  • London Olympic security foul-up: Blame crony government, not privatization

    London Olympic security foul-up: Blame crony government, not privatization
    It's hip these days for everyone from world leaders to the Occupy Wall Street crowd to attack free-market, limited-government capitalism as wild and in need of control because it's supposedly the cause of the world economic collapse. This is a myth. It'...
  • London gears up for Olympics as only the British can

    London gears up for Olympics as only the British can
    The Olympic torch came to Brixton on Thursday, and so did Amy Cohen. She lived in the South London district until recently, a job change and the continuing financial crisis sending her to live back home with her parents at age 34. Among the throngs who...

    Different continent, same candidate: Romney can put his foot in his mouth abroad just as well as at home
    For years, presidents and presidential hopefuls have gone abroad to cast themselves as knowledgeable on world affairs, counting on friendly receptions wherever they go as a respite from the slings and arrows they routinely encounter in campaigning at...
  • Romney was right: The Olympics are a hot mess

    Romney was right: The Olympics are a hot mess
    Mitt Romney and I are competing in a new Olympic event that involves proffering unvarnished criticism of the Olympics themselves. We're the Lochte and Phelps of this event -- appearing united when necessary and when it serves us both, and appearing...
  • The really outrageous part of Romney's foreign trip

    It's curious that Mitt Romney's fundraiser in Israel in itself has raised so little commentary, much less criticism, in mainstream news media ("'Culture' comment follows Romney," July 31). If he or another presidential candidate had held one in any...

    Timonium man hopes London Olympics recall 'Queen Mother of U.S tennis'
    A Timonium man is anxiously awaiting the weekend's mixed doubles tennis finals at the London Olympics in hopes that his grandmother — the last gold medalist in the event nearly 90 years ago — is recognized by event organizers for her...
  • Sometimes, you almost want to feel sorry for Mitt Romney

    Sometimes, you almost want to feel sorry for Mitt Romney
    I am starting to feel sorry for Mitt Romney. On an international tour to three countries, he made news in two of them by dissing the London Olympics and infuriating the Palestinians. The poor guy -- for months, people have complained that he never says...
  • London Olympics close with more music and much praise

    London Olympics close with more music and much praise
    It must be true: All good things indeed must come to an end — a fireworks-strafing, confetti-showering and rock-god-reviving end if you're talking about the Summer Olympics that concluded Sunday. "We lit the flame, and we lit up the world," said...
  • Wikileaks' wings are clipped

    Julian Assange, the peripatetic and elusive founder of the whistleblower web site Wikileaks, put himself at the center of a fine bit of political theater over the weekend when he used his fugitive status at the Ecuadorean embassy in London to demand the...
  • Havre de Grace: Celebrate Arbor Day in Havre de Grace – a Tree City USA

    Your papers, please: Arizona, immigration and the welfare state
    With the Supreme Court taking up Arizona's "show me your papers" immigration law, we're once again thrust into a useful debate over the role of the government and the obligations of the citizen -- and non-citizen. Rather than come at it from the usual...
  • Robert B. Reich: Why Europe's double dip could lead to one here

    Robert B. Reich: Why Europe's double dip could lead to one here
    Europe is in recession. Portugal, Italy and Greece are basket cases. The British and Spanish economies have contracted for the last two quarters. It seems highly likely that France and Germany are in a double dip as well. Why should we care? Because a...
