  • Red Line would not solve downtown traffic woes

    Red Line would not solve downtown traffic woes

    The Red Line would not have made a dent in downtown traffic congestion (“The real culprit in Baltimore’s traffic woes,” July 18). Most traffic coming into downtown is north-south from North Baltimore, Baltimore, Harford and Carroll counties and from Anne Arundel and Howard counties. Most people...

  • Why should teachers fear efficient spending?

    Why should teachers fear efficient spending?

    I was surprised to see Marijane Monck’s attack on my research ("Attack on Md. school funding traced to Hogan and fellow Republicans,” July 11) and can only conclude that the writer, a public school teacher in Maryland, did not do her homework and actually read the findings on Maryland’s public...

  • Would Trump even pass a background check?

    Would Trump even pass a background check?

    Earlier this week, I was visited by an investigative agent who was doing a routine security background check for an acquaintance who is a public servant. She duly showed me her badge and credentials and proceeded to ask me some perfunctory questions: How long have you known him? Where does he live?...

  • Rep. Andy Harris, Russian collaborator

    Rep. Andy Harris, Russian collaborator

    I imagine most Americans who grew up during the Cold War felt the same surreal horror I did at seeing President Donald Trump insult our democratic allies and grovel to the gangster and assassin Vladimir Putin (“Our criticism today of Rep. Andy Harris was wrong. It was not nearly harsh enough.”...

    Goldberg: Business Insider waves white flag in Scarlett Johansson flap

    A fascinating series of controversies erupted this week, and they had nothing to do with Donald Trump or Robert Mueller. Business Insider ran a column defending actress Scarlett Johansson from fierce criticism for her decision to play a transgender man in a forthcoming film called "Rub and Tug."...

  • Pitts: A simple traffic stop left Ayanna Cruver terrified

    Pitts: A simple traffic stop left Ayanna Cruver terrified

    Two weeks ago, a black woman driving alone in Princeton, La., was pulled over for no apparent reason. But she was not shot and killed. Or hauled from her car and body-slammed. Or even arrested for getting snippy. The officer explained that she was driving under the speed limit, something he said...

  • Reich: Trump's infrastructure scam

    Reich: Trump's infrastructure scam

    At a roundtable discussion with state transportation officials last Friday, Donald Trump said America's aging roads, bridges, railways and water systems were being "scoffed at and laughed" at. He vowed that they "will once again be the envy of the world." This seems to be a core theme for Mr. Trump:...

  • Horsey: Trump's big crime: Ignoring Russia's assault on U.S. elections

    Horsey: Trump's big crime: Ignoring Russia's assault on U.S. elections

    A deadly serious conclusion can be drawn from former FBI Director James Comey' s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee: Donald Trump cares more about himself than about the security of the United States.
