  • Greening North Avenue

    Greening North Avenue

    North Avenue was once a lovely tree-lined boulevard that marked the northern limit of Baltimore City. Yet the passage of time has not been kind to the historic thoroughfare, which has long needed an upgrade. That's why we welcome the announcement that the U.S. Transportation Department will help...

  • Overwhelmed public defenders

    Overwhelmed public defenders

    In the justice system, criminal defendants are entitled to be represented by a lawyer, and if they can't afford to hire an attorney the government must provide one. That is an enduring principle of American jurisprudence, but increasingly it's one that states find hard to live up to. In Maryland,...

  • Clinton's foundational problem

    Clinton's foundational problem

    Even the most ardent supporters of Hillary Clinton must concede that the latest revelation regarding her connection to the Clinton Foundation — that numerous big donors to the charity appear to have had ready access to her when she served as secretary of state — doesn't reflect well on the Democratic...

  • Sun ignored Clinton's 'alt-right' speech

    Sun ignored Clinton's 'alt-right' speech

    It is ironic that The Sun carried two more letters from writers accusing the newspaper of liberal bias, but not one word about Hillary Clinton's important speech in Reno laying out in great detail the racist nature of Donald Trump's campaign ("Clinton takes aim at Trump's ties to 'alt-right' world...

  • Privacy is the issue

    Privacy is the issue

    Sorry, good citizens of the United States, but we let the horse out of the barn when we allowed the camera industry and its lobbyists to invade our lives with red light cameras, speed cameras, police cars with cameras galore and body cameras that prove nothing except, perhaps, our collective fondness...

  • Why the 2016 election will be the worst ever

    Why the 2016 election will be the worst ever

    A recent Sun editorial on Hillary Clinton exposed the bias of the media as well as the beltway elite ("Clinton's foundational problem," Aug. 24). At the age of 60, then-Senator Clinton was the Democratic Party's anointed choice in 2008 but was bypassed by a black senator with no experience in governance....

  • The Sun is in the tank for Hillary Clinton

    The Sun is in the tank for Hillary Clinton

    I was encouraged by the first part of your editorial criticizing Hillary Clinton for the "ethical entanglements" she created for the State Department and the Clinton Foundation ("Clinton's foundational problem," Aug. 24). The "great left-wing conspiracy," of which The Sun is a charter member, is...

  • City mishandles road closures

    City mishandles road closures

    Can anyone in Baltimore City government please explain the wisdom of simultaneously and without notice to commuters closing Franklin Street at Park Avenue and thereby throwing three lanes onto Park as well as closing Centre Street at Park, thereby throwing two more lanes of traffic onto Park and,...

  • J.D. Vance gives substance and dimension to America's invisible

    J.D. Vance gives substance and dimension to America's invisible

    His name doesn't even appear in the book. But make no mistake. "Hillbilly Elegy," the new best-seller by J.D. Vance, is, in a very real sense, about Donald Trump. More to the point, it's about the people who have made his unlikely run for the presidency possible. It is also, not coincidentally,...

  • Are Hillary's emails Donald's lifeline?

    Are Hillary's emails Donald's lifeline?

    A judge's order that nearly 15,000 previously undisclosed emails from Hillary Clinton's private server may possibly be released has given Donald Trump's campaign a much-needed diversion to turn the public spotlight back onto her one glaring political vulnerability -- her trustworthiness. The order...

  • Abolishing 'man' at Princeton

    Abolishing 'man' at Princeton

    "He created them male and female and blessed them. And he named them "Mankind" when they were created. (Genesis 5:2 NIV) Poor God. He, or maybe I should say, "It," was so behind the times. If the deity had only gone to Princeton University and had its consciousness raised... Princeton, that once...

  • How conservative pundits helped break reality

    How conservative pundits helped break reality

    Ordinarily, I might gloat. Last week, a prominent conservative pundit conceded a point yours truly and countless others have been making for a long time. Namely, that in their constant assaults on mainstream news media, conservatives have wrecked the very idea of objective, knowable fact. In effect,...

  • Why a single-payer health care system is inevitable

    Why a single-payer health care system is inevitable

    The best argument for a single-payer health care plan is the recent decision by giant health insurer Aetna to bail out next year from 11 of the 15 states where it sells Obamacare plans. Aetna's decision follows similar moves by UnitedHealth Group, the nation's largest health insurer, and by Humana,...
