The damage from electrical devices: First it was microwave ovens, then power lines, then cell phones. Now it is smart meters, according to the president of Maryland Smart Meter Awareness. Congratulations to the Baltimore Jewish Times for presenting both sides of the debate (“Smart Meter Debate Rages On,” Nov. 15). In retrospect, BGE should have replaced the meters without any fanfare. If asked, “Why the replacement?” they could have answered, “To improve the distribution of electricity and the reduction of costly meter readings.” I believe that anyone who opts out of the change should pay a monthly fee to BGE for their “personal” meter reading.
