Right as 'rain tax'

I am not a fan of Gov. Martin O'Malley, but he was right for initiating his so-called "rain tax" ("'Rain tax' sobriquet is misleading," Nov. 19). In a Midwestern state, homeowners are subject to heavy fines if they allow runoff rain water to enter the streets. They must redirect it to their own grassy landscape surroundings.

The recurring cutting down of nature's barrier trees for the sake of development — an overly used word of excuse — has to be curtailed, and Governor O'Malley courageously and rightfully did.
