Olszewski: Dumber with age?

Baltimore County Councilman John Olszewski Sr. insults voters ("Councilman didn't disclose jobs," May 19). Did he think he was smarter than everyone else?

After holding office for 15 years, he suddenly forgot how to fill out a financial disclosure form? This is another reason for term limits because the longer politicians hold office, the dumber they become.

    I've been a reader of Susan Reimer's column for more years than I care to remember.
