    Trayvon Martin: Give it a rest

  • The folly of 'Stand Your Ground' laws

    The folly of 'Stand Your Ground' laws
    I really identify with the contributor who compared the George Zimmerman verdict to the lynchings of the past ("The new lynching," July 27). The "Stand Your Ground" law in Florida and other states enables people carrying a gun to be the judge, jury and...

  • What Obama has accomplished

    I disagree strongly with those who say President Obama has done nothing ("Choice is clear: Obama has to go," Sept. 7). The president approved the raid that led to the death of Osama bin Laden, withdrew our troops from Iraq, and reversed the so-called...
  • Pro-Azerbaijani letter is an outrage

    In his letter "The U.S. should back off its criticism of Azerbaijan's handling of the Safarov case" (Sept. 10), Emil Israfilbek displays very concerning signs of lack of compassion and understanding for human rights, by writing that he is unable to...

    UMBC dramatizes a 1998 murder and its aftermath
