Now is hardly the time to go nitpicking away at the holistic reasons for the fire that killed a pastor and a client of his church’s generous food pantry.
There are a handful of places from Ocean City to West Ocean City where a person needing a helping hand can go.
We think there should be more management oversight of food distribution from parcels of sustaining, nutritious foods all the way down to a simple cup of coffee.

It’s often been noted in newspaper circles that the greatest human need is neither love nor hate, but the desire of one person to change the writing of another.
Although that might be an accepted truth in this business, it is not true anywhere else, especially in government, where the overriding desire of officials, outside of being reelected or reappointed, is to control the money.
Hence, the long-running financial feud between Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan and others and the Worcester County Commissioners.
Although the absence of a county tax differential for Ocean City…
