The Three Not For Congress

As a teacher of political science and leader of the movement to get rid of all the corruption in Maryland government, I feel compelled to respond to your endorsement of U.S. Reps. Dutch Ruppersberger, John Sarbanes and Elijah Cummings (“Three for Congress,” Oct. 24).   Frankly speaking, your endorsement does a tremendous disservice to the… Read More

Consider Charles Long for Sarbanes’ Seat

There is serious competition for Congressman John Sarbanes’ seat in Maryland’s 3rd Congressional District from Charles Long, who holds multiple degrees including a Ph.D. in chemical physics and has worked at Johns Hopkins University for 32 years (“Three for Congress,” Oct. 24).   His platform is detailed and includes keeping our citizens safe, growing the… Read More

Two-State Solution Has Created a Monster

In an Oct. 17 editorial, “Staying Ahead of Crises,” the JT gives examples of our leaders’ lack of foresight and vigilance. Here is another prime example:   For more than 20 years, three U.S. presidents and at least as many Israeli prime ministers have toiled in their “peace process” laboratory creating a Frankenstein’s monster —… Read More

RCA Cover-up?

Every day, this story gets even worse (“Prominent Rabbi Arrested,” Oct. 17). Rabbi Barry Freundel should have been thrown ­­out years ago, but the Rabbincal Council of America (RCA) obviously went out of its way not to throw him out. And this is par for all rabbinical groups that protect their favorites.   I was… Read More

Strong Leadership, Makes a Difference

As a former board president of the organization, I was pleased to read the story about Central Scholarship and its 90 years of success helping students achieve their academic, personal and professional dreams (“Still Going Strong at 90,” Oct. 17).   It is a testament to the sustainability and stability of the organization that since… Read More

Numbers Count!

Why is it important to vote (“The Jewish Vote,” Oct. 17)? Here is a story never told. The British government once asked President Harry Truman not to vote for the partition of Palestine. I lived in the Bronx, N.Y., and my father came home from services and told me the rabbis in our community got… Read More

Worth Waiting For

We at Comprehensive Housing Assistance, Inc. (CHAI) read with interest your article “Betting on Baltimore: Casino revenue travels as far as Park Heights” (Oct. 10).CHAI has been intimately involved in Video Lottery Terminal funding decisions with the five presidents of the neighborhood associations (Glen, Fallstaff, Cheswolde, Cross Country and Mount Washington) in our community since… Read More

History Lesson, Part II

Baltimore City College (previously known by other names) was at more than the two locations described in “Baltimore City College Celebrates 175 Years” (Oct. 10) — primarily Courtland Street, Holliday and Fayette streets, Howard and Centre streets  (not Eutaw & Centre streets as mentioned in the article) and The Alameda.   “The Castle on the… Read More

History Lesson, Part I

I enjoyed reading “Baltimore City College Celebrates 175 Years” (Oct. 10), but a correction is in order. “The Castle on the Hill” opened in 1929, not 1939. It cost about $3 million to build. [Editor’s note: The school at that location — The Alameda — actually opened in 1928, according to the school’s website.] Jerome… Read More

A Story of Inspiration

I found Allie Freedman’s article on Ben Goldstein (“Beyond the Stutter,” Oct. 10) very inspiring. He is a wonderful role model for positive thinking. Keep up the good work, Ben.   John Heyn Owings Mills
