As I read the editorial, "Rejecting austerity" (May 9), I couldn't help but think of how well it echoes the left-wing agenda. I disagree with almost every point made, as it only showcases conservatives as the problem. It is all parties and the incessant games they play to keep all of us at each other's throats. There are no lessons to learn from France nor the European Union. They are free to choose their path. They want to be coddled by their government from cradle to grave, then so be it. The United States of America had always been a beacon of hope and prosperity to immigrants, legal ones, from all around the globe.

The Sun's recent editorial about the tea party's fortunes helps everyone understand why dinosaur media outlets are circling the drain toward oblivion ( "Weakened tea," May 21). In the view of some, every political issue fits into file folders - Fox News Channel or MSNBC, the Wall Street Journal or the New York Times, the tea party or the GOP establishment. The Sun derides me for filling in on conservative talk radio. But it is not conservative talk radio or Fox News that declared bankruptcy or sees its audience decline year after year.

In reading The Sun's editorial pages on Oct. 4, I couldn't help but think that the editorial board, in bowing to the extreme left wing base, has been shoveling a huge amount of "stuff. " Take, for example, the editorial, "Congress: Do your job," where you take issue with the Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives over their distaste for the Obamacare bill passed by Democrats, without a single Republican vote. What you never seem to discuss is that under our Constitution, the House holds the purse strings of this nation.

Grieving NASA scientists began painstaking detective work yesterday to pinpoint the cause of the catastrophe that tore apart the space shuttle Columbia as the aging spacecraft plummeted into the atmosphere at more than 12,000 mph. They have a critical clue in the first sign of trouble during re-entry: the successive failure of temperature sensors embedded in the left wing, the left tire well and the hydraulic system that controls the left wing flaps....

For about 20 years, I have been teaching a course at Towson University called "Media Criticism," which deals largely with alleged ideological media bias. The claims of liberal bias in the mainstream media go back at least as far as Barry Goldwater's campaign for the presidential nomination in 1964. Perceiving repeated negative interpretations contained in "news reports" on his candidacy, he pleaded with major newspapers to put at least one reporter on his campaign who would just report what he said.

I'm not big into conspiracy theories. I never bought into the grassy knoll in Dallas or the anti-Obama birther movement. And it will take a lot of convincing for me to believe Oakland Raiders coach Bill Callahan took a dive in Super Bowl XXXVII to please his friend (and opposing coach) Jon Gruden. But I do believe that America's political tilt toward progressivism is the product of a lot of grassroots work by very liberal groups intent on remaking the American economy and culture.

Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s increasingly irrational rhetoric in his criticism of President Barack Obama bears closer scrutiny ("No, Mr. President, nobody else 'made that happen,'" July 22). Mr. Ehrlich is not content to challenge Mr. Obama's policies on their merits. Rather, he paints a president with a "far-left mindset," cultivated by left-wing radicals who imprinted his young mind with a "worldview" that now "seeks to transform our market economy and culture" by expanding federal power into "every nook and cranny of the U.S. economy.

There would be no close finish this time. In a series defined by bone-jarring hits and tight contests, the Maryland men's lacrosse team found its rhythm early and often en route to an almost routine 10-4 dismantling of Navy before an announced 6,993 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis on Friday night. Eight of the previous meetings in the 82-year history of this series had been by one goal, but the No. 6 Terps made sure there would be no such dramatic ending this time.

A. Robert Kaufman, a lifelong civil rights activist, political gadfly and socialist who ran for just about every office ranging from Baltimore City Council to president of the United States, died early Friday. He was 78. Those who knew Mr. Kaufman said he formed his political views at an early age and never backed down from a debate. He was arrested countless times, thrown out of candidate forums and kicked out of council meetings. But he'd always be back, trying to use the political process to further his causes - from civil rights in his younger days to his more modern push to legalize drugs as a means to cut their street value.

HOUSTON - An object seen floating near shuttle Columbia on its second day in space is almost certainly a tile-covered panel that somehow came dislodged from the edge of the ship's left wing, investigators said yesterday. Tests show that the so-called "carrier panel" most closely matches the object tracked by radar while the shuttle was in orbit, said Maj. Gen. John Barry, a member of the Columbia Accident Investigation Board overseeing the inquiry into the ship's breakup on Feb. 1. A missing panel might have created a vulnerable spot on the wing where hot gases could get inside as the ship slid through the atmosphere on its landing attempt.

The North Harford girls soccer team had early trouble as C. Milton Wright scored in the 15th minute. But Lauren Thomas had several scoring chances for the visiting Hawks and finally tied the game late in the second half. Thomas scored on a 20-yard shot from the left wing with 2:48 left in regulation, and No. 9 North Harford hung on through sudden-death overtime for a 1-1 tie against No. 8 C.M. Wright in an Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference game last night. The tie left North Harford with an 8-1-2 record and a 2-0-2 mark in the UCBAC's Susquehanna Division.

Union Maj. Gen. John F. Reynolds wrote no memoir as he hurried his 1st Corps infantrymen toward Gettysburg at dawn on July 1, 1863, but it is likely that his thoughts were filled with a commander's concern for the impending battle and a man's concern for the defense of his home. Reynolds, whose home was in Lancaster, Pa., only 50 miles away, arrived on the field at Gettysburg about 10 a.m., just in time to strengthen the thin line of Union cavalrymen who had been defending the approaches to the town since dawn.
