    Hey, Hollywood: Why not work on the L.A. stage?
    There are precious few guarantees in the theater anymore. Boffo playwrights went out with the Neil Simon dinosaurs. A new show by Stephen Sondheim, hands down the greatest living musical theater composer, can't even count on a Broadway booking. The only...
  • House bill would allow 3,000 slot machines at BWI

    A Baltimore County lawmaker is proposing slot-machine gambling at Maryland's major airport, but Gov. Martin O'Malley called the casino a "bad idea," limiting its chances at a time of slots-related buyer's remorse in Annapolis. Del. Eric M. Bromwell's...

    Court nomination fights -- enough!

  • Laurence Fishburne delivers transformative performance in 'Thurgood'

    It's a shame that Black History Month doesn't come around more than once a year -- especially when it brings with it work this excellent. Thursday, Feb. 24, HBO presents "Thurgood," starring Laurence Fishburne in a role that could define his mature...
  • It's A Gray Area: A worthy celebration of the justice system

    Port Chicago, site of a World War II home front tragedy, is a classroom today
    The bombs erupted along Pier No. 1, thousands of them, about 30 miles northeast of San Francisco. And 66 years later, you can still spot a few twisted hunks of metal near water's edge, an American flag snapping in the wind overhead. This is Port...
