The Mail: 9/30-10/7

Readers are stunned we gave props to Larry Hogan. Stunned!

Redemption for Rodricks?

Sun stalwart Dan Rodricks is leaving his post at WYPR radio, and in your Baltimore City Power Rankings of Sept. 23-30, you cite Dan for incompetence. I think he is competent and that's it; he never rises above competence, a shame for the city's only annointed (by whom?) columnist.

Can't say I'm sorry to see Dan go. He never apologized for jumping on Marc Steiner's grave, nor has any one else at YPR. We remember that. Maybe now he has the chance?

I will miss him—such a delicious whipping boy: stolid, plodding, mediocre but nicely liberal and very good on some issues, ex-offenders for example

When you think of right wing talk show people like C4 or Derek Hunter at WBAL AM radio, Dan comes off as a prince. In his youth, he had potential. Can he ever redeem himself?
