  • Wanted: a devil's advocate for the FISA court

    Wanted: a devil's advocate for the FISA court
    The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, a tribunal that oversees government eavesdropping, is a strange judicial creation. It lacks many of the usual features of a court. Its proceedings are secret. Its rulings are secret. But the strangest missing...

    This letter was sent to Del. Samuel Rosenberg, a Democrat representing District 41-Baltimore, in the Maryland General Assembly. A copy was provided for publication. I am writing this email to you because you need to be aware, if not already, what your...

  • Don't ignore Democrats' role in the government shutdown

     Don't ignore Democrats' role in the government shutdown
    For Thomas F. Schaller to have written a more partisan op-ed ("Government shutdown is Republicans' fault — period," Oct. 1) would be nearly impossible. I can't help but notice his lack of intellectual honestly with regard to the political behavior...

     Compromising over shutting down the government would set a bad precedent for the future
    While I agree with the notion that everyone in Congress should be out of their job come the next election, I fail to see the logic behind the theory that "both sides are to blame." True, the supporters of the budget, mainly Democrats, are not...

     A high school view of Washington's gridlock
