Possumhaw: The art of spring cleaning

Posted 3/14/2016 in Local Columns

Kathleen Parker: Are you starting to soften on Donald Trump? Don't.

Slimantics: A case of questionable answers

Posted 3/13/2016 in Local Columns

Roses and thorns

Susan Estrich: It's the delegates, stupid

Posted 3/13/2016 in National Columns

Whenever I hear some otherwise smart person explain to me how Joe Biden is going to march in and become the Democratic nominee, or how "they" -- whoever they are -- are going to come in and save the Republican Party from Donald Trump, I pretty much know that person has never been to a convention or met a delegate, let alone tried to convince one to be for someone other than the person he or she was elected to support.
