Councilman Grasso's rants make him a bully

The truth is that the only thing worse than a Republican is a Republican bully with an obvious anger issue. The reference is to Anne Arundel County Councilman John Grasso, who took some joy in berating some of the voters at North County High School who stood in line on Election Day ("Arundel councilman said to bully early voters," Nov. 14).

Mr. Grasso, with all due respect, keep in mind that we live in a civilized society where juvenile behavior like yours is simply not acceptable.

It may work in a third-world country devoid of decorum and rife with chaos, but not here. The Maryland Republican party, with nary a detectable heartbeat in this state, needed your churlish rants like a malamute needs snow mittens.

    Let's see if I get this picture ("Hogan questions the O'Malleys' purchase of mansion furniture," Sept. 1). Our top elected state official lives in a fine government mansion which should have the best of furnishings. I do not disagree with this. The governor should live in a nice home.
