Leonard Pitts: When women attack men -- a double standard

Posted 5/21/2014 in National Columns

What if he had smacked her one? She's going after him with fists and feet. What if he had defended himself in kind? Or what if he had been the one who attacked her without physical provocation?

 

 

Our View: One more example of city's misplaced priorities

Thomas Sowell: Poverty and snow storms

Posted 5/20/2014 in National Columns

Froma Harrop: Other paths to better pay

Posted 5/20/2014 in National Columns

Did you read about investors in Chipotle Mexican Grill rejecting the outlandish pay package the fast-food chain's two CEOs had cooked up for themselves?

Posted 5/19/2014 in National Columns

The federal government sues Mississippi fairly often. Less often, Mississippi sues America -- but it does happen.

Kathleen Parker: Bill Maher speaks his mind, unfortunately

Posted 5/17/2014 in National Columns

When my neighbor gleefully reported that Bill Maher had dedicated a searing monologue to me for a column I wrote about the Donald Sterling/Cliven Bundy rants, my first thought was, Nah . If I tussled with everybody who tossed a brick through the window, I'd never get the draperies hung.

 

 

Susan Estrich: When a woman gets fired
