    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,...

    The silver lining to Trump's presidency

    In the spirit of the new year, let’s take a glass-half-full look at the Trump presidency, which is coming to the end of its first year (yes, my friends, it’s only been a year). For all its chaos, crassness and sheer stupidity, the Trump era has actually ushered in some unintended positive consequences...

    Roland Park: Don't take down supportive signs, put more up

    The Roland Park Civic League should be commended for its swift reversal of an ill-considered request to residents — many of whom found it offensive — that they remove a handful of yard signs proclaiming support for immigrants and the Black Lives Matter movement because “sign clutter can be a nuisance...

    Sexual harassment isn't a partisan problem, it's a gender problem

    When news broke last month about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct, I got a bunch of emails from people demanding to know why I hadn’t included Bill Clinton in a list of prominent men either outed or punished in the past year for similar behavior. It’s a ridiculous, and revealing, question....
