Has there ever been more mud-slinging than in this year's Maryland governor's race? It has made me sick enough to agonize over how I can vote. I've decided to take the write-in option. I never do that, but I feel driven to it this time. I am going to write in the name Heather Mizeur. I recall how well she did in the debates, particularly in response to her environmental positions. She did not equivocate. She said, "I oppose fracking in the state of Maryland. " I'm going down fighting for her.

Books -- about the War of 1812, the Chesapeake Bay and other topics -- were popular gifts to Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley last year, according to his financial disclosure forms. He received nearly 90 books during the year, The Baltimore Sun's political reporters found in checking the forms. And it's fitting for Maryland's key role in the War of 1812 that O'Malley received not one, but two copies of " 1812: The Navy's War" by Georges Daughan....

Bullet point opinions on the topical issues of the day, for your consideration: •Regarding America's present war footing, our military brass are saying what common sense would dictate: It's gonna be really difficult to defeat (rather than contain) ISIS without professional soldiers ultimately doing the dirty work on the ground.

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown claimed victory in the Democratic nomination for governor Tuesday after early returns suggested a landslide win. "It's about where we're going. It's about what next," Brown said in a victory speech as he led with three times as many votes as his closest competitor. He is positioned to become Maryland's first African-American chief executive. In the Republican race, former Ehrlich administration official Larry Hogan accepted the GOP nomination after Harford County Executive David R. Craig, conceded defeat.

The first negative advertisements in the Democratic primary campaign for governor hit airwaves this week, pushing a feisty political fight that's simmered for months into prime time. Already, the race among Democrats for the governor's mansion is poised to be Maryland's nastiest in two decades, experts said. And voters can expect the candidates with enough money to use it increasingly on negative messages until the June 24 primary. "It's a surprise that it didn't happen earlier," said Donald F. Norris, chairman of the public policy department at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Maryland voters might not be ready, but six candidates with their eye on the governor's mansion are poised to start running in earnest - touring the state, signing up volunteers and raising millions of dollars for a spirited race. Candidates from both parties say they plan to start selling their ideas this fall, more than a year before the November 2014 general election and months earlier than past gubernatorial contests. "We're moving into this phase when the policy and platforms are being rolled out," said Thomas Schaller, a political science professor at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

When Democrat Douglas F. Gansler stopped by a Baltimore sports bar recently, the ex-convict behind the bar struck up a conversation. It's a tough road, the worker told Gansler, to get any job. "I'm trying to turn my life around," he said. "I've got a newborn son. " Gansler nodded emphatically, and dove into the wonky details of a seemingly unconventional plank in a former prosecutor's platform for governor. Gansler, like all the Democrats vying for the state's top political job, has a detailed plan to ensure ex-offenders do not go back to prison.

Carolyn Quattrocki may not be well known to most Marylanders, but she is a longtime Annapolis insider. So it's not surprising that the former special assistant to then-Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr. and former deputy legislative officer under Gov. Martin O'Malley was chosen by the governor to lead the state's health reform efforts. As executive director of the Governor's Office of Health Care Reform, Quattrocki is overseeing the state's health reform efforts. Consumers can begin buying insurance on an exchange in October in time for the rollout of reform in January.

Martin O'Malley is expected to be elected chairman of the Democratic Governors Association in Washington on Wednesday, a position that would give him a turn in the national spotlight. As chairman, O'Malley could fatten his list of donors with names from other states, deepen relationships with a network of emerging Democratic leaders and recruit new faces to the party. It would also afford an opportunity to install loyal staffers in key national positions. The position proved a stepping-stone for former President Bill Clinton, current Health Secretary Kathleen Sibelius and current Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, among others.

One of the things that delights me in the people I love is their differences.  Each of my beloved family members behaved differently in life, so naturally each of them chose to die in their own way.  My dad, Alex Fraser, wanted control over the time and place of his death.  As his Parkinson's worsened, sometime after his 90 t h birthday, he decided to take action.  His health had been declining for some time, his tremor made it hard...

Candidates for Maryland governor unleashed dueling attack ads Monday, heightening a negative contest that has been marked by name-calling and hostility. Republican Larry Hogan's ad plays off an attack Democrat Anthony G. Brown has already lobbed against him: the opponent would take the state "backwards. " Hogan's 40-second ad highlights the pocketbook issues that he has made the centerpiece of his campaign and charged that the O'Malley-Brown administration was responsible for the economic recession.

Dear Diary: Looks as though our folks must finally come clean on Benghazi. In my defense, the attack on our consulate occurred in the middle of my re-election campaign. Mitt Romney and the Republicans were banging me pretty good about foreign policy failures - particularly our new "leading from behind" strategy in dealing with the world's trouble spots. They seemed to forget I was elected on a platform to bring the boys and girls home, regardless of consequences! To make matters worse, Mr. Romney and his cowboy allies were alleging a retreat in the war on terror … er, our "overseas contingency operations.

Gov. Martin O'Malley, a presidential hopeful, has taken on yet another "pop issue," proposing that we provide foster care to several thousand unaccompanied Central American minors, lest they be sent to "certain death. " He has also championed abolition of capital punishment and the establishment of gay marriage, the Dream Act, and tax credits and fueling stations for electric vehicles whose technology is not ready for prime time. Is this latest pronouncement that of an instinctive demagogue or of a thoughtful statesman?

News from the future: •President Elizabeth Warren welcomed the 10 millionth underage child to illegally immigrate to the U.S. and immediately offered each of them and their children free tuition at the university of their choosing. The president explained that such tuition "assistance" represented reparations for America's racist, imperialist past. Interestingly, the Warren administration exempted the children from Obamacare coverage, explaining that new arrivals had a right to higher quality health care than where they came from.

Within hours of the Supreme Court's decision last week that closely-held corporations could deny coverage for contraceptives through their employees' health insurance policies if doing so violated the owners' religious convictions, Gov. Martin O'Malley took to Twitter to decry the verdict: "No woman should have her health care decisions made by her boss. Period. This decision is wrong and a setback for women's health. " Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, who is running to replace his term-limited boss, wasn't far behind with his own statement: "No one has the right to dictate personal health care decisions to a woman, certainly not her employer.
