Paul Jacob | May 15, 2005

An aging pope, holding on to little more than life itself, did not impress everyone. Not a few Catholics ? and probably many more non-Catholics ? nurtured the opinion that John Paul II should have stepped down long before his final days.

George Will | May 15, 2005

Mike Adams | May 13, 2005

Good morning, and welcome to today's edition of 'What's News?'

Oliver North | May 13, 2005

After listening to caller feedback on the scores of radio interviews I?ve done so far on my new book, I?ve got a renewed passion for my heartfelt message: Parents can fight the culture -- and win.

Rich Lowry | May 13, 2005

Thomas Sowell | May 12, 2005

The latest liberal crusade is against the Wal-Mart stores.

Larry Elder | May 12, 2005

When Reverend Sharpton ran for president, he accused the media of racism for ignoring his candidacy. Since the word racist gets recklessly thrown around, does it also apply to the 'Today' show?

Suzanne Fields | May 12, 2005

If you live long enough, you'll get to see history rewritten. Voices of a new generation, with no experience of the past, add new interpretations of their parents' and grandparents' early years.

Emmett Tyrrell | May 12, 2005

Students of American politics are about to witness a real battle royal in the Senate.

Alan Reynolds | May 12, 2005

George Will | May 12, 2005

'I can't tell you,' Paul Wolfowitz says with justifiable asperity, 'how much I resent being called a Wilsonian.'

Herman Cain | May 12, 2005

The rhetoric of class warfare is as old as dirt. Even Pharaoh kept the slaves fighting among themselves to extend their captivity.

Ross Mackenzie | May 12, 2005

So the outrageous behavior of the Democratic left in the Senate - and in Washington more broadly - has brought the Republicans to the brink of employing the nuclear option (more dispassionately: the fairness option) for nominees to the federal courts.

Marvin Olasky | May 12, 2005

Earlier this spring, U.S. News & World Report had a front cover headline: 'Great Jobs Ahead!'

John McCaslin | May 12, 2005

Ann Coulter | May 11, 2005

Michelle Malkin | May 11, 2005

When was the last time you thanked a cop? And wouldn't it be nice if, for just a brief moment, the mainstream media would hold a ceasefire in its incessant cop-bashing crusades?

John Stossel | May 11, 2005

True or false: If you give a kid sugar, he'll get hyper.

Walter E. Williams | May 11, 2005

Avoiding long-term poverty is not rocket science. First, graduate from high school. Second, get married before you have children, and stay married. Third, work at any kind of job, even one that starts out paying the minimum wage.

Brent Bozell | May 11, 2005

ABC wasn't the only group of 'news' manufacturers to lament Bush's speech in Latvia.

Tony Blankley | May 11, 2005

It has been an awkward winter and spring for the Grand Old Party, but as the city sanitation department sweeps away the last of the cherry blossoms, the Republicans seem to be re-forming as a coherent fighting mechanism.

Cal Thomas | May 11, 2005

The Huffington Post, an Internet blog that debuted May 9 after a campaign that would have delighted P.T. Barnum, makes me nostalgic for the good old days of journalism.

Terry Jeffrey | May 11, 2005

It may have been providential that it was not long before Mother's Day that the congressionally chartered National Academy of Sciences announced it had developed a set of commandments to govern cloning.

Ben Shapiro | May 11, 2005

On Monday morning at 6 a.m., Laura's father Jerry found both girls butchered off a bicycle path in Beulah Park.

Debra J. Saunders | May 11, 2005

Linda Chavez | May 11, 2005

Unions are losing members and clout at the bargaining table, but that doesn't mean they aren't still powerful players on the political scene.

Joel Mowbray | May 11, 2005

Tomorrow, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee takes up the most important Congressional vote in the still-new second George W. Bush presidential term: whether or not to send John Bolton's nomination to the full Senate.

David Limbaugh | May 10, 2005

Just like certain abusive spouses, the party can't live with Christians but can't live without them (politically).

Dennis Prager | May 10, 2005

Ask believing Christians -- probably from as young as 8 years of age -- what their mission as Christians is, and it is overwhelmingly likely they will answer, 'to bring people to Christ' or 'spread the Gospel.'

Just when polling numbers reflect a low point in the American public's outlook on money and government matters, a bright light at the end of the tunnel may be appearing for President Bush and his quest to reform Social Security.

Bill Murchison | May 10, 2005

The New York Times, for reasons it clearly thought sufficient, buried the story on page six of the business section. I call for a timely exhumation. This is a good story. It matters to our honorable profession, the newspaper business.

John McCaslin | May 10, 2005

Tens of thousands of Washingtonians were on hand Saturday for the 80th anniversary of the world famous Virginia Gold Cup steeplechase race at Great Meadow in The Plains.

Americans inevitably look at the British election results through the prism of Iraq.

Brent Bozell | May 09, 2005

The White House Correspondents Dinner might sound like a gray and boring journalistic event, but for Washingtonians, it's becoming Hollywood Night.

Star Parker | May 09, 2005

The use of the Senate filibuster to block floor votes on judicial nominees, as Democrats have been doing, is a distortion of good government in the United States.

Mike Adams | May 09, 2005

I am writing to apply for the position of Director of the WRC (Women's Resource Center) at UNC Wilmington.

Cal Thomas | May 09, 2005

Suzanne Fields | May 09, 2005

The 'runaway bride' is the perfect story for our time, a tale made in cable-TV heaven, with something for everybody, including me.

Diana West | May 09, 2005

The event under consideration -- the first lady's monologue at the White House Correspondents' Dinner -- weighs in alongside flotsam and jetsam, but the question has hefty ramifications.

Phyllis Schlafly | May 09, 2005

Why has Congress appropriated taxpayer money to give perverse incentives that break up families and deprive children of their fathers?

John Leo | May 09, 2005

The year is 2014. The press as we know it no longer exists. Traditional reporting has collapsed.

Chuck Colson | May 09, 2005

If you took your neighbor's daughter to the mall to have her ears pierced, you could be arrested. But take her for an abortion and, to some, you?re a hero.

Armstrong Williams | May 09, 2005

Recently my mother was in town visiting. The visit was wonderful and calming, taking me away from the busy workaday schedule, and reminding me about the truly important things in life?family, friendships, human interconnectedness.

Paul Jacob | May 08, 2005

On a quiet spring morning, they're working in Washington. Working hard, as the president would say. Working hard to regulate, burden, and impede your right to communicate about politics. About them.

Rich Tucker | May 08, 2005

Further brain study is important. But we?d all benefit if doctors showed the same curiosity about whether our childhood vaccination policy needs improvement.

George Will | May 08, 2005

Pat Moynihan was puzzled. He was speaking in March 1994, on an almost deserted Senate floor, about Social Security but some unlikely people were listening.
