I enjoyed your Baltimore Power Rankings column (Nov. 12), but was surprised that, in the blurb on Larry Hogan, the rain tax was called out as not being a tax. Of course it is not on rain, but impervious surface. I'm not sure what you think it is, a fee? I suppose it could be for homeowners in the city, since it seems to be flat, but elsewhere it is based on lot size or, for commercial property, impervious area. Never mind that your own paper called it a tax ("Stormy Monday," Mobtown Beat, June 4).
