TIMES WERE DIFFERENT in Ruth U. Keeton's heyday. The political pendulum was veering leftward when she served on the Howard County Council as a representative living in west Columbia. She embodied the spirit of Columbia, with its utopian goals of inclusion and collectivism.In that snatch of time, liberals were proud of the label. And Mrs. Keeton, who died Sunday at age 78 with husband Morris at her side, was an unabashed liberal. She pushed for such causes as services for the elderly, farmland preservation, environmental protection and affordable housing; she believed that police officers and teachers should be able to live in the community they served.
