Jamie Smith Hopkins' recent article on BGE's rate hikes prompts three responses ("Public Service Commission approves BGE rate increases," Feb. 23):

First, BGE continues to rip off its customers, as has been its practice for the last 20 years.

Second, the Public Service Commission should be abolished because it's been nothing but a puppet for the current governor as well as his predecessors.

And third, the General Assembly continues to pander to BGE. All this is a pretty sad commentary on our current state of affairs.
