In Maryland, candidates Ben Jealous for governor, Marc Elrich...

    Don't send message that teen sexual assault is OK

    Does anyone see the error in the argument that Brett Kavanaugh was just a teenager when this alleged sexual assault occurred? By using this argument, you are then excusing any and all teenage boys of the same behavior. Do youth, liquor and hormones make this behavior right (“An alt-right Twitter...

    Motorists must learn to drive around pedestrians

    I completely agree with The Baltimore Sun editorial, “Can you drive 25?” (Sept. 19). However, I have some other thoughts: At least the city recognizes one of many problems and is doing something.

    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.

    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.
