    I voted for Clinton, but her book makes me cringe

    I voted for Hillary Clinton. She would have made a fine president. She was well qualified for the position, and there’s no doubt she was maligned and misrepresented throughout the campaign on her way to winning the popular vote while ultimately losing in the Electoral College. Still, the very idea...

    Taylor Swift sets example for women by refusing to 'shake it off'

    I wish Taylor Swift had taken him to the cleaners. David Mueller — a 51-year-old DJ — had the gall to not only grab her 23-year-old behind during a photo op in 2013 (standing next to his then-girlfriend, no less), but to also sue the world-famous pop star for losing his radio job because of it. But...

    Take your own advice, commissioner: don't rush to defend officers accused of wrongdoing

    I understand Police Commissioner Kevin Davis’ impulse in wanting to stand up for his officers after two body camera videos appeared to show them staging drug recoveries in separate incidents. After all, we don’t really know what the recordings show, just what we think they show, and his department...

    Trump can't stop being himself

    In the same week we learned there was yet another reason to admire Amelia Earhart as a feminist icon and were reminded of the brilliance of Maryam Mirzakhani, the only woman to win the equivalent of a Nobel Prize in mathematics, our president reduced France’s first lady to the status of a racehorse....

    Lessons from a cowboy and recovering addict

    I got a handwritten letter in the mail last week from a city official complimenting a column, but also taking our opinion pages to task, noting that “observing and commenting … is far easier than blocking and tackling on the playing field.” And he’s right, of course (even if he too is “observing...

    Dear Baltimore judge: 'Manning up' is not admitting guilt, it's avoiding the crime

    On Sept. 7th, Dakei Perry, then 18, ordered from a Baltimore pizza place so he and his two accomplices could attack the delivery driver. They choked her, pawed through her pockets, stole her cash and cell phone — and then ate the food. Five days later, young Mr. Perry joined in the group assault...

    Don't leak lightly

    Before The Intercept even published its bombshell story Monday, proving that Russian hackers sought to interfere in the U.S. election last year, the 25-year-old woman who allegedly provided the classified information to the online news outlet was in federal custody, having been grabbed by agents...

    Don't say we didn't warn you, Rod Rosenstein

    "It was all him." — White House spokesman Sean Spicer throwing former Maryland U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein under the bus Tuesday night. Well, that didn't take long. Less than two weeks after being sworn in as the U.S. deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, who has long enjoyed bipartisan support...
