  • Around Town: Why must Semper Fi do it?

    Here in the civilian world, we like our victims to be victims. We like to wring our han ds. But in 2003, a group of Marine wives responded when the wounded began coming home from the Iraq war. They founded the Semper Fi Fund to offer assistance to the...
  • Congress accepts own irrelevancy on Libya

    Congress accepts own irrelevancy on Libya
    The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.  Thankfully, Congress yesterday ended its collective denial and admitted it is completely irrelevant.  Senate leaders on Tuesday abandoned plans to force a vote on authorizing the U.S. war in...
  • Obama administration should not recognize Libyan rebels

    I fail to understand how the Obama administration can legitimately recognize a Libyan rebel group as the official government of that nation ("US recognizes Libya's rebels" July 16). Aren't there some important constitutional and Congressional procedures...
  • The U.S. war in Libya is illegal

    I fail to understand how the Obama administration can legitimately continue the war in Libya. Even though Predator drones are the new weapons of choice and some military gurus feel they are not actual combatants, it's wrong to keep this conflict going...
  • Around Town: Let's do better this time

    Today, one-third of homeless adults are veterans. Half of those are Vietnam vets. On any given night, there are approximately 107,000 homeless veterans. Every night, more than 50,000 Vietnam vets sleep on the streets. There are more than two million...

    Col. Moammar Gadhafi's 42-year misrule of the oil-rich African nation of Libya appears finally to be nearing an end. The rebels' surprisingly swift advance into the capital, Tripoli, over the weekend brought large parts of the government's last...
  • City Lights: Teaching and learning from a Libyan friend

    I imagine she would still look the same. My flatmate was in her early 20s when I saw her last, and less than a decade has passed since then. When I see crowd photos of the uprising in Libya, I scan the faces to check for hers — smiling or yelling...
  • McManus: Will there be a Libya bounce for Obama?

    McManus: Will there be a Libya bounce for Obama?
    Twenty years ago this summer, American cities staged noisy, flag-waving parades to celebrate the U.S. victory in a war we've almost forgotten: the Persian Gulf War against Iraq. The president at the time, George H.W. Bush, saw his poll ratings soar in the...
  • Why is Newt better than Mitt?

    The anybody-but-Romney segment of the Republican party is the main reason one alternative candidate after another keeps rising to the fore, the latest being Newt Gingrich. This faction dislikes and distrusts Mitt because he has abandoned so many liberal...
  • Baltimore County school superintendent job draws about 40 candidates

    An Air Force squadron commander who grew up in Middle River and graduated from Baltimore County public schools is among those who have applied to be the school system's next superintendent. Timothy T. Tenne, 42, has no experience in education but said he...
  • Baltimorean taking up the Libyan rebel cause

    Baltimorean taking up the Libyan rebel cause
    As described by those who know him, Matthew VanDyke comes off as footloose and maybe a little feckless. He has worked sporadically, sometimes getting freelance writing or teaching gigs but more often traveling to the Middle East for months at a time...
