Why, Dallas Dance, why?

During Dallas Dance’s incarceration, he should check out a laptop and write his book: “Why I Did It” (“Dallas Dance was going places, now he’s going to jail,” April 20). What would prompt a rising star to sacrifice career and demoralize a family? Since he had first-hand experience in this practice,...

  • A child's view of Baltimore integration

    A child's view of Baltimore integration

    I enjoyed the article, “Area students use video to explore civil rights era” (April 18) by Talia Richman in which she chronicled the efforts by students from the Park School and City Neighbors High, apparently partly under the auspices of the “Baltimore Civil Rights Experience” to learn more about...

  • More about North Korea, less about Stormy

    More about North Korea, less about Stormy

    Stormy Daniels’ strip club appearances in Baltimore made the front page of The Baltimore Sun (“In Baltimore, in the flesh, Stormy Daniels,” April 20). Mike Pompeo’s historic meeting with Kim Jong Un in North Korea is covered on page 8 (“Trump leaves open possibility of bailing on meeting with Kim,”...

  • Children have a right not to be forced into marriage

    Children have a right not to be forced into marriage

    Diana Philip’s commentary, “Marriage is a human right, don’t strip it from teens” (April 16), mischaracterizes the three-year campaign to end child marriage in Maryland and ignores the compelling drivers behind it. The Tahirih Justice Center, which has served Maryland survivors of violence since...

  • Aggressively liberal professors are pushing conservative students toward Trump

    Aggressively liberal professors are pushing conservative students toward Trump

    For the past four years at Loyola University Maryland I have come to find lifelong friendships; amazing professors, who were instrumental in my being able to go to law school next year; and, by the grace of God, I was even able to find a date. I was also able to discover the reason why Donald Trump...

    Baltimore's Jenny Owens: good boss, good person

    My first real job came a few months after I started grad school in 2013. A professor told me about an opening at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, where one of her former students was hiring. “I think you and Jenny would be a great fit,” she said. I applied, interviewed, was quickly offered...

    Witcover: The rule of law, and of sanity, in Trumpland

    With our executive branch in the hands of Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled legislative branch now essentially subservient to him, the judicial branch and the Justice Department now remain the principal defenders of the rule of law in this country. Many federal and state judges have rebuked...

  • Goldberg: America not as intolerant as we make it out to be

    Goldberg: America not as intolerant as we make it out to be

    I don't normally watch the GLAAD Media Awards. Not that there's anything wrong with them. GLAAD, by the way, originally stood for "Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation" before the organization declared that GLAAD was its name and not an acronym. But I did see a video of Britney Spears' acceptance...

    Pitts: 'Excuses for Donald Trump'

    "We kind of gave him -- ‘All right, you get a mulligan. You get a do-over here.’" -- Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, on the white evangelical response to Donald Trump's alleged tryst with a porn star "He's new at government, and so therefore I think that he is learning as he goes."...

  • Oriole Park is greener than ever — so brag a little

    Oriole Park is greener than ever — so brag a little

    The assumption is that a local paper wants to make its city shine. Accepting this premise, why would The Baltimore Sun bury on the fifth page of the sports section an announcement that Oriole Park at Camden Yards was the first Major League Baseball stadium to win the Leadership in Energy and Environmental...

    Do not support O.C. attack on wind energy

    Here are the top 10 reasons why people should not sign the petition recently sponsored by Ocean City to extend the distance planned wind turbines would have to be located off the coast of Maryland to beyond 26 miles (“Ocean City’s effort to keep windmills far offshore fails as Maryland delegates...

  • Psst, great things are happening in Baltimore

    Psst, great things are happening in Baltimore

    I was very proud, as a Park School alum, to read Talia Richman’s article about the work that Park and City Neighbors High School are doing to learn about the civil rights movement in Baltimore (“Baltimore public and private school students team up to explore the local civil rights movement,” April...

  • 'Free' college isn't free

    'Free' college isn't free

    Just in case no one realizes it, "free college" is not free (“Maryland proposal for free community college follows national trend. But results aren’t clear,” April 13). Someone has to pay for it. That someone would be the hardworking taxpayers of Maryland. College is not a requirement for being...

    Don't allow Congress to chop SNAP

    Thank you so much for highlighting the erroneous reasoning behind new efforts to create work requirements for Americans collecting SNAP (food stamp) benefits (“Workfare push suffers from a flawed premise,” April 13). SNAP is an incredibly effective program that lifted more than 8 million people...
