The missing Mr. Rubio

Your coverage of President Obama's speech was interesting. There was lots of praise from the state's Democrats and only a short comment from our lone Republican congressman ("Obama outlines ambitious agenda for second term," Feb. 13).

My paper, however, must have been missing a page because I was unable to find any mention of the Republican response ("Rubio calls for Medicare changes, balanced-budget amendment," Feb. 13).

Did it not happen, or are you just intentionally ignoring Mr. Rubio?

      Hogan wrong to block smog rules

      Gov. Larry Hogan wants "better communities ... and better lives," for us and "our children and our children's children."
