I believe it was Paris Hilton who ushered in the era of talentless, filthy wealthy television "pseudo-heroes. " Then came the Kardashians, who dedicated themselves to propagating the concept that talent is a very overrated trait and positioning the Kardashian surname as a household name. In a Sun article, it was noted that NBC's Today Show failed to honor the Sept. 11 moment of silence, observed on the eleventh anniversary of the historic and hallowed day in American history. Instead, they chose to air an interview with Kris Jenner (for the ill-informed, she is the Kardashians' mother.

Thirty years ago, on its opening day in 1984, Donald Trump stood in a dark topcoat on the casino floor at Atlantic City's Trump Plaza, crowing that his new investment was the finest building in Atlantic City and possibly the nation. Last week, the Trump Plaza folded and the Trump Taj Mahal filed for bankruptcy, leaving some 1,000 employees without jobs. Mr. Trump, meanwhile, was on Twitter claiming he had "nothing to do with Atlantic City," and praising himself for his "great timing" in getting out of the investment.

Thanks to Susan Reimer ("Women voters fend off the Neanderthals," Nov. 8) for reminding me that I am in the Neanderthal-Barbarian Party. Her recent rant shows how it is more important for her to feel safe in the doctor's exam room than to "kick start this economy. " All the other issues, in her mind, pale in comparison to making sure any woman can get an abortion. I agree with abortion rights, but not at the expense of our economy, our military strength, our standing in the world and ensuring the U.S. will be here for another 236 years.

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz has shown no shyness in the past about standing behind the school system's construction and renovation plans in the face of community opposition - case in point, his infamous "my job to talk, yours to listen" press conference at the ground breaking for a new elementary school in Mays Chapel last year. Yet on Friday he authored a sweeping re-write of Superintendent Dallas Dance's plans for additions, modernization and new construction involving three elementary schools and a middle school in the greater Towson area, plans that had drawn community opposition for everything from traffic to the destruction of century-old trees.

Apparently, Gov. Martin O'Malley has three bosses: President Barack Obama, his own political aspirations and the citizens of Maryland ("O'Malley pays a visit to Iowa's core Democrats," Sept. 17). Sadly, they are listed in the exact order of his priorities. John R. Hussar Jr., Bel Air

At first, I thought The Donald was only joking when he questioned President Obama's birthplace. But he's been ramping up the rhetoric pretty fierce in the last couple of days, including appearances on "The View" and, his favorite spot, Fox News. Here he is on "Fox & Friends" this morning. He reiterated his disbelief that Obama was born in the United States and called on the president to produce his birth certificate.  Calling Obama "this guy," Trump stated that he believes the path he's investigating is turning out to be very important.  Here are some choice quotes:  • "This guy either has a birth certificate or he doesn't.

I just finished reading the My Word segment in the Feb. 28 issue of the Columbia Flier. I don't think that I have ever seen the issue of abortion presented in such an elegant, thoughtful and straight forward manner. For many years, I have watched as medical technology has progressed in virtually every area including pre-natal and premature birth care. I wondered how pro-abortion advocates could possibly oppose the eventual reality of medical advances...

Real estate mogul Donald Trump has put his name on water, perfume, watches, even menswear. But that's not enough for The Donald. He's planning a home invasion. "Now the public can not only wear my clothes, they can sit on my couch," Trump said in a statement. Lexington Home Brands will add "Trump Home" to its stable of licensees, which include Tommy Bahama, Liz Claiborne and Bob Timberlake. The collection, to be presented at the April 2007 High Point Market, will include traditional and contemporary styles.

In recognizing that for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby can hold religious beliefs that trump secular laws like the Affordable Care Act's requirement that women have access to contraceptives without out-of-pocket costs, the Supreme Court has moved the nation in an unwelcome direction. Differentiating between religious organizations and private companies used to be a straightforward matter (and a practice dating back to English common law), but now that distinction is no longer so clear.

Problems in the Department of Veterans Affairs' medical system have been years in the making, and it's shameful that it took a scandal like the one now engulfing the department to prompt Congress to act. But the bi-partisan deal announced Thursday by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Arizona Sen. John McCain appears to be a solid effort to put veterans' needs, not politics, at the forefront of the national response to the debacle. Inspectors general have found thousands of instances of veterans who had to endure long waits for care and cases in which VA officials sought to cover up the delays through secret wait-lists and other means.

Two years ago, Republican Del. Neil Parrott and MdPetitions.com had become so adept at petitioning Maryland laws to referendum that some Democrats, Gov. Martin O'Malley included, urged the General Assembly to make it tougher to do. How foolish that looks now. Over the weekend, the conservative group came up short in its efforts to petition to referendum the transgender rights law passed this year by the legislature. MdPetitions.com had only to produce 18,500 signatures by midnight on Saturday - a goal the organization had little trouble meeting previously when it petitioned same-sex marriage or Maryland's version of the Dream Act in recent years.

For Southern Maryland, the Patuxent River Naval Air Station is an economic engine like no other. It accounts for $6.6 billion in economic activity, including 41,185 jobs, so it's small wonder that elected leaders from that region of the state are extremely protective of it, and that includes House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer. But at what cost? One of the more curious events of the most recent General Assembly session was the passage of legislation that would bar the Maryland Public Service Commission from approving a wind-powered generating facility between now and July 1 of next year within a 56-mile radius of the Navy base.

"You can get killed just for living in your American skin. " -- Bruce Springsteen On Aug. 7, 1930, two young black men were lynched in Marion, Ind. A photographer named Lawrence Beitler had a studio across the street from the lynching tree. He came out and snapped what became an iconic photo, which he made into a postcard and sold. It shows Thomas Shipp and Abram Smith hanging dead and their executioners, faces clearly visible, milling about as if at a picnic. Though authorities possessed this damning photographic evidence, they never arrested anyone for the crime.

Guess we can all stop wondering what the New York Yankees are going to do with the $25 million annual increase in their national television revenues. They spent almost that much per year on Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka , if you combine their reported seven-year, $155 million deal with the $20 million posting fee they must pay to Japan's Rakuten Golden Eagles to pry him out of his existing contract. That's just crazy, of course, but why should anyone be surprised? Not only did the Yankees get that boost from the new national TV contracts that kick in this season, but they also will save about that much if Alex Rodriguez and his lawyers don't find a federal judge to strike down his one-year Biogenesis suspension.

The train wreck of Maryland's Affordable Care Act insurance exchange should have been no surprise to Gov. Martin O'Malley, Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown or anyone else responsible for its creation. That's the unmistakable conclusion from a Washington Post article on Sunday based on not-previously disclosed documents and interviews with key participants. The Post's report fleshes out the story of dysfunction revealed in records obtained last month by The Sun through a public information request and leaves no doubt that state officials were warned repeatedly and in detail that the website was, in one former official's words, "a disaster waiting to happen.

Lee, N.J., to New York City. Christie fired Bridget Anne Kelly after emails surfaced exposing her involvement in closing the lanes a part of political payback against Ft.
