Jackie Gingrich Cushman:
The Value of Awe

Victor Davis Hanson:
Knocking On War's Door
The next president will face a terrible dilemma. To restore order, he or she will have to convince our allies that we are recommitted to their security.

On November 11, 2011, Congress voted to award a Congressional Gold Medal for the 20,000 black Marines of Montford Point, the first blacks to serve as Marines. I write about Staff Sgt. Elder -- and my struggle to understand him -- in my latest book, "Dear Father, Dear Son."

Before he passed away recently, John M. Templeton, the distinguished physician and philanthropist, questioned: "Should we tolerate a public educational system with its entrenched self-interest which virtually every inner-city parent knows is destroying any hope or possibility of their children achieving meaningful opportunity in a 21st-century economy?"

Condi Isn't Running: Get Over It
One of my ongoing political passions is the California US Senate race.

Pro-Abortion NAACP Forgets Free Speech Is a Civil Right And Loses Lawsuit
