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, [...]



Random Thoughts(Updated)

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 20:41:54 +0000

Some random thoughts (questions, mostly) on a summer day: THE TRUMP PARADOX: Is it possible that Donald Trump never expected and, in fact, does not even want to be President? Did he launch his campaign a year ago simply to build his brand? Has he already succeeded beyond his own private expectations? Is [...]



A Paradoxical Summer

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 23:08:22 +0000

Some random thoughts (questions, mostly) on a summer day: THE TRUMP PARADOX: Is it possible that Donald Trump never expected and, in fact, does not even want to be President? Did he launch his campaign a year ago simply to build his brand? Has he already succeeded beyond his own [...]



Spa Creek Could Actually Get Better

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 23:57:30 +0000

In 1650 or thereabouts, a small band of Puritans sailed up Spa Creek and put down roots to create the town we call Annapolis. Then, as now, the Creek was deep, protected and a modest but safe port. In the 18th century, ocean-crossing ships called in Acton’s Cove. The Creek was [...]



Predictably…Wrong!

Sun, 08 May 2016 21:57:05 +0000

No more Predictions. That is my pledge barely halfway through this most unpredictable election year. I have been so consistently wrong in this space and elsewhere about Donald Trump, Jeb Bush and even Bernie Sanders that it is time to swear off predictions for the balance of the 2016 presidential circus. Observations, OK; comments, [...]



Divided We Stand

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 22:25:16 +0000

Partisanship, division and deadlock are nothing new in American politics. But across the board, from the paralyzed 114th Congress, to the 4-4 Supreme Court to the deeply-divided American voter, gridlock is the new normal. In the decades that I have covered Washington politics, I have not seen the like of it. Such is the stage for the [...]



The View from Abroad

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 18:46:56 +0000

My wife, Susy, and I just returned from a three-week, 26,000-mile, Eastport-to-Eastport, jaunt around the world. We flew to Sydney, Australia, sailed to Bali, Indonesia, and flew home from Bali, via Doha, Qatar, to Dulles. Here is what we learned: * The non-stop carnival that is the 2016 [...]



The 2016 Political Circus

Sat, 13 Feb 2016 18:25:47 +0000

In many Presidential years, the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary have clarified the race and provided a roadmap to the nomination. Not this year. In some Presidential years, the winners of the first two contests have emerged as the odds-on favorites to go all the way [...]
