Edward Hopper: Poet of the ordinary

Kevin E. Dayhoff

Edward Hopper's "Nighthawks," 1942, oil on canvas, depicts a voyeuristic portrayal of ambiguous urban alienation and impersonalization as three customers and a soda jerk spend time together in the harsh glare of artificial light in the middle of the night.

The voyeuristic stark world of American Scene realist artist Edward Hopper was recently displayed at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

Rove and Snow

Roy Meachum

Karl Rove and Tony Snow have announced their intention to leave George W. Bush's White House. They join the ranks of counselor Dan Bartlett, budget director Rob Portman, political director Sara Taylor, and deputy national security advisers J.D. Crouch and Meghan O'Suillvan.

Vietnam Today - Part Two

Tom McLaughlin

When we arrived in Hanoi, the first thing I did was book both my daughter Christine and myself on tours. Everyday was a different one, most lasting a full day. Little did I realize all of them had something to do with a Buddhist Shrine.

Real ID Real Frightening

John W. Ashbury

Unless the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) - or Congress itself - makes an exception, or postpones the effective date of the Real ID sections of a funding bill passed in 2005, Maryland's drivers' licenses will no longer be acceptable as proof positive of who you say you are as of May 11, 2008, just eight months away.

Vietnam Today - Part One

Tom McLaughlin

The man in the crisp white uniform gave me a hard nudge. I looked around quizzically. A person behind me whispered, "You were talking too loud!" I nodded and lowered my voice. The line moved agonizingly slow in the 99-100 degree heat of Hanoi, Vietnam.

Dictator Pair

Roy Meachum

This mid-Atlantic region is blessed. One John "Lennie" Thompson may be, it figures, all this democracy can support. But we apparently have two; the other operates in Virginia. For those who don't read the Washington Post I'll explain.

What's in a Name?

George Wenschhof

Anger, fear, and hate fuel much of the political discussions that take place today. Labeling an opponent - or an issue - with a moniker that has a preconceived definition has become commonplace as a method in garnering support for a position or a candidate. The art and adroitness of conciliation has been shoved aside with "it's my way or the highway" type of mentality.

The Path of Destruction

Chris Cavey

Daily we march closer and closer to the O'Malley special tax session of the Maryland General Assembly and the financial repercussions the average citizen will endure. Significant tax increases can be avoided or abated if a little common sense is applied to state government.

The Subprime Mortgage Mania Mess

Kevin E. Dayhoff

After several weeks of Wall Street volatility, it appears that the market has hopefully finally exhaled and calmed down.

What Was It?

Roy Meachum

The carnival at Iowa State University over the weekend had absolutely nothing to do with the nation's democratic process. Regard the $35 price to vote. Something like that could have occurred to Republicans from that corn-fed state.

Sound Character Building

Farrell Keough

Those halcyon days of summer are quickly coming to an end. The lazy days of little responsibility, long evenings of late sunsets, and friends available at all times of the day. Yep, just around the corner is another year when school books and dirty looks will abound.
