  • Why no fairness for Christine Blasey Ford?

    Why no fairness for Christine Blasey Ford?

    After almost 30 years we are still in the same place when a Supreme Court nominee is accused of sexual abuse. Anita Hill bravely submitted herself to Senate hearings after accusing Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. Ms. Hill ended up on trial. Mr. Thomas refused to discuss details and he currently...

    Poll shows Democratic candidates are failing Maryland's progressives

    In light of recent polls for the governor's race (“Marylanders like Larry Hogan — and a $15 minimum wage,” Sept. 18), the Democratic Party is revealed its consistency in one area — a failure to support progressive policies and candidates.

    Zurawik: Just when you thought Ben Jealous couldn't do worse as a media candidate ...

    Ben Jealous was floundering as a media candidate before he used the f-word at a news conference yesterday to respond to a reporter’s question.

    Pitts: A simple traffic stop left Ayanna Cruver terrified

    Two weeks ago, a black woman driving alone in Princeton, La., was pulled over for no apparent reason. But she was not shot and killed. Or hauled from her car and body-slammed. Or even arrested for getting snippy. The officer explained that she was driving under the speed limit, something he said...

  • Reich: Trump's infrastructure scam

    Reich: Trump's infrastructure scam

    At a roundtable discussion with state transportation officials last Friday, Donald Trump said America's aging roads, bridges, railways and water systems were being "scoffed at and laughed" at.
