I had the pleasure of writing Red Maryland's first oped for the Baltimore Sun, yesterday.  Here's a taste.
KO is the poster child for Maryland Democratic crony capitalism. Their business model relies on getting their friends in government to take more dollars from taxpayers to give to their corporate clients. 
To borrow a phrase from Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi, they are the vampire squid of Maryland politics.

We will have an oped every Friday in the Sun, and check out the Red Maryland Baltimore Sun Blog at Baltimoresun.com/redmaryland.
