  • More jobs and better schools

    Ask anyone who lives in Baltimore the two things the city needs most and you're likely to get the same answer: Better schools for its children and more jobs for its working-age adults. That's why a proposal to make sure as many local residents as possible get work from the $1 billion plan to rebuild...

  • Policing the police

    Policing the police

    Perhaps it's no surprise that representatives of the state Fraternal Order of Police have come out against any changes to a Maryland law intended to protect the rights of officers accused of misconduct.

    Iran deal: Decide with facts

    The Congress is in the midst of a 60-day review of the Iran nuclear agreement. However, even before the deal was completed, Republicans in "lock step" rejected it. By contrast, several Democrats in both the House and Senate are seriously considering how they will vote ("Md. senators should support...

  • Trump is a fascist

    Trump is a fascist

    I had to laugh when I read the angry letter claiming that Donald Trump is more like Ronald Reagan than Adolf Hitler ("Trump is Reagan, not Hitler," Aug. 28). That's like saying the police don't discriminate against black people, just African Americans. After all, aside from the extermination camps,...

    Mfume: Sun is too quick to judge Mosby

    Last November Baltimore elected the youngest prosecutor of any major American city, and Marilyn Mosby has brought a balanced approach and a steady hand to the work of restoring a sense of justice and civility to the city's criminal justice system.
