    Riding to the rescue: Gentle Giants strives to give draft horses a new lease on life

    Consumer advocates fear that more traditional banks will be offering payday loans
    If you are offered a short-term advance on your paycheck at a triple-digit interest rate, you might think you're being pitched a payday loan — a product that's basically banned in Maryland and other states with rate caps. But what if that deal came...

    Lt. Gov. Brown's furry future in-law
    On the same day that Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown announced his engagement to Karmen Bailey Walker, theft charges were dropped against Walker’s sister, Karen Yvette Bailey. Coincidence? Well, yeah, probably. I love a good scandal as much as the next...

    Who's pretending Marta Mossburg is running for mayor?
    You'd think recent indictments in the Bob Ehrlich robocall case would have scared off political dirty tricksters. That doesn't appear to be the case. Near as I can tell, Sun op-ed columnist Marta Mossburg is not running for mayor. Nor is she changing the...

    Rad Bromance: When Lady Gaga and Van Halen collide
    The hook is simple: Five, all-male, musically inclined Lady Gaga fans convert the pop queen's four-on-the-floor anthems into glam rock and name it Rad Bromance. It's a flashy act, but strip away the glitter and lead singer Ryan Shtainhorn's skin-tight...

    Rome Cee's 'By Your Side': No definitive answers and better for it
    It's an argument always heard in rap-talk: Where's that hip-hop with substance? Surely that question is followed with complaints about Waka Flocka Flame (seriously, his name comes up every time) and other swag/money/women-first artists. I love that type...
  • Maryland ranked last in personal freedom

    Maryland ranked last in personal freedom
    Maryland has earned yet another dubious distinction: The lowest-ranked state for personal freedom in the country.   A recent study, "Freedom in the 50 states," from the market-oriented Mercatus Center at George Mason University faults Maryland's strict...
