Is Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. so honest it hurts?According to the Republican's latest television ad, The Sun says he is. But that's not really, well, honest.In fact, it was Nancy Ehrlich who said that her son is "so honest it hurts" in a 1994 newspaper story about his campaign to capture the 2nd District seat. The comment was carried in the article's headline, too.Amid a hard-fought re-election campaign against Democrat Connie Galiazzo DeJuliis, is it honest to attribute mom's comment to the newspaper?

What next? That's what should concern us now. When the nightly dance of angry protesters, opportunistic criminals and inept police clashing over the shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown finally ends, what steps should civic-minded people take to address the ongoing abuse of African Americans by the criminal injustice system? Not just in Ferguson, Mo., but in America? There will be no shortage of good ideas: dashboard cameras, community policing, the hiring of more black cops, the removal of military hardware from police arsenals, sensitivity training.

Washington officially got a new mayor this week when Sharon Pratt Dixon was sworn in as the first woman to lead the District of Columbia. At her inauguration, Dixon, a former utility company executive who had never held elective office, pledged "to give the people of this city the government they deserve and respect," and said what Washingtonians wanted most from their elected officials was simply "an honest deal."Dixon assumes office at a time when the District faces a mounting budget deficit, growing street violence and troubled schools.

After weeks of cringe-worthy dates and melodramatic professions of love, "Bachelorette" Andi Dorfman is down to her final two. Season 10 of the hit ABC show has found its protagonist, love-hungry assistant district attorney Andi, circumnavigate a sea of mostly white, 30-year old men with chiseled bodies to finally find herself in the scenic Dominican Republic with her final two, Josh and Nick. In last night's episode, Andi painfully let go of Chris, the farmer, just as he saw the light at the end of the tunnel that is the “Fantasy Suite," the show's PG-rated way of telling its audience that months of uncomfortable sexual tension will be put to rest.

In an effort "to take steps to secure honest government and lower taxes," a public meeting was held in the courthouse in Bel Air on Sept. 12, 1893. More than 140 local Democrats attended the meeting, which was called to order by John Moores and chaired by George E. Silver, president of the Farmers' Convention. Citing charges of corruption and mismanagement of funds by county officials, Silver received applause when he declared that he would support a Democratic ticket only if honest men were nominated to run for office.

Q: I was single for 11 years. Between marriages (ages 32 to 43) I was asked to "escort" several attractive single "ladies" to functions that were important to them. It can be interesting to be a platonic escort, since I found myself doing things I would not have ordinarily done . . . a progressive dinner on a Victorian house tour, a concert by a local symphony orchestra, a political swearing-in party, a chaperon at a high school prom.And I have also learned that even after one is done serving as an escort, you get introduced to many people you would not meet otherwise.

WASHINGTON -- Sharon Pratt Dixon promised Washingtonians an "honest deal" after she was sworn in yesterday as the national capital's third mayor since Congress granted it home rule 17 years ago."Our immediate responsibility is to give the people of this city the government they deserve and respect," Mrs. Dixon told an audience of several thousand people after she took the oath of office at noon in front of the District Building.Standing on a box so she would be plainly visible behind the lectern as she spoke, the diminutive Mrs. Dixon became a national political figure: the first black woman to become mayor of a major American city.

IT CAME AS a surprise to us at The Sun to learn, via one of Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich's televised campaign ads, that the newspaper had paid him this glowing compliment: "So honest, it hurts."We have said nice things about the 2nd District congressman and former state lawmaker before. Indeed, he was our choice in the 1994 congressional election. But we could not remember making the remark attributed to this newspaper. For good reason.We didn't.The congressman's mother did. In an Aug. 17, 1994, profile of Mr. Ehrlich that appeared in the Maryland section, his mom was quoted as saying that she had told her son: "You don't want to do that [run for political office.

Bad news is hitting all sorts of workplaces lately, forcing employers and workers to deal with the lingering consequences. Pharmaceutical giant Merck announced this week that it would cut 7,000 jobs during the next three years and close five manufacturing plants. General Motors, struggling to turn around its ailing business, plans to close nine plants and cut 30,000 jobs over the next three years. Meanwhile, several airlines are operating in bankruptcy, while jobs and pensions have been cut. Everything from layoffs to disappointing earnings to company restructuring can disrupt routines and create anxiety and uncertainty among managers and employees.

MOUNT STERLING, Iowa - The mayor of this tumbledown town of liars wants his neighbors to stop fibbing - and he's proposed a law to keep them honest. A big, blustery man fond of blue-and-white-striped overalls, Mayor Jo Hamlett says he wants to start fining anyone who dares stretch the truth. There are only 53 folks in town - make that 52, since a jilted boyfriend took to the road - but if his ordinance passes, Hamlett figures the violations will pile up quickly. Just the other day, he watched as a resident by the name of Bob strode into the tavern, boasting he had just shot a mighty big turkey, 27 pounds if it was an ounce.

Regarding the recent letter from a reader who praises gubernatorial candidate Del. Heather Mizeur ( "Md. Democrats should give Mizeur a second look," June 6), I concur, and I am a Republican. Delegate Mizeur makes a lot of sense and avoids speaking in generalities. She has a plan. I can detect a sense of honesty in her responses, and that's not true with the other two Democratic candidates. It's hard to tell what any person can do if elected, but If I happened to be a Democrat, my vote would currently be for Ms. Mizeur.

Ana Rule stepped onto a balcony outside the Inn at the Black Olive Sunday morning to check the first results of an unusual air-monitoring effort - one intended to make sure official monitoring across the street is accurate. The hotel in Baltimore's Fells Point overlooks Harbor Point, the planned $1.8 billion mixed-use development on land where a factory once processed chromium. Contaminated soil - capped years ago to keep the toxic chemicals under control - would be temporarily exposed during the early part of the work there.

A report released this week from the National Registry of Exonerations, a joint venture between two Midwestern law schools, hails 2013 as a "record-breaking" year for exonerations - though the term is used loosely. Overturned convictions may have little to do with the establishment of actual innocence and more to do with the discovery of mistakes or misdeeds in the legal proceedings. Around the country, at least 87 convictions were overturned last year, including two in Maryland - one because information about the unreliability of a key witness was withheld from the defense and the other because DNA analysis revealed another man committed the crime.

"Looking," HBO's newest half-hour comedy, is a show about gay men, but that doesn't make it a gay show. Which is not to say the series (which premieres Sunday at 10:30 p.m.) doesn't have gay sexuality at its center. Its central characters are three out men living in San Francisco, the long-reigning epicenter of LGBT culture. And these guys - - video-game designer Patrick, artist's assistant Augustin and longtime waiter Dom - - are hardly shy about their sexual desires. The show's opening moments depict what may be TV's most stunningly awkward "helping hand.

Once again, as he did with the BP oil spill, Anderson Cooper rises to the top on a big story. And, man, is the actual journalism he's been doing at CNN this week needed now, in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict, as MSNBC and Fox sink deeper into their ideological swamps. Early Sunday morning as I hip shot a post on the immediate coverage following the late Saturday-night verdict, I was depressed by the polarizing onscreen tableau I had been seeing of MSNBC's Al Sharpton on one side calling the verdict an "atrocity" and Fox's Geraldo Rivera on the other saying essentially that Zimmerman should never have been tried for the death of Trayvon Martin.

Two years ago as he was about to take over a ratings-battered and beleaguered newscast from Katie Couric, Scott Pelley told me he thought great journalism in the traditional sense of that term could still be good business despite the epic change rocking TV news. Today, on his second anniversary in the anchor seat once held by Walter Cronkite, Pelley and the folks at CBS News can point to a record of solid growth at a time when most in the legacy media business are just hoping to stem the rate of decline.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Chino Wilson is small, but his arguments pack a punch.Some people say he hits below the belt, but he doesn't care what they think.

"If you back me up against a wall I come up swinging."Mr. Wilson, 22, a 5-foot-3, fifth-year senior at Penn State, has embroiled himself in a fight of the figurative variety with a column he wrote for the Jan. 28 edition of the Daily Collegian, Penn State's student newspaper.

My alma mater made it official this past Friday: Towson University has made the despicable choice to drop the mens' soccer and baseball programs. The decision-makers had the audacity to inform the student ballplayers, their parents, and the community it was due to Title IX mandates (which basically calls for equity among the genders in our NCAA colleges and universities). Being in its off-season, the mens' soccer program was cut immediately. The baseball team will play out the remainder of its season, but many players on the team now have to make contingency plans about where to further their college baseball passion.
