Here we go again. Jules Witcover, a known promoter of the liberal agenda, is bashing the GOP ("Boehner's stance on immigration puts GOP in peril," July 2). I guess he would like the Republicans in the House to just follow whatever the Democratic Senate sends to them. It doesn't seem to work the other way around, however, as anything the House sends to the Senate, Harry Reid never even brings to the floor. Mr. Witcover writes that President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats were "frustrated throughout the president's first term by Republican congressional roadblocks.

I strongly disagree with letter writer William Knapp who bashes Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan for promising to create jobs for the middle class and cut taxes ( "Hogan's plan for Md. doesn't add up," Sept. 21). He's worried that Mr. Hogan might cut services or cut pensions or cut salaries and benefits of police and firemen - you know, the standard liberal diatribe against anybody who might be conservative and threaten liberal spending programs. There is no evidence that Mr. Hogan would or could cut any of those items, but one thing he could cut would be spending on illegal immigrants entering this state - dumped here by the Obama administration to the illegal immigrant sanctuaries that are Baltimore City and its surrounding areas.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's detected blatant Russia bashing in media coverage of the Olympics ( "A distorted view of Russia," Feb. 16). It's a case of chronic American superiority. A lot of people condemn Vladimir Putin's position on gay rights (even Maryland First Lady Catherine Curran O'Malley said she felt guilty about watching the games). But Russia has its rules and won't allow any group to tell them what to do. Americans should be concerned about what's wrong here before we condemn someone else.

Kathleen Willey is back. For people who have forgotten, she is the former volunteer aide to President Bill Clinton who claims he sexually harassed her 20 years ago. She wrote a book about it called "Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton. " What, you say you didn't read it? Neither, it seems, did most of America, which long ago yawned at Bill Clinton's exploits and Hillary's apparent enabling of his extramarital liaisons. Ms. Willey is telling anyone who will listen that "Hillary Clinton is the real war on women" because of the way she treated her and the other women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual harassment.

BALTIMOREANS ARE a prideful lot. They love their city and have a tendency to brag about its unique culture, artistic venues, economic rebirth, close-knit neighborhoods, ethnic ties and yes, even its eccentricity and general funkiness. They don't call it Charm City for nothing. But with Mayor Martin O'Malley's official entry into Maryland's gubernatorial race yesterday, the long knives are out. The Baltimore-bashing season is now open. Politicians from Arbutus to Rockville are only too happy to make sweeping and ill-informed condemnations of a city that deserves better.

THE BIGGEST Japanese-basher I've ever known -- even bigger than Lee Iacocca -- was Pfc. William Brinkerhoff who served with me in the Marine Corps on Enewitok during World War II.One night in 1944 during an air raid I hugged one side of the foxhole and he hugged the other."

AMERICAN ''Japan Bashers,'' supposing Tokyo to be more vulnerable to Iraqi domination of OPEC than Washington, are demanding angrily that Japan should contribute many, many billions of dollars to cover a far greater share of the financial and military burdens bravely borne by Washington. Many bashers say that if a greedy Japan continues to be a free-riding beneficiary of the risk-taking sacrifices of others we should revoke our Alliance and impose prohibitive trade barriers.Meanwhile, careful Japanese analysts tell us privately -- we also read of it in the Times -- that the Liberal Democratic Party leadership incredulously digests this most recent Gulf-related cacophony of lamentation, self-pity and savage abuse of Japan voiced by Americans blind to Japan's present strategic benevolences.

DES MOINES, Iowa - The Democratic presidential candidates came away from Iowa after their big Jefferson-Jackson dinner last weekend fired up to beat President Bush, with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York the prime stoker of the coals. As the celebrity mistress of ceremonies, the former first lady was an oratorical match for any of the six White House hopefuls who spoke. She introduced each and challenged the crowd of faithful to spend the next 50 weeks organizing to remove Mr. Bush from the Oval Office and put one of the six in his place.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones will receive this year's Babe Ruth Museum Community Service Award on Thursday during the annual Babe's Birthday Bash. Each year, the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation gives the award to recognize "an active or former professional athlete or individual with ties to the Maryland sports community who has shown a strong devotion to giving back to the local community. " The Orioles' three-time All-Star and Gold Glove outfielder has a lengthy history of philanthropy in Baltimore, especially with local youth organizations.

It really is the most wonderful time of the year: check your guest list twice, deck your halls and prepare to celebrate straight through to the New Year. Whatever your holiday traditions - Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Las Posadas - it's the season for parties that many experts say are less about outdated "rules" and more about embracing your own personal style. "My recipe for a great holiday party is ambience - it starts when you walk in," says Elle Ellinghaus of Elle Designs, whose Canton-based boutique firm planned the summer nuptials of Ravens player Torrey Smith and his bride.

This week's show begins at the chef house, where Travis calls home to talk to his mom about almost being eliminated last week.  We learn a little bit more about him - that he is gay and that his mother knows, but not his father.  Um, Travis…now we all know. Hope you told your dad before this show aired. Could make for an awkward Thanksgiving, buddy. The chefs enter their kitchen to find Padma and Gail waiting for them. The kitchen looks like a bad office prank; everything from the blenders to the spoons and all the pantry items in the kitchen is covered in foil.

Give him credit for this: Maryland's top lawyer knows how to articulate the crucial question. Asked by The Baltimore Sun's Erin Cox and Michael Dresser about a photo showing him standing in the middle of a wild high school party in a rented Delaware house this summer, he said, "Assume for the purposes of discussion that there was widespread drinking at the party. How is that relevant to me? ... The question is, do I have any moral authority over other people's children at beach week in another state?"

AH, THE Baltimore sports scene. We have pro football's Ravens, dem O's, the Maryland Terrapins in football and basketball. There's the Preakness and lacrosse and jousting, the state sport. And then, there's the newest addition: bashing Ed Norris. Remember Norris? From April 2000 until this past December he was Baltimore's police commissioner, praised by many for a sharp reduction in the crime rate. Others weren't as kind. Some held -- and no doubt continue to hold -- a grudge against Norris because of his gender and color, two things over which he had no control.

To suggest that there has been a reversal of fortune - that after an 11-3 bludgeoning of the New York Yankees on Saturday night at Camden Yards the Orioles and Bronx Bombers have swapped places - would be premature. The Yankees, after all, won the American League East last year, kicked the Orioles out of the playoffs and, despite their injuries and recent struggles, are currently in third place in the division. Yet the gap seems to have shrunk considerably between baseball's ultimate “Haves” and the league's perennial 'Not quite yets.” “I think it's just a testament to how good of a baseball team we are now,” said Orioles starter Zach Britton.
