Last month, California state Sen. Don Perata, D-Oakland, told The San Francisco Chronicle he favored a study that would examine retrofitting the Bay Bridge instead of building a proposed eastern span.

Charles Krauthammer | April 08, 2001

David Horowitz, former bomb-thrower of the left and now bomb-thrower of the right, has created a tidy scandal over the question of reparations for African-Americans.

David Limbaugh | April 07, 2001

Don’t fall for this tripe from Democratic senators and milquetoast Republicans that they are opposing President Bush’s tax cut plan for reasons of fiscal restraint. Shame on all of them.

Kathleen Parker | April 07, 2001

Gender feminists may as well go ahead and admit they're communists. It'll make things so much easier if we understand our terms.

Robert Novak | April 07, 2001

George W. Bush, meeting this week with Republican congressional leaders, told them: "As president, I have responsibility for 270 million Americans. But for now, I pay special attention to two senators."

Brent Bozell | April 06, 2001

It's happened. The man who almost always described Kenneth Starr to his TV audience as a "Republican independent counsel" (hinting that the first adjective canceled out the second) is now an established "Democratic objective newsman."

Jonah Goldberg | April 06, 2001

How many people need to tell you that you've got bad breath before you take their word for it?

Mona Charen | April 06, 2001

Just you wait, they thundered in December. Some day, someone is going to (SET ITAL) count (END ITAL) all those uncounted ballots in Florida and then the TRUTH will come out.

Oliver North | April 06, 2001

We've tried diplomatic recognition, trade and calling them "strategic partners." We've sold them our most sensitive technology and let them steal what they couldn't buy. We've even offered to buy 24 million dollars worth of their black berets and make the entire U.S. Army wear them.

Debra J. Saunders | April 06, 2001

Only in America can a woman commit perjury to protect a violent criminal, then find herself as a feminist cause celebre.

Ross Mackenzie | April 06, 2001

The mind hungers for the president to give China five minutes to release the EP-3E Aries II's crew of 24 on Hainan Island.

Ann Coulter | April 05, 2001

Last week, my old law firm won a spectacular court victory against my law school prohibiting it from engaging in racial discrimination in admissions. Thank heaven I've graduated.

Thomas Sowell | April 05, 2001

It is not often that conservative talk-show host extraordinaire Rush Limbaugh and Harlem's left-wing Congressman Charles Rangel are in agreement on anything.

Larry Elder | April 05, 2001

An "energy crisis" in California? Say it ain't so. In 1996, California legislators deregulated the wholesale price of electricity. At the time, however, the legislature also agreed to fix retail prices -- the price consumers pay -- for a period of five years.

Cal Thomas | April 05, 2001

Remember when censorship was about banning a book or an idea? Today, the First Amendment covers even Larry Flynt's uncovered magazine.

Maggie Gallagher | April 05, 2001

In Oklahoma, one of those manufactured mini-scandals so dear to the overheated press has erupted over Gov. Frank Keating's new marriage initiative.

Emmett Tyrrell | April 05, 2001

The American elites of progressive disposition are unfortunately not very creative. They think in stereotypes. Moreover, they are not very learned.

Robert Novak | April 05, 2001

WASHINGTON -- John Ashcroft, a lion of the right as a U.S. senator, has sounded more like a lamb of the center as attorney general.

William F. Buckley | April 05, 2001

I swore I'd shoot myself if I didn't write about it, "it" being "The Sopranos" Episode VI seen on Sunday, an exercise in voluptuous self-abasement.

Michelle Malkin | April 04, 2001

What is it with some Republican leaders and baseball? When it comes to America's national pastime, the party of lower taxes and less government leaves its principles in the dust.

Walter E. Williams | April 04, 2001

David Bell, Harvard law professor, counseled, "Black people will never gain full equality in this country." The late columnist Carl Rowan said, "Racism remains a terrible curse on this society, and ... nothing in sight suggests that that curse will end soon."

Jonah Goldberg | April 04, 2001

In 1990 the Louisiana Legislature passed a bill that lowered the penalty for beating up a flag-burner to a $25 misdemeanor. Some patriotic Cajuns actually wanted to prepay the fine so they could have a de facto "Open a Can of Whup-ass on a Long-haired Pinko Permit."

David Limbaugh | April 04, 2001

The entire premise of the current crusade to "reform" campaign finance laws is flawed in several important respects. There are also plenty of other problems with the proposed cure, McCain-Feingold, beyond its flagrant unconstitutionality.

Debra J. Saunders | April 04, 2001

It is easy to figure why President George W. Bush can be so gracious about being the brunt of jokes for his syntax-challenged speech.

Phyllis Schlafly | April 04, 2001

Despite the Republicans enjoying a majority in all three branches of the federal government, the liberals seem to have a lock on debates about public policy, because they are more skillful (or dishonest) in the use of words.

Kathleen Parker | April 04, 2001

Certain statistics grab you by the throat and leave you breathless, such as this one released Monday: One in five high school boys brought a weapon to school last year.

Marvin Olasky | April 04, 2001

As the baseball season begins, we can look forward to "You Make the Call" segments during slow moments of televised games. For example, viewers shown a bunt that comes to rest exactly on the foul line will then be asked: Is the ball fair or foul?

Bruce Bartlett | April 04, 2001

It now appears increasingly likely that some sort of tax rebate will be enacted this year to cushion the impact of a slowing economy. The problem is that rebates don't work and never have.

Armstrong Williams | April 04, 2001

The U.S. Supreme Court ignited furious debate in op-ed sections across the country last week when they agreed to revisit a 1995 affirmative action case.

John McCaslin | April 04, 2001

Most, if not all, senators on Capitol Hill are offended, quite frankly, at the suggestion that minus campaign finance reform they are not to be trusted.

Jack Kemp | April 04, 2001

The Internet is changing civilization as we know it, for the better in my opinion. However, like any revolutionary new technology, there are potential dangers associated with the Internet that cannot be ignored.

Mona Charen | April 03, 2001

Everyone knows that authorities ought not make decisions about individuals based solely on race. This judgment forms the foundation of our resistance to racial profiling by police.

Cal Thomas | April 03, 2001

The arrest in France of James C. Kopp on charges of the 1998 murder of Buffalo, N.Y. abortionist Dr. Barnett Slepian has given media champions of the procedure an opportunity to again slander pro-lifers.

Linda Chavez | April 03, 2001

Affirmative action is on the ropes once again, and deservedly so. Despite protests to the contrary, universities routinely admit less qualified black and Hispanic students over better qualified whites and Asians -- all in the name of diversity.

Jacob Sullum | April 03, 2001

The federal government argues that allowing sick people to obtain marijuana for medicinal use will make the drug laws impossible to enforce.

Frank Gaffney | April 03, 2001

A few weeks ago, this column focused a spotlight on the proposed sale of a critical part of the U.S. defense industrial base to a foreign firm -- and the larger trend, involving the selling-off of America's national security technology seedcorn

Bill Murchison | April 03, 2001

Maybe the Red Chinese -- as we used to call them, back in the supposedly benighted "McCarthy era" -- do us a backhanded favor by hassling us over that downed EP-3 surveillance plane.

Mon, Apr 02, 2001

Brent Bozell | April 02, 2001

You could call it a forgotten ending to a forgotten story. On March 22, a jury in Bentonville, Ark., convicted 23-year-old Joshua Brown of first-degree murder in the death of 13-year-old Jesse Dirkhising.

Suzanne Fields | April 02, 2001

Women are becoming lawyers in increasing numbers. Whether this is a triumph for the "second sex" or a failure of feminism may depend on what you think of lawyers.

Bruce Bartlett | April 02, 2001

I have been amused for the last several months by the efforts of my friend Gene Sperling, late of the Clinton White House, to somehow blame the current economic slowdown on George W. Bush.

Kathleen Parker | April 02, 2001

A new computer-generated face of Jesus - based on probable Jewish features, skin color and hair 2000 years ago - has ruined a million stained-glass windows around the globe and left Christians of all races to worship someone they've never seen before.

Robert Novak | April 02, 2001

Sen. John McCain, whose powerful personality is willing his campaign finance reform to passage, sets a loftier goal than the bipartisan majority supporting his bill. But McCain and his followers are equally sure to be disappointed.

John Leo | April 02, 2001

After a speech I gave to a conservative group in New York, a man rose to ask a question: Didn't I think that all the alarm about global warming was just another example of the politically correct agenda of the left?

Sun, Apr 01, 2001

Debra J. Saunders | April 01, 2001

Richard Lagerstrom, 75, of Mountain View, Calif., is one senior who isn't salivating at the prospect of a universal taxpayer-subsidized prescription drug benefit.

George Will | April 01, 2001

Beginning with spring training in Arizona and Florida, Major League Baseball, taking pity on traumatized pitchers, is directing umpires to enforce the strike zone as defined in the rulebook.

William F. Buckley | April 01, 2001

A protest movement is fomenting at Yale University, protesting the selection of Sen. Hillary Clinton as commencement speaker. The idea of the band of conservative students is not to disrupt the commencement proceedings, but to boycott at least that part of it in which she will figure.
