  • 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...

  • The Parkers' 'sound cause'

    Kudos to Andy and Barbara Parker — parents of Alison Parker, the young reporter for WDBJ who, along with cameraman Adam Ward, was killed last week in Roanoke, Va. by an angry and unbalanced former co-worker — who have decided to make the enactment of sensible and reasonable safeguards on the possession...

    When Martin O'Malley left the governor's mansion in January, he and his wife were allowed to buy for $9,638 dozens of pieces of furniture the taxpayers had spent $62,000 to purchase, most of it eight years earlier, on the grounds that it was "junk" that would otherwise have been thrown away.

  • Make a healthy harvest available to all

    Make a healthy harvest available to all

    I applaud Healthy Harvest's mission of finding a market for fresh and edible produce "rejects" ("Howard start-up targets food waste," Aug. 26).

  • Why are so many homicide victims black?

    Why are so many homicide victims black?

    I am shocked by your recent report that virtually all Baltimore City homicide victims are minorities ("45 murders in 31 days: Looking back at Baltimore's deadliest month," Aug. 29).

  • Renaming peak a wrong priority

    Renaming peak a wrong priority

    As usual and with his myopic view of issues, President Barack Obama chose to direct his foolishness to renaming Mount McKinley rather than the importance of energy issues in the United States ("Alaska-bound, Obama renames America's tallest peak," Aug. 31).
