  • Could stricter laws have stopped the Lafayette shooting?

    Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal did a remarkable thing over the weekend, at least by the standards of Republicans running for president: He argued that stricter gun control laws might have stopped a mass shooting. For the first few days after a gunman opened fire on the patrons of a movie theater in...

  • Breaking the cycle of poverty

    Across Maryland the aftershocks of the Great Recession of 2007 are still being felt nearly eight years later. While unemployment has fallen from its peak levels in 2008-2010, the recovery has left many of the state's most vulnerable families still struggling to make up for lost ground. Maryland,...

  • A 'good enough' agreement

    A 'good enough' agreement

    In unusually blunt terms, Secretary of State John Kerry warned the Senate Foreign Relations Committee this week that the only alternative to a negotiated agreement limiting Iran's nuclear program is war. That argument didn't go down well with the Republican lawmakers, who made it clear they aren't...

  • Iran deal falls woefully short

    Iran deal falls woefully short

War will not be the result if the deal is not signed, but at least the sanctions would still be in place. The only countries benefiting from this deal will...

    Last Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said that we ought to phase out Medicare and that the nation needs to "move to a new system that allows them to have something, because they're not going to have anything." Mr. Bush also praised Rep. Paul Ryan, the architect of a long-term...

  • Eyedrops a flawed substitute for cataract surgery

    Eyedrops a flawed substitute for cataract surgery

    Every medical therapy must weigh both risks and benefits ("Genetics study points towards eyedrop cataract treatment," July 22). While eye drop therapy to treat cataracts sounds enticing, I am not sure its use is worth the potential development costs and risks.

  • Another mass shooting, and who's responsible?

    Another mass shooting, and who's responsible?

    I am a cinema buff, and I went to the Charles Theatre recently to see a wonderful film. While there I realized that another mentally ill person decided to vent his furies in a movie theater. This time in Lafayette, La. ("La. shooter a drifter with 'hate in his heart,'" July 25). This is the USA,...
