Charles Krauthammer | March 18, 2001

But, oh, tamper with the memory of John F. Kennedy and the guardians of the flame will strike you down for sacrilege. The Sopranos aren't half as fast defending their own.

Robert Novak | March 18, 2001

Lawrence Lindsey, chief architect of the Bush tax plan, has privately--and literally--flashed a thumbs up to an expansion of the president's proposal to encourage investment.

George Will | March 18, 2001

With this week's beginning of Senate debate on campaign finance reform, we will reach the most pivotal moment in the history of American freedom since the civil rights revolution three and a half decades ago.

David Limbaugh | March 17, 2001

What does it say about our culture when a prestigious law school chooses a disbarred former president of the United States to be the recipient of its "International Advocate for Peace" award?

Debra J. Saunders | March 17, 2001

Most people first heard about Tate as the boy who said he killed the girl because he was playing pro wrestling. Then he was the 14-year-old sentenced to life in prison without parole because Florida law allowed him to be tried as an adult -- a sentence Gov. Jeb Bush may commute.

Ann Coulter | March 16, 2001

It seems President George Bush has imposed an innovative series of workplace rules at the White House. Staffers have been instructed to be on time, practice common courtesy and dress appropriately.

Brent Bozell | March 16, 2001

You can love him. You can hate him. It really doesn't matter. He's been in first place and in third place. Dan Rather has reigned two entire decades in the anchor chair of the "CBS Evening News."

Jonah Goldberg | March 16, 2001

Whether or not the movie "Traffic" wins the Oscar for best picture, it still qualifies as the movie of the year, at least in Washington.

Oliver North | March 16, 2001

A series of highly publicized military mishaps in the first 50 days of the new administration are raising concerns in some quarters of Capitol Hill that conditions in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines may be much worse than anyone imagined.

John McCaslin | March 16, 2001

Apparently it's not the deed but the doer that matters. Or perhaps, says Public Service Research President David Denholm, the outrage by "the pooh-bahs of organized labor . . . at having lost the presidential election has clouded their memory."

Cal Thomas | March 15, 2001

President Bush's proposal to reduce taxes has been criticized as unfair by liberal Democrats who think the bulk of the tax breaks will go to the rich.

Suzanne Fields | March 15, 2001

Our superstars are getting younger. Matt Martin is not yet 10 and he has already been on the front page of the New York Times, which described him as "the most bankable non-Hollywood 9-year old in the country."

Maggie Gallagher | March 15, 2001

This week the Senate is set to approve sweeping changes in federal bankruptcy law. Personal bankruptcies have climbed 75 percent since 1990. Last year, at the end of the Great Boom, 1.3 million Americans declared bankruptcy, according to The New York Times.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 15, 2001

The brazen misbehavior of the Clintons during their last days in the White House should remind us of why we punish misbehavior in the first place.

George Will | March 15, 2001

Richard Atkinson, president of the University of California, wants his university to drop the SAT, partly to improve the student body's racial and ethnic diversity.

Ross Mackenzie | March 15, 2001

Lately, California has been in the news for rolling blackouts, its largest utilities at bankruptcy's brink, just about everybody scratching his unbelieving head about what happened - and enviros objecting loudly to practically every suggested remedy.

Armstrong Williams | March 15, 2001

During recent visits to South Carolina much of the news had been dominated by the failing health and near death of Sen. Strom Thurmond. From reading the reports, you would have thought that the man was confined to a wheelchair, barely able to function, incapable of uttering a single sentence.

Walter E. Williams | March 14, 2001

It's generally agreed that American primary, secondary and, increasingly, undergraduate education is a failure. But that assessment depends upon just what evaluation criteria is chosen.

Brent Bozell | March 14, 2001

The great ongoing American political struggle has been, and probably always will be, between supporters of expansive federal power and those who believe that when government action is necessary, it should, with rare exceptions, be limited and localized.

Jonah Goldberg | March 14, 2001

While I'm usually permitted the illusion of authority when it comes to the remote control, this false consciousness is often shattered whenever my insatiable desire for certain TV fare meets the immovable will of my fiancee.

David Limbaugh | March 14, 2001

Please forgive me for my amusement at the Democrats' recent predicament over campaign finance reform. It is a delectable development. Let me explain:

Debra J. Saunders | March 14, 2001

It Arrived in the mail last month -- a credit-card solicitation that offered me a credit line "of up to $250,000." The letter continued, "In our experience, that is often as much credit as most people need.

Phyllis Schlafly | March 14, 2001

Who could have predicted that a real spy named Robert Hanssen and a traitor named Marc Rich would be dominating big-media headlines in 2001?

Bill Murchison | March 14, 2001

Americans, if they like, can spend the next decade sorting out the implications of the 2000 census. But which time, with the 2010 figures, they'll have entirely new, and sort-worthy, implications to confront;

Kathleen Parker | March 14, 2001

It's hard not notice that Americans are all over Cuba and, parenthetically, that the Helms-Burton Act and the U.S. embargo are ineffectual.

Armstrong Williams | March 14, 2001

Love and marriage sanctioned by God is the oldest and most fundamental building block of our society. Not only were these institutions etched in stone, they were thought necessary for the maintenance of most capitalistic societies.

William F. Buckley | March 14, 2001

The basic question is, or ought to be, If you borrow money, should you pay it back? The answer seems self-evident, but then of course flat propositions of that kind get complicated when you begin to conjugate them.

John McCaslin | March 14, 2001

The Democratic National Committee, under the guidance of Clinton pal and money man Terry McAuliffe, has written an intriguing history of the donkey and elephant, the accepted symbols of the Democratic and Republican parties.

Bruce Bartlett | March 14, 2001

One of the benefits of George W. Bush's effort to cut tax rates is that it is stimulating a useful debate on whether the tax system should be used to redistribute income.

Jack Kemp | March 14, 2001

President Bush's approach to tax cutting not too big, not too small puts his rising political capital on the line fending off both Democrats who would whittle it down and Republicans who would expand it.

Michelle Malkin | March 13, 2001

Have pigs grown wings? Is it snowing in Hades? Ralph Nader actually said nice things about President Bush this week. The devil's tail must be blue with frostbite.

Brent Bozell | March 13, 2001

After its first-week ratings bonanza, the new football league's television audience has largely evaporated. The last hour of the March 3 NBC telecast, that network's most recent at this writing, may have been, in the words of the Washington Post's Paul Farhi, "the lowest-rated primetime hour ever on one of the Big Three networks."

Larry Elder | March 13, 2001

On Jan. 22, 1993, Peter Jennings of ABC News reported on Bill Clinton's first initiative as president: "President Clinton keeps his word on abortion rights."

Mona Charen | March 13, 2001

Each new episode resembles, in some way, the previous one. A suburban school, a disturbed kid or sometimes two, gunshots and a stricken community. This time it's the San Diego suburbs. The list is getting quite long.

Cal Thomas | March 13, 2001

The Bush administration has wisely decided to withhold submitting its bill to aid faith-based programs until it can revise the legislation to make it more acceptable to conservative religious leaders.

Oliver North | March 13, 2001

Their draft-dodging, intern-hounding, impeached commander in chief was appearing with Janet Langhart Cohen, the media-maven wife of the then secretary of defense, on a show called "Special Assignment."

Debra J. Saunders | March 13, 2001

Now you know what the UC in UC Berkeley stands for: University of Censorship.

Linda Chavez | March 13, 2001

The Scholastic Aptitude Test, taken by millions of high school seniors each year and required for admission to 90 percent of four-year colleges, may be headed for the endangered species list.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 13, 2001

The mighty are falling one by one. Or at least the mighty are being exposed for the frauds that they are. Last month it was the Boy Ex-President. This month it is the Rev. Jackson. Who will be next?

Jacob Sullum | March 13, 2001

With Hillary Clinton's husband and brothers doing their best to distract attention from her performance in Washington, most people probably didn't notice that she recently introduced her first package of legislation.

Frank Gaffney | March 13, 2001

With less than sixty days in office, it may seem premature to declare that President George W. Bush has established an approach to foreign policy that friends around the world, potential adversaries and historians will perceive as a "Bush Doctrine."

Marvin Olasky | March 13, 2001

"Beware the Ides of March!" said the soothsayer, and on a March 15 over 2,000 years ago Roman senators assassinated a leader purportedly fated to die then. Shakespeare tells the story magnificently in his play "Julius Caesar."

Bruce Bartlett | March 13, 2001

It appears that George W. Bush's biggest challenge in getting his tax cut passed is not the knee-jerk opposition of Democrats, but "Nervous Nellies" on the Republican side obsessed with the budget surplus.

Suzanne Fields | March 12, 2001

The woman looked up from behind the cash register of the Super(market) Monte Carlo and burst into tears when two Americans asked her about the earthquake in her town.

John Leo | March 12, 2001

Anyone who still believes that free speech counts for something on our campuses should take a look at the University of California, Berkeley.

William F. Buckley | March 12, 2001

On almost the same day, (1) Iowa declared English to be the state's official language; (2) Drake University, Iowa's largest private college, announced that it would cease offering modern languages in its curriculum; and (3) the Census Bureau announced that the proportion of Hispanic Americans had grown to 12.5 percent of the population, 35 million people.

Kathleen Parker | March 12, 2001

"Another school shooting," said the airport lot attendant as he wearily punched my ticket. "Same ol', same ol'." Thus I learned about the recent school shooting in Santee, Calif., which, wearily-wearily, isn't even the latest.

George Will | March 11, 2001

The coming debate on campaign finance ``reforms'' that would vastly expand government regulation of political communication will measure just how much jeopardy the First Amendment, and hence political freedom, faces.

Charles Krauthammer | March 11, 2001

Americans like trials. It's the civil, fair, just way to settle disputes. But we like them too much. A general critique of Americans is that we bring everything to court. Our more serious problem, however, is that our addiction to trials infects and distorts our foreign policy.
