David Limbaugh | October 26, 2002

It's difficult to think of a more compelling reason to vote for Jim Talent for Senate than that the notoriously liberal St. Louis Post-Dispatch endorsed his opponent, Senator Jean Carnahan.

Debra J. Saunders | October 26, 2002

If you oppose abortion rights, you're anti-abortion. Oppose capital punishment? You're anti-death penalty. If you oppose President Bush's Iraq policy, you're anti-Bush on Iraq.

Robert Novak | October 26, 2002

Thomas Sowell | October 25, 2002

Those of us who are optimists believe that someday sanity will return to our society. Our media, our officials -- perhaps even our schools and colleges -- will begin to talk sense. Those of you who are young may live to see it.

Michelle Malkin | October 25, 2002

The mainstream media informed us this week that Lee Malvo, the reportedly 17-year-old youth charged as a material witness in the sniper investigation along with his stepfather John Mohammed, is a "Jamaican national."

Mona Charen | October 25, 2002

On Oct. 29, that bastion of feminism (and for what it's worth, my alma mater), Barnard College, will host a conference on motherhood.

Oliver North | October 25, 2002

Four weeks ago in New Jersey, to avert political embarrassment, the Democrat party replaced the ethically challenged Sen. Bob Torricelli on the ballot with the aging former senator and Torricelli nemesis, Frank Lautenberg.

Debra J. Saunders | October 25, 2002

In the annals of rank opportunism, Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., deserves a special place. All hail her efforts to exploit the Beltway-sniper killings by pushing a bad "ballistic fingerprinting" bill.

Jacob Sullum | October 25, 2002

Michel Houellebecq may have been guilty, but I'm still glad he was acquitted. The award-winning novelist, who has been dubbed "a literary Eminem" and "the Ozzy Osbourne of modern French letters," stood accused of inciting religious hatred, an offense that in France carries a sentence of up to 18 months.

Ross Mackenzie | October 25, 2002

The arrest of John Muhammad and John Malvo may mark the end of one of this generation's most harrowing, fear-gripping stories - affecting millions.

John McCaslin | October 25, 2002

Since Congress has just passed a bill to include the "city" of Washington, D.C., in the Quarter Dollar Program commemorating the 50 "states," we asked readers to help Treasury Secretary Paul H. O'Neill select an appropriate design for the tails side of the coin.

Armstrong Williams | October 25, 2002

Law enforcement officials arrested two men yesterday in connection with the sniper shootings in the Washington, D.C. area, which have killed 10 and wounded three others.

Rich Lowry | October 25, 2002

The school-lunch program used to be considered one of the triumphs of liberalism. Should a Republican suggest trimming or altering the program in the slightest, he would promptly be denounced as an ogre determined to starve poor schoolchildren.

Charles Krauthammer | October 25, 2002

During the Clinton administration, which of these deserving nations became the largest recipient of U.S. foreign aid in the entire Asian-Pacific region?

Ann Coulter | October 24, 2002

The anti-death penalty lobby never sleeps. Unable to convince the public that savage murderers should be given radio shows rather than lethal injections, anti-death penalty zealots have turned to lying about proof of guilt.

Thomas Sowell | October 24, 2002

During election years, people in the media seem to be forever lamenting the fact that millions of Americans who are eligible to vote do not in fact go to the polls.

Brent Bozell | October 24, 2002

Rupert Murdoch is beloved by many political conservative junkies for adding the diversity of Fox News Channel to the cable lineup.

Larry Elder | October 24, 2002

Gun-control proponents, predictably, in the wake of the Beltway sniper, urge still more gun-control laws.

Jonah Goldberg | October 24, 2002

It's funny, here in Washington where the sniper's bullets are flying and people are serpentining their way into the Starbucks, one of the chief complaints is that the media is covering the murder spree too much.

Suzanne Fields | October 24, 2002

The sniper strikes in Washington and its environs but the impact is felt far away. Sudden and violent death, delivered at random, strikes fear in everyone.

Ben Shapiro | October 24, 2002

With the latest attack on Israelis by Palestinian terrorists, it is time to re-evaluate Israel's current strategy with regard to the intifada. And it is time for America to re-evaluate its plan for peace in the Middle East.

Emmett Tyrrell | October 24, 2002

This midterm election is about atmosphere. It is about how the voters feel. Objective considerations have been fading from electoral politics for a long time.

Ross Mackenzie | October 24, 2002

About the sniper, let's listen in on a make-believe conversation among three people at a local gathering spot....

Bruce Bartlett | October 24, 2002

Going into this election cycle, Democrats thought that corporate financial scandals would reinvigorate the class warfare issue for them. But it hasn't worked out that way.

George Will | October 24, 2002

It was but a brief reference in Mayor Michael Bloomberg's inaugural address 10 months ago. He vowed--less than four months after terrorism crippled lower Manhattan--that ``we will bring new life to our waterfront.''

Robert Novak | October 24, 2002

Sen. Byron Dorgan of North Dakota, chairman of the Senate Democratic Policy Committee, on CNN last Saturday night accused Republican senators of blocking a vote on President Bush's proposed new Department of Homeland Security.

Larry Kudlow | October 24, 2002

Will the much-anticipated war on Iraq disrupt the American economy? That's highly doubtful. No matter what the pessimistic pundits say, the U.S. economy is slowly mending.

Rich Lowry | October 24, 2002

Experts are puzzled about why North Korea has admitted to its covert nuclear-weapons program. What irrational demons could be driving Kim Jong Il to make such a damaging concession?

Michelle Malkin | October 23, 2002

"You've got an economy that is in shambles," complains Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, a South Dakota Democrat, whose party is now hounding President Bush for neglecting America's poor, the disenfranchised, the elderly and the unemployed.

Walter E. Williams | October 23, 2002

When asked to comment about Secretary of State Colin Powell's position on the possible use of military force against Iraq, singer/activist Harry Belafonte said: "There were those slaves who lived on the plantation, and there were those slaves that lived in the house.

Jonah Goldberg | October 23, 2002

It's funny, here in Washington where the sniper's bullets are flying and people are serpentining their way into the Starbucks, one of the chief complaints is that the media is covering the murder spree too much.

David Limbaugh | October 23, 2002

The New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) invited three experts on teenage sexual activity to speak at its annual convention but withdrew the invitation when it discovered they promote the abstinence message.

Cal Thomas | October 23, 2002

I don't mean to second-guess law enforcement (or maybe I do), but if I run a red light in my neighborhood, a camera takes a picture of my license plate and I get a ticket.

Dennis Prager | October 23, 2002

Evangelical Christians believe that it is necessary for a person to believe in Jesus Christ in order to be saved.

Linda Chavez | October 23, 2002

Someone set Rita Montero's Volvo on fire as it sat parked in front of her Denver home last week. Maybe it's just a coincidence that Montero is leading the effort in Colorado to replace failing bilingual education programs with English immersion classes.

Kathleen Parker | October 23, 2002

I'm thinking of writing a column about North Korea's recently revealed nuclear capability, or the latest sniper attack, or Saddam Hussein's sudden beneficence toward his prison population -something newsy -but am stopped in my tracks by the realization that I am not yet in touch with my feelings.

John McCaslin | October 23, 2002

To appeal to the entire black-tie audience, two guests of honor have agreed to be on hand for next month's presentation of Service to America Medals to top U.S. government officials: White House Chief of Staff Andrew H. Card Jr. and White House Chief of Staff Leo McGarry.

Brent Bozell | October 22, 2002

The next time you see a network correspondent standing in front of a Baghdad backdrop, just think of those TV knife-set commercials, because the question of the day is: "Now, how much would you pay?"

Mona Charen | October 22, 2002

I knew my neighbors were taking this hard when I shopped at the local Costco. The place is so popular that it's usually difficult to find a parking space there even in the midst of a downpour.

Cal Thomas | October 22, 2002

Alfred Nobel must have been a good man, full of good intentions. The science and literature prizes named for him recognize legitimate achievement in these disciplines.

Diana West | October 22, 2002

In a time of more controlled chaos, linking the Rev. Jerry Falwell to French author Michel Houellebecq would be unthinkable.

Phyllis Schlafly | October 22, 2002

The voters in Colorado and Massachusetts will have a chance to vote yes or no on Nov. 5 about bilingual education.

Frank Gaffney | October 22, 2002

Up in Maine, where President Bush and his family have long vacationed, they tell a story about the crusty "Down Easterner" who tries to help a lost tourist get to his destination.

Bruce Bartlett | October 22, 2002

Optimistic projections about Republican prospects in the House and Senate on Nov. 5 have Democrats almost hysterical with rage.

Marvin Olasky | October 22, 2002

One reader, Randy Yelverton, asked some good questions from a biblical perspective about support for the Bush administration on Iraq. Yelverton notes, "If we believe in the sanctity of life, then we must seriously scrutinize any action that will take so many lives."

William F. Buckley | October 22, 2002

The desire to do something about Henry Kissinger is, for many, a popular pursuit; for some, an obsession.

Jack Kemp | October 22, 2002

Pat Buchanan | October 21, 2002

"As two ... sitting Senators who served in World War II, we see the next Hitler in Saddam Hussein." So write Ted Stevens and John Warner in a Washington Times column titled, "Hitler's Disciple in Baghdad."

Suzanne Fields | October 21, 2002

Suddenly Washington is awash in nostalgia for the safety and security of the Cold War.

Debra J. Saunders | October 21, 2002

Maggie Gallagher | October 21, 2002

Here are the facts: Most doctors do not like to perform abortions, and most abortionists like to make money.

William F. Buckley | October 21, 2002

My brothers in defining conservative orthodoxy have taken a position on election-spending legislation.

Kathleen Parker | October 21, 2002

Hello out there in TV Land! Sorry, I couldn't help myself. That's me, Bullwinkle. But Hokey Smokes, it's been so long!

Robert Novak | October 21, 2002

Thursday night's telephone interviews about the race for governor showed beleaguered Republican candidate Bill Simon leading Democratic Gov. Gray Davis 34.2 percent to 33.7 percent.

George Will | October 21, 2002

Here in a church hall, addressing a women's club that is sympathetic and polite, Rep. Robert Ehrlich, Republican candidate for governor, must wonder why he even went to that debate the NAACP sponsored a few weeks ago.
