    For us aging Vietnam War protesters, the secret domestic surveillance revealed by Edward Snowden, a young former CIA contractor, is like a bad flashback. In 1968, Lyndon Johnson demanded that something be done to curb the demonstrations that were...

    So much for messianic leadership
    Although there's still a great deal to be learned about the scandals and controversies swirling around the White House like so many ominous dorsal fins in the surf, the nature of President Barack Obama's bind is becoming clear. The best defenses of his...

    What does the tea party say after Okla. tornadoes?

    Cummings a disgrace in Benghazi hearings
    The other day I sat down to watch some of the coverage of the Benghazi hearings and almost spit out my drink in utter dismay at the ignorance and incompetence of Rep. Elijah Cummings ("U.S. diplomat details attack in Benghazi," May 9). Now, mind you...
  • IRS follows Obama's lead

    IRS follows Obama's lead
    Of course the president deserves some of the blame. Yes, it's extremely unlikely he ordered the IRS to discriminate against tea party, pro-life or Jewish groups opposed to his agenda (though why anyone should take his word for it is beyond me). And...
  • Canavan is the right choice [Editorial]

    The selection of Barbara Canavan to be the interim superintendent of Harford County Public Schools was a very good choice. In some ways, it's perhaps a brilliant choice. Time, as it always does, will say for sure, but it certainly seems that Canavan is...
  • Md. National Guard preparing for final Afghan deployment

    As the Maryland National Guard prepares for what could be its final deployment to Afghanistan, its commander sees a "pivotal point" in the nation's history. More than a decade of deployments to Afghanistan, Iraq and other battlegrounds since Sept. 11,...
  • National tour of 'American Idiot' hits Baltimore

    National tour of 'American Idiot' hits Baltimore
    “American Idiot,” the 2010 Broadway hit musical — the first punk rock opera, really — now at the Hippodrome, paints a searing portrait of restless, reckless youth, with all the sex, drugs and violence you’d expect from a...
