Dismissed: Tenants lose, landlords win in Baltimore's rent court

Don't let Sessions dismantle civil rights protections

Based on Jeff Sessions' dismal civil rights record as a U.S. senator, the NAACP protested his nomination as attorney general (I was even arrested for doing so), testified against him in Congress and predicted the consequences of his appointment in our communities. Specifically, we strongly opposed...

    Trump's tax plan: A shiny object of distraction

    It would be unfair of us to criticize President Donald Trump's tax plan as a gold-plated give-away to businessman Donald Trump. We do not in fact know that his proposal to slash tax rates more than in half for corporations and business entities like the one he and his family control would save...

  • Let spring break be spring break

    For the first time in 12 years, organizers of the Habitat for Humanity chapter at Broadneck High School are facing an obstacle they might not overcome. It's not a lack of volunteers, as the program is so popular that seniors have to apply to fill one of 16 slots. It's not a shortage of money to...

    Free speech v. Ann Coulter

    Ann Coulter is the equivalent of a "shock jock," a larger-than-life personality who is deliberately offensive and provocative and who taunts, goads, mocks and generally acts like a PG-13-rated Howard Stern. That she claims to eschew liberalism and promote politically conservative views is almost...

  • Cecil exec: Tier map protects local authority

    In 2012 my predecessor, County Executive Tari Moore, adopted a growth tier map proposal as required by the Sustainable Growth and Agricultural Preservation Act of 2012 (SB 236) passed by the General Assembly and signed into law by then-Gov. Martin O'Malley. This version was formally adopted by...

  • Sun's attack on Trump is sophomoric

    Wow, such an intellectual analysis regarding President Donald Trump's first 99 days in office ("Ninety-nine outrageous, disturbing, sad, inconsistent, false and astonishing days of Trump," April 27). You may as well have written: "Trump sucks, Day 99. Trump sucks, Day 98. Trump sucks, Day 97." Why...

  • Trump is good for 99 chuckles, at least

    Imagine my laughter when I turned the page of The Sun and was met with "Ninety-nine days of Trump" (April 28). And to think he and his administration assume we're not paying attention. Not! Thank you. I needed that. What a way to start the weekend. Anne Lansey, Baltimore

  • Bravo for the '99 days'

    Great job on "Ninety-nine days of Trump" (April 28)! I'm sure you will get push back from the other side, but putting it all on one page will hopefully educate those who voted for Donald Trump. It only shows how truly terrifying this administration is. Thank you for your reporting. Mary Lohmann...

  • Shame on The Sun

    I just read the editorial, "Ninety-nine days of Trump" (April 28), and I am speechless! A full page in The Sun to insult our president. You may not like Donald Trump and you may not agree with a lot of what he has done, but at least show some respect for the office of the president of the United...

    Witcover: Trump's way of deal-making doesn't translate to governing

    As the United States faces the possibility of a government shutdown at month's end, President Trump is learning the hard way the difference between demanding what he wants as a business tycoon and getting it as the chief executive in an electoral democracy of three separate and equal branches of...

    Pitts: The day Bill O'Reilly got fired

    On the day Bill O'Reilly was fired, Serena Williams announced she was 20 weeks pregnant. Fans did the math and concluded Ms. Williams must have had a baby on board in January when she won her 23rd Grand Slam singles title in dominating fashion. That, said TV tennis analyst Pam Shriver, made Ms....

    Robert B. Reich: The first 100 days -- Trump and the degradation of the presidency

    Donald Trump's failure to accomplish much or any of his agenda during his first 100 days as president shouldn't blind us to the vast harm he has done in this comparatively short time to our system of government, especially his degradation of the presidency. From early in the republic, we have looked...

    Horsey: Trump should claim victory on the border, abandon his foolish wall

    It was his sure-fire applause line, one he pulled out of his rhetorical grab bag whenever he saw he was losing the enthusiasm of a crowd: "I will build a big, beautiful wall and Mexico will pay for it!" If we are lucky, though, now that he is president, Donald Trump will renege on this, his biggest...

    Goldberg: Death penalty opponents are being dishonest in their arguments

    The debate over the death penalty can be infuriatingly dishonest. Consider the April 17 broadcast of Fox News Channel's "Special Report with Bret Baier" (a show on which I am an occasional commentator). Casey Stegall reported on the legal battle in Arkansas, where officials want to execute eight...
