  • Don't cut state funding for city schools

    As a Baltimore citizen who loves this city I was heartened by your recognition that cutting funding for the schools is "unacceptable for a system that has struggled for years to raise achievement levels among some of the state's most disadvantaged youngsters" ("Baltimore's 'ghost students,'" Feb....

  • Where are women on the sports pages?

    The Sun's coverage of women's sports is disappointing given that the University of Maryland women's basketball team is highly ranked yet for the most part only mentioned on the back pages of the sports section ("Walker-Kimbrough's encore performance leads No. 5 Maryland over No. 17 Michigan State,...

  • Gen X: The cohort that never found its voice

    I read with interest "The millennial work ethic" (Jan. 28) but what the piece missed was any discussion about gen gap ideals among the "in-between" generation, Gen X. Remember us? Probably not so much. We were a blip on the consumer goods marketing charts, the less populous round of children born...

  • 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...

  • 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. The children and young people of this city are our only hope for a bright future for us all....

  • Leaders don't spread hate

    Thank you for your editorial ("'One American family,'" Feb. 7) on President Barack Obama's speaking to us from a mosque/civic center about the traditional values that make America a unique haven for the appreciation of differences. It reminded me of a conversation with our son at his high school...

  • 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...

  • Hillary's Iowa 'win' is a big loss for Democrats

    Hillary's Iowa 'win' is a big loss for Democrats

    Hillary Clinton's asterisk-heavy victory in Iowa might have been the narrowest of wins for her, but it was arguably the worst of all possible outcomes for the Democratic Party. As of this writing, the result was a statistical tie, 49.9 percent for Ms. Clinton and 49.6 percent for Bernie Sanders....

  • Can sitcoms erase bigotry?

    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

    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...
