  • TEA PARTY: LEARN FROM AL GORE

    Chris McDaniel, candidate for the U.S. Senate from Mississippi, lost the Republican runoff to incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran last month, and now he is being led down a primrose path to political oblivion. McDaniel's passionate supporters think that a moment of crisis for the country is a good time to…

  • Bombs on Jerusalem

    Jerusalem used to be safe. Rockets were fired aimed at both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv this week, as Israel launched its own offensive in Gaza. How do they live like this, a friend asks, after speaking with colleagues in Israel. There is, I suppose, a positive side to the state of uncertainty that…

  • Impeachment, a Bridge Too Far

    Impeachment is being brought up by Republicans outraged over Barack Obama's usurpations of power and unilateral rewriting of laws. Democrats are talking impeachment to rally a lethargic base to come out and vote this fall to prevent Republicans from taking control of the Senate, and with it the…

  • GOING FOR A RIDE WITH CLARE BOOTHE LUCE

    To my amazement, the hostess asked me if I would give Clare Boothe Luce a ride, as she lived just across Virginia Avenue from me. It pictures Clare in most of the usual ways -- including her extraordinary ambition.

  • TIMES ARE TOUGH, AS USUAL

    Russia, loaded with nuclear weapons and resentment, is looking menacingly at Ukraine. The archduke has been assassinated, Austria-Hungary is looking to Germany for support, a blank check is on offer, and before long Russia and France will have mobilized. The year 1864 was one of titanic battles…

  • HOBBY LOBBY DECISION IS NOT ABOUT RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

    Why are we still arguing over contraception? Of all the mind-blowing medical advances of the last 50 years -- in-utero surgery, genetic testing, face transplants -- why is it that the sale and use of convenient, reliable birth control pills and devices still sparks such controversy? The Supreme…

  • Nixon's 'Southern Strategy' and a Liberal Big Lie

    "For the first time since President Richard M. Nixon's divisive 'Southern strategy' that sent whites to the Republican Party and blacks to the Democrats ..." began a New York Times story last week. Thus has one of the big lies of U.S. political history morphed into a cliche — that Richard Nixon…

  • Happy Fourth Despite It All

    As the son of immigrants to Germany, he wasn't accepted by his peers. The Obama administration is confronting the consequences of its unilateral decision to grant permanent residency to the children of illegal immigrants as a wave of unaccompanied minors is dropped at our borders. …

  • THINK REFORM, NOT REVOLUTION, THIS FOURTH OF JULY

    I admit to a slight depression this week before the Glorious Fourth -- what my beloved mother used to call "the blues" (no relation to New Orleans or Chicago) -- whenever I read the newspapers. It's a ways from there to Ukraine, where pugilist Putin behaves more like a guy from Joey's Gym in…

  • SOCCER: PART DEUX

    I was in Paris the night Algeria played Russia, prompting hordes of drunken Algerians to riot on the Champs Elysees, hanging out of cars, yelling and honking all night. As with Algeria's glorious 1-1 tie game against Russia, Team USA tied Portugal and lost to Germany -- and then advanced. The…

  • Love of Country

    Every four years, at some point in the presidential campaign, one candidate says something that leads the other to accuse him (or her) of challenging his (or her) patriotism, and then we have a 48-hour spat over who called who unpatriotic, and then we go back to the usual political game in which…

    The Public and Intergovernmental Affairs Office of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is very concerned.

  • Scope for Conscience

    The major media's account of the Supreme Court's decision in the Hobby Lobby case was typical of the way the case has been misreported from the start. The New York Times headline read, "Supreme Court Rejects Contraceptives Mandate for Some Corporations." Politico led with "SCOTUS sides with Hobby…

Before Congress takes up his proposal, both houses should demand that Obama explain exactly where he gets the constitutional authority to plunge us into what the…

  • TURMOIL IN IRAQ PUTS WORLD'S CULTURAL HERITAGE IN PERIL

    When I first traveled to Baghdad in 1973 as a foreign correspondent for the old Chicago Daily News, my visit was filled with surprises -- and I love surprises. First, in my second week in this "totally closed" country, where journalists would tear their hair and shout "AWRRAH!" at the apparent…

    No, this is not written in defense of Washington Post and Fox News pundit George Will, whose recent column on rape has drawn outrage and resulted in his ouster from the pages of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, where his syndicated musings had run for many years. Earlier this month, Will wrote, among…
