    Kevin Plank may be Trumpier than we knew

    Turns out Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank is Trumpier than we thought. Last year, he came under fire for praising the president’s business stance, and this year, we find out he’s also a fan of strippers (shout-out to Stormy!). Mr. Plank and other executives attended strip clubs after various events...

    Taylor Swift finds her (political) voice

    Kudos to singer Taylor Swift for getting political this week and urging young people to vote during her “artist of the year” acceptance speech at the 2018 American Music Awards and in an earlier Instagram post.

    It’s been one year since the viral version of the #MeToo movement spread the message that women are not chattel across the globe like a California wildfire, toppling metaphorical redwoods and clearing out the underbrush in its path.

    The Catholic church: a history of inaction toward pedophiles

    Before The Sun moved offices last month, we were told we had to pare down what was in many cases years of accumulated notes and files — drawers full of interviews, court records, gang manifestos and whatever else we’d managed to collect and save in case we might need it again for another story,...

It assumes that even if Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers are deemed credible, it doesn’t matter, because his denials of the sexual assaults they describe are credible too. He says...

    In defense of Norm Macdonald

    Norm Macdonald has a point. Not in his boneheaded dismissals of the #MeToo movement and the trauma undergone by victims of sexual harassment and assault, of course, but in his comments about forgiveness. “The model used to be: admit wrongdoing, show complete contrition and then we give you a second...

    Howard County school board needs to grow up

    The Howard County Board of Education claims its mission is to “provide leadership for excellence in teaching and learning by fostering a climate for deliberative change through policy and community engagement.” Besides the nature of the “deliberative change” they’re seeking, I wonder about exactly...

    Md. Dems take a page from Trump

    Wednesday evening, the Maryland Democratic Party sent out an email blast — identified as being from “Ben Jealous Press” — with the subject line: “FYI: Hidin' Hogan Afraid To Debate and Defend His Record.” And then, in case you missed that one, it followed up Thursday morning with another message,...
