Dan Rodricks is absolutely clueless. His article criticizing CEOs for their opinions regarding taxation and regulatory policies ("Complaining CEOs need to take a hike," May 8) has to be the most stupid piece on the subject that I have ever read. The editor who allowed it to see the light of day ought to be canned.
What does Mr. Rodricks think CEOs should be doing — joining hands and singing Kumbaya while the tax and spend politicians who want to have a say in every aspect of individuals' lives send Maryland down the rathole? If Maryland didn't sit next to the fountain of endless money and unproductive bureaucrats that is Washington, D.C, it would not only not have its bond rating, it would be the state version of Harrisburg, Pa. The drivel that comes out of Mr. Rodricks is unmatched in any publication I have ever seen.
