    Mids to Trump: 'La la la, I can't hear you'

    At most any other time in history, it would be perfectly fitting to have the president of the United States address the U.S. Naval Academy’s graduating class. After all, he or she (I can dream) is also the commander in chief and in charge of the armed forces. The president ultimately decides where...

    Talking trash and trashing Baltimore

    Pulling out of a parking spot at the Giant on 41st Street in Hampden this weekend with a car full of groceries, I was blocked by a sedan that had paused in the middle of the lane. Why? So the passenger could throw food wrappers out of her open window. It was all I could do to keep from getting...

    Secret surveillance a hard sell in Baltimore

    There’s a lot to be uncomfortable with when it comes to Persistent Surveillance Systems, the Ohio-based aerial surveillance company that secretly spied on Baltimore for the police department from a Cessna plane in 2016 before the program was shut down over widespread privacy concerns. What they...

    I downloaded my Facebook data. I'm amused — and disturbed.

    My presence on Facebook is fairly minimal. I keep my “friends” list small — it’s mostly made up of those who are also in-person friends — and I post infrequently. So I wasn’t too surprised when the social media company said I likely was not among the more than 87 million users whose data were swept...

    Let's go to the tape: alleged #MeToo moment caught on video in Annapolis

    If anyone is “delusional” about the karaoke bar interaction between state Sen. Cheryl Kagan and lobbyist Gil Genn, it would seem to be Mr. Genn, whose statements about what occurred included so many inaccuracies that if it weren’t caught on video, one would think he wasn’t even there. And that’s...

    Want to give Md. kids a future? Fund their educations before metal detectors

    The day after the Parkland school shooting in Florida, my daughter’s Maryland principal sent out a note reminding parents to follow the safety protocol when stopping by: Report to the main office, sign in and state your business. A week later, that missive was followed up with another, tightening...

    Americans set aside partisan differences to root for home team in Olympics

    Thank God for the Olympics. As our country reels from yet another deadly mass shooting and continues to bear the weight of the daily drama between Republicans and Democrats, the PyeongChang Winter Olympics gives Americans brief respite from the madness and a positive reason to come together to...

    Discussing race with my 5 year old

    Most weeks, my daughter’s class sends home three books for parents to read with their kindergartners. Last week, one of ours was a book of poems written by African-American children, celebrating their blackness. One little girl wrote that black is beautiful, and so is white — and my blond-haired,...
