Sun conveniently omits Pelosi's misdeeds

Apparently all the " talking back" I've done in past years has been of little consequence. Could The Sun be any more obvious in their partisan reporting of insider trading perpetrated by members of Congress ("Keeping Congress clean," Nov. 28)? The Sun mentioned one congressman, Republican Rep. Spencer Bachus, as benefiting from insider information and noted that he "pocketed a tidy $5,000 profit" when he sold his options. Well, thanks, Sun, for the best laugh of the day.

You conveniently "forgot" to mention any Democrats, and especially former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who apparently garnered many, many more dollars than Mr. Bachus did from insider trading. Of course The Sun couldn't be bothered to report that little tidbit.

The constant, deliberate omissions of any Democrats' misdeeds are blatantly unfair and are becoming tiresome at best. Clean up your act, Sun, or at least change the name of this rag to something more appropriate. I don't know, something like, "The Maryland Democratic Sun" should do it!

    Will Rodricks open his house to the poor?

    In response to Dan Rodricks' proposal that our legislators support the leftist "Moving to Opportunity" agenda where the poor are moved to better neighborhoods through rent-subsidy vouchers, I have a better idea ("Time for leaders to do right thing for Baltimore's poorest kids," May 23).
