Robert Koehler: The lost and the entitled

When I popped open the old laptop, the Geek Squad guy said maybe I should dust it off. He slid a canister of Endust toward me. "Spray the cloth," he said, "not the machine." I started choking on my sense of humiliation. This poor baby was covered with dust. How could I be so careless and lackadaisical...

    The Pimlico plan can be done

    The Maryland Stadium Authority has the right idea for preserving the Preakness in Baltimore. It recognizes that the century of tradition associated with holding the second leg of the Triple Crown in northwest Baltimore cannot be abandoned but that year-round racing there cannot be revived. Instead,...

    Trump's wall, Trump's shutdown

    Those who are accustomed to “old school” Washington politics — where a photo op with the president and top Democrats is just a photo op and not a tribal council meeting on “Survivor” — might have been appalled by the 17-minute made-for-YouTube Oval Office food fight Tuesday between President Donald...

    School construction and Kirwan funding not an either/or proposition

    As a newly elected state senator who represents a Baltimore County legislative district in which there are two high schools that badly need replacing (Towson and Dulaney) and who also feels that the Kirwan Commission has identified important issues that need to be addressed legislatively, I was...

I know the following for a fact that...

    The Sun on right track for education's future

    Your recent editorial on improving school facilities (“Hogan sets up a schools showdown,” Dec. 12) and instruction and the commentary about "empowering” girls (“Empowering girls makes them safer,” Dec. 12) were both spot on. The challenge of balancing spending on facilities versus instruction can...

    Police chief: High salary justified, redactions not

    Baltimore must carefully consider every expenditure of taxpayers’ money. As it prepares to hire yet another police commissioner, the sum of $260,000 per year has been mentioned as a salary for the latest hire. Given the situation facing the next commissioner, that salary is not excessive. Anyone...

    Panhandling is bad for Baltimore's image

    Recently, The Sun published a letter to the editor about panhandling (“Cordish: Baltimore should enforce panhandling law,” Dec. 12) and a commentary about lack of City Council leadership ("Baltimore City Council’s ‘bold leadership’ includes bans on cat and dog sales and sugary drinks,” Dec. 11)....
