    Transportation taxes again?  [Editorial]

    Marijuana puts families at risk [Letter]
    It's refreshing to read that someone feels the same about marijuana and addiction and is willing to say it, too ("A letter to my son on marijuana," Feb. 16)! I am a middle-aged woman who grew up in the '80s, and pot was at every party, school dance or...

    Former Maryland Rep. Helen Delich Bentley has been through many receiving lines in her decades as a journalist, legislator and consultant. There have been campaigns for office and campaigns for causes. But this round of handshaking, hugging and thanks...

    Toward a more genteel governor's race  [Editorial]
    Some of the candidates for governor are taking offense at Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's use of a "tracker" to videotape what one of his rivals, Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler, says on the campaign trail. Where have they been? This tactic, while a bit...
  • Vouchers: an escape for few — at the expense of many [Letter]

    Vouchers: an escape for few — at the expense of many  [Letter]
    Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. apparently just doesn't get it. He wants the NAACP ("An open letter to the NAACP," Nov. 17) to support government funding of a few young people so they can escape their communities like the Arbutus he used to call home. Some of us...
