Daniel Patrick Moynihan said famously that everyone is entitled to their own opinions but not their own facts. Such is the case with Brian Griffiths' "City mayors don't focus on city" (Feb. 20), which expresses a range of opinions without any supporting evidence. Mr. Griffiths covers the period between 2000 and today, spanning three mayoral administrations. Yes, Baltimore is far from perfect - too many are without jobs, our city has too much violence, and the scourge of drug addiction destroys too many lives - but living in Baltimore is objectively better today than in 2000.

You cannot begin to imagine how disappointed I was to see former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon not only included in The Sun Magazine special edition "50 Women to Watch," but listed as number eight! Perhaps you might have included her as No. 51 with the caveat that she is a "woman to watch (out for)" following her 2009 conviction of embezzlement for stealing gift cards intended for poor residents! "A misdemeanor conviction" - really ! And, following her conviction she barely avoided prosecution in 2012 on charges of probation violation.

I eagerly sat down to read The Sun magazine feature on Baltimore women leaders ("50 women to watch in Baltimore," July 22). So imagine my disappointment when I got to No. 8 and saw former mayor Sheila Dixon's name on the list. Actually, disappointment is too tame of word to describe my reaction. To see her profiled amid pillars of the community - women of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and in varied careers - was a disgrace. Ms. Dixon had no place being in the same report with those women and their achievements.

I agree with the Sun Magazine 's view that former Baltimore City Mayor Sheila Dixon is a woman who should be watched - watched like a hawk ( "50 women to watch in Baltimore," July 22). Douglas Kaplan, Baltimore

Sheila Dixon would be more credible if she was competing for ratings with Honey Boo-Boo or The Real Housewives of whatever. Is Baltimore so desperate for national attention that someone of her ilk has to be trotted out once again to run for mayor ("Dixon plans decision on return to politics," March 27)? Should Ms. Dixon be somehow re-elected to office, it will at least keep furriers and makers of Jimmy Choo shoes busy. B. Mobley, Gwynn Oak

Former Mayor Sheila Dixon's city pension deal rankled many in 2010 - even sparking a small protest outside City Hall - but she did not get a free pass after being found guilty of embezzlement and perjury charges. To keep her $83,000 a year payout, Dixon had to donate $45,000 to charity, do 500 hours of community service and not seek office. Last week, Dixon was charged with a probation violation after falling almost $14,000 behind on the required payments, according to state records.

Sheila, Sheila, Sheila ... Girlfriend? You are making us look bad. Ms. Dixon, who resigned as mayor of Baltimore in a plea deal that required her to make $45,000 in donations to charity, is behind - way behind - in her payments, and she's in danger of a probation violation that could cost her a $83,000-a-year pension and perhaps even send her to jail. That would pretty much scuttle her undisguised ambition to return to City Hall. If it is true that a woman has to be twice as good as a man to succeed, it is also true that she has to be twice as clean, and Ms. Dixon was anything but. She was convicted of pocketing $500 in gift cards intended for the poor, but that's hardly the end of her misdeeds.

Call it the Sheila Dixon amendment. Although it was actually written in response to another corrupt Maryland politician who didn't know when to give up her hold on elective office, Question 3 on next week's ballot speaks directly to the turmoil Baltimore's gift card-stealing former mayor created in the weeks after she was found guilty in 2009. After years of scandal and a lengthy trial on theft and other misconduct charges, Ms. Dixon was found guilty by a jury of her peers in early December of that year.

The purloined gift cards. The fur coats. The bicycling tours of the city with staffers.  And, of course, the famous shoe incident. Former mayor Sheila Dixon's tenure in City Hall is ripe with material for comedians.  On Thursday, seven comics and local media personalities will be poking fun of  Dixon -- to her face-- at a "Roast and Toast" at the Baltimore Comedy Factory. Why would Dixon, who resigned in 2010 as part of a plea deal to settle criminal charges, agree to a such a thing?

A majority of Baltimore's most engaged Democrats approve of how Sheila Dixon handled her job as mayor. But they're not keen for a comeback. Dixon, who is barred from running for office this year as part of a plea deal to settle corruption charges, has said she might campaign for mayor in 2015. But while 53 percent of respondents to the Sun Poll said they approve of her work for the city from 2007 to 2010, 54 percent said they would not consider voting her back into the office.
