Baltimore's 'sad day' is actually a good thing

Finally, now ex-Mayor Catherine Pugh had the dignity to resign amid the scandal and various criminal investigations ongoing about her “book deals” and other possible ethics questions. It is just too bad she did not have the dignity to finally end this blight on Baltimore in person and face the residents of Baltimore she humiliated with her disgraceful actions inspired by her arrogance and greed. No, she had to have her lawyer make the big delivery with no questions allowed (“Baltimore Mayor Pugh resigns amid growing children’s book scandal,” May 2).

Her attorney, Steven Silverman, had the audacity to say, “This is a sad day for Mayor Pugh and a sad day for the city of Baltimore.” Sad day for Baltimore? No, Steve. Read the comments on the Sun’s Facebook page. Ms. Pugh should have resigned weeks ago, but wait, she wasn’t “lucid.” If I were her lawyer, I would have come back with an explanation of her absence not so ludicrous as telling everyone she isn’t lucid.

But now, as the song goes, “the party’s over,” and we must move on to the next big scandal in Baltimore, whatever that may turn out to be. And there will be if The Sun and its investigative staff has anything to do with it.
