It was amusing to read Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's letter Sunday demonizing Republican criticism of Democratic mayors ("Mayor: GOP offers criticisms, Democrats offer solutions," Feb. 24).
Virtually every city, including Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore and the District of Columbia, has been run by Democratic politicians. These same politicians have destroyed the African-American community, housing, the work ethic and the infrastructure.
Just drive around Baltimore for a couple of hours. It is incredible how tens of thousands of perfectly good houses are boarded up and how the roads are in deplorable condition. There is dysfunction everywhere.
This has all been the result of Democratic policies of the Great Society promulgated by LBJ and the Democrats.
