Grace at the holidays and beyond

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 03:00:00 PST

In his intriguing new book, “Friends Divided,” Pulitzer-prize winning historian Gordon Wood describes the on-again, off-again, on-again friendship between founding fathers John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.

What stood out for me in this excellent recreation of our nation’s history was the contrast...


Yes, it is legal to drive with snow on the roof of your car in Maryland. It probably shouldn't be.

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 09:20:00 PDT

If you drove to work this morning in fear that a sheet of snow or ice might slide off the roof of the car in front of you and obstruct your view of the road or, worse, smash your windshield, you’re not crazy. Accidents can and do happen as a result of that, and several states have enacted legislation...


Alternative Fact of the Week: Stick to the truth about gun violence; it's bad enough without embellishment

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 09:25:00 PDT

As impressive as the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have been in calling attention to the issue of gun violence — and as much as their upcoming protest, “March For Our Lives” in Washington is likely to draw considerable attention to their cause this Saturday — we can’t help but...


Dear Gov. Hogan: Give me a break!

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 06:40:00 PDT

Dear Gov. Hogan,

I am an elementary school teacher in Prince George’s County. While I enjoy the occasional unexpected snow day as much as anyone, I am mourning the loss of our spring break.

Last August when you handed down the executive order that all schools must end before June 15 and that “school...


Don't leave Marylanders in the dark, modernize 'the grid'

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 06:10:00 PDT

Infrastructure isn’t sexy. But Marylanders know that letting maintenance and modernization needs get ahead of you can come with a high price. Just ask any of the tens of thousands of people who couldn’t get to work on time because of the Baltimore Metro’s recent and sudden shut down for a month...


Sex trafficking bill likely to do more harm than good

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 06:05:00 PDT

The Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) was voted into law this week, but it won’t end child sex trafficking online. The justification for this legislation rests on the misleading idea that individual websites facilitate child sex trafficking, when in reality the...


Building Maryland's 21st Century workforce

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 09:50:00 PDT

The efforts by Mayor Catherine Pugh and Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz to provide free community college to certain high school graduates represent an important recognition that our traditional ideas of universal public education are no longer good enough. Both Ms. Pugh’s program and...


Snowed: How a silly political gimmick is causing havoc for Maryland teachers, students and parents

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 09:00:00 PDT

Baltimore and Wicomico counties have already asked to cut the school year short because of bad weather. Howard is trying, and more districts may soon follow. Blame Gov. Larry Hogan.(image)

President Trump's unbecoming love for foreign dictators

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 09:10:00 PDT

Sen. John McCain once again demonstrated himself a voice of reason on foreign policy in the time of Donald Trump, blasting the president for congratulating Russian President Vladimir Putin for winning re-election during a recent telephone call. “An American president does not lead the Free World...


Pitts: Parkland kids are rewriting the playbook

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 03:00:00 PDT

Something came awake in them.

That has to be the explanation. As they cowered in closets, as they said goodbyes and waited, with gunfire echoing down the halls, to die, something inside stirred itself.

And when they didn't die, when these teenagers left the campus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High...


Is history about to repeat itself in Baltimore County Public Schools?

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 06:30:00 PDT

Several years ago, when Dallas Dance was being considered for the position of superintendent for BCPS and then after he was hired, there were a number of red flags to indicate that he was not the right choice. Initially, he lacked the needed requirements in experience, and waivers were required...


Gov. Hogan, rethink State Center, don’t rebuild it

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 05:50:00 PDT

On Monday, the Maryland House of Delegates voted to pass a bill that would put certain parameters on any effort to resuscitate the stalled State Center redevelopment project in West Baltimore. Problem is, redeveloping the site was a bad idea when first hatched by former governor Robert Ehrlich,...


We strictly regulate all sorts of products, why not guns?

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 05:40:00 PDT

In September of 1982 seven people in the Chicago area died from Tylenol capsules that had been maliciously and randomly injected with cyanide poisoning. Copycat crimes followed for a short time, but within months new federal regulations mandated tamper resistant seals for over-the-counter pill...


A good guy with a gun may have saved lives in a Md. school — a trained good guy in uniform

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 11:15:00 PDT

The shooting Tuesday morning at Great Mills High School in St. Mary’s County is terrifying — both because something like that could happen so close to home and because it clearly could have been so much worse. The gunman, identified as Austin Wyatt Rollins, a 17-year-old student at the school,...


Robert B. Reich: The menace of a mad king

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 03:00:00 PDT

Donald Trump is moving into a new and more dangerous phase.

Before, he was constrained by a few "adults" -- Rex Tillerson, Gary Cohn, H.R. McMaster and John Kelly -- whom he appointed because he thought they had some expertise he lacked.

Now, Mr Trump has either fired or is in the process of removing...
