Isn't it ironic that at the same time Baltimore Ravens players complain to their union of being worked too hard, taxpayers who financed their stadium don't have enough work? Official unemployment in the team's hometown stands at about 10 percent. Unofficially, it's probably double. The anonymous complaints would be just one more example of juvenile behavior from wealthy players if they were the ones who paid for their stadium. But they are an insult to taxpayers when year after year the Maryland Stadium Authority, charged with building and operating the stadiums for the Ravens and for the Orioles and financing convention and entertainment venues, loses millions under the guise of economic development.

Having learned of yet another electoral blow to the have-nots by the Supreme Court, I am led to imagine this: As I stand before a vast audience next to, say, Bill Gates, and we prepare to give simultaneous speeches, I notice that my "equal" fellow citizen is holding the microphone to a public address system designed for Woodstock. I, meanwhile, have only the voice God gave me. Guess who is going to be heard and who is going to get drowned out ( "Court strikes donor limits in campaigns," April 3)

Dear Tom Perkins: I'm writing to apologize. I do this on behalf of the 99 percent of us who are not multimillionaires. You, of course, are, having made a pile as a venture capitalist and co-founder of the firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. I admit, I'd have thought a guy like you had little to complain about. But that was before you wrote that tear-jerking Jan. 24 letter to The Wall Street Journal revealing the pain, the oppression, the abject sense of vulnerability and fear that go with having a net worth equal to the GNP of some developing nations.

"Who wants to be a millionaire"? Apparently Fox 45 reporter Keith Daniels does. The local newsman appeared on the program today, competing for the grand prize of $1 million. Even more surreal for Baltimore viewers, his appearance -- taped in October -- was part of By the Decade Week. Today's decade was the 70s, which resulted in Daniels and host Cedric the Entertainer dressing in leisure suits and bushy wigs. “Yes, it was me,” tweeted Daniels (@KeithDFox45), with a picture capturing the insanity.

First of all, let me tell what is not on tonight, so you can plan your viewing accordingly. While the Fox reality show, Secret Millionaire, returns for its second week, the segment featuring Baltimore's Molly Shattuck will not air until Dec. 17, according to a Fox spokesman. Executive producer Greg Goldman had told The Baltimore Sun that he thought the Shattuck episode would air this week, but viewers will just have to wait. This is the show that features millionaires going undercover to spend a week with people from less-privileged backgrounds, and them giving at least $100,000 to one of the people they meet.

I am writing to you as a supporter of Bobby Zirkin and to dispute the Dan Rodricks ' column "Maybe Bobby Zirkin should be a Republican" (March 20). I disagree for numerous reasons. The discrepancies begin with the subtitle, which mentions the "millionaire's tax. " When does an income above $500,000 make someone a millionaire? I feel that this subtitle was a ploy to intrigue interest in the article, even though that statement is obviously false. Yet, this is the least of my issues.

Some Democrats in Maryland — the wealthiest state in the country, according to the U.S. Census Bureau — balk at raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour while advocating tax cuts for millionaires. It's not enough that the rich have had it sweet for three decades, accumulating wealth at obnoxiously high levels while the middle class and working poor have seen their earnings, adjusted for the cost of living, remain stagnant. It's not enough that Congress cut taxes for the wealthy, even as the nation carried out two hugely expensive and long wars.

Maryland has the most millionaires per capita (170,000, or 7.7 percent of households), but those families who make their money here don't stay here Although Florida has 31 percent fewer millionaires living in the state (per capita) than Maryland, there are 94 percent more millionaires dying there. Closer to home, Virginia has 13 percent fewer living millionaires than we do, but it has 13 percent more dying millionaires. One reason that might explain the discrepancy: Maryland has the highest estate and inheritance taxes in the country.

It seems the only way to become a millionaire nowadays is to get in on the ground floor of a dot.com, answer trivia questions from a game-show host, or out-connive your island mates to claim a seven-figure prize. Of course, that's not true. Many financial advisers say most of their millionaire clients still tend to be those who earned wealth the old-fashioned, some might say boring, way: They regularly invested, sometimes small amounts of money, in the stock market over many years and lived below their means.

In the great pile of email that arrived after last Sunday's column on millionaires who whine about "class warfare," there were numerous defenses of wealthy "job creators like Mitt Romney," and an equal number of attacks on "liberals like President Obama" who believe the rich should start paying more in income taxes again. Beachterp — that's his email handle (he did not provide his full name when asked) — made a number of assertions about millionaires, including Maryland's, and the unfairness of asking them to contribute more of their earnings to the public treasuries.
