David Limbaugh | March 16, 2002

Whether or not you subscribe to Pat Buchanan’s view that the West is dying, how can you deny that our society is becoming increasingly fragmented and balkanized? Why, then, does our government so often discourage, rather than encourage, immigrants from assimilating into our culture?

Rich Tucker | March 16, 2002

It’s time for a change here in the nation’s capital. A name change.

Thomas Sowell | March 15, 2002

The only good thing about the Andrea Yates case is that the jury was obviously not influenced by the months of propaganda for her by radical feminists

Brent Bozell | March 15, 2002

The New Republic has done something odd for a liberal magazine. They've put "The Trouble With Bias" on the cover. But it's a reference to Bernard Goldberg's best-selling CBS-insider book entitled "Bias."

Mona Charen | March 15, 2002

If you visit the website of the Center for Military Readiness (, you will encounter the lovely, smiling face of the delicate Elaine Donnelly.

Oliver North | March 15, 2002

Debra J. Saunders | March 15, 2002

A funny thing happened to Gov. Gray Davis' effort to paint GOP rival Bill Simon as an extremist nut bag.

Jacob Sullum | March 15, 2002

Bruce Bartlett | March 15, 2002

On March 18, the United Nations convenes a major conference in Monterrey, Mexico, on the need to sharply increase foreign aid. President Bush will be heavily pressured to go along when he addresses the conference on Friday.

Larry Kudlow | March 15, 2002

Ann Coulter | March 14, 2002

On a week when Janet Reno -- architect of Waco and the Elian Gonzalez raid -- complains about the war on terrorism

Thomas Sowell | March 14, 2002

Did anyone ever call Franklin D. Roosevelt a "Dutch American" or Dwight Eisenhower a "German American"? It would have been resented, not only by them and their supporters, but by Americans in general.

Brent Bozell | March 14, 2002

Is it noteworthy that this past Sunday evening, the sports network ESPN featured all manner of swear words, including the "F" word, on its showcase prime-time offering?

Jonah Goldberg | March 14, 2002

Remember the wailing and caterwauling over Enron? Remember how Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, with his merry band of carpers in tow, tried to make it a transitive verb?

Cal Thomas | March 14, 2002

It was the best of television and the worst of television.

Suzanne Fields | March 14, 2002

How do you estimate the worth of a life? What is the value of a husband? Of a mother? son? daughter?

Bill Murchison | March 14, 2002

Word reaches us this week of the demise of Charlton Heston. Or, rather, of the feverish delusions that launched his cinematic career.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 14, 2002

What does it tell you about Hollywood that already before the courts have decided Enron's fate and before congressional inquiries have made any headway in identifying the culprits, Hollywood's resident producers and directors know the plot line?

Robert Novak | March 14, 2002

At the beginning of last week, Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle backtracked from his politically vulnerable position of seeming to criticize President Bush's war leadership.

One of the first things Georgia's junior senator, Zell Miller, noticed when he came to Washington last year was that you hardly ever see a pickup truck in the city.

Ross Mackenzie | March 14, 2002

Will it rain or shine? Who will win? How long will it take? What will the future bring?

Thomas Sowell | March 13, 2002

Can you think of any reason why the past or present sufferings of blacks would justify letting a white student get admitted to an elite public high school in San Francisco over a Chinese American student with higher qualifications?

Walter E. Williams | March 13, 2002

How many times have we heard people being applauded for "giving back"?

David Limbaugh | March 13, 2002

Washington Democrats are fond of justifying their otherwise inexcusable behavior on the grounds that "Republicans did it first." It is time we recognize this tactic for what it is.

Pat Buchanan | March 13, 2002

Stepping back from the abyss of the Cuban missile crisis of 1962, Americans and Russians took away separate lessons.

Debra J. Saunders | March 13, 2002

Linda Chavez | March 13, 2002

Campaign finance reform, which appeared dead until the Enron scandal revived sanctimonious blather about the supposedly dangerous nexus between money and politics, has staged a comeback.

Phyllis Schlafly | March 13, 2002

The media are having a field day criticizing the lobbyists for Enron Corp., but they are overlooking the most effective special-interest lobbyists ever to function in Washington.

Maggie Gallagher | March 13, 2002

This is not so much a column as a cri d'coeur. A good Catholic is supposed to trust the church 's authority.

Kathleen Parker | March 13, 2002

This isn't precisely a six-months-after column, though my reflections are inspired by the CBS "9/11" documentary that 39 million Americans watched Sunday night.

William F. Buckley | March 13, 2002

Bishop Anthony O'Connell of Palm Beach, Fla., said, at the outset of his meeting with the press, his staff and his fellow priests, that he'd had "a full day."

Jack Kemp | March 13, 2002

Cal Thomas | March 12, 2002

George Will | March 12, 2002

--Throughout the six months since Sept. 11, Americans, who have a sociological itch and a psychoanalytic bent, have examined themselves for signs that, as was said immediately after the attacks, ``everything has changed.''

Mon, Mar 11, 2002

Pat Buchanan | March 11, 2002

In slamming 30 percent tariffs on imported steel, President Bush did more than keep his word to U.S. steelworkers. He sent a Reaganite message to the world: "I'm a free trader, but I put America first."

Suzanne Fields | March 11, 2002

Anyone who grew up on Disney movies and cartoons still does a double take on seeing Uncle Walt's fine old name linked with news.

War - or is it the politics of war? - has confirmed the vast disconnect between Washington and The People out yonder.

John Leo | March 11, 2002

Some 440,000 copies of Bernard Goldberg's book "Bias" are now in print. Who knew that a complaint about news bias would become a runaway best seller?
