    The road through Baltimore

    In the growing field of presidential contenders, Martin O'Malley has been treated often as a punch line — even President Barack Obama recently got into the act joking that the former Maryland governor could go undetected at his own fundraiser. But Mr. O'Malley said something Sunday that ought to...

    Reining in the surveillance state

    In a sign that the possibility of bipartisan cooperation in Congress is not completely dead, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have moved closer to a consensus on modifying the U.S. Patriot Act, which authorizes the government's secret spying program targeting the private phone calls and email...

    In riots' wake, we expect more from our leaders

    In response to KAL's Sunday cartoon and Wes Moore's op-ed, I start with the presumption that our elected leaders are more motivated by the best interests of Baltimore than they are by their narrow interest in re-election, that our business leaders are more motivated by an interest in long-term...

    The 'thugs' found an easy mark

    After watching this past week's "protests" in Baltimore play out, I feel new battle lines need to be drawn between the law and the criminals ("A step toward justice for Freddie Gray," May 1). We need an all-out "war on thugs."
