  • Editorial polls seem out of whack

    The results of The Sun's "What Maryland thinks" polls seem so out of tune with other polls' results. The first one I noticed asked the question if Hillary Clinton had done a good job as secretary of state. The results were overwhelmingly negative....
  • The Scouts and gays

    The Scouts and gays
