    The Orioles' blues, or what happens when waiting for the Machado trade is the most interesting part of season

    Now is the summer of our discontent made gloriously awful by the Baltimore Orioles. Major League Baseball’s All-Star break is when fans traditionally step back and assess where their team stands.

    Get a grip, Trump haters

    Many of us are sick to death of the moaning and groaning about President Donald Trump and what a lying narcissist he is (“How to stop Trump’s lie machine,” July 18).

    Trump gives bad immigration advice — just ask the first lady

    To quote President Donald Trump’s latest “gems” regarding immigration, “I do not think it’s good for Europe. And I don’t think it’s good for our country.

    Pitts: A simple traffic stop left Ayanna Cruver terrified

    Two weeks ago, a black woman driving alone in Princeton, La., was pulled over for no apparent reason. But she was not shot and killed. Or hauled from her car and body-slammed. Or even arrested for getting snippy. The officer explained that she was driving under the speed limit, something he said...

    Reich: Trump's infrastructure scam

    At a roundtable discussion with state transportation officials last Friday, Donald Trump said America's aging roads, bridges, railways and water systems were being "scoffed at and laughed" at.
