Thomas Sowell | August 17, 2001

The U.S. Department of Education and the National Institutes of Health have launched a campaign to get a government program created to "identify" children with autism at age two and then subject them to "intensive" early intervention for 25 hours a week or more.

Michelle Malkin | August 17, 2001

My daughter's still in diapers, but I'm taking her "back-to-school" shopping this week. Here in Maryland, politicians have established a tax-free, retail holiday to pander to the soccer-mom crowd.

Brent Bozell | August 17, 2001

The second historic transition of 2001 is coming soon. First, adult supervision was returned to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Larry Elder | August 17, 2001

President George W. Bush just approved funding for limited embryonic stem-cell research. And he recently praised the 11-year-old Americans with Disabilities Act. Bad calls.

Mona Charen | August 17, 2001

In Palestinian and Egyptian circles, a debate has been waged for the last 10 months or so concerning the morality of suicide bombings.

Emmett Tyrrell | August 17, 2001

It is very difficult to speak ill of those who supposedly do nothing but good.

Ross Mackenzie | August 17, 2001

Sometimes quotations in the original say things better and more instructively than rewrites. Herewith, a sampler of comments recently in the news....

Bruce Bartlett | August 17, 2001

The FOMC meets amid growing criticism that it has been too slow to ease monetary policy, thus causing the economy to slow and unemployment to rise unnecessarily.

Larry Kudlow | August 17, 2001

Alan Greenspan can't hope to run the economy if he persists in looking the wrong way.

George Will | August 17, 2001

Among reasonable people, who are now impervious to the diplomats' anesthetizing imbecilities about ``preserving'' the Middle East ``peace process,'' there is a crystallizing consensus: Israel needs a short war and a high wall.

Michelle Malkin | August 16, 2001

The "Disadvantaged Business Enterprise" program, run by the U.S. Department of Transportation and adopted by states and cities across the country, is one of the most atrociously corrupt government endeavors in existence.

Brent Bozell | August 16, 2001

In most struggles over the unborn, the pro-life cause begins with a profound disadvantage.

Cal Thomas | August 16, 2001

America may be the world's lone superpower, but the British are way ahead of us when it comes to scandal.

Suzanne Fields | August 16, 2001

The president's speech on stem cell research was striking for its reasonableness, its lack of rhetorical flourishes, its appeal to a thoughtful audience.

John McCaslin | August 16, 2001

Mauro Mujica, chairman of the board and CEO of U.S. English Inc., says the United States is threatened to be "torn apart" by Uncle Sam's ever-increasing official policies of multilingualism.

Armstrong Williams | August 16, 2001

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away - say 1950 - children were an integral part of a family's economic well-being.

Robert Novak | August 16, 2001

I recently watched 14 men and two women here, perspiring through their uniforms because they wore bulletproof vests, disarm each other one-on-one.

Ross Mackenzie | August 16, 2001

For everything there is a season. Around our shop, it is the season for repairing all the stuff that seems to bust all at once.

Charles Krauthammer | August 16, 2001

This cannot go on. No country can sustain what Israel is sustaining: one massacre of Columbine proportions after another.

Walter E. Williams | August 15, 2001

No one invented language -- it simply spontaneously evolved as a system that enables us to communicate with one another.

Jonah Goldberg | August 15, 2001

A new book, by an even more obscure Danish academic who tried to debunk Simon, has brought him back to life and is promising to make Simon's enemies all hot and bothered once again.

David Limbaugh | August 15, 2001

A "friendly" e-mailer challenged me, "Are you going to have the guts to now write an article bashing Bush on his decision to partially fund stem cell research? If you’re going to hold true to your principles, you will."

Phyllis Schlafly | August 15, 2001

When demonstrators displayed anti-American signs against our president while traveling to Europe last month, we could brush it off as a bunch of street radicals getting their kicks.

Maggie Gallagher | August 15, 2001

George W. Bush's Solomonlike decision on stem cells has bought some time, a brief period of reflection before the commercial pressures to turn some human beings into spare parts for other, bigger, stronger, more developed human beings becomes irresistible.

Bill Murchison | August 15, 2001

So we're all frothing along, wondering where Chandra Levy might be, and whether Gary Condit should resign, when up pops the question of stem-cell research.

Robert Novak | August 15, 2001

When anguished conservatives talked to Karl Rove in the hours before George W. Bush's decision on stem cell research was revealed Thursday night, the president's political adviser told them to wait and listen to Bush's thoughtful approach.

Kathleen Parker | August 15, 2001

I've always thought the story of Adam and Eve was a tad hyperbolic, even for a metaphor.

Jack Kemp | August 15, 2001

"HELP WANTED": Fed Chairman who understands stable money.

Michelle Malkin | August 14, 2001

Nothing breeds sophomoric resentment like academic success. So it's no surprise that home schoolers and their children are the target of a spiteful T-shirt sold in retail stores and online.

Brent Bozell | August 14, 2001

A few weeks ago, the Cable News Network (CNN) named a new chairman. The choice was Time's Walter Isaacson, a print man sure to be welcomed by high-fiber, less-tabloid-flab TV news idealists.

Cal Thomas | August 14, 2001

Like an American labor dispute in which the Taft-Hartley Act has been invoked, Northern Ireland has begun a six-week "cooling off" period following the suspension and then reinstatement by the British government of its Catholic-Protestant "unity" assembly.

These days, rumors that Alan Greenspan is putting the final touches on his letter of resignation are about a dime a dozen.

Robert Novak | August 14, 2001

Even before Sen. Thomas Daschle delivered Thursday's broadside against George W. Bush's foreign policy, the president had personally soured on the Senate majority leader.

John Leo | August 14, 2001

More news from the annals of zero tolerance and the continuing campaign to make the culture ever more deranged:

George Will | August 14, 2001

Bush said cells will be used only ``where the life-and-death decision has already been made.'' This has been widely mischaracterized as a ``middle course.'' Midway between what and what? Actually, it is strict fidelity to his campaign promise that there would be no federal funding for research ``that involves destroying living human embryos.''

Marvin Olasky | August 14, 2001

At many schools, the classic competitions are dead. Dodge ball is out. Despite the high profile of the National Spelling Bee, classroom spelling bees are much less frequent. At some elementary school basketball games, no one keeps score.

Cal Thomas | August 13, 2001

On the surface, President Bush's decision to allow for limited federal funding of research on 60 genetically diverse stem cell lines that "already exist " and have "already been destroyed" seems reasonable.

Suzanne Fields | August 13, 2001

One of the cruelest unintended consequences of contemporary feminism comes to those who delay having children. You have only to speak to a woman trying to get pregnant to understand the pain.

Kathleen Parker | August 13, 2001

I'm disinclined to empathize with full-grown adults who act badly on account of a lousy childhood, a fashionable syndrome or whatever other excuse du jour comes handy.

William F. Buckley | August 12, 2001

It seems everyone is concerned about President Bush and vacations. Some commentary is simply informational, idiomatic questions put and answers given, showing nothing more than workaday curiosity.

George Will | August 12, 2001

--``We're not in the entertainment business,'' said the Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, co-chairman of the Knight Foundation's Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, ``nor are we a minor league for professional sports.''
