  • Hippodrome production faithful to irreverent 'Mormon'

    Hippodrome production faithful to irreverent 'Mormon'
    Humor, unlike music, isn't a universal language. I mention this up front for the benefit of anyone who cannot find anything funny in religion, poverty, disease, genital mutilation or various other things targeted in "The Book of Mormon," the mega-...
  • 'Book of Mormon' packs fresh irreverence into traditional musical formula

    'Book of Mormon' packs fresh irreverence into traditional musical formula
    The curtain-raising scene of Jesus appearing "in ancient upstate New York" is the first little clue that "The Book of Mormon" is not your average Broadway musical. By the time the show ends, every politically incorrect button has been pushed, every...

    'Book of Mormon' restores one's faith in musical theater
    "The Book of Mormon" has to be the most subversive Broadway musical in history. All those other supposedly radical shows, the ones with nudity or such tough subjects as mental illness, just can't hold a candle to this insanely brilliant concoction about...
  • How Josh Gad was almost Cameron, and Sarah Palin led Jason Winer to '1600 Penn'

    How Josh Gad was almost Cameron,  and Sarah Palin led Jason Winer to '1600 Penn'
    Talk about instant success. Baltimore native Jason Winer doesn't even have a name yet for his Hollywood production company. But he and his two co-creators, "The Book of Mormon" Broadway star Josh Gad and former White House speechwriter Jon Lovett, already...
  • The media's religion deficit

    The media's religion deficit
    Evidence of big media's bias against religion that doesn't advance the secular and liberal agenda of the Democratic Party is beyond dispute. Any faith attached to a conservative agenda is to be ridiculed, stereotyped and misrepresented. Islam is a notable...
  • Romney breaks the stained-glass ceiling

    Romney breaks the stained-glass ceiling
    If Mitt Romney wins the presidential election this fall, he'll have Harry Reid partly to thank. The Republican presidential nominee and the Senate Democratic leader don't have much in common politically. But they're both members of the Church of Jesus...
  • Maryland's wealthy dig deep to donate to super PACS

    Maryland's wealthy dig deep to donate to super PACS
    There are big political contributors, and then there are BIG contributors. Count Baltimore trial lawyer and Orioles owner Peter Angelos among the latter. Angelos has donated at least $1.22 million, mostly to super PACs backing Democrats, according to the...
  • Marylanders get a taste of veto democracy

    Marylanders get a taste of veto democracy
    Marylanders will soon have an opportunity common in a country other than their own: the right to veto a legislature's product. This tool, the voter referendum, is an important right, since two cure-alls of the 1970s, campaign finance "reform" and strict...

    Jason Winer's '1600 Penn' sitcom wins midseason spot on NBC

  • Don't be so sure that Romney has changed his attitudes since high school

    The Sun May 12 editorial "Lesson of a high-school prank" concludes that "There's no evidence that [Mitt] Romneycurrently is either a bigot or a bully. If he is a changed man today, that is probably something the public would appreciate hearing about."...
  • Romney's religion: Who are evangelicals to question Mormonism?

    Romney's religion: Who are evangelicals to question Mormonism?
    Jokes about polygamy and funny long underwear aside, Mitt Romney's Mormon faith has not been, and will not become, a factor in the presidential campaign of 2012. I have a friend who wishes that were not so. She thinks it's creepy that Mormons comb...
