Maryland Zoo's new lioness a star attraction

I was utterly thrilled by your story about the new animals arriving at the zoo ("Maryland Zoo welcomes new lioness, giraffe," Dec. 3). However, I wish there had been as much in the article about the lioness, such as her age and weight, as there was about the giraffe.

For a while, I have been going to the National Zoo in Washington because I felt that the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore was not doing anything new. it was the same-old, same-old that I've seen since I was little.

However, with the new animals arriving I will be going to the Maryland Zoo once more. Thank you for piquing my interest in my local zoo again.

      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."

      I read with interest Ann C. Kehinde's letter ("Timing of Jackson-Lee event just coincidence?" Jan. 22). The idea of which came first, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday or the Jackson-Lee commemoration, is really a specious argument. Both Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson...

      Thanks to The Sun for all those who wrote so many kind perspectives on Larry Hogan, our new governor ("Hogan pledges culture of 'tolerance and mutual respect' in Annapolis," Jan. 21).

      Gov. Larry Hogan campaigned on a pledge to reduce the budget, but the impact may be disproportionately felt by the most vulnerable: small businesses, people on fixed or limited incomes and children ("Hogan budget would cut state worker pay, city school aid," Jan. 22).

      It is particularly disappointing that outgoing Maryland Transportation Secretary James T. Smith Jr.'s pro-Red Line commentary ignored the most basic facts about this massive and expensive project ("Why should we pursue the Red Line?" Jan. 21). Let's look at each of Mr. Smith's points and see...
