Maryland is mad as a March hare

Personal Income

Well, it was a wonderful General Assembly session ("What's left for O'Malley," April 14).

No matter what kind of heinous crime you commit, you never have to fear the death penalty. There are now more restrictions on the law-abiding gun owners when it's the criminals and certain mentally ill individuals who commit these mass murders. There will be a higher gas tax which will really hurt middle- and low-income people, and last but not least, there's a rain tax!

I think instead of living in Maryland, I'm living in Wonderland.
