Kathleen Parker: After speech debacle, the Trump campaign leaves Melania out to dry

Imitation may be the highest form of flattery, but plagiarism, not so much.

Patrick Buchanan: Is the Party Over for Bushism?

Posted 7/19/2016 in National Columns

Neither George W. Bush, the Republican Party nominee in 2000 and 2004, nor Jeb, the dethroned Prince of Wales, will be in Cleveland. Nor will John McCain or Mitt Romney, the last two nominees.

 

Possumhaw: Things that matter

Posted 7/18/2016 in Local Columns

Just inside the door of the Missionary Baptist Church I saw a white man to the far left, so I turned right. I didn't want us to "clump up," so I asked a beautiful young woman with long eyelashes if anyone was sitting next to her.

Leonard Pitts: Police are not the problem, we are
