  • Mikulski is right on Iran

    President Barack Obama won a major victory this week when Maryland's Barbara Mikulski became the 34th U.S. senator to announce her support for the nuclear accord with Iran.

  • The cost of unequal justice

    Why are African-Americans sentenced on average to significantly longer prison terms than whites convicted of similar crimes? Members of a Maryland panel charged with recommending reforms to the state's criminal justice system aim to find out, and if they succeed the result could not only lower...

    Missing lesson: respect for authority

    Living in Maryland has become shameful. How can a prosecuting attorney charge police officers for putting Freddie Gray in a police wagon uninjured? They did nothing to cause his injuries. It's causing hatred of the disadvantaged toward police ("Rallies set for Gray hearing," Sept. 1).

  • Furnishing a good excuse

    Furnishing a good excuse

    Let's see if I get this picture ("Hogan questions the O'Malleys' purchase of mansion furniture," Sept. 1). Our top elected state official lives in a fine government mansion which should have the best of furnishings. I do not disagree with this. The governor should live in a nice home.
