  • Buck Showalter pulls All-Star prank on Darren O'Day

    Buck Showalter pulls All-Star prank on Darren O'Day
      I wonder if Darren O'Day's heart has started back up yet. Because when the Orioles' reliever was pranked recently by manager Buck Showalter for a Major League Baseball Fan Cave video, you wondered if the poor guy was going to need a defibrillator...
  • GOP has many lines of attack against Obamacare

    GOP has many lines of attack against Obamacare
    "In my first term, we passed health care reform," President Barack Obama joked this spring. "In my second term, I guess I'll pass it again." Thanks to the Supreme Court, President Obama can take that item off his agenda. But Chief JusticeJohn G....
  • Romney's taxing sophistry

    Romney's taxing sophistry
    Remember in March, when former senator Rick Santorum got a lot of grief for saying that Mitt Romney was the "worst Republican" in the country to challenge President Barack Obama on health care reform? Well, turns out he was right. That was evident...
  • Remember when Republicans supported the individual mandate?

    I read with interest columnist Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s commentary regarding the recent Supreme Court decision on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("Constitutional — but contemptible," July 9). I am still confused — indeed...
  • So many financial scandals raises the question of whether ethics classes work

    Ethics professors at business schools aren't short of teachable moments these days. This year alone, a Goldman Sachs' executive announced his resignation in The New York Times, outraged by managers' callous talk of "ripping off clients," whom they...

    Controversial 'Fifty Shades' trilogy reaches historic sales milestone
    The racy "Fifty Shades" book series by E. L. James has been causing a stir since hitting shelves in April with its erotic plot line and subsequent ban in various libraries across the country. In Harford County, the public library system made the decision...
  • Best and worst of this year's presidential ads

    Today's topic: the billions (yes, with a "b") that will be spent on advertising in this year's presidential and congressional campaigns, and what kind of messages that money is sending. Like jazz, blues and musical comedy, the political ad is a...
  • Ehrlich column on taxes marred by sophistry, false comparisons

    ColumnistRobert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s recent commentary on taxes supposedly provided a lesson in Economics 101 ("When taxes go up, taxpayers go elsewhere," July 1). Unfortunately, he told only part of the story. His first example, concerning the supposed...
  • Biased media let Obama off easy

    I find it interesting that Jules Witcover can write a whole column on Mitt Romney calling mandatory health insurance a tax and his aide calling it a penalty ("Blame the candidate, not the campaign," July 10). No matter what you call it, most will not be...
  • The pressure's on, and the editor's gone

    Over at Poynter.org Craig Silverman has published an astute article about a clutch of recent cases of fabrication by young journalists, looking for the common elements. He finds them: carelessness about sourcing, willingness to manipulate quotes and...
  • Obama and Romney jockey for the Olympic vote

    Fresh off his trip abroad, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney accused President Barack Obama of undermining America's competitiveness in international sports competitions. "We have a president who apologizes for America's athletic...
