A tale of two Marylanders: One stays and prospers, the other cuts and runs

I was filled with admiration after reading about Kevin Plank's dedication to staying in his home state of Maryland ("Under Armour founder Kevin Plank sees himself as the underdog," May 9). I have no doubt that he will achieve his goal of growing Under Armour into a Fortune 500 company.

Minutes later, I read Constance Kihm's letter bidding farewell to Maryland because of the laws passed by our (democratically elected) leaders ("Farewell, my Maryland, farewell to taxes, farewell to extreme liberalism," May 10).

On one hand we have a dynamic entrepreneur committed to improving the quality of life in our community, on the other hand we are losing a citizen who is offended by the humane treatment of immigrants and the adoption of sensible gun laws. This sounds like a net positive for Maryland to me.
