    Sports columnist: A moment that wrote itself

    Obama evolves, with a nudge from Biden

  • Frustration is understandable, voting third party is not

    I agree with Howard Bluth's frustrations over the obscene inequalities of wages, unemployment remedies, the continuous-without-break money chase, the influence of money in politics, etc., but I differ with his remedy of not exercising his franchise, and...

    The difference 537 votes make
    Even the most ardent fans of Mitt Romney ought to take the latest of President Barack Obama's reelection ads to heart. Here's its point: 537. That's the number of votes (along with a favorable Supreme Court ruling) that decided who won Florida — and...
  • Eagle Archive: For people who want to make history, Election Day is your chance

    As the 2012 presidential campaign soldiers on toward its final days, no one seems at a loss for an opinion on the outcome. Since 2010 in Maryland, we don't have to wait until the first Tuesday in November to vote. Early voting centers — in...
