Cohen is lucky in defeat [Letter]

I am thankful this holiday season that former Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen was able to find employment so soon after being voted out of office ("Annapolis' former mayor Cohen takes job with state," Dec. 9).

With so many Marylanders unable to find work, not to mention those who have given up looking, Mr. Cohen was able to land a cushy $112,000 a year position with the Maryland Department of General Services. Isn't he lucky that such a position happened to be available just when he was looking? What a country we live in!

C.D. Wilmer
