    Take back the thermostat, ladies

    A few years ago, after a story made the rounds saying women are always freezing at the office because temperatures are set based on the metobolic rates of men (who naturally run hotter), I posted a picture on Facebook of my daughter and four of her buddies seated around a preschool table. “Proof...

    The reaction to Mary Bubala's question on WJZ says more about us than the question does about her

    “We have had three female, African-American mayors in a row. They were all passionate public servants. Two resigned, though. Is it a signal that a different kind of leadership is needed to move Baltimore City forward?” ­­— Mary Bubala, WJZ That’s the question that ended a Baltimore anchorwoman’s...

    Heave ho, Pugh's got to go

    Dear Mayor Pugh, I kind of felt for you when the news broke this week that you’d been slapped with a $500 fine for replacing your slate roof with asphalt shingles without permission — a no-no in your historic neighborhood. That just seemed like piling on given all else you’re dealing with right...

    As Taiwan's media flounders, so does its democracy

    For those of you horrified by the “sweat bees” story in your social media feeds this week — the one about the woman who supposedly had four of the tiny bees living in her left eye, feeding on her tears — I offer this caveat: It came from Taiwan. Take it with a grain of salt. I don’t mean to knock...

    It’s no secret that Baltimore’s mayor has written a few books. Details are right there in her Maryland Manual bio, from when she was a legislator: “Author, ‘Mind Garden: Where Thoughts Grow’ (2005), and the ‘Healthy Holly’ children's book series.” What most of us didn’t know, however, until Sun...

    Why aren't Md. parents talking about the Kirwan Commission?

    After a visit to The Sun’s editorial board last week from William E. “Brit” Kirwan, chairman of the Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Education, I turned to Facebook to see what parents were saying about the group and its recent recommendations to reform the state’s education system. The...

    Now that we've reflected on the Parkland shooting, we should consider Baltimore's every day

    Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of the devastating massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., where an expelled student shot to death 17 people — 14 of them children — and injured 17 more. It was the deadliest attack ever on an American high school. Presidents...

    Bishop: How starting school after Labor Day in Md. led to my kid's broken collarbone

    Did I ever tell you about the time the governor broke my daughter’s collarbone? That may be a slight exaggeration. It was more a joint effort by the governor, the comptroller and the summer camp planners at the Orokawa Y in Towson, which was, a manager eventually told me, uncharacteristically understaffed...
