The Sun's endorsement of Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown in the Democratic gubernatorial primary elicits major concerns among the students of the Ralph Jaffe for governor movement to get rid of corruption in Maryland politics ( "Brown for governor," June 14). You minimized Mr. Brown's role in the disastrous health insurance exchange launch and even passed the buck to Gov. Martin O'Malley. What is most alarming is your assertion that Mr. Brown "inherits the legacy of his eight-year partnership with Governor O'Malley.

Rona Jaffe admits that she writes "totally light fun books" -- but she also claims that they have some "seriousness" to them."I like sociological things, writing about changes we're going through in life and relationships. I write a book when I want to know why," says the 58-year-old author, whose latest book, "An American Love Story," has just been released by Dell Paperbacks.To say Ms. Jaffe's questions have wide interest would be an understatement. Worldwide, there are 23 million copies of her 12 books in print.

Recent articles have raised concerns about the amount of money being spent by Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, State Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and Del. Heather Mizeur on their campaigns ( "Brown touts $800,000 fundraising tally," June 9). Collectively these self-centered career politicians have raised some $25 million, a large portion of which is being used in media blitzes to con voters to support them. In their book that's a wise use of money. In my book, it is not. What disturbs me is that the political beat writers continue to ignore the fact that there is another Democratic candidate in this election who refuses to play into this money game.

Rona Jaffe, 74, whose 1958 novel The Best of Everything told the melodramatic story of four young career girls torn between storybook romance and cutthroat corporate Manhattan, died of cancer Friday at University College Hospital in London, where she was on vacation. Movie producer Jerry Wald essentially commissioned Miss Jaffe, at the time a 25-year-old former associate editor in publishing, to write a book that he could turn into a blockbuster feature film. Less than a year after the book appeared, The Best of Everything was released as a chic but heavy-handed film by 20th Century Fox. Hope Lange, Diane Baker, Martha Hyer and the 1950s model Suzy Parker starred as the young women about town.

Sue Grafton knows how to start a novel with a bang. Consider the opening sentence of her 10th mystery, " 'J' is for Judgment": "On the face of it, you wouldn't think there was any connection between the murder of a dead man and the events that changed my perceptions about my life."The murder of a dead man? What could that possibly mean? Obviously, this is not going to be your run-of-the-mill detective story.In 1991's " 'H' is for Homicide," private eye Kinsey Millhone was fired from California Fidelity, the insurance company she worked for part time in exchange for office space.

Ben Jaffe pursed his lips and whistled - a short, melodious bird call of a sound. As he did, he was reminded of how much he has lost. "There are certain things that, if you aren't from New Orleans, you have no idea what they mean," says Jaffe, artistic director of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, which performs this weekend with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. "That particular whistle means, `Listen up - the song is about to start.' It doesn't mean anything to you.

I'm wondering if the letter writer who asked "Who's qualified to be Maryland's next governor? No one!" (April 6) had all of the pertinent information before coming to that conclusion. The author mentioned Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown along with the general phrase "Republican candidates. " However, there was no mention of teacher Ralph Jaffe, who is running as a Democratic candidate for governor. As a teacher and facilitator of learning in the educational realm, Mr. Jaffe believes in tailoring instruction to the needs of students, who are at the heart of the school matter.

After reading Michael Dresser 's article on campaign promises, I felt compelled as a teacher to grade his coverage of my own campaign for governor ( "Candidates make many promises - but how to pay for them?" March 14). It's absolutely amazing that The Sun has published online or in print dozens of articles about the Jaffe campaign for governor. Yet Mr. Dresser has completely ignored my candidacy. I could actually charge Mr. Dresser with journalistic malfeasance for this failure.

Your report on the rate hike recently granted to BGE clearly demonstrates the importance of abolishing the Maryland Public Service Commission ("Md. approves BGE rate increase, surcharge," Dec. 13). In theory, the commissioners are supposed to regulate BGE and protect the taxpayers. However, in practice what they do is regulate the taxpayers and protect BGE. I've also concluded we should abolish the Maryland Office of People's Counsel. The office is a ploy used by the governor and the General Assembly to give the impression they are looking out for residential utility customers.

Since the views of Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler and the other candidates for governor on closing the achievement gap ("Gansler calls for all-day preschool," Oct. 1) were discussed in your newspaper without presenting mine, I think it's only fair to let your readers know about my proposals on the topic also. As someone who has been a teacher for almost 40 years, I find Mr. Gansler's ideas to be off the mark. Here are some educational principles: Anyone who knows anything about education knows that the first seven years of a child's life are the critical years in the development of the child's personality.

A thank you goes to the Sun editorial board and to reporters Erin Cox and Michael Dresser for mentioning my name as a candidate for Maryland governor in 2014 ( "The race is on," Sept. 25). However, The Sun still falls very short from the mark. Why? Because it is being unfair to its readers in failing to inform them that Ralph Jaffe, as a teacher, is leading a movement to get rid of the corruption in Maryland politics. In the role of teacher, I use the campaigns as a teaching device to demonstrate to my students as well as all other interested citizens what has to be done to get rid of the hanky-panky in Maryland government.

Erin Cox's report on the GOP gubernatorial primary strikes out again ( "Lollar launches campaign for governor," Sept. 3). Why doesn't she get it? Ms. Cox points out that the field is widening, with several candidates - including two other Republicans and several announced Democratic candidates - all vying to replace term-limited Gov. Martin O'Malley. But again she failed to include my name. Well, here's a news flash: I am also running for governor. Why doesn't Ms. Cox read her own newspaper?

FLORENCE, Italy -- It was one of the most dumbfounding mysteries of the AIDS epidemic -- the case of the dentist who infected his patients. And a major study was launched to solve it.This week, the disease detective who heads up that investigation delivered his findings.Standing before an audience of more than 500 people at the Seventh International Conference on AIDS, Harold Jaffe, one of the most respected epidemiologists at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, had to admit defeat. He simply could not explain how the dentist had infected five patients with acquired immune-deficiency syndrome.

Ralph Jaffe wants to dethrone Gov. Martin O'Malley. And before a news conference outside O'Malley's downtown Baltimore office last month, Jaffe also wanted to use the gubernatorial throne. Security at the William Donald Schaefer state office building turned him away, suggesting that he use the bathroom at a nearby McDonald's instead. Jaffe, a 67-year-old retired teacher from Pikesville who is challenging O'Malley in the Democratic primary, filed a federal civil rights lawsuit over the matter this week.

Among the select few physicians honored with the prestigious Patients' Choice Award this year is Dr. David Jaffe, of Havre de Grace. Of the nation's 870,000 active physicians and dentists, just five percent consistently received top scores from their patients on sites like Vitals (http://www.vitals.com), qualifying them for this honor in 2012. Millions of patients go online each year to rate their doctors on various components of care, including accuracy of their diagnosis, the amount of time they spent with the doctor, and the doctor's bedside manner and follow-up care.
