George Will | February 25, 2001

This Wednesday the court will hear arguments in another case which, if sensibly decided, might effectively refute the Medford, N.J., public school that considered Zachary's literary tastes in first grade unconstitutional.

David Limbaugh | February 24, 2001

Though I may be tempted to apologize for again discussing the perpetual motion machine known as the Clinton scandals, I refuse on the grounds that everyone else is doing it. And under liberal mores one cannot be guilty of something "if everyone else is doing it."

Robert Novak | February 24, 2001

Confidential reports from high-level Republican strategists convey apprehension that Florida, which narrowly gave the presidency to George W. Bush, is going in the opposite direction.

Kathleen Parker | February 24, 2001

You can't blame Carnell Smith for being a little ticked off. He was a good father, paid his child support on time, loved and cared for his little girl. That is, until he found out through DNA testing that he wasn't "Daddy."

Thomas Sowell | February 23, 2001

Ever since racial quotas in college admissions were banned by Proposition 209 in California and by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in Texas, academics and politicians have been racking their brains to come up with something that would allow quotas to continue under new names.

Michelle Malkin | February 23, 2001

President Bush wants to spend $5 billion on federal literacy programs. Can you spell b-o-o-n-d-o-g-g-l-e?

Jonah Goldberg | February 23, 2001

Here in Washington, D.C., there are thousands of foreign officials with diplomatic immunity. Generally, this raises few problems. One hitch, though, is that throughout Washington, foreign diplomats tend to park their cars wherever they want, secure in the knowledge that they'll never have to pay parking tickets or fines.

Mona Charen | February 23, 2001

Sign me up with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation on this one -- Eminem, who was nominated for four Grammys this year, is a creep of major proportions. His loathsome prattle is the most offensive fare since 2 Live Crew or Marilyn Manson.

Cal Thomas | February 23, 2001

It sounds like the stuff of cold war novels. An American - and not just an American but an FBI agent - is arrested and charged with spying for Russia.

Debra J. Saunders | February 23, 2001

"I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do is fulfill my profession." -- Hillary Clinton, 1992, regarding allegations that her Arkansas governor husband funneled money to her law firm.

Kathleen Parker | February 23, 2001

Every so often I question whether I've landed on the wrong planet. Or perhaps slipped into another dimension where perceptions are altered, where lies are truth, where yes means no, or the meaning of "is" is debatable.

Charles Krauthammer | February 23, 2001

The ostensible rationale is that a majority of Israelis want a government of national unity. But this is no government of national unity. This is a government of political convenience, a safety net for careerist politicians.

Ann Coulter | February 22, 2001

When I began swooning for George W. Bush during the Republican primaries, my friends warned me that I was going to have to eat my words. It's now a month into his presidency, and I'm even more doe-eyed about Bush than ever.

Thomas Sowell | February 22, 2001

The all-out attempt in the media to scare us away from tax cuts was epitomized by a Newsweek cover with the caption: "Bush's $1.6 trillion gamble."

Brent Bozell | February 22, 2001

You can tell a Republican lives in the White House. Remember how, during the Reagan-Bush era, the homeless problem in America dominated the news?

Larry Elder | February 22, 2001

The occasion: Black History Month. The setting: A hotel in the Bay area community of Emeryville. The forum: The Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, with 400 blacks in the audience.

Jonah Goldberg | February 22, 2001

Everything you are supposed to know about campaign finance reform is wrong. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that everything Sen. John McCain wants you to know about campaign finance reform is wrong.

Cal Thomas | February 22, 2001

Vice President Dick Cheney's West Wing office has freshly painted walls. There are no pictures (yet), which conveys a lack of pretension in this transformed White House. His answers are direct and sound un-focus-grouped.

Oliver North | February 22, 2001

Official Washington is patting itself on the back for arresting the latest Russian spy, Robert Philip Hanssen, a 27-year veteran special agent of the FBI.

Suzanne Fields | February 22, 2001

Bill Clinton used to be a Bubba, but he's a Bobo now. A Bobo, as everybody who read David Brooks "Bobos in Paradise" knows, is a yuppie who successfully merged the bohemian urges of the '60s with the acquisitive impulses of the '80s.

Maggie Gallagher | February 22, 2001

When it comes to art, there's the defensible and the indefensible.

Emmett Tyrrell | February 22, 2001

And so the civilized inhabitants of the Republic have suffered another outburst of Red Alerts from that sour minority of Neo-Puritans who, from the discomfort of their health-food shops and earth shoes, admonish the rest of us against having a good time.

George Will | February 22, 2001

The Brooklyn Museum of Art, like an infant squalling for adult attention, specializes in the naughtiness of the untalented.

Kathleen Parker | February 22, 2001

When I opened my newspaper Monday morning and saw the oversized, extra-bold headline, my immediate reaction was that the United States must have declared war, or the president had been assassinated. What else would command this kind of news treatment?

Robert Novak | February 22, 2001

The most enthusiastic congressional supporters of President Bush's proposed tax cut consider it much too small, but that's not all.

Michelle Malkin | February 21, 2001

For those of you without kids or MTV, it's the most popular form of dirty dancing these days with the under-30 crowd. No written description can really do the freak (also known as the "nasty") justice.

Jonah Goldberg | February 21, 2001

Oscar Wilde once said, "I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never any use to oneself." Well, that was certainly the case with me.

David Limbaugh | February 21, 2001

Recent news stories on former president Clinton and President Bush serve to contrast their styles and needs. Clinton can't seem to get enough media attention, and Bush appears content to escape the spotlight.

Mona Charen | February 21, 2001

Glancing through the morning paper, I noticed the following item: "Bomb Charges Against Boys Disturb Town."

Cal Thomas | February 21, 2001

The public is conflicted about a tax cut. An overwhelming majority want one but an equally overwhelming majority want to use the projected surplus to pay down the national debt.

Phyllis Schlafly | February 21, 2001

Tests, standards and accountability are being advocated as the solution to the problems of public school education. Those are such good words; why can't they do the job?

Frank Gaffney | February 21, 2001

The new Bush-Cheney team has rightly made rebuilding the U.S. military one of its top priorities. Unfortunately, its predecessor's legacy is not only one of leaving the armed forces in a deplorable state requiring such repairs.

Bruce Bartlett | February 21, 2001

A man-bites-dog story occurred on Feb. 18, when a group of rich people signed an ad in The New York Times opposing elimination of the estate tax.

William F. Buckley | February 21, 2001

One division of this social quandary is racial profiling -- what it says and what it does. John Derbyshire, writing in National Review, has brilliantly examined the question and its implications.

Jack Kemp | February 21, 2001

The human genome project shows there is no genetic way to tell races apart. For scientific purposes, race simply doesn't exist.

Kathleen Parker | February 21, 2001

Alabama child support collectors have let loose the dogs of war, and fathers-rights activists are crying havoc.

Walter E. Williams | February 20, 2001

What's an important priority for black politicians and civil-rights organizations? First, there's the Confederate flag that must be removed from public buildings in South Carolina, Georgia and Mississippi.

Brent Bozell | February 20, 2001

A couple of weeks ago, Media Life magazine ran an article on what it called the Dirty Dozen -- the television programs "that media (advertising) buyers (say) are the least appropriate for their clients."

Mona Charen | February 20, 2001

"Two senators announced bipartisan legislation Tuesday designed to build schoolchildren's character by teaching them about respect and responsibility." -- Associated Press.

Oliver North | February 20, 2001

During his campaign, George W. Bush promised the young men and women of our armed forces that "Help is on the way." This week, he began fulfilling that commitment.

Linda Chavez | February 20, 2001

On his recent trip to Mexico, President Bush announced he would appoint a high-level committee to discuss the issue. It's about time.

Bill Murchison | February 20, 2001

For the tax debate, we have to get really basic, really fast. The question at stake isn't simply: How do we finance government?

Jacob Sullum | February 20, 2001

James V. DeLong, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, likens online music swappers to "hordes of barbarians loot(ing) civilization."

Mon, Feb 19, 2001

Ann Coulter | February 19, 2001

Wholly apart from the comedic aspects of watching Clinton's erstwhile supporters take up the hard work of the Clinton-haters, it's kind of a relief to know that once he's out of power, no one likes him.

Debra J. Saunders | February 19, 2001

CNN's Larry King gave America a twisted Valentine. You might think it is rather sick for a TV show to celebrate marital betrayal on Valentine's Day. But wait, it's OK, because the adulterer was a celebrity.

John Leo | February 19, 2001

Two odd and recent news stories got little attention in the mainstream press. A Pennsylvania woman, fired after a long record of obnoxious behavior, sued her employer in federal court and won a key ruling.

Robert Novak | February 19, 2001

Rep. Chaka Fattah of Pennsylvania, a rare Democratic politician willing to defend Bill Clinton these days, seemed to be reaching on CNN's "Crossfire" last Tuesday night in explaining the pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich.

William F. Buckley | February 19, 2001

Well, catch Warren Buffett! He is worried that the estate tax might be eliminated. Mr. Buffett, who is reported to be the fourth-richest man in America, isn't going to wait for Congress to take his advice to maintain the tax. He will do it himself

George Will | February 18, 2001

Even when Alan Greenspan is mildly happy--as happy as a central banker gets--his demeanor resembles that of Woodrow Wilson when learning about the sinking of the Lusitania.

Charles Krauthammer | February 18, 2001

In spring of 1996, gasoline prices shot up, topping $2 per gallon in California. It being an election year, President Clinton boldly stepped in and ordered an investigation by the Energy and Justice Departments.
