  • The painful naivete of Ron Paul

    The painful naivete of Ron Paul
    So now it's Ron Paul's turn. The diminutive Texas libertarian is poised in the latest polls to win the Iowa caucuses. Obviously, this would be rough news for Newt Gingrich — who's in third place and falling — and very good news for Mitt...
  • Uncertain year ahead for U.S. stocks

    Uncertain year ahead for U.S. stocks

    In battle for young voters, Romney should play it uncool
    President Barack Obama's re-election largely hinges on his ability to play young voters for suckers -- again -- and whether Mitt Romneywill let him. In 2008, Mr. Obama won the youth vote by better than a 2-1 margin, 66 percent to 32 percent. Even more...
  • Ron Paul's anti-war stance doesn't make up for his extremism on everything else

    Granted, Democrats may be distressed that Barack Obama has not performed better as an anti-war president ("Ron Paul: The anti-war candidate," Jan. 2). But before people jump ship and vote for Ron Paul because he is "anti-war," they should check out the...

    Memo to the president: why being 'on the right track' isn't enough
    Dear Mr. President: So far your election strategy can best be summed up as: "We're on the right track, my economic policies are working, we still have a long way to go, but stick with me and you'll be fine." I'm afraid this won't be enough to win you...
  • 'Next economy' envisioned for Baltimore region

    'Next economy' envisioned for Baltimore region
    A new report being released today calls on the Baltimore region to rethink economic development, pointing to a worrying trend: a mounting share of low-wage jobs shutting more and more residents out of the middle class. The number of jobs in largely low-...
  • Institutions organize to boost Baltimore's 'next economy'

    The Annie E. Casey Foundation and other Baltimore institutions are organizing to help accelerate the growth of well-paying jobs and make sure more residents are qualified to land them, building on the recommendations of a new study that envisions the...
  • Setting the record straight on Ron Paul

    In response to the recent letter written by Elizabeth Fixsen ("Paul is anti-war — but otherwise extremist," Jan. 5), I suggest that Ms. Fixsen check her facts. She states that Ron Paul is anti-abortion. The fact is Mr. Paul, a physician, does not...

    100 things we love about Baltimore -- Printable list
    A moody tavern. An extraordinary cocktail. The easy lapping of bay water against the banks of the Inner Harbor. Duckpin lanes. Old Bay. Art in an otherwise empty storefront. For all of these things, and for so many more, people love Baltimore. People feel...
  • Automakers look to Obama for aid

    Detroit automakers and their allies in Congress said yesterday that Barack Obama's victory could help U.S. automakers line up federal funding needed for them to survive the current economic slump. Obama made it clear during his campaign that he...
