A clean bill of health for restaurants

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 08:55:00 PDT

At least once every year each of Baltimore City’s approximately 5,700 restaurants and eateries must pass a health department inspection in order to stay in business. Those checks are essential not only to ensure that minimum standards of cleanliness are observed in food preparation and service...


Robert B. Reich: Is Trump unraveling?

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 03:00:00 PDT

Last week, Sen. Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, charged in an interview with the New York Times that Donald Trump was treating his office like "a reality show," with reckless threats toward other countries that could set the nation "on...


You may not like media, but you need them

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 08:35:00 PDT

Whether it’s the path of major storms, changes in health care plans or how a Hollywood mogul managed to get away with abusing women for decades, when it comes to the big stories of the day, you’re better off having a free and independent press going after the truth come hell or high water. But...


Honor, duty, Trump

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 11:15:00 PDT

Plato once observed that there are several categories of men, including “lovers of honor” and “lovers of gain.” The sharp contrast between the two approaches was on display Monday in Philadelphia and Washington. One of the public figures involved proved himself (once again) an embarrassment of...


Hey Amazon, if you lived here, you could live here

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 09:15:00 PDT

As economic development officials in Maryland (and more or less everyplace else in North America) finish their pitches this week for Amazon’s HQ2 project and the 50,000 jobs projected to come with it, we’d like to add one final point in Baltimore’s favor the company might want to consider. Amazon...


Driving too slow — a pretext for a Va. traffic stop

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 05:00:00 PDT

Recently, while vacationing in Virginia, I was pulled over by a state trooper for, I was told, driving in the left lane at a speed deemed to be too slow.

It was just after 7 p.m., and I was driving with my wife and three children on a two-lane highway, following behind my sister and brother-in-law’s...


'No Thank You, Amazon.'

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 03:00:00 PDT

Tomorrow, local leaders will submit their case to Amazon that Baltimore should be the choice location for the company’s new headquarters (HQ2). This is a missed opportunity for Baltimore.

Rather than spending time and resources putting together a proposal to woo Jeff Bezos, city and state officials...


Weinstein scandal stirs harassment memories

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 07:00:00 PDT

In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, I remember my own office harassment that occurred almost three decades ago. As a 22-year-old technical writer for a government contractor, I was working in my first job — nothing exciting, but it came with good benefits and a decent salary. Mine was...


Protect the forest patches that protect Baltimore

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 07:00:00 PDT

Recent news that Baltimore’s tree canopy — the proportion of the city shaded by trees — has expanded from 27 percent to 28 percent is wonderful, and is thanks to the dedicated work of TreeBaltimore and its partners. But the target is 40 percent, and if we don’t take steps to protect our forest...


Truths revealed at a high school reunion

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 07:00:00 PDT

High school reunions can be a lot of fun or excoriatingly painful, depending upon whether one has recovered from the coming of age experiences well depicted in the popular culture, and from taking high school gym class. The high school reunion I recently attended affirmed several universal truths...


Baltimore police patrol schedule puts the public — and officers — at risk

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 10:20:00 PDT

The Baltimore Fraternal Order of Police’s argument in favor of keeping the disastrous four days on, three days off shift schedule, goes something like this: Officers need the four/three schedule so they can recuperate from all the mandatory overtime they’re working because of the four/three schedule.


Horsey: Grifter Trump spins tax cuts for the rich as a boon for workers

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 03:00:00 PDT

Donald Trump is a salesman who has never let truth get in the way of peddling a product. As president, he tried unsuccessfully to sell various schemes to repeal and replace Obamacare by using the same technique he used to sell the bogus curriculum of Trump University: make outlandish claims of...


Witcover: Trump's 'love' for Puerto Rico will be tested as territory recovers

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 07:00:00 PDT

When Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee charged the other day that the White House had become "an adult day care center" — with three former generals there babysitting President Donald Trump — he added: "Someone obviously missed their shift."

On Thursday, the president proved Mr. Corker's point...


Goldberg: GOP hog-tied by a divided Senate

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 03:00:00 PDT

Why can't we have nice things?

That's the question, if not exactly the phrasing, so many conservatives are asking these days.

Despite controlling the White House and both branches of Congress, the GOP can't get much done. Oh, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have...


Fee shifting can help restore balance to rent court

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 04:00:00 PDT

This year, the Baltimore Sun published an important series of articles on Baltimore City Rent Court. It describes a complex rent escrow system designed to protect tenants that is nevertheless dominated by landlords — even when the properties have conditions that are a serious threat to the health...
