Your questions about why Amazon would bypass Seattle were interesting ("Hey Amazon, if you lived here, you could live here," Oct. 17), but then my simple question would be why would Amazon want to come to Baltimore? The issue that you should have added in your editorial is comparisons of the murder rates between the two cities and the safety for their employees. You mention business climate. There are no Fortune 500 companies in Baltimore and when you do get established, Annapolis wants to take it all in taxes. I will be shocked if they even come close to Baltimore, but if they do, I guess the state and city gave them the keys to the bank vault.
