They Also Serve……

Mon, 10 Apr 2017 20:53:07 +0000

The jury summons came in the mail, posing the classic dilemma: do my civic duty, or try to weasel out? This time, at least, I opted for duty and showed up at Circuit Court on Church Circle in Annapolis at the appointed hour. 8:00 a.m. Checked into the jury room and [...]

Media in the Age of Trump

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 02:27:39 +0000

For news organizations, the early months of the Age of Trump have been, perversely, the best of times and the worst of times. The worst, because of the 45th President’s vitriolic assault on the media as dishonest, disloyal “enemies of the people.” The best, oddly, because the chaos [...]

News Obsessive Disorder

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 21:03:36 +0000

Are you suffering from News Obsessive Disorder (NOD)? Do the headlines out of our nation’s capital give you a headache? Does page-one make you anxious? Do you find yourself watching cable news non-stop? You are not alone. NOD is endemic in the Age of Trump, and growing. [...]

A Three-way Race for Mayor of Annapolis

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 22:21:31 +0000

“Gavin 2017.” That was the bumper sticker I saw in a parking lot the other day. It was the first sign that the 2017 race for mayor of Annapolis is underway. Buckle up. It may get lively. “Gavin” is Gavin Buckley, the outgoing 53-year-old owner of, it seems, most of the restaurants on West Street, including [...]

Campaign Autopsy: Clinton’s 1,000 Cuts

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 19:25:57 +0000

A month after the most surreal, bizarre Presidential election in my lifetime, I find I have almost as many questions as answers. Not about Donald Trump’s Electoral College victory, which seems clear, unless the Michigan recount and the Electors who actually cast their votes on December 19, decide otherwise. [...]

Americans Afloat Choose Change

Sat, 26 Nov 2016 20:01:18 +0000

Some cheered when Donald Trump went over the top, some groaned, some said it was the dawn of a new era, some said it was the end of history, some made comments not suitable for a family newspaper and just about everybody expressed shock. Six hundred strong, they were part of a floating focus group aboard [...]

Grace Under Pressure?

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 20:57:24 +0000

While sensible people are focused on the Annapolis Boat Show, the weather or even Sunday night football, tens of millions of us will tune in tonight to the second Presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Second debates in a series of three are not generally all that consequential. But this one could really [...]

The Times, It Is a Changin’

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 16:47:04 +0000

The Times, It Is A Changin’ You see it on the front page of The New York Times, live on NBC and across the spectrum: reporters, not commentators or columnists, calling out Donald Trump for lying. That role used to be reserved for fact-checkers and editorial writers. The reporters would report, others would analyze, or, leave it [...]

Rising Waters

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 17:19:05 +0000

Lisa Craig’s office window looks out on Main Street, across from Kilwin’s ice cream shop and the Helly Hanson store. Every heavy rain, she gets a vivid reminder of just how vulnerable Annapolis is to the freaky weather that somehow seems normal these days. “Main Street becomes a river,” she said the other day, “the water [...]

Dog Days and Donald’s Taxes

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 14:37:33 +0000

The Dog Days of Summer, that hot, humid period when the dog star, Sirius, rises and falls during the day, are normally a sleepy interlude in the political calendar. Even in a presidential year, the freshly-minted nominees usually have the decency to take a break after the national political conventions until Labor Day, [...]
