  • Mosby's 'conflicts'

    The heated rhetoric on both sides of the prosecution of officers involved in Freddie Gray's death has intensified in recent days, with their attorneys calling for State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby to be replaced by a special prosecutor and with her office firing back in court briefs. Given the passions...

  • Capitalizing on Harriet

    Capitalizing on Harriet

    In case you missed it, Harriet Tubman has suddenly gotten hot. Call it what you will, but she's trending, she's page view bait, she's tweet-able, which is the best kind of hot these days. Not bad for an escaped slave from Dorchester County and courageous Underground Railroad pioneer who would have...

  • Who will stand up to the violence?

    Who will stand up to the violence?

    Baltimore's Western Police District, the part of town where 25-year-old Freddie Gray was fatally injured following his arrest in April and where the subsequent protests and violence were centered, has seen nearly as many murders so far this year as it did in all of 2014. Of the 95 homicides so...

  • Transit can save motorists more than reduced tolls

    Transit can save motorists more than reduced tolls

    Gov. Larry Hogan's recent toll reductions ("What price for lower tolls?" May 7) may be politically popular, but it's not the most effective or sustainable way to reduce the cost of transportation for Maryland families.

  • Mosby has handled the Gray case well so far

    Mosby has handled the Gray case well so far

    Commentators Steven H. Levin and Jason M. Weinstein call on Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby to conduct a full and fair grand jury investigation of the Freddie Gray case, but they seem to have already conducted their own investigation and dismissed all charges against the officers...

  • Hogan needs to learn Christie's lesson

    Hogan needs to learn Christie's lesson

    Striking at a recalcitrant politician by harming his constituency was not original to the governor of New Jersey, but Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan might find it instructive to look at the harm that this tactic did to the reputation of Gov. Chris Christie ("Hogan can't make spending switch without...

  • No excuse for $1M tab

    No excuse for $1M tab

    The article concerning the Defense Department employees racking up big tabs at various gambling and club venues makes one's blood boil ("Report: Defense employees ring up $1 million tab at casinos, clubs," May 20). What are the punishments for these bums?

  • Give Tubman her own bill

    Give Tubman her own bill

    You want to really honor Harriet Tubman ("Capitalizing on Harriet," May 20)? Leave old President Andrew Jackson alone and create a new bill — a $30 bill. That would truly make a statement!

  • The revolt of small-business Republicans

    The revolt of small-business Republicans

    Can it be that America's small businesses are finally waking up to the fact that they're being victimized by big businesses?

  • Jeb Bush's slippery slope on Iraq

    Jeb Bush's slippery slope on Iraq

    Jeb Bush's ham-handed answer to questions about the 2003 invasion of Iraq has raised another: Is he really ready for prime time as a 2016 presidential prospect?

  • Missouri pol's sexting scandal is good comic relief

    Missouri pol's sexting scandal is good comic relief

    There's nothing like a little sex scandal to restore one's faith in politics as the greatest source of trashy entertainment. So, thank you, Missouri Speaker of the House John Diehl for wrecking your career by exchanging a string of cringe-worthy texts with a 19-year-old female intern.

  • Democrats get a taste of Obama's arrogance

    Democrats get a taste of Obama's arrogance

    These are not good times for the Republic (and if you laughed or scratched your head at me calling America a republic, I rest my case).

  • Baltimore's problems not rooted in racist police

    Baltimore's problems not rooted in racist police

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch has announced a Justice Department investigation to determine whether the Baltimore Police Department’s practices are unconstitutional and violate civil rights; in short, whether or not the police force there is racist. It will come as no surprise if the investigation...
