The 'spin' isn't the story [Letter]

Maryland ranked third in a recent Gallup poll with residents who would "prefer" to leave the state in which they reside if they were able to do so. Naturally The Sun put its own spin on that very clear finding ("Maryland's unhappy residents," May 9).

Even your own Dan Rodricks, in a recent column written after months of living in denial, admitted that a lot of retired millionaires are leaving Maryland because of its onerous tax policies.

They may be joined by a whole new group of individuals who want to read a daily newspaper that is dedicated to uphold the once proud tradition of journalism and never obfuscates the news to fit its political agenda.

Admittedly, it will be a lot easier to find a state with much lower taxes.

Joseph Johnson, Timonium
