    Kane was Sun's star [Letter]
    I was tremendously saddened to hear of the passing of Gregory Kane, one of the best, if not the best, columnists The Baltimore Sun has employed in the last 40 years. I invited him for years to hear former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. lecture to my class,...
  • Transportation taxes again? [Editorial]

    Transportation taxes again?  [Editorial]
    It's a given that politicians like to spend money but they don't like to raise taxes. After all, the former makes them popular with their constituents and the latter has the opposite effect. Rarely is this more evident than in an election year....

    Marijuana puts families at risk [Letter]
    It's refreshing to read that someone feels the same about marijuana and addiction and is willing to say it, too ("A letter to my son on marijuana," Feb. 16)! I am a middle-aged woman who grew up in the '80s, and pot was at every party, school dance or...

    As the beloved Ronald Reagan might say, "there he goes again." Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s hypocrisy ("Liberals, too, get foot-in-mouth disease," Feb. 2) is absolutely mind-boggling. He excoriates "the staggering intolerance … practiced by the...

    Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan said Monday that he will accept public financing in the GOP primary, becoming the second person seeking the office this year to participate in a system that had been dormant for almost two decades. The...
  • Campaign reform in action [Editorial]

    Conservative pro-business Republican Larry Hogan, a former appointments secretary under Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., and Del. Heather Mizeur, a liberal Democrat and ground-breaking advocate for gay rights who favors legalizing marijuana, wouldn't seem to...

    Willard Hackerman, company president and philanthropist, dies
    Philanthropist Willard Hackerman, who transformed a small construction firm into a national giant with $5 billion in annual billings and was instrumental in erecting Maryland landmarks such as Harborplace, died Monday of unknown causes at Johns Hopkins...
  • Baltimore's man to see [Editorial]

    Willard Hackerman held no public office, but he was as much a city father to Baltimore as any mayor or City Council member, delegate or senator. Few, if any, have had a larger impact on this community than the 95-year-old man who died at Johns Hopkins...
  • The GOP does the bidding of the 1 percent [Letter]

    The GOP does the bidding of the 1 percent [Letter]
    I keep waiting for the Republican Party to show some respect for the poor and to stop doing the bidding of the 1 percent. But then I saw that Republicans cut back funding for food stamps while providing more tax dollars for corporate-operated farms....
