Well, Comrade Gov. Martin O'Malley has literally deluged Maryland taxpayers with new taxes, fees, licenses and tolls ("Marylanders' wallets run on empty," July 2). The People's Republic of Maryland now taxes the rain that falls on your home. The "in the bag" liberal socialist media, refuses to condemn such action even while this nation is in the midst of a depression, not a recession, but a real depression! It is not only the jobs that will be lost, as more and more businesses and industries "vote with their feet" to leave this socialist Garden of Eden, no, it is more than that.

Dreary job reports coupled with the news that Maryland is projecting $405 million in less revenue for the current fiscal year and the next has caused the O'Malley/Brown cheerleaders at The Sun to put on the pompoms and go into full attack mode ( "Apocalypse? Not now," Sept. 26). Various explanations are offered either in articles or editorials rationalizing the inability to eliminate the proclaimed structural deficit, including: the sequestration, federal budget cuts, lots of other states have the same problem, the dog ate the homework, etc. Missing in the analysis of The Sun is the one explanation that is right before everyone's eyes: Maryland is spending too much money.

Speaking as a veteran who served for eight years as a Naval Reserve Officer, five in World War II and three more during the Korean Conflict, it was with tears in my eyes that I read The Sun's article, "VA falls short on helping veterans," (Jan. 27) as I sadly realized that I could have just as easily been a member of this group. In order to lend a helping hand to this national endeavor, a couple of years ago I signed up with the Wounded Warriors Project whose headquarters is located in Topeka, Kansas in order to make a monthly contribution to this worthy cause.

The call for the wild is being heard again across Maryland — though not everyone welcomes it. More than a decade after the last addition to the state's network of wildlands, Department of Natural Resources officials have proposed a major expansion of the legally protected wilderness areas, including a section of northwestern Baltimore County. They want to preserve from development, cars and even bicycles those spots that still harbor rare plants and animals, ancient trees and other remnants of what Maryland looked like before European settlers arrived nearly 400 years ago. "These are the last great places of Maryland," said John F. Wilson, who is coordinating the agency effort to name additional wildlands.

Gilman senior Kenneth Goins committed Monday afternoon to play football for Maryland. Goins, 5-foot-11, 210 pounds, doubled as a running back and a defensive end for the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion and No. 1 Greyhounds, but he will be a running back for the Terrapins. He scored a touchdown in the 34-32 double-overtime win against No. 2 Calvert Hall for the Greyhounds' 10 th A Conference title. An All-Metro defensive end last season, Goins chose the Terps from among a final three that included Syracuse and Tulane.

My congratulations on your Sunday article ("Small towns, big love") about some of Maryland's small towns. It was a great article! I would hope you would follow it up with a whole series of articles about Maryland towns. The series could contain a brief summary about the town, followed by a minimum of several paragraphs and photos about each town. I believe this would stir interest in nearby travel locations, fun and inexpensive trips, and increase knowledge about our state. It might even sell more papers!
