  • American Legion Riders maintain memorial sign, plant flower bed

    The American Legion Riders, Slate Ridge Post 182, in conjunction with fallen Marine Sgt. Michael Heede's family and friends, have undertaken the task of maintaining and planting a flower bed around the memorial sign honoring the fallen Marine at the...
  • Remembering Harford's military men and women who died serving their country since 9/11

    Remembering Harford's military men and women who died serving their country since 9/11
    Since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and the following wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, men and women across the country — and Harford County — have bravely sacrificed their lives to fight for the rights we as Americans have every day....
  • Tired of unfair attacks on Republicans couched in 9/11 remembrance

    During the McCarthy hearings, Army counsel Joseph Welch finally had enough and asked Sen. Joseph McCarthy if he had no sense of decency. I ask the same of The Sun's Dan Rodricks and Jean Marbella for their columns of Sept. 11. Instead of reflecting on the...
  • Rodricks provides the most thoughtful commentary on 9/11

    On the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, I watched the Ground Zero commemoration ceremony — or all of it that NBC was willing to show us — I read the Baltimore Sun, and I watched President Barack Obama's speech at the...
  • The Sun: Mouthpiece for the military-industrial complex?

    Since its takeover by the Tribune Corporation, The Sun almost always features some trivial local matter on its front page. But whenever there's a story that might help to move public opinion toward war with Iran, it's dramatically emblazoned at the top of...
  • Murder trial of city officer begins Wednesday

    Two Baltimore police sergeants are prepared to testify that a colleague, Gahiji Tshamba, appeared to be "under the influence of alcohol" after he unloaded his service weapon into an unarmed Marine last year outside a Mount Vernon bar, prosecutors said...
  • Overstated Iranian 'threat' puts U.S. on path to war

    Overstated Iranian 'threat' puts U.S. on path to war
    A neocon joke, at the beginning of the Iraq war, was: "Anyone can go to Baghdad. Real men go to Tehran." It wasn't funny then, and it isn't funny now. Unfortunately, those "real men" who want to wage war on Iran are making so much noise that they may...
  • Ron Paul, the anti-war candidate

    Ron Paul, the anti-war candidate
    Voters who are weary of endless war may have no choice at the presidential level next November. This is a very large group to be denied a vote on a key issue. A CNN/ORC poll released in November found that 68 percent of Americans opposed the war in...
  • For at-risk students, veteran mentors are a phone call away

    For at-risk students, veteran mentors are a phone call away
    Equipped with a flip phone and 400 free minutes, each member of a group of truant students at Carver Vocational Technical High School knows that at any moment a call could come that changes his or her day — or life. The Baltimore students are...
  • Brown comes out swinging against Romney

    Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown stepped into the role of surrogate for President Obama Monday as he joined in a conference call to denounce former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's record on veterans' issues, the federal budget and the GOP presidential...
  • Time to leave Iraq

    Time to leave Iraq
    President Barack Obama's announcement Friday that American troops will be out of Iraq by the end of the year was greeted with jeers in Congress and on the presidential campaign trail from Republicans who said the U.S. was ignominiously bowing to...
  • Iraq withdrawal: An end to the nonsense talk of 'American empire'

    Iraq withdrawal: An end to the nonsense talk of 'American empire'
    And so it ends. The United States is leaving Iraq. I'm solidly in the camp that sees this as a strategic blunder. Iraqi democracy is fragile and Iran's desire to undermine it is strong. Also, announcing our withdrawal is a weird way to respond to a...
