Time to eliminate Snowden's job

Now I understand what prompted Carl O. Snowden's three arrests for driving under the influence: emotional trauma ("City police detail marijuana arrest of Md. civil rights official Snowden," April 24). Yes, Maryland's esteemed and first director of the Office of Civil Rights in the Maryland State Attorney General's Office needs a drink to deal with the pain. Truly a sympathetic figure.

I think the state would be well served in this era of austerity by eliminating Mr. Snowden's position following what we are assured to be his windfall payment from his lawsuit against Anne Arundel County.
