Apparently, The Sun's editors have a tough time choosing between protecting a political party or advocating common sense for the care of citizens and veterans alike. Dan Bongino's letter ( "Bongino: Sun's left-wing views show why print media are becoming irrelevant," May 31) describing the Sun as "circling the drain" is right on target. Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki's resignation was plastered all over - page 9? Bill Krehnbrink - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Elijah E. Cummings appeared to call Wednesday for U.S. Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to step down over a series of recent security breaches at the White House -- becoming the first member of Congress to do so -- but then later softened his stance on the matter. The Baltimore lawmaker, the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, used several national media appearances Wednesday to say he did not believe Pierson's testimony before his committee on Tuesday conveyed a sense of urgency in addressing the problems.

I was disappointed to read that Jason Hartling, the principal at Northwestern High School, resigned recently after just a few years at the helm ("City school system grapples with turnover of principals," Aug. 11). I met Mr. Hartling several years ago when I was monitoring the High School Assessment prep after-school program at Northwestern, and I was very impressed by his professionalism and his vision of what was needed to motivate his students to succeed. During various visits to the school, I was impressed by the faculty's' evident admiration for their leader and the students' respect for him. When he met students in the hallway, there were broad smiles on their faces as they greeted him, calling to mind the old adage "respect begets respect.

Secret Service director Julia A. Pierson did herself no favors this week when she appeared before a House subcommittee to explain why her agency so badly bungled the job of protecting the president. There's no excuse for the repeated lapses in security that put the president's life at risk, nor for the agency's attempts to hide the seriousness of the incidents afterward. Ms. Pierson finally acknowledged that today when she submitted her resignation as head of the agency. In the days leading up to her departure, Ms. Pierson had promised a thorough internal investigation of the matter, but that's not good enough.

The chief financial officer of Prince George's County public schools and his wife resigned Monday, after the Maryland Insurance Administration found that the couple committed fraud on their personal insurance. The school system is also ordering "external independent auditors to confirm there are no improprieties" relating to its $1.8 million budget, according to a statement issued by board chairman Segun Eubanks and schools chief executive Kevin Maxwell. The Baltimore Sun informed school officials Friday of the insurance agency's findings that chief financial officer Colby White, and his wife, Keisha White, an auditor for the schools, knowingly submitted false information to an insurance company last year in an attempt to receive payment for a lost diamond ring that another insurer had covered six months earlier.

This should have been a totally tall week for Baltimore - tall ships and Blue Angels for War of 1812 commemorations; the Orioles, ever closer to a division title, back home to play the Yankees; Derek Jeter bidding farewell to Camden Yards; the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium to face their biggest rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, Thursday night on national television. Big stuff, tall stuff, a real wow week in the life of Charm City. And it's all still true, except for the clouds left by the Ray Rice storm.

Maryland health exchange officials plan to contact every person who bought one of their insurance plans last year to get them to re-enroll in November. Most of the nearly 79,000 people who gained private coverage in the state under the Affordable Care Act were subsidized, and they will lose that benefit if they don't sign back up manually. Most people who do nothing will be automatically re-enrolled in the same or equivalent plans, according to Dr. Joshua M. Sharfstein, state health secretary and chairman of the exchange board.

On the 40th anniversary of Richard Nixon's resignation as president, his admission of guilt has finally been made public in a 1983 videotaped interview with him by an old White House aide. Speaking of the "smoking gun" White House tape in which he talked about raising hush money for the arrested Watergate burglars, Nixon tells aide Frank Gannon: "This was the final blow, the nail in the coffin. Although you didn't need another nail if you were already in the coffin, which we were.

On the occasion of this week's 40th anniversary of Richard Nixon'sresignation from the presidency, The Washington Post  sponsored a reunion featuring Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the Watergate reporters who "brought down" the 37th president. In fact, Nixon committed political suicide. He thought he could get away with what other politicians had done, but forgot the rules are different for Republicans. The Post event resembled a celebration with much laughter and stories about how Publisher Katharine Graham and Executive Editor Ben Bradlee had told the newsroom "no gloating" when it became apparent Nixon would resign.

Suzanne Mensh wants her job back. Whether she can have it is another question. Baltimore County's longtime clerk of the court inspired a stampede of interest in the $98,500-a-year position last month when she announced plans to retire at the end of May. More than a dozen candidates have applied to serve the six months left in her term, and one county councilman says he is considering a run for the office in November. Mensh says that it was the aspiration of Councilman Sam Moxley, a Catonsville Democrat who has been arrested for driving under the influence twice in the past four years, that led her to rescind her resignation.
