Austin William Smith, a former Maryland Toll Facilities official and decorated World War II veteran, died of a heart attack Monday at his Severna Park home. He was 88. Born in Cullman, Ala., he served in the Army for 20 years and fought in the Battle of the Bulge during World War II. He earned a Bronze Star "for heroic achievement in military action" during fighting in January 1945 in Belgium. While on duty in Italy after the war, he met his future wife, Ester Franceschini. They married in Gorizia in the province of Venetia Julia in 1949.

William Smith writes that Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s column concerning the Republican Party being the champion of small business is a fantasy and sets forth his own storyline that he alleges to have a "ring of truth to it" ( "Ehrlich's small business rhetoric rings hollow," May 13). Normally, I would dismiss such cliché riddled rants for what they are worth. However, the truly disturbing part of his letter is that Mr. Smith unfortunately depicts the predominant thinking found in our colleges and universities, the national media, and the leadership of the Democratic Party.

Despite all the opinions I have read recently, I was still stunned by the anti-marijuana-legalization screed in your paper arguing we should continue marijuana prohibition because alcohol prohibition was so successful ("Supporters of marijuana legalization misread history," March 11). Say what? Do the editors even read the stuff your op-ed writers send in before you publish it? Because I can't think of one other person who has ever argued that Prohibition was a success. And I'm not talking about starry eyed liberals.

I always have a good laugh when you run your "Red Maryland" column, and the most recent exercise in pointless drivel was no exception ( "To help children, start in the womb," Jan. 31). First of all, just to state a simple yet obvious fact that seems to elude some people: an embryo is not a person and no amount of wishing it is so will make it true. A baby is born when it draws its first breath. In fact, the Bible (which these right wing ignoramuses always reference, but none of them seems to bother to read or understand)

It was sad to see formerly respected Dr. Ben Carson go on television and so thoroughly destroy any credibility he had as a person ("Dr. Ben Carson apologizes, offers to withdraw from Hopkins speech" Mar 29). But it seems to shame and dishonor is a common path followed by so many "conservatives. " Oh well, at least we'll have fond memories of the man - sort of. Now that it looks like his tenure as someone to take seriously is over, maybe he should team up with Sheila Dixon.

The absence of cornerback Lardarius Webb will hurt this team more than inside linebacker Ray Lewis not being in the lineup. Webb was playing extremely well and had forced other teams to stay away from him. He pretty much had shut down one quarter of the field. Without him, teams will start attacking the entire field again. Cornerbacks Cary Williams and Jimmy Smith have shown improvement in the last two games, but opposing teams weren't throwing at them. When you can run for more than 200 yards a game, why throw?

It's good to see that U.S. Sen. John McCainis still just as clueless as he was four years ago, but I'm sure the Chinese were not as amused as I was by his warnings that the "Arab Spring" was coming soon to China. It's too bad they didn't point out to Senator McCain that the "Arab Spring" has already come to America, under the banner of the Occupy Wall Street movement. I'm sure the senator would have found their remarks just as amusing as they found his. William Smith, Baltimore
