Alternative facts? Try blatant falsehoods

At the risk of mirroring the kind of hyperbole that is quickly turning Donald Trump into something akin to the nation's first living caricature, has any newly-installed president ever sabotaged his own administration as the fledgling 45th president of the United States as done in his first few...

    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...

  • The Bush years were pretty bad, too

    The Sun's statement that "everything is going to be OK" and referencing the George W. Bush election to note that "the Republic has marched on" doesn't take into consideration the two ongoing wars and the wreck of the economy that occurred during the Bush years ("A blue state guide to surviving...

  • Trump should be fair to all

    On Friday, our nation stood united to inaugurate Donald Trump ("Donald Trump sworn in as 45th president of the United States of America," Jan. 20). As an American and Ahmadi Muslim, I value the democratic transition of power and appreciate the fact that we live in a country that gives us our inalienable...

  • Buyer's remorse for Trump voters?

    Buyer's remorse for Trump voters?

    Now that the country is saddled for the next four years with an inexperienced, oversensitive, bigoted, misogynistic bully as president, I wonder just how much time will pass before the desperate working folks in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania who put Mr. Trump into office will realize that...

  • Trump's most influential adviser: Putin

    How could I have possibly missed Russian President Vladimir Putin's confirmation hearing before Congress for a position in the Trump Cabinet? I saw a good number of other prospective appointees and heard lurid tales involving many other notables soon to be appointed against my wishes by President...

  • Judge is fair to question costs

    Judge is fair to question costs

    How dare Judge James Bredar ask Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh how she is going to pay to accomplish all the requirements in the consent decree ("Federal judge overseeing Baltimore police consent decree summons Pugh to court," Jan. 19)! Has anyone actually read this true piece of brinkmanship?...

    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...

    Leonard Pitts Jr.: Godspeed, Mr. President

    Dear Mr. President: "Barack Obama is not Jesus." Those were the first words of the first column I ever wrote about you - a poke in the eye to Democrats who were singing rhapsodic hosannas about a certain highly regarded young senator. "Yes," I griped, "he has great potential. But is it asking too...
