Don't tear down this Hilton

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.

    While The Baltimore Sun is helping to usher in a celebrated time of year otherwise known as summer ("Memorial Day weekend travel projected to be busiest in a decade," May 20), the next three months are also a dangerous time of year when it comes to highway safety.

    I was extremely disappointed to see that one of Gov. Larry Hogan's first acts as new governor was to cancel already approved regulations that would help clean up our state's dirtiest coal-fired power plants.
