David Limbaugh | July 20, 2002

Ann Coulter's wonderful new book, "Slander," has liberals in a delightful snit, for which accomplishment alone Ann deserves one of their hoity-toity literary awards.

Robert Novak | July 20, 2002

Ann Coulter | July 19, 2002

Even taking into account the extraordinary capacity of the left for hallucinatory self-aggrandizement, the insipid blather about the feminists and the total radio silence on Phyllis Schlafly is astonishing.

Michelle Malkin | July 19, 2002

Brent Bozell | July 19, 2002

Earlier this month, Phil Donahue went before a gathering of television critics to flack his new MSNBC prime-time program, and the Hollywood Reporter's Scott Collins, at least, was impressed.

Mona Charen | July 19, 2002

In the beginning was the myth that children were better off if their unhappy parents divorced.

Oliver North | July 19, 2002

In sports they call it a "rebuilding season." That's when the previous coach has so thoroughly screwed up a team that a new one is enlisted to change everything from players to playbooks to practice schedules -- all while trying desperately to win a few more games than his predecessor.

Debra J. Saunders | July 19, 2002

Suzanne Fields | July 18, 2002

"Road to Perdition" sounds like a man's movie. It has lots of gangster violence, but its theme is fundamentally female.

Ben Shapiro | July 18, 2002

UCLA is a wonderful, tolerant, diverse place. So it should come as no shock to anyone that John Walker Lindh, the American Taliban, will be attending this institution of higher learning 20 years from now, when he gets out of jail.

Emmett Tyrrell | July 18, 2002

Having returned from London, in whose gentlemen's clubs we are enjoined to wear "business attire or national dress," I had the perfect explanation for my wife's sexy dress at the Algerian embassy here in Washington the other night.

Ross Mackenzie | July 18, 2002

Bruce Bartlett | July 18, 2002

A new report from the Federation of Tax Administrators shows that 17 states have raised their cigarette tax rates so far this year. These increases will exacerbate an already serious interstate smuggling problem, which has been linked to terrorist activity.

Robert Novak | July 18, 2002

The White House announced that George W. Bush would march to Wall Street and call for a hard line on corporate crooks.

Jonah Goldberg | July 17, 2002

Despite the continuing downward spiral of the stock market, Democratic presidential contenders are not putting all of their political eggs in the domestic basket.

Dennis Prager | July 17, 2002

My 9-year-old son's best friend is black. This should hardly be worth writing a column about, let alone require an explanation.

Pat Buchanan | July 17, 2002

Traditionally, terrorism has meant the slaughter of innocents for political ends. But what was the political end of the atrocity at LAX?

Debra J. Saunders | July 17, 2002

Break out the champagne. Monday's plea bargain announcement means that America has been spared the trial of Marin Taliban John Walker Lindh, 21 -- and more important, the circus that inevitably would have surrounded it.

Linda Chavez | July 17, 2002

The surprise plea bargain in the John Walker Lindh case this week is one of several worrisome signs in the War on Terrorism.

Bill Murchison | July 17, 2002

Kathleen Parker | July 17, 2002

Half a century ago during Cold War America, one of the lessons children were taught was not to be a show-off.

John McCaslin | July 17, 2002

Beltway Beat spent this past weekend in Palm Beach County, Fla., where in a mock election Saturday (July 13), voters got to try out the nifty new $15 million computerized touch-screen voting machines - a vast improvement over the "butterfly ballots" of the 2000 presidential election.

The Bush Administration has announced the federal government is in the hole again after four years of "surpluses."

Ben Shapiro | July 16, 2002

Marvin Olasky | July 16, 2002

Have you noticed that people rarely sing the national anthem any more at baseball games and other sporting events? My sense is that we tend to listen while an entertainer sings.

Bruce Bartlett | July 16, 2002

The issue of "dynamic scoring" is heating up on Capitol Hill again. In recent weeks, three different committees in the House of Representatives have held hearings on it.

Thomas Sowell | July 15, 2002

Opponents of school vouchers have grown desperate in the wake of the Supreme Court's refusal to outlaw vouchers as violations of the First Amendment. And desperation seldom produces clarity of thought.

Pat Buchanan | July 15, 2002

Any regular viewer of CNN, MSNBC or Fox News has seen the videotape: A handcuffed black 16-year-old being body-slammed on the hood of a police car and punched in the face by a white cop.

Suzanne Fields | July 15, 2002

Debra J. Saunders | July 15, 2002

William F. Buckley | July 15, 2002
