    I am a University of Maryland alum who participated in the environmental clinic. The proposal to cut their funding because they have ruffled the feathers of some businesses and politicians is unacceptable. The students are learning valuable practical skills and performing an important public function in protecting and maintaing the environment for EVERYONE.

    We have due process and it should be allowed to address these issues. A political hack trying to short circuit the process deserves to be removed from office. His actions are a form of blackmail and it is the court which should be handling this. It sounds to me like law students should organize to see Senator Richard Colburn removed from office.
