    Family takes case of Md. man imprisoned in Cuba to public

    Steaming and boiling face off in annual crab cook-off
    Along most of America's coastline, crustaceans get boiled. Sometimes in plain old Yankee water. Sometimes in spicy Cajun stock. Whatever the liquid, there's a whole pot of it bubbling away. Whatever the seafood — Maine lobster, Carolina blue crab,...

    GOP presidential field outdoes itself again and again
    Well, it's about time. At last we have a candidate with the guts to close down our embassy in Iran were she elected president. Thank you, Michele Bachmann. Oh — and thank you Jimmy Carter as well, since he closed down the embassy there in 1980 in...

    Herman Cain is the flavor of the month, and those melt fast

    The bumper sticker political view of the foreign policy of our nation expressed by Daniel Hays in last week's edition of the Towson Times is a mystery to me.  His letter to the editor ("U.S. incursions overseas put our troops in danger," March 7, 2012)...

    Give pols a pass for verbal miscues
    My elementary school principal was fond of reminding his students that the last perfect person walked this Earth 2,000 years ago. (Note to the litigious types over at the ACLU: It was permissible to provide such insight in light of the school's...
  • Politics: A never-ending game of 'hot potato'

    Politics: A never-ending game of 'hot potato'
    Warning: What you are about to read is a deeply cynical view of the 2012 election. If you're looking for puppies and rainbows, check back with me another time. Many conservatives feel like this is the most important election in our lifetimes because we...

    Democrats are beginning to panic as we speed toward the midterm elections. They have good reason to get nervous as they ponder the spectacle - so unlikely a year or so ago - of being reduced once again to a minority in the House of Representatives. The...
  • Ron Paul, aka the invisible candidate

    A moment ago, I Googled "Ron Paul ignored by media" and came up with 9,222 links. That's a lot of stories about someone being ignored. Here's what happened. In last weekend's Iowa Straw Poll of GOP presidential candidates, the Texas congressman had an...
  • Road to energy independence goes through ANWR, Keystone

    Sometimes, it is worth our time to step back, to take the long view about seemingly intractable issues affecting our country. My long view begins with the gas line days of 1973-74, when a recently minted owner of a 1966 Ford Falcon began the daily...
