Anyone born or otherwise arrived since 1970 -and that would be about 68 million Americans -will have missed what others mourn with the death of David Brinkley.

David Limbaugh | June 14, 2003

While I continually read and am constantly told that conservatives have a problem with the Clintons, I think it is more accurate to say that Democrats do.

Robert Novak | June 14, 2003

No fellow Democrat volunteered to give Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton protective cover when she was the only senator voting against the nomination of Michael Chertoff as a judge on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia.

Michelle Malkin | June 13, 2003

It's every mother's worst nightmare: A 9-year-old girl, dragged from her San Jose, Calif., home in broad daylight, is kidnapped and raped over three days before being released by her attacker.

Jonah Goldberg | June 13, 2003

George Bush is a big-government conservative. You don't hear this very often because big-government liberals do most of the reporting on budget and economics stuff and, well, they like government spending.

Mona Charen | June 13, 2003

Reading Danielle Crittenden's new novel "amanda bright@home" brings to mind a riposte Bill Buckley once published to a particularly nasty correspondent.

Cal Thomas | June 13, 2003

David Brinkley, who died Wednesday night (June 11) at age 82, was the greatest broadcast journalist who ever lived. There are many reasons for that. One is that he had a gift for stating complicated things simply.

Oliver North | June 13, 2003

Maybe it's appropriate that Father's Day -- a secular holiday supported by Calvin Coolidge in 1924 and officially designated as the third Sunday in June by Lyndon Johnson -- is so close to Memorial Day.

Debra J. Saunders | June 13, 2003

Insiders say the recall of Gov. Gray Davis is inevitable. It's a revolution -- the people of California speaking out, as they did when they passed Proposition 13.

Jacob Sullum | June 13, 2003

The fattest speaker at a recent conference on obesity was the anti-fat campaigner Kelly Brownell, who never tires of comparing Ronald McDonald to Joe Camel.

George Will | June 13, 2003

To have worked alongside David Brinkley on television is to have experienced what might be called the Tommy Henrich Temptation.

Bruce Bartlett | June 13, 2003

Republicans are having a hard time getting traction on the idea that it is wrong to increase refundable child tax credits to families with no income tax liability.

Charles Krauthammer | June 13, 2003

Turns out the Iraqi National Museum lost not 170,000 treasures, but 33. Baghdad Bob was more accurate. You'd have to go back centuries, say, to the Mongol invasion of Baghdad in 1258, to find mendacity on this scale.

William F. Buckley | June 13, 2003

The agony and fury of well-situated critics of the Bush tax program is worth pondering politically and psychologically.

Thu, Jun 12, 2003

Ann Coulter | June 12, 2003

I could hardly breathe. Gulping for air, I started crying and yelling, "What do you mean? What are you saying? Why are the Clintons back again?"

Larry Elder | June 12, 2003

Dean emeritus Henry Manne of the George Mason University School of Law, author of "Insider Trading and the Stock Market," argues that authorities find insider trading virtually impossible to stop, let alone prove. His solution? Legalize insider trading.

Cal Thomas | June 12, 2003

He's been gone 20 years this month. Funny how when I write this, I wonder if some readers might think he walked out on us, as many do. No, Dad left us the only way he would. He died in June, 1983.

Suzanne Fields | June 12, 2003

Before the word "sex" was corrupted to "gender" (which was before homosexual was turned into "gay"), feminists described women with a myriad of negative images.

Ben Shapiro | June 12, 2003

The Democrats need a scandal. With only 17 months until Election 2004, George W. Bush is riding high in the opinion polls. The economy looks to be on the rebound. Reconstruction in Iraq is underway.

Emmett Tyrrell | June 12, 2003

Sen. Hillary Clinton's apocryphal memoir, following as it does upon the publication of her manservant Sidney Blumenthal's apocryphal memoir, reminds all serious students of the Clinton saga that the Clintons never let you down.

Joel Mowbray | June 12, 2003

The Imam’s peaceful and high-minded rhetoric notwithstanding, he then called for the death of “the Jews”—albeit in a relatively poetic fashion, asking for “God to purify Jerusalem from the footprint of the Jews.”

Armstrong Williams | June 12, 2003

My mother has always provided me with a calm, nurturing perspective that has helped me navigate the difficulties of life. But there are some things that only a father can provide.

Alan Reynolds | June 12, 2003

The Senate Intelligence Committee is investigating whether intelligence assessments about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction (WMD) were full of honest or dishonest mistakes, or whether temperate CIA reports were hyped by administration officials to gain support for the war.

George Will | June 12, 2003

Dick Gephardt may have an advantage--with McEntee, if not with the Democratic nominating electorate's antiwar activists--because he burnished his national security credentials by helping to write and pass the congressional resolution authorizing the use of force against Iraq.

Marvin Olasky | June 12, 2003

Many potential fans (particularly younger ones) complain that baseball is too slow. That's commonly phrased as "games last too long" -- yet football games last longer. Baseball's real problem is what I'd call a decline in Confrontations per Hour (CPH).

Robert Novak | June 12, 2003

Sen. Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas, a cautious liberal Democrat from a state trending Republican, was the clearest winner in the post-mortem of the year's great tax battle.

Thomas Sowell | June 11, 2003

Major league umpires are complaining about an electronic device that is being used to check how accurately they are calling balls and strikes.

Michelle Malkin | June 11, 2003

The stock-dumping doyenne is no match for the real mother of all brewing financial scandals. That moniker belongs to the twin behemoths Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Walter E. Williams | June 11, 2003

Oreo cookies should be banned from sale to children in California. That's according to Stephen Joseph, who filed a lawsuit against Nabisco last month in California's Marin County Superior Court.

Brent Bozell | June 11, 2003

ABC and Barbara Walters ought to be investigated for false advertising. The promos that plugged that Hillary Clinton memoir-selling interview promised, again and again for two weeks, to deliver "the interview we've all been waiting for, and the book that tells all. Sunday, June 8. Nothing's off-limits."

Jonah Goldberg | June 11, 2003

I cannot begin to express how disappointing I find all of the Hillary Clinton hoopla.

David Limbaugh | June 11, 2003

With their growing cacophony of charges against the Bush Administration for allegedly lying about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, the Democratic machine and its media allies are committing the very sin they're imputing to President Bush: undermining our national credibility.

Tony Blankley | June 11, 2003

Miss Hillary's new book surely will make it on The New York Times' best seller list. The only suspense left is whether it will be placed on the fiction or non-fiction list.

Pat Buchanan | June 11, 2003

In New Hampshire this weekend, Episcopalians elected as bishop an open homosexual, though the choice of Rev. Canon V. Gene Robinson must be approved by the national General Convention in Minneapolis in July.

Terry Jeffrey | June 11, 2003

The first rule of logic, Aristotle affirmed, is the law of non-contradiction: A thing cannot be "A" and "not A" at the same time. It's either one or the other.

Debra J. Saunders | June 11, 2003

First there was the "quagmire," as U.S. troops prepared to enter Baghdad. TV critics bemoaned the poor planning that, they said, had sabotaged the war strategy and could lead to bloody urban fighting and a prolonged conflict.

Linda Chavez | June 11, 2003

This Father's Day, more than one quarter of all children in the United States will live in homes without fathers.

Maggie Gallagher | June 11, 2003

For the first time in a long time, the news about fatherhood in America is pretty good. True, millions of American children still grow up without ever knowing a dad like I had -- a solid, loving, reliable fact of family life, always there when you need him, and even sometimes when you wished he was not.

Rebecca Hagelin | June 11, 2003

Dr. Henry J. Redd Jr. lived the life we should all strive for. He wasn't just a good man; he was extraordinary. I count it among the greatest of blessings to have been his daughter.

Chuck Colson | June 11, 2003

Any university dean will tell you that prejudice is a bad thing — that is, unless it's the "last acceptable prejudice."

John McCaslin | June 11, 2003

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton won't be reading her own long-awaited memoir, so she might as well pick up the just-released book of a former White House colleague.

Kathleen Parker | June 11, 2003

In the kitchen I caught snippets of Hillary Clinton and Barbara Walters musing over the New York senator's new book, while my male associates gathered in another room to indulge their apparently insatiable appetite for "The Godfather."

Bruce Bartlett | June 11, 2003

If any conservatives thought that the Times was going to stop being a thorn in their side, they quickly got a wake-up call on the child tax credit.

Thomas Sowell | June 10, 2003

If there was affirmative action in golf, nobody would give Tiger Woods half the credit he gets -- and deserves.

Mona Charen | June 10, 2003

The whole world is focused on what we've failed to find in Iraq -- to the point of neglecting what we have found. In doing so, the press is missing the significance of what the United States and Britain have achieved.

Cal Thomas | June 10, 2003

The resignation of two top editors at the New York Times last week was the journalistic equivalent of bringing down a president of the United States.

Dennis Prager | June 10, 2003

Like the proverbial broken record, some of us have been saying for years that only one thing can bring peace to the Middle East: a Palestinian civil war.

Matt Towery | June 10, 2003

The road to the White House becomes an eight-lane interstate when it reaches the state of Florida. Following the 2000 election controversy, the state has emerged as the most storied microcosm of America, and the crown jewel of presidential electoral politics.

Phyllis Schlafly | June 10, 2003

The Boston Globe revealed why tens of thousands of information technology jobs have been outsourced overseas in the past couple of years, and why major U.S. banks, brokerage houses and insurance companies plan to ship 500,000 more jobs abroad in the next five years.

Bill Murchison | June 10, 2003

What Newsweek calls "the country's most admired journalistic institution" will benefit -- it has to, it must -- from its ongoing encounter with shame and disaster. American journalism stands to benefit every bit as much.

Frank Gaffney | June 10, 2003

Almost exactly six years ago, Hong Kong was surrendered by Great Britain to Communist China.

Rich Lowry | June 10, 2003

Quietly, all across America, illegal immigrants are doing an extraordinary thing -- deporting themselves.

Jack Kemp | June 10, 2003

Today, the federal government regulates virtually every facet of our lives, and consequently there is hardly a crime conceivable that cannot be swept up in a federal indictment.

Brent Bozell | June 09, 2003

Imagine your family sitting down to catch the debut of "American Juniors" on Fox, watching elementary-school kids attempt to be singing stars, a healthy family-friendly offering. So what's on next?

Suzanne Fields | June 09, 2003

Madonna hasn't been "like a virgin" for a long time, but the Material Girl is desperate for new material to keep her warm in a cooling spotlight.

Diana West | June 09, 2003

Why it is that the world came to accept the mendacious vision of a terror-kingpin over a wealth of historical impressions recorded by writers, scientists and officials is a tantalizing question.

Larry Kudlow | June 09, 2003

Just two weeks since the passage of President Bush's tax cut -- one that strengthens economic incentives by raising after-tax investment returns by over 40 percent -- the bellwether Dow has gained more than 400 points.

Joel Mowbray | June 09, 2003

Her pain seemed as fresh and as raw as it must have been the night, two years ago, that her daughter’s life was cut short by a suicide bomber.

Robert Novak | June 09, 2003

The movement to replace just re-elected Democrat Gray Davis as governor of California is beginning to look like a runaway train with nobody at the controls.

Sun, Jun 08, 2003

Pat Buchanan | June 08, 2003

In July, Bravo begins airing "Boy Meets Boy," a six-episode series starring a bachelor who chooses, from 15 male contestants, a lover with whom he wishes to share a vacation, paid for by Bravo.

Rich Tucker | June 08, 2003

Here in Washington, there’s a lobbying group for just about every cause you can think of. But not for those who are anti-peace. Why?

John Leo | June 08, 2003

Was the recent Dick Locher political cartoon in the Chicago Tribune anti-Semitic? Lots of people think so. George Bush is down on one knee spreading dollar bills to entice Ariel Sharon onto a bridge leading to peace.

George Will | June 08, 2003

David Gunn, 65 and a glutton for punishment, left retirement to run Amtrak. His office is in magnificently restored Union Station, a relic of something Gunn knows is gone forever--the era of glamorous railroading.
