  • Voting for the Republican, by default

    I sympathize with the letter Dovey Kahn wrote in today's Baltimore Sun ("Obama by default," Sept. 6). Just as some will hold their nose and vote for President Obama in 2012, I held my nose and voted for John McCain in 2008, and I'll likely be holding my...
  • September 11: Ten years later, a different world

    Maybe it was the graphic-novel clarity of the images, the perfect geometry of the World Trade Center towers against the flat blue sky, the orange fireballs that blossomed from the puncture wounds. Or perhaps it was the cascading of horrors, a plane...
  • GOP has many lines of attack against Obamacare

    GOP has many lines of attack against Obamacare
    "In my first term, we passed health care reform," President Barack Obama joked this spring. "In my second term, I guess I'll pass it again." Thanks to the Supreme Court, President Obama can take that item off his agenda. But Chief JusticeJohn G....
  • Social Security sets off sparks

    Social Security sets off sparks
    If there was still any doubt that Social Security is the proverbial third rail of American politics — that is, potentially deadly to the touch — Gov. Rick Perry has provided the electrifying answer: You don't mess with the monthly checks,...

  • Obama's stimulus created jobs, whether Republicans like it or not

    At a recent debate sponsored by the tea party, Texas Gov. Rick Perry stated that the Obama administration's economic stimulus program resulted in zero jobs. Rep. Eric Cantor has also been quoted as saying essentially the same thing. So I proceeded to...
  • Social Security is not a 'Ponzi scheme'

    Letter writer Iver Mindel calls Social Security a "Ponzi scheme" because the scam invented by Charles Ponzi, for whom the fraud is named, collapsed when he could no longer find enough new investors to pay of his previous victims ("Ponzi would be jealous...
  • Cheering for the death penalty: a clarifying moment

    Cheering for the death penalty: a clarifying moment
    And they raised a cheer for death. It was a chilling moment, but also a clarifying one in that it validated the grimmest suspicions about at least some of those who support capital punishment. That support, after all, is often framed in terms of high...
  • Some belated praise for CNN's debate partnership with Tea Party

    Some belated praise for CNN's debate partnership with Tea Party
    I am only about 2,000 news cycles behind with this post. But I was working on another project since Monday and did not have time to write about the GOP candidates debate hosted by CNN and the Tea Party Express. I thought I would get over it, but I...
  • Republicans are running on policy issues, not religion

    I have to take issue with Susan Reimer's recent column ("Are they running for president or pastor?" Sept. 19). One particular statement is such a stretch it reminds me of the blatantly biased columns in my college paper many years ago. Ms. Reimer states:...
  • National group to aid in-state tuition repeal

    The Washington group Judicial Watch filed papers Thursday to intervene in the lawsuit over legislation to extend in-state tuition discounts to illegal immigrants. The conservative group, which bills itself as a watchdog on immigration, can bring money...
  • Perry is right: Dream Act opponents are heartless

    I'd like to quote Texas Gov. Rick Perry to all those backward thinking demagogues in Maryland, both Democratic and Republican, who promulgated the referendum against the Maryland Dream Act: "If you say that we should not educate children who have come...
