Access to addiction treatment restricted for middle class

Addiction does not discriminate – it wreaks havoc on individuals and families regardless of race, age, gender or socioeconomic status. But there’s a huge gap in access to treatment for a very large portion of the population: the middle-class. The two primary socio-economic groups in this country...

    BaltimoreLink is even worse than you let on

    Your article on the first year of operation of the BaltimoreLink bus service contains a crucial omission (“One year of BaltimoreLink bus system: Ridership bounces back, reliability still falls short,” June 15). Although the article reported BaltimoreLink lost an astounding 23 percent of its riders...

    Almond would be more of the same in Baltimore County

    I read the letter to editor from Baltimore County Councilman Tom Quirk (“Brochin promises but won't be able to deliver new schools, parks,” June 16) with great interest. Mr. Quirk argued that Jim Brochin will be unable to keep the promises that he is making if elected Baltimore County Executive,...

    Jim Brochin knows exactly how to fund his priorities

    I write in response to County Councilman Tom Quirk’s letter questioning where county executive candidate Jim Brochin will find the money to fulfill his vision for Baltimore County (“Brochin promises but won't be able to deliver new schools, parks,” June 16). He indeed has a pretty good idea of...

  • Opponents of wind turbines lack perspective

    Opponents of wind turbines lack perspective

    Dan Rodricks recent column, “Wind resistance in Ocean City is ludicrous” (June 12), was spot on. The only thing missing was a quantitative idea of how high these wind turbines will appear which I would like to add. At 14 miles offshore and 370 feet high, the angular height will be 0.28 degrees....

  • Sun erred in endorsing John Olszewski

    Sun erred in endorsing John Olszewski

    Your endorsement of John Olszewski in the Baltimore County executive race left me disheartened (“Democrat John Olszewski for Baltimore County executive,” June 14). You have embraced a person who suddenly calls himself a “progressive” despite his votes against the state’s assault weapons ban, against...

    Pitts: A simple traffic stop left Ayanna Cruver terrified

    Two weeks ago, a black woman driving alone in Princeton, La., was pulled over for no apparent reason. But she was not shot and killed. Or hauled from her car and body-slammed. Or even arrested for getting snippy. The officer explained that she was driving under the speed limit, something he said...

  • Reich: Trump's infrastructure scam

    Reich: Trump's infrastructure scam

    At a roundtable discussion with state transportation officials last Friday, Donald Trump said America's aging roads, bridges, railways and water systems were being "scoffed at and laughed" at. He vowed that they "will once again be the envy of the world." This seems to be a core theme for Mr. Trump:...

    Horsey: Trump's big crime: Ignoring Russia's assault on U.S. elections

    A deadly serious conclusion can be drawn from former FBI Director James Comey' s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee: Donald Trump cares more about himself than about the security of the United States. That disturbing reality is getting scant attention, however, as Republicans and...

    Rachel Marsden: Climate change is replacing war as the new pretext for imperialism

    PARIS -- When U.S. President Donald Trump announced America's withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on climate change, newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron seized the opportunity to lecture Mr. Trump in English and implore him to "make the planet great again." Who is this guy? Some kind...
