    Baltimore needs more civility in its civil servants

    Why are police in Baltimore so angry? They're shoving 87-year-old women to the floor, beating up suspects, trampling on the Constitution and sending offensive emails to colleagues with the worst lines written in ALL CAPS. It's like they're at a Trump rally every day. Is it the job? Or is it them?...

    When you attack Trump, you attack his supporters

    Donald Trump is an easy target for his foes. His outsized ego and stunning ignorance make verbally tearing him down about as difficult as demolishing a house of Legos. But what happened to "when they go low, we go high"? Stephen Colbert called him a P.O.S. ("part of society," the talk show host...

    The lesson in Alton Sterling's criminal past

    Alton Sterling was not an admirable man. His rap sheet (offered to media by Baton Rouge officials for $148 a copy) is 46-pages long and includes convictions going back 20 years for illegal weapons possession; battery; carnal knowledge of a teen-ager (whom he impregnated); possession of stolen property;...

    What's wrong with NYT's 'mom hair'

    The most sexist thing I read this week came not from the mind of Donald Trump but from a New York Times columnist who devoted roughly 900 words to the concept of "mom hair" in a piece so insulting I initially thought it was a parody. It laments the choice "by even the city-dwelling mom" to chop...

    Get out of jail, free

    Antonio Muhammad sat in a Baltimore jail for weeks last year on $2,500 bail after being swept up in the riot-related arrests on charges of burglary. If it weren't for a crowdfunding effort to help people like him afford bail and the efforts of his court-appointed attorney, Kerri Cohen, the 20 year...

    Gender equality lacking in state leadership teams

    Hillary Clinton promised this week that if she's elected president, half of her advisory cabinet would be female. "I would have a cabinet that looks like America," she told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow during a town hall event, "and 50 percent of America is women." Actually, it's closer to 51 percent,...

    A duty to protect and serve

    When the Anne Arundel County sheriff's office sent out a press release detailing the arrest of Sheriff Ronald Bateman on allegations of domestic violence this week, the under-sheriff took the extra step of adding a personal testimonial about his boss. "I have never known the Sheriff to be a violent...

  • Can Light City redefine Baltimore?

    Can Light City redefine Baltimore?

    The organizers of Light City want the seven-day festival to eventually rebrand Baltimore. And I'll admit, at times it feels like we need a little rebranding. The Washington Post has mocked us for our homicide rate, Johns Hopkins fellows and their families say they're afraid to move here, and National...
