The road to 10,000 families

The fact that the Census Bureau estimates a slight decline in Baltimore's population in the year that ended July 1, 2014, isn't the death knell of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's ambitious goal to attract 10,000 families to the city in a decade. The yearly estimates are just that —...

  • Hero or traitor?

    In every war there are inevitably soldiers who are captured, kidnapped or otherwise taken prisoner by the enemy. Some become POWs due to circumstances beyond their control while others behave in ways that, for whatever reason, seem to deliberately invite their capture. We don't know which...

    City schools' self-inflicted wound

    The Sun's report this week that Baltimore City school employees were paid $46 million last year in accrued leave, bonuses, overtime and other benefits is an embarrassment that couldn't come at a more inopportune moment. The department is already facing a $72 million budget deficit next year,...

    Detente at City Hall

    Let's have three cheers for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Comptroller Joan Pratt for coming to an agreement on a plan to move forward with the modernization of the city government's telephone system — one for each year that has been wasted in their pointless, petulant feud. The two...

    Big charter school operators can stymie innovation rather than promote it

    In opposing charter schools, Democrats show their true colors

    In gutting Gov, Larry Hogan's rather modest proposal to expand charter schools, Maryland's Democratic leadership has again proved its hostility to quality public education, especially for the black poor ("Senate panel rewrites Hogan's charter school law," March 26).

  • Why so little about Bergdahl charges?
    Why so little about Bergdahl charges?

    The Baltimore Sun has given little attention to the Army's announcement that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl would be charged as a deserter ("Bergdahl charges revive questions over 'Taliban 5' prisoner swap," March 26).

  • Let's discuss U.S. economic decline
    Let's discuss U.S. economic decline

    The commentary, "Why China thrives as the U.S. declines" (March 26), is especially poignant. In my opinion, it deserves a broader discussion on the editorial page and I believe it should be reprinted on the front page of The Sun as well.

  • Fracking's risks are 'considerable'
    Fracking's risks are 'considerable'

    I applaud your March 23 editorial endorsing a moratorium on fracking in Western Maryland ("Fracking deserves a pause," March 25). My considerable research reveals fracking in Maryland imposes severe and permanent environmental risks with questionable to negative long-term economic impacts to...
