George Will | March 25, 2001

Because misery loves company, (BEG ITAL)Schadenfreude(END ITAL) is fun, and nervous Americans need some economic perspective, consider the world's second largest economy, Japan's. America's stock markets--which are not the same thing as America's economy--have entered a second troubled year.

Charles Krauthammer | March 25, 2001

Pharmaceutical companies live on patent protection. They make their profits in the few years they enjoy a monopoly on the drugs they have discovered. They fight fiercely to protect their turf, and give generously to politicians to make sure they protect that turf too.

Thomas Sowell | March 24, 2001

Price controls almost invariably lead to consumers demanding more and suppliers supplying less. It is a guaranteed formula for creating a shortage.

David Limbaugh | March 24, 2001

Not long ago, President Clinton, frantically seeking some foreign policy legacy -- anything that might earn him an award for his peace efforts -- was presumptuously intermeddling as a peace broker in the Middle East.

Robert Novak | March 24, 2001

Florida Republican leaders, still smarting from aggressive assaults by two Democratic congressmen during the state's presidential vote recount, Reps. Robert Wexler and Peter Deutsch, are preparing to eliminate one of them.

William F. Buckley | March 24, 2001

Thomas Sowell | March 23, 2001

The last time so many people were as bedeviled as the people of California are today by electrical blackouts was back in 1979, when motorists in cities across the country were lined up for hours at filling stations, waiting to get gas.

Michelle Malkin | March 23, 2001

A young Harvard undergrad enraged the campus emperors of political correctness this week when he tried to tickle their funny bones.

Brent Bozell | March 23, 2001

As Bill Clinton's richly deserved place in Bartlett's is being prepared in all its didn't-inhale, is-is and didn't-do-that-woman-Miss-Lewinsky glory, perhaps the quote-keepers ought to be considering a page or two for another major American public figure.

Jonah Goldberg | March 23, 2001

For the last two months we've been treated to a steady stream of awards shows, Golden Globes, People's Choice, the Foreign Critics Who Hate America but Love to Live Here Honors, etc.

Mona Charen | March 23, 2001

Maybe they got tired of being so often portrayed as tightly wound spinsters. But whatever the reason, the American Library Association is certainly playing against type.

Cal Thomas | March 23, 2001

Secretary of State Colin Powell seemed to indicate a shift in emphasis in U.S. policy toward the Middle East when he addressed the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in Washington, D.C., Monday (March 19).

Debra J. Saunders | March 23, 2001

Democrats see the Fox visit as proof of the fact that Davis and they enjoy superior relations with Mexico than former Gov. Pete Wilson enjoyed.

John McCaslin | March 23, 2001

Good grief. Just when President Clinton was bragging in his 11th hour that the economy has never been in better shape, his successor has to bring us down to reality.

Ross Mackenzie | March 23, 2001

We have come to the two-month marker on this presidential run. Time to stop and get some water and check the heart rate....

Ann Coulter | March 22, 2001

In a little-known section of the campaign finance laws, oil companies are completely exempted from spending restrictions. They alone can donate as much money as they see fit, directly to candidates, in thinly disguised "issue advertising," or coordinated expenditures.

Thomas Sowell | March 22, 2001

Despite media proclamations of "the public's right to know" and frequent invocations of the First Amendment, there has been a deafening silence from the national media over the storm trooper tactics used on college campuses against student newspapers.

Larry Elder | March 22, 2001

Reparations for slavery? To David Horowitz, the president of the Center for the Study of Popular Culture, the movement represents the Super Bowl of all shakedowns. He took action.

Oliver North | March 22, 2001

Week nine of the Bush presidency was a doozy. The economy continued to contract like a black hole in outer space. The equities markets rebuffed master micro-manager Alan Greenspan's third interest rate cut since January.

Suzanne Fields | March 22, 2001

The psychiatrist leaves her office a little later than usual, but not late enough to call for a guard. She walks down an isolated stairwell, talking into the cell phone glued to her ear.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 22, 2001

Sen. Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut, speaking in the Senate the other day, intoned that there is "too much money in politics."

Maggie Gallagher | March 22, 2001

Colleges claim to be tolerant places dedicated to intellectual freedom. Political correctness, administrators say, is a figment of overheated conservative imaginations. So, thought David Horowitz, why not conduct a little test?

Armstrong Williams | March 22, 2001

In response to claims that police officers use race as a motivating factor in determining which motorists to pull over, President Bush recently instructed the federal government to begin compiling racial statistics on routine traffic stops across the country.

Robert Novak | March 22, 2001

The long-pending bankruptcy reform bill has passed both houses of Congress by overwhelming margins. Nevertheless, its final version will not reach President Bush's desk before May -- at the very earliest.

Ross Mackenzie | March 22, 2001

Friday marked the 250th anniversary of James Madison's birth. What a guy.... The Constitutional Convention opened in Philadelphia on May 25, 1787 - and Madison would become the key player.

Michelle Malkin | March 21, 2001

Get ready for the red-carpet parade of egos. It's Oscar time again. Millions will tune in this weekend to gawk and swoon as the world's most famous actors and actresses celebrate their favorite subject -- themselves.

Walter E. Williams | March 21, 2001

Last year, President Clinton signed legislation that orders states to change their statutes so that .08 is the blood/alcohol concentration (BAC) for arrest for drunk-driving. The BAC edict came as a part of the new Federal Transportation Appropriations Bill.

Brent Bozell | March 21, 2001

On March 5, 15-year-old Charles Andrew Williams opened fire on classmates at his Santee, Calif. high school, killing two and wounding 13.

Jonah Goldberg | March 21, 2001

One of the biggest political clichés, popularized by Ronald Reagan no less, is the old joke about how an optimist is someone who, when he finds a pile of manure under the Christmas tree, exclaims, "I'm getting a pony!"

David Limbaugh | March 21, 2001

Politics can be very frustrating sometimes. Everyone understands that we need substantial tax cuts as part of the policy mix to boost the ailing economy. Unfortunately, Congressional Democrats are too busy playing politics to join President Bush in passing remedial legislation.

Debra J. Saunders | March 21, 2001

Peter Singer, whose opposition to "speciesism'' made him the father of the modern animal-rights movement, is once again in the thick of controversy.

Phyllis Schlafly | March 21, 2001

Congressional Republicans have signaled that they are willing to compromise the death tax provision of President George W. Bush's tax-cut proposal. This offers a splendid opportunity to get it right.

Frank Gaffney | March 21, 2001

While the Bush Administration's pending decisions about missile defense and the size and costs of its effort to rebuild the U.S. military have been the focus of considerable attention and debate, a no-less-epochal review is underway -- one that has, to date, received little public consideration.

William F. Buckley | March 21, 2001

It isn't exactly correct that conservatives oppose any limitations on political spending on the grounds that such limitations are unconstitutional slights of the First Amendment.

Armstrong Williams | March 21, 2001

The 2000 census caused a few brows to wrinkle recently when it reported that the Hispanic population has surpassed the African-American population as this country's largest minority group.

Bruce Bartlett | March 21, 2001

There is no question that the falling stock market is both an indicator of a weakening economy and a cause of it. Although the principal cause is an excessively tight monetary policy, there are also many laws, regulations and other government policies helping to push the market down.

Kathleen Parker | March 21, 2001

I knew this day was coming. I've dreaded it ever since 4:17 a.m. on Sept. 3, 1984, when my newborn emitted that first lusty cry. As of Friday, my son - my heart - is a driver.

John McCaslin | March 21, 2001

President Bush's White House is departing from tradition and severely cutting back on the number of visitors allowed on public tours of the White House.

Jack Kemp | March 21, 2001

Sen. Tom Daschle and Congressman Richard Gephardt are placing partisanship above the national interest when they make the bizarre claim that President George W. Bush has talked the economy into a slowdown and perhaps a recession by telling the truth about its condition.

George Will | March 21, 2001

McCainism, the McCarthyism of today's ``progressives,'' involves, as McCarthyism did, the reckless hurling of imprecise accusations. Then the accusation was ``communism!'' Today it is ``corruption!'' Pandemic corruption of ``everybody'' by ``the system'' supposedly justifies campaign finance reforms.

Tue, Mar 20, 2001

Cal Thomas | March 20, 2001

Chicken Little Democrats are clucking that the financial sky is falling and it's all President Bush's fault.

Linda Chavez | March 20, 2001

They don't call it March Madness for nothing. Not being a basketball fan, however, I've never personally participated in this rite of spring, that is until I decided to bring my youngest son cross-country with me on a business trip so that we could share some quality time together.

Jacob Sullum | March 20, 2001

The other day I flew from Indianapolis to New York City. The plane left when it was supposed to leave, and it arrived when it was supposed to arrive.

Bill Murchison | March 20, 2001

While the stock market reels and rocks, the U. S. Senate debates ... campaign finance?

Marvin Olasky | March 20, 2001

President Bush's advisers were gritting their teeth last week about anti-evangelical statements made by John DiIulio, head of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.

Michelle Malkin | March 19, 2001

"Jesse slowly suffocated and died." A jury heard those chilling words this week in the opening statement of a little-noticed Arkansas trial.

Mona Charen | March 19, 2001

For the first time since he began compiling the "Index of Leading Cultural Indicators," William Bennett arguably has had more good news to report than bad. But the bad is precisely in the area that can undermine nearly all of the good. So hold the champagne, at least for now.

Suzanne Fields | March 19, 2001

Clothes don't make the man, but they sure tell you something about him. That goes for hats, too.

John Leo | March 19, 2001

Here in New York, Cardinal Edward Egan had a little chat with Gov. George Pataki about whether Catholic institutions should be forced to provide contraceptive services and the "morning after" pill for their female employees.

Bruce Bartlett | March 19, 2001

In recent days, backers of George W. Bush's proposed tax rate reduction have been running advertisements featuring John F. Kennedy supporting his 1963 tax cut.

Kathleen Parker | March 19, 2001

In the wake of the latest round of school shootings, the newest cycle of intolerable intolerance has begun. This time, the victim of irrational reaction is a nine-year-old boy in Bunnell, Fla., who drew the wrong thing at the wrong time.

William F. Buckley | March 19, 2001

The drug czar-elect in the movie "Traffic" has decided to look at the grit of drug trade and drug addiction firsthand, to which end he forages about Tijuana and has a near overdose.

Sun, Mar 18, 2001

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.

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.

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.
