  • Au revoir to more than a father-in-law

    Over the years, I've asked a lot of men about their fathers-in-law: whether they get along with them, whether they play a significant role in their lives. These conversations took place over a beer, or on a fishing trip, maybe at an Orioles game. I...
  • Martin O'Malley forged his leadership style through trial, error of political office

    Martin O'Malley forged his leadership style through trial, error of political office
    Occasionally on the campaign trail, Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley gets the rare chance to talk about something other than politics - such as in a restaurant during a recent Sunday swing through the Eastern Shore. "How's the band doing?" asked Jesse...
  • The deconstruction of Harriet Miers is filled with sexism

    When the first news stories about Harriet Miers' nomination to the Supreme Court all used the same quote from President Bush describing her as "a pit bull in size 6 shoes," I decided I would listen carefully to this debate. Even before all the...
  • Steel yourself for an adventure in lively Pittsburgh

    It used to be when you mentioned Pittsburgh, the uninitiated conjured images of belching smokestacks, die-hard football fans and snow. This year, Pittsburgh's getting national attention only for the Steelers' losing streak and the city's budget woes -...
  • Black experience in Washington takes the spotlight

    Anyone intimately familiar with the nation's capital knows of its significant African-American population, a community both highly visible and deeply entrenched. Yet rarely has the district's longtime status as a hub of black history and culture been...
  • Mfume might be glad to go, but the NAACP will miss him

    KWEISI MFUME had that "Lyndon Johnson" gleam in his eye. The man whose name means "conquering son of kings" strode yesterday into the press room of the NAACP's national headquarters to a welcome fit for, well, a conquering son of kings. The assembled...

  • A defining experience for a young generation

    Eighteen teens sit at their desks in full first-day-of-school awkwardness: Eyes are wandering, hands fidgeting, yawns are being stifled. Within minutes, the classroom at Notre Dame Preparatory School electrifies, backs straighten to attention, voices...
  • Iraq prison story tough to hold off on, CBS says

    Last Wednesday's broadcast of 60 Minutes II on CBS included photographs of grinning Army Reserve troops from a Maryland-based unit giving "thumbs up" signs next to captive Iraqi men forced into humiliating sexual poses. Another picture displayed a...
  • Rather's doubters unmoved

    Dan Rather's forceful defense last Friday of a CBS News story about gaps in President Bush's service in the Air National Guard does not appear to have assuaged those who doubt its accuracy. The report relied upon documents whose authenticity was...
  • Rather, CBS fight allegations of bias

    CBS News anchor Dan Rather has always loved to be in the thick of the big story - whether that story was the Watergate scandal, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, or as recently as Labor Day, a hurricane bearing down on the United States. He finds...
  • Rather built a hard-news, but folksy image

    He was always a hard-news guy, an old-style, old-school reporter who once told Larry King that "danger is my business." Aggressive, intense, confrontational, folksy and sometimes wacky - that's been the image of Dan Rather for more than 40 years. His...
