I find it unbelievable that Dan Rodricks , in his Sunday column, thinks that the laws God gave us to live by are antiquated ("Ben Carson's conservative views are drawn from the Bible" Mar 30). The problems we face in this world today come from that same line of thinking. If we never turned our backs on God, we wouldn't live in a world on the edge of self destruction that exists today. All I can do is pray that the Lord opens Mr. Rodricks' eyes to the truth before He returns to take His church home.

Democrat Anthony G. Brown and Republican Larry Hogan traded accusations of deception Tuesday in their first debate before the Nov. 4 election for governor. The rivals clashed repeatedly over social issues, education, the environment and Maryland's economy. Hogan bristled at allegations in Brown's campaign ads about his position on abortion and birth control. "He says that I oppose abortion even in the cases of rape and incest, and that I want to take away birth control. That is just absolutely not true," Hogan said.

As usual, our Republican friends from Cecil County wish to manipulate the truth to make their case that repealing the 14th Amendment is not racially motivated ("Repeal 14th Amendment," Readers Respond, Aug. 18). Ron Wirsing, once 28 of the 37 existing states ratified the 14th Amendment there was no need for the other states to rush to ratify. You only need three-fourths of the states to ratify an amendment for it to become law. The 14th amendment was stupid? The 14th Amendment was Congress' way of overruling the Dred Scott decision and the basis for Brown vs. Board of Education.

She has suffered the loss that every one of us who has a child fears the most, and Nina Epps wants to know who killed her 3-year-old child, McKenzie Elliott. We may have not pulled the trigger, but I believe that every one of us in this city and many people beyond its borders share responsibility in this little girl's death and the roll call of death that occurs in Baltimore every year. The person who pulled the trigger did not intend to kill a child last Friday. None of us did. But we have all participated.

In the article "Bachmann's loose 'facts' stacking up" (Oct. 28) the writer criticizes Rep. Michele Bachmann's statement about taxes being less when she was a child. The writer uses the example of a couple earning $379,150 and being taxed 35 percent today and taxed at 59 percent 50 years ago. The problem with this argument is that a person making that much money today would have been earning approximately $52,000 50 years ago if you take inflation into account, which is the only way to do a fair comparison.

I am a huge supporter of Pat McDonough and The Sun is ripping him apart for the truth he states ("Baltimore and bigotry," May 18). I read another article recently in your paper that now after Mr. McDonough brought this situation out in the open, MayorStephanie Rawlings-Blakeis going to add additional police officers to the area ("Mayor has a look as police presence rises in downtown," May 20). At least the city is now taking action by adding more police. I will not go to the Inner Harbor area anymore - last time was about five years ago, and I know it's worse than it was then.

Pisces 02.19-03.20 Ignoring a problem does not make it go away. You hate confrontation, but that doesn't mean you should turn a blind eye. Give it some thought and handle the situation. Aries 03.21-04.19 Boldly go where you've never gone before when gutsy Mars give you extra confidence. An adventurer such as yourself can never have too much of a good thing. Taurus 04.20-05.20 Saturn is making you want bigger and better things today. You're no longer satisfied with your apartment, car or your significant other.

I do not oppose the Archdiocese of Baltimore's stand for life ("Church: Clinic signs are unlawful," March 30). I oppose the lying by omission. A lie is still a sin. A place that offers a service needs to be honest about the service being offered. It's called truth in advertising. And as long as the archbishop insists on being politically active, he needs to be a good citizen and give up his tax exempt status. Freedom of speech is a right that needs to be matched by responsibility.

When, at long last, will people understand that the left is boring? The question came to mind as I was dipping in and out of Oliver Stone's miasmic 700-plus-page tome. I'll never read the whole thing, and not because it's a left-wing screed full of slimy distortions about the evils of the United States (though that doesn't help). It's that it's boring. Mr. Stone and co-author Peter Kuznick call their book "The Untold History of the United States," except, again, it isn't. This story has been told countless times before.

Thank goodness Rep. Elijah Cummings has been appointed to the House Select Committee investigating Benghazi ( "Pelosi appoints Cummings to lead Democrats on Benghazi panel," May 21). He will quickly show everyone the answers that are contained in the 25,000 pages of documents already produced and thus be able to prove that this committee is just wasting its time. Marjorie L.

A few words about the "poor door. " Maybe you already know about this. Maybe you read on Slate, saw on Colbert or heard on NPR how a developer qualified for tax benefits under New York City's Inclusionary Housing Program by agreeing to add to its new luxury building on the Upper West Side set a number of "affordable" apartments. How the company won permission to build that building with two entrances, one in front for the exclusive use of upper-income residents, another, reportedly in the alley, for residents of more modest means.

Writing at the Daily Dot , EJ Dickson confesses to perpetrating a fraud : planting a false entry in Wikipedia about the Amelia Bedelia children's books saying that the character is based on a maid in Cameroon. She was, she concedes, stoned at the time and now is horrified to discover that her little lark has become so widespread that it is believed by the nephew of the late author of the Amelia Bedelia books.  She consults a Wikipedia editor, who explains that "subtle vandalism" is unlikely to be detected because it doesn't look outrageous and there is no "systematic review system" on Wikipedia.  Here is the salient passage: " Ultimately, what I learned from my inadvertent Wikipedia hoax was not that Wikipedia itself isn't reliable, but that so many people believe it is. My lie - because that's what it was, really - was repeated by dozens of sources, from bloggers to academics to journalists.

In a scene from the documentary "A Place of Truth," opening Thursday at the Creative Alliance , Abi Mott sits behind a small desk on a city street corner with a sign that reads: "Name a price. Pick a subject. Get a poem. " She is greeted by a customer and after a quick exchange of money; she enters words on a vintage typewriter. Moments later, Mott hands her customer a short poem and smiles. "This is what she wrote for me," says the customer, eyes filled with tears, as she begins to read the lyrics out loud.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, like so many elected officials, would rather defend his party at all cost and retain his position of power than defend truth and his sworn oath ( "Benghazi probe puts Cummings back in spotlight," May 2). It is obvious that the Obama administration's incompetence and lack of leadership has resulted in bungled situation after situation, including the response to the terrorist attack in Libya. The fight took several hours yet planes and other resources less than two hours away in Italy remained grounded.

A few months after adopting a kitten, David Grimm and his fiancee huddled late one evening in the waiting room of a Towson emergency vet. Jasper, their normally rambunctious gray-and-white kitten, was suffering from acute kidney failure. Although the couple had only had Jasper for a short time, he had become a member of their family. Facing the prospect of his death was devastating. Grimm looked around the waiting room. Families were keeping the sorts of grim vigils usually associated with hospital emergency rooms.

Ouch! Apparently the truth hurts, as evidenced by the visceral reaction to last week's "Doonesbury" cartoons. The strip dealt honestly and pulled no punches about the utter hypocrisy and lack of morals of the so-called "right to life" zealots. They're upset that Gary Trudeau dared to utter the truth about anti-abortion fanatics - that they don't so much hate abortion as they hate women, especially women who refuse to live their lives barefoot, pregnant and chained to a stove.

I agree with Del Pat McDonough for telling it like it is ("Baltimore and bigotry," May 22). He is the only delegate who has the guts to tell the truth. He was just calling it as it was. You have no right to get on him for that. Delegate McDonough didn't do anything wrong, the mob did. By the way, I didn't need anyone to tell me what color the mob was. I knew just by hearing the 911 tapes. It is amazing to me, when black people do bad things, The Sun will always blame it the other guy. And yes, if the mob was white, The Sun would have been all over it along with the mayor, police, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton.

David Zurawik 's column ( "'Fox and Friends' mistreats Elijah Cummings on IRS emails story ," April 18) is interesting and is quite obviously written by an Obama administration supporter. Fair enough. It didn't take me very long to take umbrage at what the author had written - as a matter of fact, it was paragraph number one! To be fair here, I cannot recall the context of the Fox News show during which these "transgressions" were to have taken place, so in fairness to Mr. Zurawik and the Fox crew, I will not comment on that.
