As I was driving to work today, I found myself behind a fellow motorist, another middle-aged white guy with eyeglasses, both of us driving General Motors products. His Lumina displayed his allegiances with bumper stickers, two of which caught my eye: "I DON'T BELIEVE THE LIBERAL MEDIA" and "ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE NOT IMMIGRANTS / THEY ARE CRIMINALS. "* They have some linguistic interest.  Take the "illegal alien" sticker. By just about any commonly understood definition, the more or less 11 million people in this country illegally are immigrants.

Robert L. Ehrlich Jr | March 23, 2014
I have developed a habit of noting things that annoy me, a not infrequent task for a Republican these days. When the grievance list gets long enough, I turn it into a Sunday column. Herein my latest list: 1. Eric Holder: In no particular order, suing states over photo identification laws and school choice statutes, advising states on the merits of selective law enforcement, a "Contempt of Congress" citation over the IRS' targeting of conservative groups, foregoing the prosecution of Black Panthers engaged in voter intimidation, and the "Fast and Furious" gun running program are but a sampling of the reasons to be upset by the performance of this hard left attorney general.

I have to agree with letter writer Howard Bluth ("Ehrlich's talk of Obama's radicalism strains credulity," July 25). If he wants to be taken seriously as an opinion-maker,Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.needs to do more than just spout the usual right-wing clichés about the "left-wing mindset" and "European Social Democrat economic model. " His columns always make my eyes glaze over. As it is, Mr. Ehrlich just comes off as a hack. He sounds like somebody who aspires to writing slogans for bumper stickers.

Things are missing from the library at Riderwood Elementary. Things like a tornado in a container and a clock with backward numbers. Things like marble mazes, windup toys and a weird eyeball that seems to elude description. But for parents, students and teachers at the Towson school, the most important thing missing is their witty media specialist and unofficial in-house musician, Bob Hallett. Hallett, who has worked in the county for more than three decades and at Riderwood for much of that time, was recently diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia, and has been at the University of Maryland Medical Center since July, for surgery and treatment.

A man in Overland Park, Kansas, has applied to trademark the phrase that President Obama uttered last month: "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon. " According to Trademarkia.com, Martin Joseph Markley applied for the trademark on March 27 . He filed the application in the category of "personal, legal and social services. " And the goods and services affiliated with the trademark, the filing shows, are advertising slogans and cartoon characters. Obama's remarks on the Martin shooting case last month made national headlines.

If all politics is local -- as is commonly accepted -- nearly all politics in America is ethnic.Of the rainbow of colors on the palette, blue and white may be the favorites of Sen. Paul Sarbanes and Rep. Benjamin Cardin. But those colors, found on their bumper stickers -- and in the flags of Greece and Israel -- also have ethnic symbolism. Just as red and white connect Sen. Barbara Mikulski to her Polish heritage.So what are we to make of Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke's bumper stickers and their subliminal message through the use of red, green and black of the African liberation flag?

It was in early September 2010, and I was serving in Afghanistan, helping to plan our mission to support that country's parliamentary elections. Offhandedly, a colleague asked whether I was going to return to my civilian job when I returned home. I replied, "I don't think so. " Surprised, he asked what I planned to do instead. Confidently, I shrugged him off, "I don't know. I'm sure something will shake loose. " We returned to the Unites States in December 2010 and were assured that we were not going to be forgotten.

When President Barack Obama released his long-form birth certificate yesterday, there were winners (sane people) and losers (Donald Trump).  But the biggest loser of all wasn't Trump. It was Jerome Corsi, along with his book "Where's the birth certificate?" and the WorldNetDaily "Superstore. "  Corsi's book, which recently hit No. 1 on Amazon.com before it has even been released (thanks to a huge plug from the Drudge Report), now has been completely overtaken by current events.  How can a book called "Where's the birth certificate?"

Ask Joseph W. Smith how long he's been waiting for Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. to announce his run for governor, and he answers in a heartbeat. "About four years," he said, laughing. He was leaning against his black Chevy Silverado that was towing a trailer with a big sign -"BRING EHRLICH BACK" - and next to that another big sign: "WHAT'S IN YOUR WALLET," with a close-up of Gov. Martin O'Malley picking a few notes out of a billfold. Smith was parked outside Leon's Triple L Restaurant and Bar on East Drive in the heart of Ehrlich Country - Arbutus - waiting for the Republican former governor's rally to begin at the American Legion post about a mile away.

Earlier this year, I listed 10 Reasons to Hate the Kindles, including this one on the downside of reading e-books in public: Beautiful Russian ballerinas won't introduce themselves upon noticing your copy of Secrets of Nijinsky. As someone who often carries a book around Baltimore, the inwardness and anonymity of the e-book reading experience seems very odd. I don't mean that we should brandish the latest "hot" book in public like some designer handbag. "Look, the new Pynchon!" It's sad if books become just another way of broadcasting our feelings, like T-shirts or bumper stickers.

Over two years, Choose Civility in Howard County has grown into a public campaign of workshops, book discussions and school programs supported by 40 community partners, but it may still be best known for its bumper stickers. People have taken more than 35,000 of the green magnetic reminders to "Choose Civility," and displayed them throughout the county on automobiles, refrigerators and file cabinets. The campaign "began taking off after the car magnets became a visible thing," said Valerie Gross, executive director of the Howard County Library, which is the lead partner for the campaign.
