Not quite 10 years ago when I moved to Baltimore from a D.C. suburb, I made the decision to switch from The Washington Post to The Baltimore Sun for my daily news read. Ever since, I have had the paper delivered to my home on a daily basis. Even as it has gone down hill in content over that time. But I enjoy the crossword puzzles, the jumble, the comics, this day in history, "Dear Amy," a quick read of the stats for the teams I follow and, if my interest is piqued, an occasional read of news content, the editorial page and the op-ed pieces.

I recognize that today in America political rhetoric is hard and skewed to one side or the other. And I certainly prefer one side over the other. But to allow pure political rhetoric and ranting as that put forth by former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. every Sunday on your opinion page with no accompanying supporting analysis like in this Sunday's paper is to allow paid political campaigning with The Sun paying to have this "garbage" in its paper ("Send a message to D.C. on election day," Oct. 26). It isn't even well written. Nothing but canned bullet points, throwing around invective and, at best, half-truths from whatever right wing sources the former governor follows. What a terrible commentary on the reputation of The Sun. It is kind of the "crème-de-la-crème" of the newspaper's disembowelment. This is not Jack Germond's Baltimore Sun.

If it wasn't for the crossword puzzles, jumble and comics, I would stop receiving and reading The Sun just for this reason.
