Opinion

Trump and Israel

When former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry bluntly criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last month for sabotaging the chances for a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he did nothing more than restate what has been the goal of official U.S. policy in the region for...

    Judging transit's performance

    Maryland's farebox recovery rule may be one of the most arbitrary and ineffective mandates in state transportation law. In simple terms, it requires the Maryland Transit Administration to recover at least 35 percent of its total operating costs from fares and other operating revenues. Why 35 percent...

  • The real climate hoax

    The real climate hoax

    Perhaps taking a page from the bad old days of the petroleum-influenced George W. Bush administration, Donald Trump's cabinet nominees aren't denying the science behind climate change, they're just trying to cast doubt. Asked about mankind's impact on global warming, they've collectively shrugged...

    Trump's raised fist of defiance

    After taking the oath of office as America's 45th president, Donald J. Trump proved that we can stop waiting for him to drop the act he put on during the campaign and become what we think of as presidential. It did not happen after he won, it did not happen during the transition, it did not happen...

  • Don't mix sports and politics

    Why does The Sun continue to include political hit pieces in its sports section ("Spurs coach Gregg Popovich on Donald Trump: 'Can't believe anything that comes out of his mouth,'" Jan. 22)? The Sun has a politics section. The Popovich article is not a "sports" story by any stretch of the imagination....

  • Don't like the U.S.? Try Soviet Russia

    Your coverage of Donald Trump's inauguration as president was grossly unfair. The paper carried just a tiny picture of our new president on a corner of the page ("President Trump: 'From this day forward it's only going to be America first,'" Jan. 20). When I was a child in Soviet Russia, living...

  • With Trump, Sun goes temper tantrum

    With Trump, Sun goes temper tantrum

    Following the taking of the oath of office, President Donald J. Trump outlined his goals for his term in office. He accurately described the many problems facing the country and expressed the frustration many people have with the powers-that-be in Washington, D.C. I expected The Sun to express...

  • Congressional Dems were right to boycott Trump's inauguration

    Congressional Dems were right to boycott Trump's inauguration

    I beg to differ with letter writer Douglas Roberts, who thinks elected leaders who "boycotted" President Donald Trump's inauguration were being "divisive, counterproductive and childish" ("Inauguration 'boycott' is counterproductive and wrong," Jan. 19). When President Barack Obama took office,...

  • Don't shortchange rail safety

    When I was younger, my mother bought me a bike. She had one rule for me: wear your helmet. When she caught me without my helmet, she took my bike. I didn't ask her to conduct a series of studies on the efficacy of helmets; I didn't suggest that wearing a helmet was too burdensome for me to effectively...

    Horsey: Top performers shun inauguration to avoid normalizing Trump

    A few days before Bill Clinton's inauguration in 1993, I got clipped from behind while playing recreational league soccer. I was sidelined with a sprained ankle, but the injury did not stop me from flying to Washington two days later. There was a big story to cover. Hobbling on crutches, I made...

    Jonah Goldberg: The science of intellectual tribalism

    "David Gelernter, fiercely anti-intellectual computer scientist, is being eyed for Trump's science adviser." -- Washington Post, Jan. 18 Um. Well, huh. For those unfamiliar with David Gelernter, he essentially created parallel computing, which sounds like witchcraft to me, but I'm told it's a really...

    Cal Thomas: Trying a different way

    Some years ago a friend of mine wrote a book titled "The Seven Last Words of the Church, or, We've Never Tried It That Way Before." It is about what he regarded as the entrenched bureaucracies in his denomination that are reluctant -- even hostile -- to change. The same opposition to change exists...

    Witcover: Inauguration under a shadow

    There is nothing to stop Donald Trump's swearing-in as the 45th American president, despite public dissent, such as Democratic Congressman John Lewis's contention that Mr. Trump will be not be a "legitimate" president. Those many voters who cling to the Georgia civil-rights icon's view have come...

    Leonard Pitts Jr.: The Great Trumpkin rises from the Trumpkin patch

    Sometimes, you've got to go through it to get to it. That's a personal motto with which I have occasionally consoled myself since I was a teenager. It means that for as much as we naturally seek to avoid the unpleasant situation, to find a way over or around it, there are times in this life when...
