The date - Sept. 6, 1995 - had been circled on calendars, not just in Baltimore, but throughout the country. The countdown for the Orioles' Cal Ripken Jr. to break Lou Gehrig's consecutive-games record had gone on for months. And yet, if I had any idea of what was about to occur - the moment that would overcome the ballpark, the emotion that would transfix the nation, the hundreds of thousands of newspapers and mementos that The Sun would sell - I would have been even more nervous than I was walking into 501 N. Calvert St. that afternoon.

New ballot system defeats anonymityWhatever happened to casting an anonymous ballot? The new system in Baltimore County makes it so easy for anyone to see how an individual votes.When the lever system was in place, you could change your mind in the polling booth. Now, once you make your mark, you can't change it without obtaining another ballot.My vote is my business. I don't like a system where an elected official has the potential to see whether I voted for him or her.Mary RobbinsBaltimoreAll Americans are winnersKudos to Mike Littwin.

Diatribe against AtlantaMike Littwin's diatribe against Atlanta playing host to the 1996 Olympics was offensive. But the column said more about regional stereotypes and Littwin's ignorance than about Atlanta. Thankfully, the International Olympic Committee had better sense. I welcome the opportunity for the capital of my home state to show what a hospitable and cosmopolitan place it is. Perhaps Littwin will be among those who benefit from learning what Atlanta is really like.Richard M. SmithBaltimoreBox seat in Athens for LittwinI was saddened to read in Mike Littwin's column how disappointed he was that Atlanta was selected over Athens, Greece as the site for the 1996 Summer Olympics.

Just Isn't SoIt's unfortunate that The Sun's coverage of the recent community psychiatry conference in Baltimore was limited to E. Fuller Torrey's Oct. 13 diatribe on "controlling" individuals with mental illness.As reported by Michael Ollove, Dr. Torrey's remarks only reinforce the stereotype that people with mental illness are typically violent, when study after study and the daily experience of those working in the field say this just isn't so.If there is a defining characteristic of even the most severe and persistent mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder, it is disability and not violence.

No more Dream Team?Now that we have demonstrated that our basketball professionals are superior to anyone else's basketball professionals, perhaps, in 1996 we can return Olympic basketball to the college player.As to the assertion that he understands the arguments against the "Dream Team", Mike Littwin, in his column of Aug. 9, understands about as much as the journalists covering the gladitorial contests in the ancient Roman Coliseum. The problem now, as then, is that the roaring crowd is in delirious agreement.

Wrong Role ModelsAt the risk of being hated as a black female racist sexist, I must convey my loyalty to Baltimore City Comptroller Jacqueline McLean.I see no reason for young black females to feel disappointed or embarrassed by Ms. McLean's alleged misbehavior, as speculated by Joyce Wolpert (letter, Jan., 5).Nor do I agree with Ms. McLean's attorney, William H. Murphy Jr. (Dec. 25), and Sun columnists Mike Littwin (Dec. 22) and Michael Olesker (Dec. 23 and 30), who deny that racism is a factor in Ms. McLean's troubles.
