    Seth Meyers on best SNL memories and making it in latenight

    Md. GOP considering open primary
    The Maryland Republican Party is weighing whether to open its primary elections to independent voters, a plan some envision delivering statewide victories that have largely eluded the party. A contingent frustrated with consistent Republicans losses...
  • Justice and liberal agendas served

    Justice and liberal agendas served
    The Sun's recent editorial regarding the acquittal of George Zimmerman ("No justice," July 16) ranks up there with the one years ago where you railed on about the problem with the death penalty without once mentioning a victim or victim's family. Anyone...

    Trayvon Martin and liberal leaders' selective outrage
