Letter writer Lawrence Haislip of Monkton remembers the day when “the city was administered competently and efficiently and with pride and purpose” (”County residents criticize Baltimore out of frustration, not smugness,” July 29).

As Dan Rodricks has stated, the problems in this city are complex, and, frankly, they go back almost a century.
