Oops--Dixon was there first
My story on the front page of The Sun Friday reporting Gov. Martin O'Malley's decison to issue an executive order telling executive branch employees not to use cell phones while driving state-owned cars wasn't exactly wrong. It would have been better, however, had it given Mayor Sheila Dixon a nod for getting there first.
Last September, in a story that received far less conspicuous play than mine, The Sun's Annie Linskey reported that Dixon has issued an even more sweeping order telling city employees to lay off using any kind of cell phone -- hend-held or hands-free -- while behind the wheel of a municipal vehicle.
Once again, the mayor was a woman ahead of her time.
