Mayor's rivals can be judged by company they keep

How interesting to read that Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's challengers are actually seeking advice from Sheila Dixon, a disgraced mayor who was charged with perjury, theft, fraudulent misappropriation and misconduct, and ultimately convicted of embezzlement ("Dixon at work behind the scenes," July 13).

The Sun deserves thanks for making the next Baltimore mayoral election a no-brainer.
