Harford's hysteria

In case you missed this, or simply thought it was too insane to possibly be true, let us reiterate a bit of news that broke late last week. The Harford County school system has decided to indefinitely ban student field trips into Baltimore City because of the unrest that followed Freddie Gray's...

  • So what if millennials want to change the world?

    In defense of Erin Heilman ("The millennial work ethic," Jan. 28), many may have missed the important point in the article, which was that the world may be better if people did not work 24/7 and went home at the end of the workday to be with their families. I believe it would go a long way to improve...

  • Mckesson brings passion to the mayor's race

    I find it surprising, as one with mixed feelings about the Black Lives Matter movement, that I find myself welcoming the candidacy of DeRay Mckesson for mayor of Baltimore City ("DeRay Mckesson's Baltimore mayoral run brings praise, skepticism," Feb. 4). As is often the case, the less informed we...

  • Warnock understands education

    The world is changing and many industries that once powered Baltimore's economy have evolved or faded as new technologies emerged and global economic climates changed, eliminating many of the jobs they once provided. No longer do steel furnaces glow at Sparrows Point, and the days of hundreds of...

  • Democrats are pro-Muslim

    There was no need for President Barack Obama to attend a mosque in support of Islam to ensure the Muslim vote in 2016 ("Obama's mosque visit is leading by example," Feb. 3). The Muslim community is already overwhelming in its support of the Democratic Party with strong voices in that party for...

  • Democrats court felon vote

    Last week, the Maryland Senate again delayed the vote to override Gov. Larry Hogan's veto requiring current felons to complete parole or probation before they regain their right to vote. This marks the third time the vote has been delayed ("Senate puts off vote on veto override of felons' voting...

  • Clock points to renewal

    Shame on The Baltimore Sun for printing a letter ("A city frozen in time," Feb. 6) that is based on information The Sun's editors should have known is not true. The Silver Spring letter writer joined the chorus of Baltimore naysayers by citing the "abandoned" Bromo Seltzer tower's clock not even...

  • Warnock can reshape Baltimore

    As Baltimore continues to make headlines for all of the wrong reasons, it is clear that this upcoming generation will have thrust upon them the tall task of reshaping, remaking and redefining Baltimore.

    Can sitcoms erase bigotry?

    So it turns out sitcoms can erase bigotry. That's the bottom line of a study recently presented before a conference of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology. And it doesn't even have to be a particularly good sitcom. To judge, at least, from a screening of its first two episodes, the...

    Republicans find welcome message in Iowa caucuses

    The rest of the country can thank the voters of Iowa for two outcomes of their first-in-the nation caucuses. They have punctured the alleged inevitability of the presidential nominations of Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton. Each may yet occur, but probably only after a long...

    Justice for Caroline Small, a small step toward justice for all

    Last week, a group of church friends held a town hall meeting in Brunswick, Ga. Their purpose is embodied in their name: Justice For Caroline Small. Chances are, you've never heard of her. She was a waitress, a mother of two girls, and a woman with mental health issues who was in and out of drug...

  • It takes a movement

    It takes a movement

    In 2008, when then-Sen. Barack Obama promised progressive change if elected president, his primary opponent, then-Sen.Hillary Clinton, derided him. "The skies will open, the light will come down, celestial choirs will be singing, and everyone will know we should do the right thing and the world...

  • The Grand Old Party in crisis

    The Grand Old Party in crisis

    As the Republican Party seeks an electable presidential nominee amid the current reign of public anger and hostility, it seems oblivious to the depth of its internal crisis. The GOP is split in its allegiance and preference between billionaire celebrity Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas....
