Why, Dallas Dance, why?

During Dallas Dance’s incarceration, he should check out a laptop and write his book: “Why I Did It” (“Dallas Dance was going places, now he’s going to jail,” April 20).

What would prompt a rising star to sacrifice career and demoralize a family? Since he had first-hand experience in this practice, why did he choose this path? Was money the principal impulse? Did he feel above the law?

The former Baltimore County schools superintendent’s scheme is ubiquitous with people in high positions today. It is not unusual for one to read the arrest of a politician, banker, CEO, financial adviser or law enforcer. Why is he part of this group?

Mr. Dance did it. Now, he should tell us why.

John Holter, Baltimore
