    Lemony Snicket & others back Occupy movement

  • The occupation will be televised, at least on the Web

    The scene was more or less what I'd expected: lots of tents, lots of animated conversations among bohemian types who hadn't had enough sleep. But something was missing. "I didn't hear any drumming," I remarked as Robert Brune and I made the drive back...
  • Memo to Occupiers: Government had big role in meltdown

    Occupy Wall Street protesters need to look at a little more history when accusing the greedy banking institutions of creating the housing bubble and the global meltdown of the financial world. The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) regulations of 1995...
  • Government's job: stay out of the way

    Government's job: stay out of the way
    For the current election cycle, "jobs" is the new black. It's the buzzword that transcends the left and the right. From the parties of Occupy Wall Street to the tea parties of last year, and from the Republican Party to the Democratic Party to the Worker'...
  • 'Occupy' memo could discourage victims from reporting assaults

    Efforts by the Occupy Baltimore protest group to evolve into a self-contained, self-governing community have erupted into controversy with the distribution of a pamphlet that victim advocates and health workers fear discourages victims of sexual...

  • Mixing it up in Montreal

    Mixing it up in Montreal
    On an afternoon in early October, I sat in a pew in an old church and took in Mass. A woman dressed all in white sang a soothing hymn, and then a priest in an intricate, green robe read from a prepared sermon; behind him, an imposing pipe organ...
  • Occupy Wall Street needs to find its voice

    All the "Occupy Wall Street" events around the country lack leadership and focus. It's one massive camp-out loaded with energy but devoid of message. I've been waiting for a collective demand to emerge, yet nothing happens. I empathize with the...
  • Who will stick up for the wealthiest 1 percent? City man volunteers, but finds no takers

    I, along with many others I'm sure, would like to know where to go and what to do in order to oppose the Occupy Wall Street crowd that is establishing itself in various cities around the country, including Baltimore. Somebody needs to stand up in...
  • Redistricting: Tired of business-as-usual politics

    Four years ago, Barack Obama was elected president because Americans wanted a change from business-as-usual politics. Two years ago, the Republicans were swept into power in the U.S. House of Representatives in part because business-as-usual was...
  • Tea party, 'Occupy' don't stack up with '60s protests

    Tea party, 'Occupy' don't stack up with '60s protests
    Once again, rage in the streets has captured the nation's attention, as it did during the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights revolution of the 1960s. Now it is the turn of the tea party and Occupy Wall Street movements. But the latter two have not...
  • Protesters wrong to point fingers at police

    Kudos to Michael DeCicco's letter pointing out the fallacy of the Occupy Wall Street protesters and their complaints about police ("Don't blame police raids for movement's failure," Nov. 22). As someone who has lived below the poverty level the past...
