinson's departure from the presidency of the Greater Baltimore Committee as providing an opportunity to at least talk about combining the GBC with the Greater Baltimore Alliance and the Downtown Partnership.

Baltimore City certainly did show off its best with this week's Star-Spangled Spectacular to residents and tourists ( "A spectacular weekend for Baltimore," Sept. 15). We were thrilled to see so many people lining the Inner Harbor promenade to enjoy tours of the visiting ships, watch the fireworks and dine at our local restaurants. And now the city prepares for Baltimore Book Festival, which moves to the Inner Harbor for the first time ever. Looks like the Orioles aren't the only ones on a winning streak, despite some recent setbacks.
