On behalf of the Maryland Board of Pharmacy, we are writing to commend Sun reporter Andrea Walker for a fair and honest reflection of information discussed during her interview with board executive director LaVerne Naesea and board commissioner David Chason about the board's monitoring of sterile compounding pharmacies and addressing potential gaps in oversight. The article's on-line headline, "Maryland pharmacy of board says it can adequately monitor compounding pharmacies - Board beefed up standards in recent years" (Nov.

Rick Santorum's assertion that President Barack Obama's agenda is not about the quality of life or jobs but "some phony ideal. Some phony theology" may not be an appropriate characterization of his religious views. However, it is an accurate description of what is wrong with the hard left in American politics - and the thinking that drives domestic policy in the Obama administration. Too often liberal policies are based more on faith than reason - they are often premised on assertions having little foundation in facts or modern economics.

DeJuliis positions mischaracterizedI appreciate The Sun's endorsement of my candidacy in the Second District, in your Feb. 27 editorial. However, in your effort to reduce the campaign to simple tit-for-tat sound-bites, you have seriously mischaracterized my positions.To suggest that I am "decidedly . . . pro-gun control'' completely ignores my record and my positions. I recognize that responsible ownership and use of guns for hunting, targeting practice, self-defense and other lawful activities is constitutionally protected.

While Steven Salzberg's readers-response letter may accurately reflect his point of view ("Sun gives voice to dangerous anti-vaccination fear-mongering," July 13), he significantly mischaracterizes important aspects of my July 11th op-ed, "We don't know enough about childhood vaccines. " The main point of my op-ed is a simple fact, a number. The federal government recommends 36 doses of vaccines for every child during the first two years of life. And then I ask: Is this too many, too few or just right?

The Sun once again pulls out all the stops from its lofty editorial perch to totally mischaracterize issues with Sheppard Pratt locating a half-way house in Ruxton ( "Discrimination in Ruxton," April 25). In the process, it also fails to address the very essence of the story. Shame on Sheppard Pratt for the way the half-way house plan was presented to the community. They claim to be part of the community, but they came in without prior dialogue with the community and told us that the deal is fait accompli, irrespective of the community's feelings.

I represent Mahmood Karzai, and I'm writing about a September 28, 2010, Baltimore Sun article, "Karzai brother reportedly is targeted in U.S. probe. " In that article, The Sun discussed Mr. Karzai's Maryland home, investment properties and several previous restaurants in the Baltimore area. According to the article, a local real estate broker, Kemp Byrnes, sued Mr. Karzai claiming he "reneged on a deal to sell two parcels in the city's Mount Vernon neighborhood as planned. " Mr. Byrnes was then quoted about how "disappointed" he was. It's a shame that with a pending arbitration approaching, The Sun would present only Mr. Brynes' biased and wrong version of the events.

In a February 7 article ("A likely record, but experts will get back to us") Frank Roylance wrote: "The contractor paid to make snow measurements at BWI for the weather service (the NWS has none of its own personnel there) evidently failed to follow NWS protocols in measuring the snow. Those rules say the observer must allow snow to fall on an official 'snow board' for six hours, then wipe it clear and repeat the procedure every six hours until the snow ends." This statement is inaccurate and misleading in that it gives the impression that the weather observers (contractors)

Mike Miller mounted an aggressive defense of his comments to judges of the state's highest court yesterday, contending that Republican leaders filed a complaint alleging professional misconduct for "purely political purposes."
