Leonard Pitts: Republicans dance close to line in regards to Planned Parenthood

Posted 12/3/2015 in National Columns

Our question of the day: Who -- or what -- should take the blame?

 

 

Kathleen Parker: Premature finger-pointing after the Planned Parenthood shooting

Posted 12/2/2015 in National Columns

Predictably, the killing rampage at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood facility has prompted a political scrimmage of the usual sort.

 

 

Thomas Sowell: A resurgence of intolerance

Posted 12/1/2015 in National Columns

Storm trooper tactics by bands of college students making ideological demands across the country, and immediate preemptive surrender by college administrators -- such as at the University of Missouri recently -- bring back memories of the 1960s, for those of us old enough to remember what it was like being there, and seeing first-hand how painful events unfolded.

 

 

Susan Estrich: God bless America

Posted 12/1/2015 in National Columns

With images of the carnage in Paris and the shuttering of Brussels flashing on every screen, it is hard to take to heart the president's urgings not to give in to fear.

 

 

Let pharmacies prescribe birth control

Posted 11/30/2015 in National Columns

Back in 1933, Rep. Walter Pierce of Oregon introduced a bill in Congress to let doctors discuss birth control with their patients. The need for such a bill showed how controversial the subject was. But this was the heart of the Great Depression, when impoverished Americans could barely feed the children they had.

Posted 11/30/2015 in National Columns

There's nothing new about the need for buyers to beware, but the Internet has provided a whole new arena for deception.

 

 

Other editors: The twin towers of denial

Posted 11/30/2015 in National Columns

Donald Trump loves to pick on Hillary Clinton. That's no surprise, given Trump is a Republican running for president and Clinton is a Democrat doing the same thing.

 

Kathleen Parker: We look in the mirror and see ... Donald Trump

Posted 11/28/2015 in National Columns

Surely he's finally gone and done it now. Donald Trump, insulter extraordinaire, was bound to cross a line too far. Two days before Thanksgiving, he made many people feel nostalgic for the merely obnoxious Trump when he mocked a reporter with a physical disability, displaying a level of cruelty and meanness heretofore only suspected.

 

Charlie Mitchell: Cultivating an attitude of gratitude

Posted 11/28/2015 in National Columns

OXFORD -- Halloween. Thanksgiving. Christmas. Bam, bam, bam. The trifecta of holidays. The middle one was this week. Like a middle child, it becomes lost in the shuffle.

 

 

Froma Harrop: What happened to Jeb Bush? Too much money

Posted 11/28/2015 in National Columns

Jeb Bush has dropped into single digits in the polls -- and that's just among Republicans in his home state of Florida. What happened to the man with all the money, top name recognition and, according to last year's political sages, a clear shot at his party's presidential nomination?

 

 

Froma Harrop: Are you happy?

Posted 11/25/2015 in National Columns

Kathleen Parker: Crazy is as crazy does

Posted 11/25/2015 in National Columns

One week, Beirut and Paris; the next week, Mali. The nightmare is young. Where next?

 

 

Patrick Buchanan: Will Europe man up?

Posted 11/24/2015 in National Columns

If the purpose of terrorism is to terrify, the Islamic State had an extraordinary week. Brussels, capital of the EU and command post of mighty NATO, is still in panic and lockdown.
