  • For Carroll County students, lesson of 9/11 is summer enrichment

    For Carroll County students, lesson of 9/11 is summer enrichment
    Vivienne Sharp is too young to carry with her vivid memories of Sept. 11, 2001, but she had a solemn reaction as she walked in the rain last week amid the long benches of the Pentagon's memorial to those who died that day. "It is a beautiful piece of...
  • Why did the U.S. go to bat for Morsi?

    Why did the U.S. go to bat for Morsi?
    Mohamed Morsi holds a singular distinction. While president of Egypt, he was the world's only democratically elected leader to motivate more than 20 million of his people, one-quarter of the population, to sign a petition calling for his ouster....
  • Democrats are tougher than Republicans on border security

    Democrats are tougher than Republicans on border security
    In an otherwise unexceptional column on immigration reform, commentator Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. just can't restrain himself from reinforcing a totally false canard about Democrats and border security ("Immigration reform in sight," July 7). Mr. Ehrlich...
  • Deny terrorists their power

    Deny terrorists their power
    I have not seen the video. Not saying I won't, but for now, I've chosen not to. To rush online and seek out cellphone footage of two fanatics with machetes who butchered a British soldier in London on Wednesday, to watch them standing there, hands...
  • Festival Sampler

    'Modern Terrorism' Imagine "Homeland" with a laugh track. You cannot help but admire the nerve of playwright Jon Kern (a writer for "The Simpsons") in tackling such intensely emotional and divisive material, and fleshing out so vividly the three...
  • 'The Newsroom' recap, 'First Thing We Do, Let's Kill All The Lawyers'

    'The Newsroom' recap, 'First Thing We Do, Let's Kill All The Lawyers'
    The intro has been tweaked, but make no mistake, this is the same "Newsroom." Perhaps as a nod to some criticism of its first season, "The Newsroom" opened Season Two with a vastly less heavy-handed intro. Gone from the credits are the images of...
  • Goucher president helped foster understanding of issues [Letter]

    The July 3 story in the Towson Times about Sandy Unger's intention to resign as president of Goucher College at the end of the 2013-14 academic year reminded me of another of Mr. Unger's considerable accomplishments. Besides elevating Goucher's position...
  • North Laurel's Eaton enters delegate race in District 13

    North Laurel's Eaton enters delegate race in District 13
    The way Danny Eaton talks about politics is a bit like the way he explains the distinction between novel and memoir when discussing the book he's writing: "We are the sum total of all the parts of our life, so it's hard to write anything without having...
  • A government that lies to its citizens doesn't deserve to be called a democracy

    A government that lies to its citizens doesn't deserve to be called a democracy
    Ray McGovern's commentary on National Security Agency eavesdropping was a blast of fresh air ("Clean house over NSA spying," July 8). It was wonderful to read it on the same day I attended a vigil on behalf of Pfc. Bradley Manning at Fort Meade. What...
  • Congress' approval rating matters

    Congress' approval rating matters<!-- span class="opinionlabel">[OPINION]</span -->
    Much has been made of Congress' dismal approval ratings. A Rasmussen poll this summer found they had dipped below 10 percent. Sen. John McCain noted that Congress is less liked than a colonoscopy. While such ratings may be grist for late-night TV humor,...
  • The Bush library and the willing suspension of disbelief

    The Bush library and the willing suspension of disbelief
    To nobody's surprise, all four living former presidents were on their best behavior last week at the dedication of the library and museum named for the latest of them, George W. Bush, at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. The honoree's father,...
  • Can Hagel reshape the Pentagon?

    Can Hagel reshape the Pentagon?
    Chuck Hagel, the former Republican senator from Nebraska who survived a stormy confirmation hearing to become the new secretary of defense, had a coming-out party of sorts last week before the National Defense University, the government's graduate...
