I heard that the Capital journalists wrote today’s paper from the back of a pick-up truck. Wherever they wrote the copy, the paper was delivered on time this morning, with the kind of steely-eyed professionalism everyone should aspire to.
We rely on the free press in the work we do at the Maryland League of Conservation Voters. We count on them to educate Marylanders about the work of our government, as well as the activities of advocates like us – both for and against. They are our partners in educating you on the work of the General Assembly and they hold both us and the General Assembly accountable. You can trust us more when an impartial, fact-checking, professional free press supports what we say. The free press is an environmental concern.
This is all to say that the heinous attack at the Capital yesterday was personal for us at Maryland LCV. Our hearts are broken for our friends and colleagues, and we are immeasurably grateful for their work.
