The proposal offered by letter writer Steve English to tear down the Baltimore Hilton has to be the dumbest idea going ("Orioles fans can finance Hilton tear-down," July 2). I am an Orioles fan and don't care about the view of the skyline at Camden Yards. Steve, do you go to the game to look at the skyline or watch the game? I watch the game.
Others can go sit on Federal Hill and look at the skyline and save money on Orioles tickets. Why should we contribute to tearing down Gov. Martin O'Malley's white elephant that should not have been built to begin with? If money is going to be contributed, let's give to a food shelter, a church or more police on the streets but not to tearing down a mistake the city made. This Orioles fan votes one against tearing down the hotel.
