A nation with zero tolerance for children

Immigrant children suffer enough hardships — often fleeing from violence in their home countries and facing grueling physical challenges in their quest for a better life — that one might assume that surely the last brickbat to be tossed their way would be the Bible. Yet no fewer than two of the...

    Ben Jealous, hero to the 'economically illiterate'

    Ben Jealous, like Bernie Sanders, is the candidate of the economically illiterate who think you can get something for nothing. The Baltimore Sun’s own editorial board concedes that he doesn't have clear proposals for how to pay for Medicare for all or "free" college tuition, though, in fact, the...

    World Cup: Do it now!

    What a boon it would be if Baltimore could get 2026 FIFA World Cup games (“With FIFA 2026 World Cup awarded to North American bid, Baltimore moves closer to soccer’s biggest stage,” June 13). It would help Charm City's tourism rise up and recover from the damage of many recent events. Terry Hasseltine,...

  • Wind turbines a beautiful sight - because of what they represent

    Wind turbines a beautiful sight - because of what they represent

    I read with interest Dan Rodricks column, “Wind resistance in O.C. is ludicrous” (June 12). He noted “the resistance by the mayor and other municipal leaders in Ocean City to the prospect of a wind farm 14 to 17 miles offshore.” I was in Copenhagen, Denmark, several years ago and could see wind...

    Donald Trump is the new Neville Chamberlain

    On Sept. 30, 1938, Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain returned from the Munich Conference (a meeting with Nazi leaders) with a worthless document and proclaimed “We have achieved peace for our time.” President Trump returned from Singapore with an equally worthless document saying “North Korea...

  • We should negotiate peace without disarming North Korea

    I see that American exceptionalism is alive and well (“Advantage Kim,”June 12): Denuclearization for thee but not for me! Apparently, North Korea must unilaterally disarm and leave itself vulnerable to invasion, just as Libya's Gaddafi fatally weakened himself when he abandoned his nukes. Americans...

    Pitts: A simple traffic stop left Ayanna Cruver terrified

    Two weeks ago, a black woman driving alone in Princeton, La., was pulled over for no apparent reason. But she was not shot and killed. Or hauled from her car and body-slammed. Or even arrested for getting snippy. The officer explained that she was driving under the speed limit, something he said...

    Reich: Trump's infrastructure scam

    At a roundtable discussion with state transportation officials last Friday, Donald Trump said America's aging roads, bridges, railways and water systems were being "scoffed at and laughed" at. He vowed that they "will once again be the envy of the world." This seems to be a core theme for Mr. Trump:...

    Horsey: Trump's big crime: Ignoring Russia's assault on U.S. elections

    A deadly serious conclusion can be drawn from former FBI Director James Comey' s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee: Donald Trump cares more about himself than about the security of the United States. That disturbing reality is getting scant attention, however, as Republicans and...

    Rachel Marsden: Climate change is replacing war as the new pretext for imperialism

    PARIS -- When U.S. President Donald Trump announced America's withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on climate change, newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron seized the opportunity to lecture Mr. Trump in English and implore him to "make the planet great again." Who is this guy? Some kind...
