In response to the March 15 column, "Contraceptive isn't bad, no matter what GOP candidates tell," the writer probably meant "mandate," not "contraceptive."

The article "Law, order, free speech" (March 25) prompts this response: What is distressing to this reader is that a group of religious fanatics who oppose abortion are awarded (by a federal Judge) a "settlement" of $385,000 for their despicable behavior....

I want to thank The Sun for running on page one last Sunday the story about the abortion protesters' arrest in Harford County in 2008 ("State trooper wanted protesters to 'rot,'" March 24).
We have many freedoms being eroded daily by misguided police...

Voter turnout for Tuesday's presidential primary in Maryland was expected to be the lowest in at least 30 years, state election officials said.

In a March 29 letter to the editor, Sandra Nettina assures us that "GOP candidates object to mandates, not contraception," which is good news. Perhaps if they really object to mandates, they will do something about the mandate taxpayers face to pay real...

I find Sy Steinberg's letter to the editor ("Protesters rewarded for disruptive behavior," March 29) about the settlement given abortion protesters to be very disturbing. Mr. Steinberg writes that "the protesters are inciting the public, who are...

Republican Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett, who has represented Maryland's 6th District for nearly two decades, lost his bid for an 11th term Tuesday to a Democratic businessman who cast the closely watched race as a battle of different economic visions for the...

The vitriol is worse than I ever recall. Worse than the Palin-induced smarm of 2008. Worse than the Swift-boat lies of 2004. Worse, even, than the anything-goes craziness of 2000 and its ensuing bitterness.
It's almost a civil war. I know families in...

Congratulations, ladies. You kept the barbarians from the gate.
On Tuesday, Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri, who famously said that a woman's reproductive system shuts down during "legitimate rape" and prevents conception, lost by 15 points to incumbent Sen....

Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett repudiated fellow Republican Rep. Todd Akin’s comments on rape Tuesday, while his campaign manager called an attempt by Maryland Democrats to tie Bartlett to the controversy “disgusting.”

Missouri is a long way from Maryland, so residents can be forgiven for never having heard of Rep. Todd Akin prior to this week. But when the socially conservative Republican Senate candidate suggested that the victims of "legitimate rape" rarely get...

Rep. Todd Akin, the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate from Missouri, has shown once again how the Republican Party has been taken over by its most extreme elements ("Akin's rape comments elicit anger," Aug. 21).
Mr. Akin claims there is difference between...
