Dean Barnett | January 27, 2007

Enraged by the notion that some Republican Senators were going to support a resolution of non-support for the troop surge into Baghdad, members of the conservative blogosphere took action.

Robert Novak | January 27, 2007

Democratic strategists who had feared Sen. John McCain as the potentially unbeatable Republican candidate for president in 2008 were surprised and delighted by his dour appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" last Sunday.

Wayne Winegarden | January 27, 2007

Taking a cue from John Lennon, BusinessWeek is imagining “a world in which socially responsible and eco-friendly practices actually boost a company’s bottom line.”

Jeff Emanuel | January 27, 2007

Is success in Iraq "vital to America’s national security," as President Bush so often says? Fewer and fewer Americans think so, as the declining support for our activities there clearly shows. A major reason for this is the fact that the ongoing struggle in Iraq has become divorced from the larger War on Terror in the minds of many Americans.

Fri, Jan 26, 2007

Rich Lowry | January 26, 2007

It used to be that McCain's willingness to boldly follow his principles was considered the gold standard of selfless political principle. Now, the media portray the same boldness as primarily a drag on McCain's political ambition.

Mary Grabar | January 26, 2007

Much has been made of a recent New York Times article reporting that now a majority (51%) of women live alone. According to the Times, women are now living with their cats and lovin’ it!

Linda Chavez | January 26, 2007

Key Democrats have already announced that the president's plan to use the tax code to encourage more Americans to obtain health insurance is dead on arrival on Capitol Hill. They complain that this is just one more scheme to give tax breaks to people who don't need them, while continuing to deny essential health care to the most vulnerable.

Burt Prelutsky | January 26, 2007

Two recent news items grabbed my attention. The first of them dealt with a brouhaha occurring down in Katy, Texas. It seems that farmer Craig Baker decided to show his displeasure over the Katy Islamic Association buying up neighboring acreage and trying, he felt, to force him off his land for the purpose of building a Muslim school, mosque and community center.

Rich Galen | January 26, 2007

Republicans got here by losing their sense of purpose which led to losing control of the Congress.

Cliff May | January 26, 2007

You don't have to be a military strategist on the order of Sun Tzu or Carl von Clausewitz to understand this: It is a bad idea to fund your enemy's war effort. But every time we fill the tanks of our cars with gasoline we put money in the pockets of terrorists intent on killing Americans.

Roger Schlesinger | January 26, 2007

It's a new year and time to learn more about the mortgage industry. I am going to concentrate on areas where failure to know and failure to act can cost you money.

Mary Katharine Ham | January 26, 2007

The distance between the communities "defended" by environmentalists against development and the communities themselves is often large, both philosophically and literally.

Jonah Goldberg | January 26, 2007

"As I look at Iraq, I recall the words of former general and soon-to-be-President Dwight Eisenhower during the dark days of the Korean War, which had fallen into a bloody stalemate. 'When comes the end?' ... And as soon as he became president, he brought the Korean War to an end."

Mona Charen | January 26, 2007

So there it is, stark and unmistakable, the Democrats do not wish to win in Iraq and will do nothing to further the cause of victory.

Oliver North | January 26, 2007

The Marines and their families here at this sprawling base on the Carolina coast didn't have much to say about the president's State of the Union address. For many of them, his address the week before had been more important.

Diana West | January 26, 2007

I'm not convinced by the argument for sending 21,000 additional troops mainly to Baghdad, and I'm downright incensed at Senate Foreign Relations Committee voting along (Democratic) party lines (plus GOP Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska) to declare this same so-called troop surge to be against "the national interest."

Paul Greenberg | January 26, 2007

You could hear the slight weariness, the semi-artificial cheer, the hurry-slowly tempo in Tony Snow's voice. The president's always pressed-for-time-and-running-late spokesperson was conducting still another pre-State of the Union conference call Tuesday afternoon at about 3:30 Washington compressed time.

Rebecca Hagelin | January 26, 2007

It’s a question that has perplexed politicians, philosophers and philanthropists for generations: Why are some countries rich and others poor?

Charles Krauthammer | January 26, 2007

Is there anything more depressing than yet another promise of energy independence in yet another State of the Union address? By my count, 24 of the 34 State of the Union addresses since the oil embargo of 1973 have proposed solutions to our energy problem.

Lorie Byrd | January 26, 2007

Several months ago I asked what the Iraq war effort might look like today if those on the left and in the media had conducted themselves differently.

Kathleen Parker | January 26, 2007

To the relief of Democrats -- and the dismay of columnists -- John Kerry has decided that he won't be seeking the presidency after all.

David Limbaugh | January 26, 2007

Democrats have a new rock star, and I'm not talking about Barack Obama -- the most recent victim of the Clinton smear machine. I refer to Virginia senator James Webb.

Mike Adams | January 26, 2007

Sam was born just after the First World War, which meant that he would be old enough to serve in the Second World War. He did so bravely and had many stories to share when he returned.

Bill Steigerwald | January 26, 2007

Sam Staley, co-author with Ted Balaker of the book, “The Road More Traveled: Why the Congestion Crisis Matters More Than You Think, and What We Can Do About It,” is the director of urban and land-use policy at the Reason Foundation. His book offers real-world solutions to problems city-dwellers know far too much about from daily experience -- increasingly crowded, poorly designed and deteriorating highways.

Thu, Jan 25, 2007

Victor Davis Hanson | January 25, 2007

We hear all sorts of solutions for ending illegal immigration. Build a wall! Beef up border security! Fine employers, and create a massive guest-worker program.

David Strom | January 25, 2007

Are you afraid? Very afraid? Well, if you aren’t, you should be. And if you are, you aren’t scared enough.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | January 25, 2007

As Jimmy Carter’s dismal presidency drew to a close, his field of vision was narrowed to an embassy in Tehran. On Richard Nixon’s last day, all he could see was a tape recorder.

Betsy Hart | January 25, 2007

Maybe I'm a cynic. But every once in a while I see a news story and I wonder if it's for real. And so it was when I recently read on a story by Sheila Marikar headlined "Some Say It's OK for Girls to Go Wild."

Rich Tucker | January 25, 2007

It’s a story that could be ripped from today’s headlines. An unpopular president commits American forces to a dangerous mission. If things go well, millions will probably see him as a hero. But if they go poorly, his political career is over. Oh, and he may well trigger a new war.

Ross Mackenzie | January 25, 2007

A potpourri of quotes generally on topics currently in the news:

Debra J. Saunders | January 25, 2007

In 2005, only one-third of California voters approved of the governor. In 2006, Schwarzenegger handily won re-election and a majority of voter approval.

Larry Elder | January 25, 2007

CBS news anchor Katie Couric, invited to a briefing at the White House, complained about being the only journalist in attendance "wearing a skirt."

Cal Thomas | January 25, 2007

So much of what President Bush said in his State of the Union address ought to have been said and done when Republicans held a congressional majority. That especially applies to his call for a "special advisory council on the war on terror, made up of leaders in Congress from both political parties."

Ben Shapiro | January 25, 2007

If President Bush's speech was unexciting, Sen. Jim Webb's, D-Virginia, purported rebuttal was disastrous.

Matt Towery | January 25, 2007

Most frustrating to me is that this is a repeat of a decades-old pattern of Newt's. He's prone to thinking those he surrounds himself with are infallible.

Donald Lambro | January 25, 2007

President Bush and the Republicans aren't the only political casualties of America's deepening disapproval of the Iraq war. Sen. Hillary Clinton also risks being caught in the crossfire of her party's divisions over the battle for Baghdad.

Alan Reynolds | January 25, 2007

Since President Bush's State of the Union Address quickly garnered a generous share of criticism, it seems more useful to take a look at the economic comments offered in rebuttal by Virginia's new Democratic senator, Jim Webb.

Robert Novak | January 25, 2007

When President Bush in his State of the Union address Tuesday night called for a bipartisan "special advisory council" of congressional leaders on the war against terrorism, he had in his pocket a rude rejection from Democratic leaders.

Marvin Olasky | January 25, 2007

Democrats used to oppose dictators, but now many of their leaders lean toward appeasing inhumane, unrestrained seekers of world conquest?

George Will | January 25, 2007

Recently, as an airliner taxied up to a gate, a flight attendant made the usual announcement -- thank you for flying with us -- but with an unusual coda: "We know you have your choice of bankrupt airlines." Which raises a question: What is wrong with American Airlines?

Hugh Hewitt | January 25, 2007

Less than a month into the new Congress, the Senate Republicans face another crucial moment, one that will reverberate long into 2008.

Steve Chapman | January 25, 2007

Americans have a love-hate relationship with oil. We depend on it to fuel our cars, trucks and SUVs, which we cherish, but it causes us periodic pangs of guilt.

Emmett Tyrrell | January 25, 2007

I guess 3,500 classified documents would be too many to stuff into your clothing if you were a high-ranking government official and wanted to take them home for leisure reading.

Wed, Jan 24, 2007

Ann Coulter | January 24, 2007

Girl-power feminists who got where they are by marrying men with money or power -- Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Arianna Huffington and John Kerry -- love to complain about how hard it is for a woman to be taken seriously. It has nothing to do with their being women. It has to do with their cheap paths to power. Kevin Federline isn't taken seriously either.

Pat Buchanan | January 24, 2007

Churchillian it was not. Yet the State of the Union seemed a success if Bush's purpose was to buy time from Congress to wait and see if his surge of U.S. forces into Iraq might yet succeed.

James J. Kilpatrick | January 24, 2007

Justice Clarence Thomas stayed mum, as usual, but all eight of his colleagues got into the act two weeks ago when the Supreme Court heard argument in the case of a teachers union.

Michael Reagan | January 24, 2007

I haven’t any real idea of what Shawn Hornbeck was forced to endure during his four-and-a-half years as a captive of an obviously deranged child abuser, but I know exactly what he’s going through now at the hands of his parents.

Gregory Koukl | January 24, 2007

The pro-choice enterprise in any of its forms is doomed to fail morally because it ultimately reduces human value to functional terms.

Henry Edmondson | January 24, 2007

During a visit throughout the cities and countryside, and after conversations with university specialists and Tuscan housewives, I’ve been inclined to make comparisons over education.

Janice Shaw Crouse | January 24, 2007

President Bush faced a chamber far more chilly and partisan than he faced in previous State of the Union addresses when his party was in power.

Roger Schlesinger | January 24, 2007

From the stock market's biggest investor to the newlyweds who are hoping to buy their first home, everyone is wondering what the economy, interest rates and employment opportunities are going to be like this year.

Michael Medved | January 24, 2007

Anthropologist Margaret Mead, a popular professor during my years at Yale in the late 1960’s, frequently challenged students with her famous formulation that “the biggest problem for any society is to try to decide what on earth to do with its men.”

Jennifer Roback Morse | January 24, 2007

A childless legislator here in California (where else?) has proposed a legislative ban on spanking. Sally Lieber, Democrat (naturally) from Mountain View, which is in Northern California (why am I not surprised?) believes this is a proper function of state government.

Michelle Malkin | January 24, 2007

Last month, President Bush signed off on a few dog-and-pony illegal immigrant employment raids. Whoop-de-doo.

John Stossel | January 24, 2007

A "Day of National Debate" about Friedman's work will be held at universities, and free-market think tanks throughout America will hold events.

Walter E. Williams | January 24, 2007

Political commentator Henry Louis Mencken (1880-1956) warned that "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed -- and hence clamorous to be led to safety -- by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary." The Weather Channel has taken up that task with its series "It Could Happen Tomorrow."

Brent Bozell | January 24, 2007

The "historic" Democratic presidential primaries of 2008 are kicking in already, and the online announcements of Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have spun the media into a frothy sweet frappucino of giddiness.

Jonah Goldberg | January 24, 2007

In her first appearance as a presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton spoke at a community center while holding the hand of small child. Nancy Pelosi has said that when she took the Speaker's gavel, she took it "from the hands of the special interests and (put it) into the hands of America's children." Sen. Barbara Boxer recently belittled Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice because Rice doesn't have children and therefore cannot appreciate the full impact of war the way Boxer can.

Tony Blankley | January 24, 2007

Last weekend, Hillary Rodham Clinton presented herself for election to the presidency of the United States with the timeless, clarion call:

Suzanne Fields | January 24, 2007

More than a decade ago I floated a book proposal with the title "Women Without Men," an ironic reference to Ernest Hemingway's "Men Without Women."

Debra J. Saunders | January 24, 2007

If you wonder why Sacramento can't balance a budget, see what happens when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger exercises a modicum of fiscal discipline in his proposed $143 billion state budget.

Terry Jeffrey | January 24, 2007

The initial hours of this year's edition of Fox's blockbuster series "24" focused on a group of "Islamic militants" who detonate a small nuclear bomb in Southern California.

Austin Bay | January 24, 2007

After 16 years of war and peacekeeping, the Great Yugoslav War of Devolution has entered a new, promising phase. But don't call it finished, and don't call it peace -- at least not quite yet.

Paul Greenberg | January 24, 2007

The voice on the answering machine was that of my favorite cousin — a sweet, always assuring voice I’d known since earliest childhood. It was just as slow and Southern as ever but this time you could hear the strain and hesitation in it, not just the always present consideration.

Paul Weyrich | January 24, 2007

We are in the midst of a new space race. This race, unlike the last, is one that usually is ignored - or derided - by the news media. Unlike the last, this one is deadly serious.

Kathleen Parker | January 24, 2007

Critiquing American culture is tricky for people in the family newspaper business, especially this week as two controversial movies open at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

Hugh Hewitt | January 24, 2007

First principles plus the resolve to defend them are the mark of great presidents, and it has always been so in the history of the country.

Mike Adams | January 24, 2007

The man and his wife were married while they were still in school and had a little boy before they graduated. The second child was born several years later. They had a very good life with in-laws taking the two-hour drive to visit the grandchildren from time to time.

Michael McBride | January 24, 2007

I suppose I come from what’s left of America’s warrior class. Not the 'noblesse oblige' style warrior of the Civil War or World War II, but a working class stock of martial warrior who serves for a sense of individual purpose, and who coincidentally comes from a line of previous warriors.

David Limbaugh | January 24, 2007

Beware of liberals using such words as "fairness." In resurrecting the "Fairness Doctrine," liberals are trying to kill conservative talk radio and restore their media monopoly. Period.

Tue, Jan 23, 2007

Maggie Gallagher | January 23, 2007

Eureka! Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has the solution: "The 50 Percent Solution." Schumer is credited, as much as any other man, with putting into place the strategy that regained Democrats control of both houses of Congress.

William F. Buckley | January 23, 2007

The round number is now $500 million. Five hundred million dollars is what each major party's presidential nominee is expected to spend between now and Nov. 4, 2008.

Ken Blackwell | January 23, 2007

Although Los Angeles Dodgers’ center fielder Willie Davis was widely considered the fastest man in baseball throughout the 1960s and 70s, he is perhaps more often remembered for a remark he made following game two of the 1966 World Series against the Baltimore Orioles. Even more important than his amazing speed, Davis had extraordinary perspective.

Michael Medved | January 23, 2007

Maybe it's not "The Most Important Speech of His Presidency" -- according to conventional wisdom, that would have been his recent announcement of a "new direction" in Iraq -- but the upcoming State of the Union address still presents a hugely significant opportunity for President Bush.

Ed Feulner | January 23, 2007

When historians sit down to write about the recently departed 109th Congress, one fact is likely to stand out: The supposedly conservative majority spent as if it was a liberal majority.

Patrick Hynes | January 23, 2007

Sen. McCain has a lot of relationship building to do with bloggers. Some will be unwilling to hear him out. Others will be willing to hear him out but will remain unpersuaded. And some, in time, may come around. Rest assured, we are reaching out to bloggers in an aggressive way

Rich Lowry | January 23, 2007

When Hillary Clinton announced her presidential exploratory committee while sitting on a couch in her living room, she didn't project warmth so much as a sense that she was desperately trying to project warmth

Janet M. LaRue | January 23, 2007

"There's Emerald City! Oh, we're almost there at last! At last! It's beautiful, isn't it? Just like I knew it would be! He really must be a wonderful wizard to live in a city like that!" But as all who've seen The Wizard of Oz know, Dorothy's initial opinion was wrong.

Chuck Colson | January 23, 2007

During the thirty-fourth anniversary of Roe v. Wade, you heard a great deal about the victims of abortion. That phrase—for obvious reasons—nearly always referred to the tens of millions of unborn children who have been killed as the result of Roe.

Caroline Glick | January 23, 2007

Israel prides itself on being the only democracy in the Middle East. But if we are not careful, we will lose that distinction.

Thomas Sowell | January 23, 2007

In an era when our media and even our education system exalt emotions, while ignoring facts and logic, perhaps we should not be surprised that so many people explain economics by "greed."

David Limbaugh | January 23, 2007

Democrat senators Joseph Biden and Carl Levin appeared on "Fox News Sunday" to promote their toothless resolution against the president's troop "surge" in Iraq, but ended up unwittingly reinforcing their party's image as lacking the requisite seriousness to run the war.

Cal Thomas | January 23, 2007

Fund-raisers on the left and right are salivating now that Sen. Hillary Clinton has declared, "I'm in" the 2008 presidential race. On the left, feminists will likely hail her as the reincarnation of suffragette Susan B. Anthony. On the right, conservatives will portray her as a cross between Lady Macbeth and Bonnie Parker.

Dennis Prager | January 23, 2007

From 9-11 to this day, callers to my syndicated radio show have asked: "Is Islam a religion of violence?" And since 9-11, I have given the same response: "I don't judge religions; I judge practitioners."

Pat Buchanan | January 23, 2007

After a weekend in which 29 Americans died and the 82nd Airborne deployed in Baghdad, what the Iraq war will mean to the politics of 2008 becomes clear.

Phyllis Schlafly | January 23, 2007

The problems with public schools - low scores and lack of discipline - are bad and not improving. Therefore, we need the federal government to take the management of schools away from school boards, and we need state taxpayers to take the funding of schools away from local jurisdictions.

Bill Murchison | January 23, 2007

Hillary and Barack have the media lobbing into our midst a question of great intensity.

Lynn O'Shaughnessy | January 23, 2007

About a year ago, Smith Barney, the brokerage giant, announced that it would start calling its stockbrokers "financial advisers." Most Smith Barney clients, if they heard this pronouncement, probably greeted it with some variation of "duh." These investors already assume that the brokers, who handle their accounts, are advisers.

James J. Kilpatrick | January 23, 2007

Yes, it is true that every standard dictionary informs us that "since" may be employed in the sense of "because." I beg you, fergit it!

Mon, Jan 22, 2007

William F. Buckley | January 22, 2007

In August, President Bush approved a new U.S. policy on space exploration and on the military and commercial uses of space. The White House announced that the United States would not agree to any arrangements that would restrict our own ventures into space.

Jack Kemp | January 22, 2007

Attempts to pass nonbinding resolutions as so-called messages to the president will end up sending a clear message to the insurgents in Iraq, Iranian radicals and al-Qaida

Gary McCaleb | January 22, 2007

>“Early in life,” the architect Frank Lloyd Wright once said, “I had to choose between arrogance and hypocritical humility. I chose honest arrogance and have seen no occasion to change.”

Frank Gaffney | January 22, 2007

Tonight’s [Tuesday’s] State of the Union address should be unlike any in recent memory. Not because George W. Bush turns it into the expected paean to bipartisanship, or abases himself before his newly ensconced opposition. Rather, it should stand apart because the President uses the occasion to speak unvarnished truth to power.

Rich Galen | January 22, 2007

Talk about a big Presidential Election weekend: Hillary got in. NM Governor Bill Richardson got in. Kansas Senator Sam Brownback got in. Newt and Biden were on Fox News Sunday. McCain was on Meet the Press.

Herman Cain | January 22, 2007

The next president of the United States of America may not be what we need. We need a real leader who will bring real solutions to the challenges facing our economic infrastructure and national security.

Roger Schlesinger | January 22, 2007

Everyone wants to know how to handle their finances and whether or not there is a pat answer.

Hugh Hewitt | January 22, 2007

When the column assignment arrived mid-morning --"Is the TV show "24" going too far by depicting a nuclear attack in Los Angeles in its opening episode?"-- the drama went out of tonight's two-hour program. Or so I thought. As zero hour approached, I found myself assuming that the program really wouldn't actually depict a nuclear detonation near Los Angeles.

Dinesh D'Souza | January 22, 2007

As I debate the topics covered in my new book The Enemy at Home: The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility for 9/11 I find myself arguing with a whole bunch of people on the left who “know” things that aren’t true.

Michael Barone | January 22, 2007

The single most glaring defect in our mostly admirable political system is the presidential selection process.

Suzanne Fields | January 22, 2007

When Sacha Baron Cohen, now famous everywhere as Borat, collected his Golden Globe last week as the best actor in a comedy, Jews everywhere asked each other a familiar question: "But is it good for the Jews?"

Paul Greenberg | January 22, 2007

It was wholly a pleasure to receive your thoughtful inquiry in response to my opinion - it might even be called my obsession - about the danger of judges taking part in political debate. Judges can be sly about it: Some take political stands while claiming to be only discussing the general philosophy of the law.

Donald Lambro | January 22, 2007

Many, if not most, laws passed by Congress have had unintended, negative consequences, and raising the minimum wage has been one of them.

Robert Novak | January 22, 2007

The student loan bill is one of the politically popular measures rushed through opening days of the first Democratic-controlled House session in 12 years. While Democratic support has been unanimous, Republicans are divided and listless.

Armstrong Williams | January 22, 2007

I strongly supported President Bush when he declared war on Iraq and sought regime change there once and for all. I adamantly defended President Bush when he outlined his post-Saddam Hussein plan to stabilize Iraq and rebuild it as a free and democratic country. I staunchly backed our President when he asked the country for patience and Congress for more money to win the war. But after last week’s speech in which he laid out plans to send in another 21,500 US troops to Baghdad, my support stopped.

Star Parker | January 22, 2007

The dome of the Capitol building will be gleaming as the sun rises over Washington today...

Burt Prelutsky | January 22, 2007

Whenever I start thinking about all the damage that’s been done to America by the social engineering Socialists, I have to remind myself that some of my best friends are left-wingers.

Joel Mowbray | January 22, 2007

In what could be either a major turning point or just an aberration, Sen. Barbara Boxer recently rescinded an award given to a California resident because of his position with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | January 22, 2007

Like a man returning to smoking, our generation has once again gotten hooked on cheap labor. Unfortunately, we are forgetting that this kind of labor may be dangerous to our national health.

Some of you may be surprised that, since December, police officers have arrested and charged 11 men with public indecency in the Atlanta airport.

Carol Platt Liebau | January 22, 2007

The well-rehearsed rationales for the rank-and-file to line up behind McCain – focusing on his appeal to independents – may be coming apart at the seams.

Too many fans clearly believe that the high ticket prices entitle them to bellowing tirades that would make your grandmother faint.

I just happen to believe that California cops have their hands full dealing with adults who beat, torture or otherwise abuse children.

Mary Grabar | January 21, 2007

Rather, the philosopher-king is the reluctant ruler, motivated not by ego or personal gain. His motivation is the love of wisdom and justice. These ideas, indeed, form the basis for our republican form of government, in contrast to a popular democracy ruled by the masses.

George Will | January 21, 2007

Barney Frank, the 14-term Massachusetts congressman who chairs the Financial Services Committee, says it might be useful to "make it a misdemeanor to use metaphors in the discussion of public policy," such as "a rising tide lifts all boats."

One ugly veggie/fruit/berry finally breaks free . . . but others are still held in thrall by the Florida Tomato Commission.

Frank Pastore | January 21, 2007

A few weeks ago, remember how we were all a buzz about Keith Ellison (D-MN) choosing to make his oath on the Koran as the first democratically-elected Muslim to sit in Congress? We all agreed it would be unconstitutional to prevent him from doing so. Yet, something was deeply troubling about it even though we couldn’t quite put our finger on it.

Kevin McCullough | January 21, 2007

All one needs to know about CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) is that when they have the opportunity to defend America to terrorists they always fail.

John Andrews | January 21, 2007

It was not for this, an urban hell where murder is the leading cause of death among young black men, that the great hero of liberty and equality risked and sacrificed.

Jon Sanders | January 21, 2007

Tonight, in Durham, 87 college professors and instructors are hurting. The outside world has misunderstood them. Goodness, they didn't mean to claim the lacrosse players were guilty of gang rape.
