Aggressively liberal professors are pushing conservative students toward Trump

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 08:35:00 PDT

For the past four years at Loyola University Maryland I have come to find lifelong friendships; amazing professors, who were instrumental in my being able to go to law school next year; and, by the grace of God, I was even able to find a date. I was also able to discover the reason why Donald Trump...

Baltimore's Jenny Owens: good boss, good person

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 08:20:00 PDT

My first real job came a few months after I started grad school in 2013. A professor told me about an opening at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, where one of her former students was hiring. “I think you and Jenny would be a great fit,” she said. I applied, interviewed, was quickly offered...

Witcover: The rule of law, and of sanity, in Trumpland

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 08:00:00 PDT

With our executive branch in the hands of Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled legislative branch now essentially subservient to him, the judicial branch and the Justice Department now remain the principal defenders of the rule of law in this country.

Many federal and state judges have rebuked...

Pompeo, the not ideal, not unqualified diplomat

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 09:55:00 PDT

Our view: Full Senate should approve Mike Pompeo as secretary of state despite his hawkish outlook

After more than two centuries, the list of cabinet nominees to be either rejected by the U.S. Senate or withdrawn from nomination is on the order of once per decade. Many of those who failed to make...

Sunshine at City Hall (and the State House, and the Old Courthouse ...)

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 07:55:00 PDT

The public has a right to know what entities are lobbying the government to advance their interests on matters of policy and legislation, how much is being spent on those efforts, and who is doing the actual lobbying. And in 2018, “right to know” does not mean “a right to go to a government office...

Goldberg: America not as intolerant as we make it out to be

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 03:00:00 PDT

I don't normally watch the GLAAD Media Awards. Not that there's anything wrong with them. GLAAD, by the way, originally stood for "Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation" before the organization declared that GLAAD was its name and not an acronym.

But I did see a video of Britney Spears' acceptance...

One professor's case against 'free' college tuition

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 03:00:00 PDT

Awaiting Gov. Larry Hogan’s signature is a General Assembly bill, deemed a “compromise,” that would enable low and middle-income students to attend community college in Maryland with no tuition costs.

France broke the two-party rule, why can't we?

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 03:00:00 PDT

In 2016, 38-year-old Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron and his allies formed a new political party in France. Calling themselves En Marche, roughly “on the move,” the party sought to renew political life by breaking the stranglehold of two largely do-nothing parties — Socialist or Republican — that...

Maryland right to slow down massive highway P3

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 09:15:00 PDT

We’re glad Gov. Larry Hogan heeded Treasurer Nancy K. Kopp’s concerns about the selection of the lead firm on a contract to oversee his massive highway building plan in the Washington suburbs. The questions she and others raised about Transportation Secretary Pete Rahn’s role in a procurement that...

Pitts: 'Excuses for Donald Trump'

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 03:00:00 PDT

"We kind of gave him -- ‘All right, you get a mulligan. You get a do-over here.’"

-- Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, on the white evangelical response to Donald Trump's alleged tryst with a porn star

"He's new at government, and so therefore I think that he is learning as he goes."

Cal Thomas: Is 'Old-fashioned' returning?

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 03:00:00 PDT

"It's a modern changing world

Everything is moving fast.

But when it comes to love I like

What they did in the past."

-- The Everly Brothers, 1962

Call me old-fashioned -- and I've been called worse -- but do I sense the possible end to the sexual revolution, which exploded in the '60s and whose...

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 03:00:00 PDT

In the fight between former FBI Director James Comey, who has written a newly published memoir, and President Trump, who has been responding to Mr. Comey's book with increasingly vituperative tweets, readers should remember that it's Mr. Trump who is facing possible obstruction of justice charges,...

Earth Day is meaningless without bipartisan protection efforts

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 03:00:00 PDT

Back in 1970, I was a cub just out of law school and working in my first real job with the National Wildlife Federation in Washington. Sen. Gaylord Nelson, a Wisconsin Democrat, called a meeting on the Hill for staffers of national conservation organizations. I attended representing NWF not knowing...

'Dog lovers': a city menace?

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 03:00:00 PDT

The other day I was strolling down Roland Avenue and I struck up a conversation with an elderly gentleman who was the proud owner of a lovely herb garden growing in his front yard. He told me once a woman brought her dog on a leash to urinate in his garden and he objected (more politely than I...

Goldberg: Trump's message to Syria is a muddled one

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 03:00:00 PDT

President Trump was right to punish Syrian President Bashar Assad with airstrikes this month.

Some have said that the bombing campaign didn't go far enough, and I'm sympathetic to that argument. Empty buildings in the middle of the night are useful targets if you want to demonstrate symbolic disapproval,...

What Trump can learn from Baltimore's port

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 09:35:00 PDT

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 09:05:00 PDT

Almost every little girl wants to be a princess when she grows up. My dream came true in Washington, D.C.. when I became Maryland’s 2018 Cherry Blossom Princess.

The Cherry Blossom Princess Program, celebrating its 70th anniversary, is a multicultural, educational and professional development program...

Baltimore should analyze agencies' policies on racial equity but not set up another dedicated fund

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 09:20:00 PDT

When members of Baltimore’s Planning Department sought to investigate whether the city’s capital spending was racially and socio-economically equitable, they came to some startling findings. Over a five-year period when the city allocated $670 million to such projects, neighborhoods that were at...

Alternative Fact of the Week: 'Breeding concept'

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 07:10:00 PDT

This past week presented a remarkable contrast in perception of immigrants in California. On the one hand there was Gov. Jerry Brown claiming there is no “massive wave of migrants pouring into California. On the other, there was President Donald J. Trump tweeting his fears Wednesday morning of...

Pitts: What happened in Starbucks isn't really about Starbucks

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 03:00:00 PDT

I don't drink coffee, so I can't boycott Starbucks. But I wouldn't if I could.

Yes, I understand — and share — the national anger over viral video of last week's arrest of two African-American men at one of the company's Philadelphia stores. The men, who have yet to be identified, were reportedly...
