Some people may object to Gov.Martin O'Malley's proposal to raise the sales tax to "pay for highway and transit projects" ("O'Malley looks at sales tax increase for roads," April 4). Well, why not? It seems perfectly logical, since we are using gas tax proceeds to pay for windmills and lottery receipts to subsidize light rail projects! Here's an idea for the governor: let's use bottle tax revenue to pave pot-holed streets and build new schools in Baltimore! Such logical thinking could easily propel him into the vice president's office next fall!
