The other day, Hawaii politicians waded out into the desert of idiot economics and said 'the water's fine!'

Caroline Glick | September 10, 2005

On September 30, 2000, The New York Times ran a photograph that, no doubt, for the photo editor, told the entire tale of the then two-day-old Palestinian terror war against Israel.

Doug Giles | September 10, 2005

For me, watching Mayor Nagin and Governor Blanco handle the New Orleans/ Louisiana debacle is like watching Moe and Curly trying to work a Rubik’s cube.

Rich Tucker | September 10, 2005

Children of the ’80s may fondly recall the program 'You Can’t Do That on Television.' It was especially entertaining when they dumped green slime on Alanis Morissette, something many wish they could do now.

Kathleen Parker | September 10, 2005

It feels like O.J. all over again. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, we are reminded that black America and white America see things differently.

Robert Novak | September 10, 2005

Alarm has been spread through Louisiana legal circles that Hurricane Katrina's inundation of courts and law enforcement records in up to eight parishes (counties) could force release of criminal defendants.

You would think every major corporation likes to nurture its image as not only the maker or provider of a great product or service but also as a good corporate citizen.

Jonah Goldberg | September 09, 2005

For reasons good and bad - mostly bad - the media establishment has decided that Hurricane Katrina should be a 'teaching moment' about race and class issues.

David Limbaugh | September 09, 2005

It used to be that Democrats just nodded in tacit agreement among themselves that conservatives were racially insensitive.

Mona Charen | September 09, 2005

The only ray of sunshine in the days following 9/11 was the magnificent unity displayed by Americans.

Oliver North | September 09, 2005

The Congress has questions about Katrina. The Congress wants their questions answered -- now!

Chuck Colson | September 09, 2005

What have we learned in the four years since September 11? Not quite as much as we should have.

Charles Krauthammer | September 09, 2005

The author of this calamity was, first and foremost, Nature (or if you prefer, Nature's God). The suffering was augmented, aided and abetted in descending order of culpability by the following:

Ann Coulter | September 08, 2005

In light of the fact that Sen. Teddy Kennedy feels lawyer-client privileged materials should be produced in the case of a public servant – such as John Roberts – we now continue with my imaginary version of Teddy's confidential communications with his lawyer the day after he drove Mary Jo Kopechne off a bridge at Chappaquiddick.

Larry Elder | September 08, 2005

Yes, state, local and federal officials failed to appreciate the severity and gravity of this storm and its aftermath, and failed to properly evacuate the citizens from New Orleans. But how does this add up to racism?

Cal Thomas | September 08, 2005

How one responds to a natural disaster like Katrina says a lot about one's character and motives.

Suzanne Fields | September 08, 2005

Everyone has an image of New Orleans before the flood, even those who have never been there.

Matt Towery | September 08, 2005

The fallout over Hurricane Katrina continued even as Florida and other regions of the East Coast faced the possibility of their own damaging storm.

Robert Novak | September 08, 2005

Democrats have seized on the administration's performance in handling Katrina to bash George W. Bush, but Republicans are not much happier with him.

Marvin Olasky | September 08, 2005

Before expressing disgust with America, please spend a couple of hours reading through Internet postings like this one:

John McCaslin | September 08, 2005

Every month, the National D-Day Museum in New Orleans displays an artifact of the month.

Megan Basham | September 07, 2005

While most of America is embracing New Orleans’ tragedy as a chance to pull together and demonstrate a still-strong Christian character of caring for the least of these, Hollywood is embracing it as an opportunity to display their foolishness, egotism and utter lack of sensitivity.

Michelle Malkin | September 07, 2005

So, what is armchair first responder Sen. Hillary Clinton's first response to the Hurricane Katrina disaster?

John Stossel | September 07, 2005

Politicians and the media are furious about price increases in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. They want gas stations and water sellers punished.

Walter E. Williams | September 07, 2005

According to a couple of poorly trained economists, there's a bright side to Hurricane Katrina's destruction.

Brent Bozell | September 07, 2005

A major news event follows a very routine pattern. First, we get the hard news phase, where reporters relate the unfolding dramatic facts.

Mike Adams | September 07, 2005

One of the toughest things about being a teacher is dealing with all the latest 'syndromes' in our culture of victimization.

Jonah Goldberg | September 07, 2005

The telethon was intended to raise millions of dollars for victims, a great many of them poor black folks. What was to be gained from insulting untold millions of middle-class voters who disagree with West about Bush, the war or America?

David Limbaugh | September 07, 2005

In the immediate aftermath of Katrina's wrath, two almost contradictory reactions have emerged.

Tony Blankley | September 07, 2005

Putting aside, for the moment only, which individuals are guilty of malfeasance in office, it is undeniable that the system America established for disaster relief failed miserably last week -- and thousands of Americans died because of it.

Terry Jeffrey | September 07, 2005

No one may be better placed to understand Chief Justice William Rehnquist's unfinished counter-revolution than his former clerk, John Roberts.

Ben Shapiro | September 07, 2005

With the death of Chief Justice William Rehnquist, President Bush has another Supreme Court seat to fill.

Linda Chavez | September 07, 2005

In our federal system of government, the national government does not step in -- even in dire emergency -- until state officials request that help. But what do you do when those officials are dysfunctional, as they clearly were in Louisiana?

Armstrong Williams | September 07, 2005

President Bush has consistently said that he favors Justices who tend toward protecting state rights and restricting national power. Rightly so.

Kathleen Parker | September 07, 2005

In times of extreme stress, we often discover what we're made of.

Thomas Sowell | September 06, 2005

The physical devastation caused by hurricane Katrina has painfully revealed the moral devastation of our times that has led to mass looting in New Orleans, assaults on people in shelters, the raping of girls, and shots being fired at helicopters that are trying to rescue people.

Cal Thomas | September 06, 2005

Dwight Eisenhower came to regret the judicial activism of the chief justice he nominated. Ike called his choice of liberal California Republican Earl Warren "the biggest damn fool mistake" he ever made.

Suzanne Fields | September 06, 2005

The Labor Day weekend marks the official end of summer, usually offering a final burst of reflection, with the singing of the crickets of late August bathing consciousness in a sad symphony of vague melancholia.

Diana West | September 06, 2005

For the great mass of humanity, from the time of slavery to serfdom -- which takes in, what, the first 10,000 years -- a day without toil wasn't even a dream, let alone an expectation... let alone an employee 'benefit.'

Rebecca Hagelin | September 06, 2005

So how is that in fewer than 100 years we have digressed to a society where, when disaster strikes, the story is marked by a display of the worst side of human nature rather than the best?

Bill Murchison | September 06, 2005

Naturally, it was all the president's fault. Everything is George Bush's fault in a dazed and rancorous nation.

Jennifer Roback Morse | September 06, 2005

It is startling to realize that the looming battle for the Supreme Court hinges on whether nominees will pledge their support for the utterly irrational demand to suspend the law of cause and effect.

John McCaslin | September 06, 2005

News and insight from inside the beltway...

George Will | September 06, 2005

Holmes, advocating judicial restraint in the name of majoritarianism, said: 'If my fellow citizens want to go to Hell I'll help them. It's my job.'

Joel Mowbray | September 06, 2005

Not only did Hughes publicly endorse the Islamic Society of North America with her mere presence, but this was the first major public address in her new role spearheading outreach to the Muslim world.

Larry Kudlow | September 06, 2005

After more than twenty years of deregulation the U.S. economy is flexible and resilient -- even in the face of short-run shocks.

John Leo | September 06, 2005

On August 6, as her 15 minutes of fame was just beginning, Cindy Sheehan used an odd term in a TV interview with Mark Knoller of CBS.

Michael Barone | September 05, 2005

As I write, four days after the levees broke, the possessors of New Orleans are the waters and the looters and thugs who have been plundering luxury merchandise and shooting at policemen and rescue teams.

Star Parker | September 05, 2005

My cousins lived in New Orleans. They worked telemarketing jobs, earning minimum wage, while raising three children.

Caroline Glick | September 05, 2005

From the hills of Jerusalem and the ruins of Jewish Gaza, the dog-and-pony show being orchestrated by the bereaved mother and antiwar protester Cindy Sheehan couldn't seem more detached from reality or from the real challenges facing the Jewish state today.

Debra J. Saunders | September 05, 2005

It is only a matter of hours now that, after any catastrophe anywhere in the world -- a tsunami, a hurricane, a terrorist bombing on the London tube -- Bush haters find ways to blame President Bush.

Phyllis Schlafly | September 05, 2005

Gallant Americans are risking life and limb in Iraq to defend home and country. But they never dreamed they might lose their children, too.

Robert Novak | September 05, 2005

Sen. John McCain will take a small step this week toward making peace with the Republican Party on the tax issue.

Jack Kemp | September 05, 2005

We no longer have to imagine the death and destruction; We are seeing the unimaginable become tragic reality 24/7 on our TV screens.

Paul Jacob | September 04, 2005

For those obsessed with politics, hurricane Katrina proved just another opportunity to point fingers at old enemies and score cheap political points in the never-ending jostling for power.

George Will | September 04, 2005

New York Sen. Charles Schumer, a member of the Judiciary Committee and an author of the Democrats' catechism regarding constitutional reasoning, soon will be questioning John Roberts. Herewith some questions someone should ask Schumer:
