  • Get used to being watched

    Yesterday's mail brought a safety razor, a gift from those nice people at Gillette. I tried it out this morning, it is superior to my old one, and I will probably pay the extortionate price for replacement blades. But why, I wondered, were those nice...
  • Of "the" I sing

    At The Baltimore Sun we are scrupulous about referring to the Johns Hopkins University. That is not, as some may imagine, because we are truckling to the largest employer in the city (or to the likelihood that Baltimore will eventually change its name...

    Deja vu intelligence policy [Commentary]
    Fifty years ago, Harry Truman wrote an article in the Washington Post expressing his disappointment over what the Central Intelligence Agency had become. He had established the CIA in 1947 to provide his office with objective information. But it had...

  • 'Homeland' recap, 'The Yoga Play'

    'Homeland' recap, 'The Yoga Play'
    Spies, drones, runaways, yoga and kidnapping: episode five had it all. The episode was framed by Saul’s duck-hunting trip with the old boys network of DC. Invited by the White House chief of staff, Saul assumes that he was there to network with...

    Benghazi attack returns to haunt Hillary Clinton [Letter]
    The deadly 2012 attack by militants on U.S. government posts in Benghazi, Libya, was preventable according to a recently released report by the Senate Intelligence Committee, and it was the fault of the U.S. State Department for inadequate security...
  • 'Homeland' recap, 'Still Positive'

    'Homeland' recap, 'Still Positive'
    Still no word from Brody, but Episode 6 provided answers to the central mystery that has been bothering me since the beginning of the current season: Why should we care about Javadi? The episode picks up precisely where we left off, and the opening...
  • Ex-CIA lawyer John Rizzo defends 'enhanced interrogation techniques'

    Ex-CIA lawyer John Rizzo defends 'enhanced interrogation techniques'

  • 'Homeland' recap: 'A Red Wheelbarrow'

    'Homeland' recap: 'A Red Wheelbarrow'
    I have several friends who have given up on "Homeland." It’s true that Season 2 was clunky, overwrought, and loose with many details. We made fun of its many moments of melodramatic dialogue, terrible acting and difficult-to-believe plot twists....
  • It's only a game, until it isn't

    I guess it will happen at some point. A kid in Baltimore will come across a faded black-and-white picture, or notice all those blue #19 jerseys, and he won't quite believe it: "We had a football team before the Ravens?" Maybe it's already happened,...
  • 'Homeland' Season 2, Episode 8 recap

    'Homeland' Season 2, Episode 8 recap
    Do you remember the term "stress position?" It was part of the debate over the limits of interrogation in the war on terror. One such practice, apparently used by the KGB, leaves a prisoner forced to stand with no relief for up to a day. It's awful....
