Maybe I'm Just Too Demanding/ Maybe I'm Just Like My Father, Too Bold


Buried in the third paragraph of an interview with outgoing Maryland Gov. Bob Ehrlich (R), Len Lazarick notes:

Rather than conduct a series of one-on-one interviews, Ehrlich's press office invited reporters to dine on seafood stew over rice—but only print journalists from newspapers who had endorsed his re-election, which was just about all of them except for The Sun.

Ehlrich had made some nice feints toward libertarianism in office—an openness to medical marijuana, a veto of an anti-Wal Mart bill—but he spent months fighting the Baltimore Sun because he viewed them as biased against him, finally cutting off their access to his office. Too bad he felt like he needed to underline that mild thuggishness as he exited the state house.
