President Bush probably wouldn't appreciate a historical comparison to Warren Harding, but "Back to Normalcy" is definitely an underappreciated theme and consequence of his election.

Debra J. Saunders | July 15, 2001

Imagine if one day the government cut off your water. You have no notice. You have no ready way to replace free-flowing H20. Your tap is dry.

Jonah Goldberg | July 14, 2001

Saturday is Bastille Day. This commemorates that wonderful spontaneous moment when the French peasants declared as one that they had rights.

Maggie Gallagher | July 14, 2001

Now that Madonna is boringly, happily married and middle-aged, guess who is emerging as the new darling, the pet subject, of the academic elite?

Kathleen Parker | July 14, 2001

"Pay up or zip up" is the message from the Wisconsin Supreme Court, which recently upheld an order that prohibits a "deadbeat" dad from having any more children while he's on probation.

John McCaslin | July 14, 2001

Step aside, Democrats. Move over, Republicans. Make way for the Greens.

Robert Novak | July 14, 2001

High-ranking Democrats privately consider winning Rep. Gary Condit's district in California's Central Valley next year to be hopeless unless the California Legislature can change its boundaries.

Thomas Sowell | July 13, 2001

The obvious continues to make headlines in California. "Federal price limits backfire" read the big front-page headline in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Michelle Malkin | July 13, 2001

Twenty years from now, when my baby daughter is on the brink of full adulthood, I will tell her about my experience as a 20-year-old intern in Washington, D.C.

Mona Charen | July 13, 2001

I'm a little confused. Didn't we all agree that "everyone lies about sex"? So Gary Condit did the right thing, didn't he, in denying a sexual relationship with Chandra Levy for nearly 10 weeks and keeping the police in the dark?

Cal Thomas | July 13, 2001

Entering the "green room" at the Fox News Channel (where I occasionally appear), there are former National Organization for Women President, Eleanor Smeal; radio talk show host, Ellen Rattner; and Alexis Herman, secretary of labor during the Clinton administration.

Oliver North | July 13, 2001

If the utopian do-gooders at the United Nations have their way, between now and July 20 the members of this august body will adopt a "non-binding Protocol"...

Debra J. Saunders | July 13, 2001

Why would a clothing store try to sell clothes by showing pictures of naked people?

Armstrong Williams | July 13, 2001

During a recent speech, NAACP Chairman Julian Bond compared some of President Bush's appointees to the Taliban...

Charles Krauthammer | July 13, 2001

In a 1996 referendum, California voters outlawed racial preferences. Or did they? At the University of California, a lovely backdoor has been found for beating the ban.

Bruce Bartlett | July 13, 2001

I remember hearing a speech back in 1980 by former Treasury Secretary John Connally, who was then running for president.

Ann Coulter | July 12, 2001

We won't be certain that Congressman Gary Condit is guilty until Alan Dershowitz defends him. But the possibility that Condit wasn't involved in the disappearance of intern Chandra Levy grows less remote with each passing day.

Thomas Sowell | July 12, 2001

There are few things more heartwarming than watching people rise out of poverty to a better life. When it is a whole nation in the process of doing so, it is especially inspiring.

Michelle Malkin | July 12, 2001

Mark Twain once observed that "We all do no end of feeling, and we mistake it for thinking."

Brent Bozell | July 12, 2001

There are a few entertainment industry stories that have been blown onto my desk by one summer breeze or another. Collectively, they speak volumes about the dysfunctional state of the popular culture.

Larry Elder | July 12, 2001

You own a busy restaurant. Agile waiters and waitresses carrying hot food and coffee deftly avoid colliding with each other as they scurry from table to table. Good hostesses, you find, don't grow on trees, and dang gummit, your experienced one just quit.

Debra J. Saunders | July 12, 2001

Where are all those people who have been hand-wringing over President Bush's proposal to give federal funds to faith-based charities when there is a real assault on the wall between church and state?

Emmett Tyrrell | July 12, 2001

From the soapbox of his regular Newsweek column, Jonathan Alter begins a recent essay with admirable panache. He writes, "David Brock is arguably the most loathed writer in Washington, which is saying something."

William F. Buckley | July 12, 2001

Get a load of this! An epic struggle looming on the uses and abuses of political rhetoric: major contenders Bret D. Schundler ("think of Schindler's List, then just change shi to shu ," he says affably to the voters who have trouble with his name) vs. James E. McGreevy, for governor of New Jersey.

Robert Novak | July 12, 2001

Three and half-years ago, I reported that a veteran FBI agent resigned and retired after refusing a demand by Attorney General Janet Reno to give the Justice Department the names of top secret sources in China.

Walter E. Williams | July 11, 2001

June 30 marked the 200th anniversary of the birth of Frederic Bastiat. If one were to list the top 10 advocates of liberty, French philosopher-economist Bastiat would rank high on that list.

David Limbaugh | July 11, 2001

If so-called pro-choice advocates are truly neutral about which "choice" women actually make, why do they seem so threatened by measures aimed at protecting the fetus in those cases where the woman chooses life?

Linda Chavez | July 11, 2001

For weeks, I've avoided the Chandra Levy story, reading almost nothing about the missing intern who disappeared in Washington, D.C., April 30, the day before she was to return home to receive her master's degree from the University of Southern California.

Bruce Bartlett | July 11, 2001

The whole notion of "profit" is fundamental to the capitalist system, because profits and the effort to achieve them are what drives work, investment and, ultimately, economic growth and well being.

Marvin Olasky | July 11, 2001

As the House of Representatives prepares to vote on a key part of President Bush's faith-based initiative, White House politicos and faith czar John DiIulio have reneged on a key pledge made to conservatives in April.

David Limbaugh | July 10, 2001

We are all acquainted with the adage "the squeaky wheel gets the grease." For the past decade or so, liberals have been squeaking loudly and getting more than their fair share of the grease, many times, even from Republicans.

Phyllis Schlafly | July 10, 2001

State politicians and federal judges are going to the limit to protect us all from the horrendous highway hazards of talking on cell phones and not wearing seat belts.

Bill Murchison | July 10, 2001

Alphonse Karr? Never heard of him? Why, everyone has heard of M. Karr, the 19th century French journalist, via his famous declaration, "Plus A change, plus c'est la m'me chose."

Jacob Sullum | July 10, 2001

I want to buy a bottle of Scotch, but the state of Virginia is making it difficult. In New York City, where my family lived until a few weeks ago, there were several nearby liquor stores whose proprietors would have been happy to help me.

Frank Gaffney | July 10, 2001

Saturday's New York Times reported that "President Bush has resolved to let the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) languish in the Senate, where its supporters concede they do not have the votes to revive it." If correct, this disclosure represents good news and bad news.

Jack Kemp | July 10, 2001

Even as the world faces the threat of a global economic downturn, government regulators here and abroad go about the business of destroying wealth, jobs and opportunity, and stifling business and technological innovation.

Jonah Goldberg | July 09, 2001

"Warning: Bears in the area." That's what the signs hanging around Deadhorse, Alaska, said. The grizzlies had been spotted making their way around the camp, presumably for picnic baskets.

David Limbaugh | July 09, 2001

Conservative Bret Schundler's upset primary victory over Bob Franks is awfully encouraging for the conservative cause.

Cal Thomas | July 09, 2001

President Bush will soon make one of those decisions that make his job difficult. The president is expected to announce federal rules for funding research on human embryos.

Suzanne Fields | July 09, 2001

Science and religion often duke it out. We the people take ringside seats to watch and determine the winners and losers.

John Leo | July 09, 2001

English is a living language, always changing under the pressure of euphemism and verbal politics. Here are some translations for the modern reader:<

Robert Novak | July 09, 2001

A show trial will be conducted Thursday by the Senate Budget Committee.

Kathleen Parker | July 09, 2001

When a person goes missing, it helps to have been associated with someone famous. Even better, a politician.

John McCaslin | July 09, 2001

After their unprecedented - and effortless - coup that handed them control of the Senate, Democrats are now gearing up to defend their strategic half of Capitol Hill.

David Limbaugh | July 08, 2001

The selective indignation of many of those clamoring about alleged minority voter disenfranchisement in Florida reveals that their primary concern is not to restore integrity to the election process, but to win political points and elections.

Debra J. Saunders | July 08, 2001

One woman, Chandra Levy, 24, has been missing for two months. Something very bad has happened to her.

Charles Krauthammer | July 08, 2001

The silliness has gone on long enough. It is time for a little clarity about Vice President Cheney's health.
