Integrity at the ballot box

One of the last questions asked of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump at Monday night's debate at Hofstra University deserves to be revisited. Moderator Lester Holt asked both candidates whether, if they lost the election, they accept the results as the "will of the voters." Both indicated that yes,...

    Syria's failed cease fire

    What is happening in Syria is heartbreaking. The short-lived cease fire brokered by the U.S. and Russia two weeks ago collapsed ignominiously before it was even fully implemented. Meanwhile, Russian and Syrian government aircraft are back in the skies dropping incendiary weapons and bunker-busting...

  • Budget bad news

    Budget bad news

    The latest round of fiscal bad news for Maryland's state government prompted a spokeswoman for Gov. Larry Hogan to dust off a classic Republican talking point: "Let's be clear: Maryland doesn't have a revenue problem," spokeswoman Amelia Chasse said. "Certain members of the General Assembly have...

    Gun owners, the vocal minority

    Last month, a 63-year-old teacher at Cumberland Valley Christian School, a church-affiliated K-12 school with an enrollment of 400 students in Chambersburg, Pa., just 24 miles north of Hagerstown, left a loaded handgun on top of the toilet tank in a school bathroom. At least four primary-school-aged...

  • Body donation is 'greatest good'

    Burying bodies, with or without embalming and caskets, is not the most "gracious and grateful way" of giving our bodies back to the world ("Natural burials: the ultimate recycling," Sept. 23) as Liza Field claims in her recent commentary. I have decided to donate my body to the Maryland State Anatomy...

  • Don't waste time on non-violent offenders

    Don't waste time on non-violent offenders

    We have another head prosecutor creating still another task force or gun unit. Don't get me wrong, I agree in principle that targeting of violent, gun carrying offenders is a priority ("Baltimore prosecutors, police create new unit devoted to convicting gun offenders," Sept. 14). However, the problem...

  • Orioles offense is offensive (and not in a good way)

    Orioles offense is offensive (and not in a good way)

    I must respond to the recent coverage of diminishing fan support for our Birds ("Declining crowds at Camden Yards concern Orioles, fans and businesses," Sept. 21). My jaw drops when no mention is made of the Orioles' unexciting offense. Yes, unexciting. The pitchers should enter a class action...

  • Clinton-Trump debate was inconclusive

    As one of the millions who watched the Clinton-Trump debate, I cannot pick a winner ("Clinton, Trump supporters view debate through lens of a long campaign," Sept. 26) But two notable visuals stood out. It appeared that Donald Trump had a bad cold or was suffering from allergies. This worked to...

  • Trump is wrong about the U.S. nuclear deal with Iran

    Trump is wrong about the U.S. nuclear deal with Iran

    Your article "Szeliga, Van Hollen speak to B'Nai Israel forum" (Sept. 25) reports that a majority of Americans oppose the U.S. nuclear deal with Iran. As a lifelong supporter of Israel, I strongly support the agreement. Those who are familiar with the details of the negotiations leading up to it...

  • Time for Congress to stop hollering at CEOs and take action

    Time for Congress to stop hollering at CEOs and take action

    Last week, Congress engaged in a bipartisan barrage of CEO bashing. The Senate Banking Committee assailed Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf for pushing employees to create as many as 2 million bogus bank and credit card accounts without customer consent -- making customers pay overdraft and late fees...

  • Hillary Clinton's 'deplorables' comment is not entirely wrong

    Hillary Clinton's 'deplorables' comment is not entirely wrong

    At some point in every election cycle, a TV news anchor -- and more likely several of them -- will speak in reverential tones about "the wisdom of the American people." This expression of clichéd, lazy patriotism implies that the collective choice made by voters when they go to the polls is magically...

  • Clinton's personality, Trump's policy expertise open to debate

    Clinton's personality, Trump's policy expertise open to debate

    Tonight we will see Hillary Clinton battle Donald Trump in their first presidential debate. It's difficult to capture the otherworldliness of it all. Most of the commentary centers around Mr. Trump -- and for good reason. He's the X factor. Some see him as a brilliant, media-savvy disruptor, shaking...

    How did Tulsa officer know Crutcher was a bad dude?

    Dear Tulsa Police: I'm not here to debate the shooting of Terence Crutcher. His death a little over a week ago at the hands of one of your officers has, of course, created a firestorm. Betty Shelby has said she shot the 40-year-old man after he refused to communicate with her or obey her commands,...

  • Obama's trolling helped give rise to Trump

    Obama's trolling helped give rise to Trump

    Many people are to blame for the rise of Donald Trump as a political force, and most of them reside on my side of the aisle. But that story is familiar by now. And we'll be hearing a lot more about it. Should Mr. Trump lose, conservatives will be lucky if the ensuing riot of recriminations falls...
