Leonard Pitts: Deny terrorists their power

Posted 5/25/2013 in National Columns

I have not seen the video. Not saying I won't, but for now, I've chosen not to. To rush online and seek out cellphone footage of two fanatics with machetes who butchered a British soldier in London on Wednesday, to watch them standing there, hands painted red with his blood, speaking for the cameras, would feel like an act of complicity, like giving them what they want, like being a puppet yanked by its strings.

 

 

Wyatt Emmerich: Race-based politics carries the day in Jackson mayoral election

Posted 5/25/2013 in National Columns

The election of Chokwe Lumumba as the Democratic nominee for Jackson mayor has got everybody talking about race. That's not a good thing. If I'm not mistaken, white Republican northeast Jackson voted overwhelmingly for the blacker of the two candidates. So exactly how can this be about race?

Froma Harrop: Bangladesh and us

Posted 5/18/2013 in National Columns

You know a corner's been turned when someone in a legion of foreign sweatshop workers is given a face. That's happened in Bangladesh, home of hideous factory conditions -- as seen in the ruins of Rana Plaza, a former eight-story work warren. Death toll: over 1,100.

 

 

George Will: In IRS scandal, echoes of Watergate

Posted 5/18/2013 in National Columns

This administration aggressively hawked the fiction that the Benghazi attack was just an excessively boisterous movie review. Now we are told that a few wayward souls in Cincinnati, with nary a trace of political purpose, targeted for harassment political groups with "tea party" and "patriot" in their titles. The Post has reported that the IRS also targeted groups that " criticized the government and sought to educate Americans about the U.S. Constitution."

Kathleen Parker: IRS, AP scandals bring tea partyers, 'lamestream media' together

Posted 5/15/2013 in National Columns

Breaking news: Conservative organizations suddenly have found common cause with one of their favorite objects of contempt -- the benighted Mainstream Media.

 

 

Rheta Johnson: Why we should all love Willie

Posted 5/11/2013 in National Columns

After learning from Internet "news" that real pearls feel gritty to the teeth and sago palms are poisonous to dogs, I decided to play a little music. I can't handle the information age.

 

 

Leonard Pitts: Ignoring the real while fighting the imaginary

Posted 5/11/2013 in National Columns

It should've been the shot heard around the world. Chances are, you didn't hear it. An ominous sort of history was made last week near Austin, Texas, but it seems to have largely escaped notice. There was some media coverage, yes, but less than, say, Lindsay Lohan's latest stint in rehab, certainly less than you'd think for something whose ramifications will likely shadow us for years.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: Yes, Ted Cruz is Hispanic 'enough'

Posted 5/11/2013 in National Columns

Enough with this "enough" business. Latest to the question of whether a person is sufficiently identifiable as belonging to a particular demographic is Ted Cruz -- the conservative Texas senator who happens to be of Hispanic descent.
