WASHINGTON – Barbara Hovermill boarded one of 12 buses from Hagerstown, determined to be part of the crowd of tens of thousands that rallied Saturday at the Lincoln Memorial at an event organized by conservative commentator Glenn Beck on the 47th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. "We need to have government hear us," said Hovermill, a 68-year-old retired retail worker from Williamsport whose shirt was adorned with buttons and stickers for her favored candidates in Maryland — including gubernatorial candidate Brian Murphy and U.S. Senate candidate Jim Rutledge, both Republicans.

Last week, former Fox News host Glenn Beck returned for a guest appearance with Megyn Kelly and created a bit of buzz saying he wished he'd have been more positive and less divisive during his days on the cable channel. Some call it an apology. I don't. He left Fox News in 2011 under a cloud of controversy. And I celebrated his leaving, because it meant one of the most divisive, reckless and polarizing figures I had ever covered was being marginalized. I remain convinced that mainstream TV and the country are much better off with him in the margins instead of having an audience of 1.8 million viewers a night as he did on Fox. Here's video of a debate between me and Amy Holmes, one of Beck's employees at TheBlaze, his information and opinion media operation.

Apparently quoting Vladimir Lenin to explain the deeper meaning of Obamacare, and stopping just short of calling President Barack Obama a communist, isn't inflammatory enough for Ben Carson in his new role as a paid Fox News contributor. After leveling the Joe-McCarthy-like charges against Obama on Megyn Kelly's show earlier this week, here's Carson raising his game and introducing "slavery" into the already fevered debate over the Affordable Care Act. I wonder how Johns Hopkins is feeling now about that "emeritus" title they gave Carson when he resigned in July.

By writing "Thousands" attended the Glenn Beck rally ("Thousands attend Beck rally," Aug. 29), rather than the hundreds of thousands ( I know it is only a few zeros to you liberals/progressives) as reported on even NBC TV, The Baltimore Sun now ranks right up there with the New York Times and MSNBC in the race for disingenuous reporting honors.

It is sad and somewhat alarming to watch Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and their tea party followers organizing and marching to "Take back America, restore our honor and return to God" ("Thousands attend Beck rally," Aug. 29). While long on sound bites and flag waving, the group comes up a little short on specifics and real motives. Who are they taking America back from - the African-American community, Latinos, the disadvantaged, immigrants to America over the past 200 years? And what are they taking back - the America of Jim Crow when Blacks had no rights, when Jews faced hostile discrimination in housing and the workplace, when gays and lesbians could not fully participate in our society, when the handicapped had little access to public facilities, or when women had no vote and faced workplace discrimination and harassment?

Talk show host Glenn Beck poked and prodded the Republican hierarchy Saturday night in a raucous address to conservatives, comparing the party to an alcoholic who hasn't hit bottom and golfer Tiger Woods before his public repentance. Beck said he believes in the idea of redemption but that he doesn't think the GOP has taken the first step toward it. "I have not seen a come-to-Jesus meeting," Beck told a packed ballroom in Washington " 'Hello, my name is the Republican Party and I've got a problem.

My heart aches for the victims of the horrible shooting in Arizona, and my prayers are with the victims and their loved ones. However, before we even know the full story of what possessed this young man to do this horrific act, there are those who are pointing their fingers, blaming talk radio, Fox News and people like Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck. For those of you who think this psycho read the wrong message into what talk radio and Fox report, then you also have to be classified as a psycho.

Do more to reach homeless veterans The Baltimore Sun gave important coverage to a critical housing program for veterans in the article "Struggling veterans find hope in program" (April 13). The Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program can provide a rent subsidy to veterans that allows them to pay approximately 30 percent of their income for rent. This program is a major tool to end homelessness. But, as the article notes, veterans still comprise up to one-third of the homeless population nationally.

Given the size of Keith Olbermann's audience on Current TV, what goes on during his "Countdown" show probably isn't worth the energy it takes to denounce it. On the other hand, the more marginalized he becomes, the more likely it is that "Countdown" will become a crucible for the kind of reckless and possibly slanderous speech Olbermann allowed from Janeane Garofalo Wednesday night. And part of this job is to identify such speech and warn of its dangers. This utterly unsubstantiated attack on GOP candidate Herman Cain, with its allegations that he must be getting "paid" by someone to run as a Republican, is outrageous.
