Your recent editorial about people wanting to leave the state attempts to hide the elephant in the room ("Maryland's unhappy residents," May 9).

It's not just that taxes are high. The bigger issue is that every month there is a new tax or quasi-tax disguised as a bag fee, speed camera or red light camera fine, and they all seem to keep going up.
