Brent Bozell | August 16, 2002

The good news: The summer of 2002 has been a pleasing cornucopia for family movies. Nearly every weekend, parents have a new movie their kids are pressuring them to see.

Jonah Goldberg | August 16, 2002

Mona Charen | August 16, 2002

Dr. Steven Hatfill may or may not be the killer who sent anthrax through the mail last year. But something smells about the way the FBI is handling this matter.

Jacob Sullum | August 16, 2002

Ryan Scott probably should consider himself lucky that he wasn't arrested for trying to carry firearms onto an airplane. True, there were a few extenuating circumstances: Ryan is only 9, and the guns were toys that no one would mistake for actual weapons.

Larry Kudlow | August 16, 2002

It's not the accounting fraud, the corporate corruption, Martha Stewart, left-wing demagoguery about tax cuts for the rich, the budget deficit or the war on terror.

John McCaslin | August 16, 2002

Ann Coulter | August 15, 2002

Whenever a liberal begins a peevish complaint with "of course, we all agree ..." your antennae should go up. This is how liberals couch statements they assume all Americans would demand they make, but which they secretly chafe at.

Thomas Sowell | August 15, 2002

According to the U.S. Bureau of the Census, in the year 2000 median household income in the United States reached "the highest level ever recorded" up to that time.

Bruce Bartlett | August 15, 2002

In earlier columns, I have written about the issue of "dynamic scoring." This is an issue because the current way that the revenue impact of tax changes is calculated -- called static scoring -- leaves out any impact on economic growth.

David Limbaugh | August 14, 2002

Please don't doubt for a second that there's a calculated method to Democratic Party Chairman Terry McAuliffe's madness in ruthlessly attacking President Bush at his party's summer meeting in Las Vegas. He's sending up trial balloons.

This past year, Los Angeles Family Magazine asked me to write an article making the case for the two-parent family.

Maggie Gallagher | August 14, 2002

Maybe, as the song says, they can pave paradise to put up a parking lot, but can a city grab church land to erect a Costco? Cypress, Calif., apparently thought so.

William F. Buckley | August 14, 2002

Brent Bozell | August 13, 2002

Suzanne Fields | August 12, 2002
