Reich's attack on Bush's policy toward North Korea showed the typical cheekiness of the Bill Clinton administration.

Jonah Goldberg | August 08, 2003

This has got to be one of the strangest controversies in a long time. A movie that won't be released for months is being denounced by people who haven't seen it. Why?

Mona Charen | August 08, 2003

Jacob Sullum | August 08, 2003

Years ago I was handing out place cards at a banquet sponsored by the Reason Foundation when I was approached by a square-jawed man with bushy eyebrows and a prominent forehead. "Schwarz-e-neg-ger," he said helpfully.

Bruce Bartlett | August 08, 2003

Ann Coulter | August 07, 2003

Arnold Beichman recently wrote a column attacking my latest book, "Treason" – which he at least admits he didn't read – claiming he has the "names of 'innocent lives' Mr. McCarthy ruined." I was excited to see it.

Joel Mowbray | August 07, 2003

The recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Grutter vs. Bollinger permits colleges to award a "plus" to black, Hispanic and American Indian student applications for admission.

Brent Bozell | August 06, 2003

Should we feel sorry for the press as they try, frantically, to apply a barrel of pancake makeup to Howard Dean and present this raging leftist to America as a soggy "centrist"?

Jonah Goldberg | August 06, 2003

George Will | August 03, 2003

In this season of vast public carelessness, political Toms and Daisys are trashing civic life, making messes and moving on. And there are no large ideas commensurate with, and capable of at least explaining, the institutional damage being done.
