    McAfee ran the community-oriented Sunday afternoon softball league

    On sequestration, Obama becomes extortionist in chief
    At the end of 1995 and stretching into January 1996, the federal government "shut down" because of an impasse between President Bill Clinton and House Republicans led by then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich. The issue was increased taxes vs. less spending....

  • The Carson monologue

    The Carson monologue
    Dr. Benjamin Carson, the eminent Johns Hopkins pediatric neurosurgeon, has received much attention over the years not only for his skills in the operating room but for what he has achieved beyond it. For many Baltimoreans, his story is a familiar one...

    Controversial address vaults Hopkins' Carson into political arena

  • The smell test: another sense lost to aging

    Just when we were getting our heads around the idea that many (if not most) of us will lose brain function as we age, there is news that another one of those physical gifts we take for granted is likely to leave us. Our sense of smell. It is a bit...
