Posted 2/14/2018 in National Columns

I am a child of domestic violence. As a boy, I couldn't fall asleep until I heard my father return from his nocturnal ramblings.


Leonard Pitts: In Trump they trust

Posted 2/10/2018 in National Columns

So apparently this is now Republican Party doctrine: You can't trust the news media. They're biased. You can't trust the CIA. They're hacks. You can't trust the Justice Department. It's unfair. You can't trust the FBI. It's disgraceful. But you can trust Donald Trump.


Leonard Pitts: The question Trump failed to answer

Posted 2/7/2018 in National Columns

This is about a question Donald Trump failed to answer. Granted, there are a lot of those, but this was a particularly tough one.


Leonard Pitts: Understanding is the last thing they want

Posted 2/3/2018 in National Columns

What we've got here is failure to communicate. Except it's not really failure. It's actually unwillingness to communicate, fear of what communication might mean. After all, if you communicate, you might understand some painful truths -- and then where would you be?


Leonard Pitts: Sisters are doin' it for us all

Posted 1/31/2018 in National Columns

Sisters are doin' it for themselves. That, you may remember, was the title of a hit 1985 pop song. But 33 years later, pop has become prophecy.


Leonard Pitts: What if Donald Trump were smart?

Posted 1/27/2018 in National Columns

It is likely not a question you've given a lot of thought. After all, the urgency of our ongoing disaster leaves little time for speculation. One is too busy tallying up the damage that's happening to worry about the damage that could.


Leonard Pitts: One year later...

Posted 1/20/2018 in Local Columns

And here we are, one year later.


Leonard Pitts: Journalism's (and the public's) responsibility

Posted 1/19/2018 in National Columns

I was wrong. Years ago, people used to ask me what journalists should do to combat the nation's drift toward "factish" and "truthy" logic.


Leonard Pitts: King's words still ring true ... 61 years on

Posted 1/15/2018 in National Columns

A few words on the difficulty of voting while black.


Leonard Pitts: 'Fire and Fury' is the book we got, not the one we needed

Posted 1/11/2018 in National Columns

America desperately wanted this book. America desperately needed it, too.


Leonard Pitts: 2017, the year the last norms fell

Posted 1/6/2018 in National Columns

It really wasn't all that bad. That, at least, was the consensus response from a dozen historians to whom Politico posed a question in the waning hours of the old year: "Was 2017 the Craziest Year in U.S. Political History?"


Leonard Pitts: Donald Trump's meaningless tribute to Rosa Parks

Posted 12/6/2017 in National Columns

Here comes the most meaningless sentence you'll read today: Last week, Donald Trump paid tribute to Rosa Parks.


Leonard Pitts: Trump's an empty vessel with nothing to say

Posted 12/2/2017 in Local Columns

"The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye and 'slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God.'" -- Ronald Reagan, Jan. 28, 1986

Go ahead and laugh. It is funny, after all.


Leonard Pitts: What does it mean to be a man?

Posted 11/25/2017 in National Columns

So I guess you can take men off the endangered species list.


Leonard Pitts: An accused child molester for U.S. Senate? Really?

Posted 11/22/2017 in National Columns

So maybe we should just cancel Thanksgiving this year?


Leonard Pitts: As if you're not worried enough ... enter Brett Talley

Posted 11/15/2017 in National Columns

You are not worried enough.


Leonard Pitts: Why are we OK with mass shootings?

Posted 11/9/2017 in National Columns

I hate mass shootings.


Leonard Pitts: Men must do better, be better

How many is this now?
