‘White Power’ Letter Is Insulting

I expected to see a letter or two about the election, but I never thought I would see what you published (“A Show of White Power?”).   I found Roy Amadeus’ comments unbelievable in 2014, almost 2015, and I also found them to be quite insulting to the almost 900,000 Marylanders who voted for Larry… Read More

Indyk: Longtime Palestinian Supporter

Your Nov. 7 editorial (“The Mighty Dollar at Brookings”) raised legitimate questions about the influence of foreign governments that make significant donations to Washington think tanks, such as the $14.8 million grant by the government of Qatar to the Brookings Institution, of which Martin Indyk is director.   In the case of Indyk, however, there… Read More

JT Misses Mark on This On

The JT’s reporting on the Obama administration’s position on Israel is disappointing (What’s Next? Nov. 14). Vice President Joe Biden’s statements of support lack any substance when both the State Department’s spokeswoman and the president’s deputy national security advisor make statements that Israel failed in the Gaza operation to minimize civilian casualties. Yet, Chairman of… Read More

ZOA’s Klein Should Apologize

Zionist Organization of America national president Morton Klein defamed me (“Your Say,” May 21) by calling me a liar — and thereby impugning my integrity — claiming that mycharacterization of the ZOA (“Your Say,” April 24) as inimical to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian problem was false. Proof of my truth telling (and Klein’s… Read More

Mikvah Trust Is of Utmost Importance

Before anything gets taken out of context, we need still be cognizant of the fact that Rabbi Barry Freundel’s actions are still undergoing the legal due process, and in America, innocence is assumed before the final verdict is rendered. That said, it is important to note what and where the crisis is not. It is… Read More

For These Parents, Education Comes First

I was so happy to read about the many families who sacrificed leaving their communities, homes, friends and possibly families to relocate to Baltimore for the best interests of their children’s education (“Baltimore Bound,” Oct. 24). I couldn’t help but think about the communities they left, where so many more people were happy with the… Read More

90 Years of ‘Proud’ History

On behalf of the board of directors and staff of Central Scholarship, thank you for recognizing our first 90 years in “Still Going Strong at 90” (Oct. 10). Your article and timeline did a wonderful job explaining our history, of which we are most proud. We clearly recognize that this milestone is an uncommon accomplishment,… Read More

Time to Stand Up to Big-Time Polluters

On the 42nd anniversary of the Clean Water Act, a new report from Environment America, “Waterways Restored,” highlights the success the law has meant for the Anacostia River, taking it from a state of horrific pollution to giving some hope that it will be safe for swimming and fishing in little more than a decade… Read More

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
