Pat Buchanan | November 23, 2003

From the sublime to the ridiculous, we have one Margaret Marshall, chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, ordering the state legislature to enact, in 180 days, a law giving homosexuals the right to marry.

Paul Jacob | November 23, 2003

I don't want socialist-lite in my capitalist presidents, and I don't want a "compassionate conservative" (if that means robbing people with a smile instead of a frown).

George Will | November 23, 2003

It speaks well of Dick Gephardt that he speaks so uncomfortably when compelled to speak -- as he understandably would prefer not to do -- about campaign finance law.

William F. Buckley | November 23, 2003

I was asked by a television network to comment on the career of President Kennedy. I agreed to do so and do not know how many other views were solicited, or when the program was aired.

Kathleen Parker | November 22, 2003

Following the gay marriage debate - and now the Massachusetts court ruling legalizing gay marriage - feels like being lost in a house of mirrors.

Robert Novak | November 22, 2003

Answering complaints by congressional Republicans that George W. Bush was in London when he should have been in Washington lobbying for his endangered legislative program, the White House contended he had postponed the British visit three times and could not do so again.

Brent Bozell | November 21, 2003

Have you noticed how Britney Spears keeps sinking lower into the barrel of sexual shock tactics? Is this evidence of "maturation"... or just record-label cold sweats?

Jonah Goldberg | November 21, 2003

Everyone agrees that we are well on our way to living in a country where allowing same-sex marriage is the law of the land, and yet virtually no major national politician and neither of the major political parties supports the idea.

David Limbaugh | November 21, 2003

Given the public outcry about the federal court's order for the removal of Judge Roy Moore's Ten Commandments display, I'm surprised there isn't as much alarm about the Massachusetts Supreme Court decision to sanctify gay marriage.

Oliver North | November 21, 2003

Attention members of the Fourth Estate. You are missing an extraordinary opportunity to add yet another meaningless moniker to your pathetic pantheon of social stereotypes.

Rich Tucker | November 21, 2003

Some things are so obvious, it seems silly to even say them. And then the president goes to Great Britain, and it becomes necessary to point out that the United States is the greatest defender of freedom in the world.

Chuck Colson | November 21, 2003

Forty years ago, a paralyzed world watched the horror of John F. Kennedy’s assassination. That same day two other notable personalities quietly exited the world almost without notice.

Charles Krauthammer | November 21, 2003

Scoff if you will, but I stayed home Tuesday to watch a chess game.

Ann Coulter | November 20, 2003

With economic growth and name recognition of the average Democratic presidential candidate both running at about 7 percent, the Democrats are in trouble. Unable to rouse more than the Saddam-supporting left with their kooky foreign-policy ideas, the Democrats had been counting on a lousy economy.

Larry Elder | November 20, 2003

A "religion of peace," says President Bush about Islam. But investigative journalist Robert Spencer, in his new book "Onward Muslim Soldiers: How Jihad Still Threatens America and the West," argues that what we call "Islamic extremism" stems from a straightforward reading of the Koran and interpretative Islamic texts.

Suzanne Fields | November 20, 2003

The most troubling example of racial inequality in America today is the inner city school. Civil-rights iniquities begin here.

Rich Lowry | November 20, 2003

It is not often that President Bush has invoked William Tyndale, the martyred reformer who translated the Bible into English in the 16th century, in the course of defending the war on terrorism.

John McCaslin | November 20, 2003

Is that the smiling mug of President Bush on first lady Laura Bush's purse?

Robert Novak | November 20, 2003

President Bush's departure this week for a less-than-friendly reception in Britain while his most important piece of domestic legislation is in jeopardy looks like the wrong trip to the wrong place at the wrong time.

Alan Reynolds | November 20, 2003

It was unseemly enough when the chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, William Donaldson, was obviously competing for the headlines with Elliot Spitzer, attorney general of New York.

Joel Mowbray | November 20, 2003

After a year in which financial improprieties gobbled up headlines like never before, it would stand to reason that a brewing scandal involving a major international organization, millions of dollars, and alleged tax evasion would receive similar treatment.

Bruce Bartlett | November 20, 2003

On Nov. 18, the Bush administration announced a decision to impose new trade restrictions on imports of some Chinese textiles.

Larry Kudlow | November 20, 2003

Gen. Wesley Clark's shooting-star campaign for president is burning out as it crosses the sky. So many flip-flops and so few clear messages. Is he for the Iraq War?

Ross Mackenzie | November 20, 2003

The Massachusetts Supreme Court's 4-3 decision sanctioning - mandating - homosexual marriage is but the latest in a long line of cultural assaults, large and small.

George Will | November 20, 2003

Even if he had not gone to Dallas, he probably would have died long before now.

Thomas Sowell | November 19, 2003

A few years ago, the Supreme Court voted 5 to 4 that carrying a gun near a school was not interstate commerce. To most people, the decision was obvious. So why 5 to 4?

Michelle Malkin | November 19, 2003

They are bomb-throwing Birkenstock brats. Wolves in hemp clothing. Enemies of scientific progress. Inveterate haters of humanity.

Walter E. Williams | November 19, 2003

The largest losers of America's anti-tobacco crusade aren't tobacco companies and smokers, it's the American people who are incrementally giving up private property rights.

Brent Bozell | November 19, 2003

The most amazing part of the Jindal story is watching how liberal-media types twisted themselves into pretzels in case Jindal actually had won.

Mike Adams | November 19, 2003

"Because your registration status had (sic) been revoked, the College Republicans has (sic) lost all the rights and privileges of a registered student organization…"

Tony Blankley | November 19, 2003

Indeed, in the major media's bumptious and irresponsible youth, the Rathers, Bradleys, Bernsteins and Jennings could not completely disguise their prankish glee at the official discomfort their shady methods had caused.

Ben Shapiro | November 19, 2003

By Friday morning, the debate was over. Democrats had won. Republicans had been unable to reach cloture.

Terry Jeffrey | November 19, 2003

Are marriages made in heaven, or in courtrooms? Are civil laws that define "the family" man's best effort to codify his understanding of God's law, or are they merely artificial constructions conveniently pieced together by legislatures and judges to suit their passing political and ideological interests?

Linda Chavez | November 19, 2003

The Center for Equal Opportunity, which I head, has begun challenging racially exclusive programs at dozens of colleges and universities.

Rebecca Hagelin | November 19, 2003

"Guys, chances are, someday you will go to war." These were the sobering words my husband, Andy, spoke to our sons within days after that fateful September morning now known as 9-11.

Maggie Gallagher | November 19, 2003

So at last it has happened: Four judges in Massachusetts, ruling in a same-sex marriage case, have decided that children don't need mothers and fathers, that marriage has nothing to do with getting children what they need.

Kathleen Parker | November 19, 2003

The real story within the "real" story of Jessica Lynch seems yet untold despite a made-for-TV movie and a book by former New York Times golden yarn-spinner Rick Bragg.

William F. Buckley | November 19, 2003

The trial of John Muhammad was followed by the reading public as a high suspense story. In the shadow of O.J. Simpson, this is likely to happen for years and decades to come. If O.J. was found not guilty, why can't everybody be found not guilty?

Thomas Sowell | November 18, 2003

Reader responses to the discussion of government-controlled medical care in this column raised questions that need answering.

David Limbaugh | November 18, 2003

It is difficult to quantify the degree of misinformation, hypocrisy, malevolence and impropriety issuing from Democratic ranks in their shameless hijacking of the president's judicial appointment power.

Cal Thomas | November 18, 2003

The 4-3 ruling, which orders the state legislature to write a law permitting arrangements similar to what the Vermont Supreme Court approved in 1999 when it allowed "civil unions" the same benefits as marriage, is further evidence that G.K. Chesterton's warning has come true: "The danger when men stop believing in God is not that they'll believe in nothing, but that they'll believe in anything."

Dennis Prager | November 18, 2003

I expected angry mail, and I received it. Within three days of the column's publication, I received over 300 e-mails, most from women, and most angry.

Debra J. Saunders | November 18, 2003

In his opening act, he pledged to restore California's place as the world's "golden dream."

Matt Towery | November 18, 2003

It was an indictment of what Goldberg believes to be an unintended but pervasive liberal prejudice in America's television and print newsrooms. Now, Goldberg is back with a more in-depth look at why this perceived bias exists.

Bill Murchison | November 18, 2003

Protesters clog London on the occasion of President Bush's visit there, asserting their sovereign right to say anything absurd that comes to mind.

John McCaslin | November 18, 2003

I was dining at Taverna on Capitol Hill the other night and spotted Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich sitting in a dark corner almost by his lonesome self. Which reminded me that the Ohio congressman is in need of a first lady.

Bruce Bartlett | November 18, 2003

There is an important debate now taking place among monetary policy analysts over the question of "capacity utilization." Its resolution will tell us much about the future course of the U.S. economy.

Mike Adams | November 17, 2003

Administrators at the University of North Carolina at Wonderland (UNCW) sometimes have a hard time striking a balance between the right of free speech, and the right of minorities, women, and homosexuals never to be offended by anything at any time.

Cal Thomas | November 17, 2003

On election night, 1960, I watched the returns trickle in to Huntley and Brinkley on a black-and-white TV set at an American University fraternity house in Washington.

Suzanne Fields | November 17, 2003

Jessica Lynch and Elizabeth Smart as portrayed on the small screen are appropriate heroines for our times (i.e., ratings month). Their stories stoop to the lowest common denominators of sensation, tawdry sentimentalism and phony innuendo, camouflaged with emotional color.

Debra J. Saunders | November 17, 2003

The New Yorker's Jon Lee Anderson decided to visit her this summer to see if her Saddamist sympathies had dampened after the war started. Her answer was that Hussein wasn't "all bad" -- he built great roads.

Diana West | November 17, 2003

I've always had a soft spot for the Cleveland mayor who, nearly 40 years ago, after a Beatles concert in his fair city ended in mayhem, banned all rock concerts from public venues.

Frank Gaffney | November 17, 2003

Most Americans were cheered by recent news of an improving economic forecast, but not the Democrats who have made blaming George W. Bush for the last few years’ downturn the primary argument for turning him out of office.

Armstrong Williams | November 17, 2003

I recently appeared on the November 11, 2003 episode of the Montel Williams show. The program featured guests who had lost loved ones in the war in Iraq.

Robert Novak | November 17, 2003

Partisan animosity that has brought operations of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence to a standstill reached new depths on the early evening of Nov. 5.

Rich Lowry | November 17, 2003

Inattentive voters listening to the Democrats' anti-Bush rhetoric could be forgiven for thinking that the Depression-era Republican had returned from the grave to occupy the White House once again.

John Leo | November 17, 2003

he article, “We’re Not Losing the Culture Wars Anymore” by senior editor Brian Anderson, argues that the left’s near monopoly in the entertainment and news media is “skidding to a startlingly swift halt.”

Jack Kemp | November 17, 2003

Imagine waking up this Christmas morning to discover the Grinch had slapped a tax on logging onto the Internet, sending an e-mail and visiting a Web site

Mona Charen | November 16, 2003

I sometimes wonder whether a nation that sends girls like Jessica Lynch into battle and punishes soldiers like Lt. Col. Allen West is quite in its right mind.

Paul Jacob | November 16, 2003

If a person wanted to be President For Life--like FDR, say--what's the first institutional restraint he would want to get rid of?

George Will | November 16, 2003

His tariffs were supposed to provide a three-year ``breathing space'' for domestic steel makers -- who have been on the respirator of protection for decades.
