Patrick Buchanan: Nationalism and populism propel Trump

Posted 2/24/2016 in National Columns

As the returns came in from South Carolina Saturday night, showing Donald Trump winning a decisive victory, a note of nervous desperation crept into the commentary.

Possumhaw: I may be dying

Posted 2/22/2016 in Local Columns

To be honest, I'm not liking this New Year's Resolution very much at all. It's been 66 days now since I resolved not to buy any apparel, shoes or jewelry, nothing to decorate myself up with for a whole year.

Jamie Stiehm: The house that Scalia built

Posted 2/20/2016 in National Columns

Two waves broke last week: a pair of deaths on our national shore that changed everything. They are inseparable in the annals of our time. Goodbye to all that a Supreme Court Justice wrought, and the House of Bush brought. If only it were that simple.

Lynn Spruill: Legislative maneuvering for model school bewildering

Posted 2/19/2016 in Local Columns
