Dems Ignored Too Many

The Democratic Party has reinvented itself. It was the party of the working poor and middle class. But now it has become the party of the African-Americans, Latinos, Muslims, LGBTQs, radical left-wingers, socialists, disenfranchised, anarchists and so on. The Democratic Party pandered to these groups and recruited them into a rainbow coalition determined to advance… Read More

Job Well Done

In response to Joshua Runyan’s Nov. 11 Opening Thoughts (“Thank God, the Election Is Over”): A degree in journalism and speech from what was then Syracuse University’s School of Journalism and School of Speech and Performing Arts didn’t result in my pursuing either of the fields except indirectly, but I can appreciate the quality of… Read More

Got Trump Where He Belongs

Whether or not I appreciate the JT’s coverage of the presidential election remains to be seen. But was it really necessary to put Donald Trump’s picture on the Nov. 11 cover? It will, however, fit perfectly at the bottom of my bird’s cage.

State Says No to Voter Intimidation

Voter intimidation is prohibited by federal law, as Joshua Runyan pointed out in the JT (“Getting Out the Vote,” Nov. 4). It’s also prohibited by Maryland law. Flyers were distributed in predominantly black and Hispanic neighborhoods urging people to vote on the Thursday after Election Day in 2004. They also  implied that you couldn’t vote… Read More

Speak Out for Social Justice

I want to respond to “Shall We Really Pursue Justice in Baltimore in 5777?” by Claire Landers in the Oct. 7 edition of the JT. I believe the prophet Isaiah calls on us to engage with this issue and with others related to social justice here in Baltimore. A Department of Justice study reveals details… Read More

Szeliga’s the Choice

I am disappointed but not surprised that once again the JT has put liberalism in front of qualifications and Democrat Party loyalty ahead of America and Israel. You accomplished this by putting Rep. Chris Van Hollen ahead of Del. Kathy Szeliga in your endorsement (“Van Hollen for U.S. Senate,” Oct. 21). You attack Szeliga for… Read More

A Rising Star

Congratulations to Jennifer Robinson for being spotlighted by the Jewish Times (“You Should Know,” Oct. 28).  Jennifer represents the very best of the oft-maligned millennial generation, demonstrating strong  loyalty to family and dedication to her professional growth and satisfaction. Jennifer pitched the idea of a young professionals group to the Pikesville Chamber of Commerce as… Read More

Journalistic Malpractice

Basic principles of journalism dictate that a paper’s editorial position be based on accurate facts and should fully consider all relevant issues. Both of these principles were violated by the JT in editorials published on Oct. 21 In “Preparing the People for Peace,” the JT claims that since the Oslo period, Israel has done “nothing… Read More

Hillary? Seriously?

In the JT’s Oct. 14 Opinion page endorsement of Hillary Clinton for president, you said that she has an “even temperament.” However, according to former Secret Service agents, she is known to have thrown plates and dishes at husband Bill more than once while she was first lady. You called her a “left-leaning centrist,” yet… Read More

No Go on Endorsement

Since when did the Jewish Times become a political publication (“Hillary Clinton for President,” Oct. 14)? Everyone who subscribes is not a liberal Democrat, and I am personally offended that my subscription money is being used to promote Hillary Clinton. The Your Say letters of Oct. 28 (“Clinton Corrupt,” “Clinton a Liar”) said it all,… Read More
