Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown for governor? Simply look at the filth on the roads of Maryland and ask, should anyone in the current administration remain? It's a disgrace! Charles Parker - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com . Please include your name and contact information.

As a businessman, I am proud to live in Maryland, a state that shows compassion, equality, fairness and intelligence in its governance. Lawmakers' recent action on gun control, marriage equality, death penalty repeal, infrastructure finance, school construction and tuition rates for undocumented immigrants make this an ideal state to call home.

Is this Maryland's best sandwich (pictured above)? It sure looks great. Food Network Magazine has proclaimed the pit beef sandwich at Pioneer Pit Beef the single must-try sandwich in Maryland. The Pit Beef sandwich joins 49 other notables in the feature "50 Sandwiches, 50 States," available on newsstands Tuesday and online at blog.foodnetwork.com . On the Pit Beef sandwich, the editors write: “'Pit beef' is Baltimore's slang for this beloved classic: sliced slow-grilled beef piled high on a soft kaiser bun.”  The sandwich is available for $5.50 at 1600 N. Rolling Road.

At the very end of your editorial on Maryland's unhappy residents you brought up a very interesting point but then failed to address it: People retire to Florida ( "Maryland's unhappy residents," May 9). They do it for two main reasons: The weather and the fact that there's no income tax on their retirement benefits. Somehow Florida manages to exist with all those seniors not paying into the system at every whim of the governor and legislature to dip into their pockets. What could Maryland do to keep them here?

Maryland was a charter member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, and most recently, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Notre Dame and Louisville have joined. It's interesting that so many schools want to join the ACC, yet Maryland is leaving 60 years of affiliation with the best conference in intercollegiate athletics ("AD optimistic about team, Big Ten move," Dec. 1). We will miss some of the greatest rivalries in college basketball with Duke and North Carolina, the competitiveness of ACC lacrosse and the camaraderie with the other outstanding ACC schools.

A recent letter to The Sun reported that the Mercatus Center at George Mason University ranked Maryland near the bottom in overall freedom and cited a statistic that the state has lost population ("The 'Free State' isn't so free anymore," April 3). Nonsense. Maryland's population grew by just under 45,000 people between July 1, 2011 and July 1, 2012 according to estimates just released by the U.S. Census Bureau. Maryland's total gain was ranked 13th among the 50 states and the District of Columbia, while its .8 percent increase exceeded the national rate of increase.

Proponents of fracking assured New York crowds at a recent rally that they won't be drilling where they're not wanted. What they really meant is where nobody will see them. Just look at what they did in Ohio and Pennsylvania. I can't imagine they were welcomed with open arms in those states. Now it looks like fracking may come to Maryland. We'll get about three years' worth, then find ourselves back in the same predicament we are in now. It's time to think outside the box. There are plenty of other natural, renewable solutions to our energy problems.

As a retiree who held his first job at age 11 and who worked and paid into Social Security for 50 years and into Medicare since it's inception, that obnoxious diatribe by William Smith is an affront to retirees everywhere ( "Who needs those lazy retirees?" Aug. 19). The generalization that retirees are takers and welfare addicts is ridiculous. Perhaps he is speaking for himself. I went to night school for 17 years and earned four degrees while raising a family and trying to create a self-sufficient retirement.

I commend Professor George La Noue for his careful and comprehensive analysis of the recent judicial decision concerning Maryland's historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) ( "Antiquated ruling on desegregation," Oct. 27). I concur in his observations and would like to add a couple of comments. When I came to Maryland almost a quarter century ago to join the University System of Maryland, I became engaged in a fascinating historical process. Wikipedia lists 106 HBCUs in the United States, including two- and four-year and various specialized institutions.

Consider not only the good news, but the overarching theme that was conveyed in the recent editorial, "Building a more entrepreneurial Maryland" (Jan. 27): Those of us who are determined to make Maryland a top-notch home for starts-ups and businesses of all kinds are working together toward this goal like never before. We are determined. Clearly, our legislators and Gov. Martin O'Malley are making a concerted effort to bolster diverse job growth, while advocacy groups like the Greater Baltimore Committee and TEDCO have created forums to move the discussion forward.
