Doug Giles | March 17, 2007

KSM has claimed responsibility for masterminding the deaths of several thousand people and had tens of thousands of others marked for mayhem had not Bush and his boys busted the bastard. But then again, this all could be a scam cooked up by the Bush administration.

Nathan Tabor | March 17, 2007

If Americans want positive change, they should look to someone other than the political media darlings. They should look to Duncan Hunter. (Full disclosure: I’ve recently begun consulting with Hunter for his internet campaign.)

James J. Kilpatrick | March 17, 2007

If the English language were not so maddening, it wouldn't be nearly so much fun -- but maddening it often is, and we're talking subtleties today.

The wholesale migration of Democratic African-Americans voters towards Barack Obama and away from Hillary Clinton accelerated this week and began to reach epic proportions. Hillary has now gone from a 3:1 lead among blacks to an 11 point lead to a dead even 36-36 tie, all in the wake of her criticism of Obama.

Michael McBride | March 17, 2007

The kooky domestic terrorists at the Animal Liberation Front have struck again, this time in animal friendly Portland, Oregon.

Tom Borelli | March 17, 2007

As NCAA college basketball fans celebrate “March Madness”, another lesser-known form of madness is transpiring in Texas with the acquisition of the electric utility TXU.

Phil Harris | March 17, 2007

It is important to remember, that the term Fetus does not describe some "thing" which is not human. It is a term, coined by medical science, which conveniently refers to a specific period during the growth of a human child. Keep that in mind as you read the story of Gianna Jessen.

Robert Novak | March 17, 2007

Actor-politician Fred Thompson's unexpected expression of interest in seeking the Republican presidential nomination has attracted an equally unexpected favorable reaction, especially among social conservatives.

Patrick Hynes | March 17, 2007

Sen. Hillary Clinton tested her new campaign theme—that there really is a “vast rightwing conspiracy”—at the “100 Club” dinner in Nashua, NH last week

Patrick Ruffini | March 17, 2007

Time magazine has chosen a weeping (and Photoshopped) Ronald Reagan for its first redesigned cover in 15 years. The theme: "How the Right Went Wrong."

Kathryn Lopez | March 17, 2007

Even though 2008 has long seemed like a done deal in terms of who's in the running for presidential nominations, there's a growing buzz about two Tinseltown candidates: Fred Thompson and Al Gore.

Fri, Mar 16, 2007

Ed Feulner | March 16, 2007

But if our leaders really were listening, we'd see lawmakers stampeding to enact the conservative policies the American people repeatedly say they want.

Michael Franc | March 16, 2007

Five years after its passage, the frustration with NCLB has grown and spans the ideological spectrum. In 2006, according to the White House Office of Management and Budget, state and local education bureaucrats spent 6.7 million hours and more than $140 million complying with NCLB paperwork.

Jon Sanders | March 16, 2007

The Associated Press reported this week that an Oakland, Calif., nonprofit called "Exhale" is offering "a series of electronic greeting cards that concerned friends and relatives can send to a woman after she chooses to have an abortion." For example, one card tells the woman she "did the right thing." Another "expresses sympathy, offering the gentle reminder that, 'As you grieve, remember you are loved.'"

Gregory Koukl | March 16, 2007

Gen. Peter Pace was vehemently denounced and condemned earlier this week for expressing a personal moral judgment that homosexuality is immoral. The criticisms excoriated Pace for making a value judgment, while implying that the denunciations themselves were morally neutral. In reality, Pace’s critics expressed a moral judgment, too.

Diana West | March 16, 2007

Without attracting much attention, representatives of the Belgian political party Vlaams Belang recently visited Washington, D.C. Frank Vanhecke and Filip Dewinter hoped to meet members of Congress; but Congress was in recess.

James J. Kilpatrick | March 16, 2007

Late on the night of March 19, 2004, Earl Eckelberry was driving along Route 50-E near Parkersburg, W.Va. His car left the highway and crashed into an illegally parked tractor-trailer. He died in the wreckage.

Rich Lowry | March 16, 2007

"What do I need to do? What can we do to end this?” That was Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’s plaint a couple of weeks ago as the controversy about the U.S. attorney scandal began to run out of control.

Rich Galen | March 16, 2007

There are about 93 US Attorneys. As you know, eight of them were fired. Why they were fired is a matter for discussion. Whether they could be fired is not.

Mike Gallagher | March 16, 2007

To read today’s papers, all the political controversies in our nation’s history combined don’t add up to the earthquake of a scandal that is rocking our world: the Bush Administration was involved in the firing of eight U.S. attorneys.

Lorie Byrd | March 16, 2007

Last week watching the coverage of the Libby verdict I wondered how it was possible for so many in the media to completely ignore Joe Wilson’s credibility problems in their reporting.

Burt Prelutsky | March 16, 2007

Fitting the terrorist profile as I do -- being a bald 67-year-old American male -- it made perfect sense that they’d want to separate me from those potentially lethal toiletries.

Chuck Colson | March 16, 2007

Our nation’s top military officer, a veteran decorated with no less than forty-eight military awards and a very distinguished career, made a startling revelation this week: He has moral conviction.

Rich Tucker | March 16, 2007

Times Square isn’t what it used to be. That’s a good thing for New Yorkers, and it may be a great thing for Rudy Giuliani’s presidential hopes.

Linda Chavez | March 16, 2007

The Bush administration has a knack for shooting itself in the foot, or in the most recent example, the head.

Mike Adams | March 16, 2007

Kent State University now has another problem on its hands. A member of the Ku Klux Klan who just recently was found operating a hate website ( has now been identified as a history professor at Kent State.

David Limbaugh | March 16, 2007

Marine Gen. Peter Pace has violated a cardinal rule of our politically correct culture: stating his opinion that homosexual behavior is immoral.

Mona Charen | March 16, 2007

I first heard of Ayaan Hirsi Ali when they pulled the knife from Theo van Gogh's chest in November of 2004.

Kathleen Parker | March 16, 2007

As presidential candidates try to stake out an electable position on the war in Iraq, Americans are justified in wondering: Is it reality, or is it just politics?

Charles Krauthammer | March 16, 2007

"What is wrong with Dick Cheney?" asks Michelle Cottle in the inaugural issue of the newly relaunched New Republic. She then spends the next 2,000 words marshaling evidence suggesting that his cardiac disease has left him demented and mentally disordered.

John Hawkins | March 16, 2007

We might as well change the Republican Party symbol from an elephant to a punching bag because the Republican wimps in DC just refuse to fight back. The base may have no qualms about going after liberals, but when we look for Republican pols on the Hill to show some leadership in this area, we're almost always sadly disappointed.

Oliver North | March 16, 2007

As one might expect in a communist country where they take red tape very seriously, my producers spent weeks before our trip filling out forms, questionnaires and documents required by numerous government bureaucracies.

Rebecca Hagelin | March 16, 2007

Anticipation was high. The black-tie crowd had just finished a wonderful meal and enjoyed several moving presentations. The evening’s keynote speaker and top honoree was approaching the podium. But before he could utter a word, Sen. Ted Kennedy rose from a table in the front of the room and exited. His silent, rude snub was plainly intended to send the honoree a message: Your work and values are invalid.

Bill Steigerwald | March 16, 2007

Neal Boortz, the politically incorrect, truth-talking talk-show host out of Atlanta, is carried in nearly 200 radio markets from liberal coast to liberal coast. A libertarian who believes drugs and prostitution should be legal, he also says things like government schools are “the most rampant form of child abuse in this country” and “religion is all-too-often a refuge for scoundrels.”

Thu, Mar 15, 2007

Debra J. Saunders | March 15, 2007

Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Peter Pace defended the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy by explaining that he was brought up to believe that "homosexual acts between individuals are immoral" in an editorial board meeting with the Chicago Tribune.

Paul Weyrich | March 15, 2007

Since the invasion of Iraq nearly four years ago promises made to our military men and women have been broken so many times that I have lost count.

The big problem in finding a conservative challenger to run for the GOP nomination is not the absence of a genuine constituency, nor is it even enthusiasm for ex-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Right-wingers who would pass the litmus test — guys like former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback, Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo, California Rep. Duncan Hunter, former Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson, or even ex-Tennessee Sen. and famous actor Fred Thompson — face the need to climb over the political corpses of former Speaker New Gingrich (Ga.) and ex-Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney to make their case.

Joe Scarborough | March 15, 2007

If you believe the media and the cry-baby left, the entire world hates the United States of America. I don’t believe that. The reality of it is they don't hate us; they just love our money and wish they could get their hands on more of it. That's all the rest of the world ever cared about.

Ross Mackenzie | March 15, 2007

Arrived early afternoon. Snow dumped 2 feet during the preceding week. Mercury plunged that night to 10 below, where it sat for much of the week.

Megan Basham | March 15, 2007

After bringing in more than $70 million in its opening weekend, comic book adaptation 300 made history as the highest grossing film debut for the month of March and the third highest opening for an R-rated movie (after The Passion of the Christ and The Matrix Reloaded). Without a single recognizable star among its cast and a fraction of the production budget, it also far outperformed the opening tallies of predecessors like Troy and Gladiator.

Jeff Emanuel | March 15, 2007

As the Iraq war (and the debate surrounding it) has raged on in the years since, the Left has been trying harder and harder to claim the moral high ground with regard to the treatment and use of US troops, both by championing the few it can find who oppose the War on Terror, and by attempting to marginalize those who dare speak out against them.

William F. Buckley | March 15, 2007

It is the crowning paradox in the war of the insurgents that there is so little criticism of their activity by the people they kill, or try to kill.

Cliff May | March 15, 2007

Lewis Libby’s lawyers are quietly filing appeals while President Bush privately ponders arguments for and against a pardon. But now is not the time for this controversy to fade away.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 15, 2007

It reminded the citizenry of the heavy-handed politics of Sen. Clinton's past. An undercurrent of unease seeped into press coverage of the controversy. Journalists and Democratic politicians seemed to sense that once again Clintonistas had gone too far.

Michael McBride | March 15, 2007

While the over-staged drama of Congressional hearings will continue to dominate the Walter Reed story for weeks to come, there are some real cautions for our Congress and media before they jump in and help the military “solve” the problems at Walter Reed.

Steve Chapman | March 15, 2007

The uproar over the firing of eight U.S. attorneys may be a case where Gonzales actually had sound reasons, rather than unsavory political motives, for doing what he did. Someone who has consistently been a pliable administration functionary, though, can hardly expect the benefit of the doubt when scandal erupts.

John Cornyn | March 15, 2007

One of the Bush Administration’s landmark legislative achievements, the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), recently observed its fifth birthday. The law expires and must be renewed by 2008.

Thomas Sowell | March 15, 2007

Britain's Channel 4 has produced a devastating documentary titled "The Great Global Warming Swindle." It has apparently not been broadcast by any of the networks in the United States. But, fortunately, it is available on the Internet.

Larry Elder | March 15, 2007

Policy-makers face immediate, predictable and foreseeable -- and especially in the case of Iran -- serious around-the-corner issues. Yet we divert time, money and energy fretting about hypothetical "calamities" of global warming rather than dealing with real world/real time threats.

Cal Thomas | March 15, 2007

Congress will soon decide whether to renew President Bush's signature education program "No Child Left Behind" (NCLB), the goal of which is to bring every public school student to grade level in reading and math by 2014.

Pat Buchanan | March 15, 2007

Before an editorial board of the Chicago Tribune, Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, not only endorsed presidential policy by which active homosexuals are discharged from the service, he declared that policy to be right morally.

Suzanne Fields | March 15, 2007

William Shakespeare makes it to the attention of Washington's chattering class only a little more often than Harold Stassen. But tonight at the Kennedy Center, an associate justice of the United States Supreme Court will preside over the trial of Hamlet.

Matt Towery | March 15, 2007

The president, for so long cocky and defiant, has apparently come to the painful realization that with friends and political associates like his, who needs enemies?

Paul Greenberg | March 15, 2007

What's this - are the Americans still determined to win in Iraq? How unsettling that possibility must be for Sunni insurgents, Shi'ite zealots, al-Qaida killers and any armed Baathists still lurking about.

Donald Lambro | March 15, 2007

The "it" is Sen. Hillary Clinton's questionable electability and whether Democrats will end up picking someone else next year -- someone much less polarizing -- to be their presidential nominee.

Alan Reynolds | March 15, 2007

New York Sen. Chuck Schumer and a half-dozen freshman legislators, reports the Los Angeles Times, "want to add tax credits and deductions to benefit narrow groups of largely middle-class constituents.

George Will | March 15, 2007

With scant thought given to the national interest, particular states pursuing what they fancy is in their interest are propelling the nation into a delegate-selection process so compressed that it will resemble a national primary. These states may exacerbate what they consider a problem -- the importance of early voting in small states.

Robert Novak | March 15, 2007

Newt Gingrich's attempted phoenix-like rise from his own political ashes to a presidential candidacy next week will run into a harsh assessment by his former House Republican colleague, Tom DeLay.

Marvin Olasky | March 15, 2007

"Grey's Anatomy's" lead character, Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), normally has first and last words on the show -- and many of her comments seem almost biblical in their analysis of human failing.

Ken Blackwell | March 15, 2007

Conservatives must wake up each morning ready to do battle with a "secular left" who believe the American people have an impractical value system.

Wed, Mar 14, 2007

Roger Schlesinger | March 14, 2007

I watch, read and listen to the pundits who have unofficially announced that the sub-prime mortgage market is dead or at least D.O.A. and I wonder if they have anything better to do during the day then make ridiculous statements.

Ann Coulter | March 14, 2007

The problems at Walter Reed are further proof of the Democrats' failed domestic policies -- to wit, the civil service rules that prevent government employees from ever being fired.

Michelle Malkin | March 14, 2007

The New York Times prides itself on ethical journalism. The company boasts a 57-page "handbook of values and practices" for its newsroom. "Our greatest strength," the paper intones, "is the authority and reputation of the Times."

Michael Medved | March 14, 2007

Do we need to reconsider our approach to some of the key controversies of the day in order to recapture majority support? And how do we resolve some of the apparent conservative contradictions?

John Stossel | March 14, 2007

Whenever someone is hurt in an accident, people say, "There ought to be a law!" Politicians rush to oblige them and then take credit for all the lives they saved.

John McCaslin | March 14, 2007

The exact amount unfortunately will never be known, but the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) dished out anywhere from $600 million to $1.4 billion in "improper and potentially fraudulent payments" to applicants who used false information when applying for expedited cash assistance after Hurricane Katrina.

Rich Galen | March 14, 2007

Last night I was invited to attend the Intel Science Talent Search award banquet at the Ronald Reagan building in downtown Washington, DC.

Mike Adams | March 14, 2007

I’ve been thinking about Ann Coulter a lot lately – a real shocker, I know - and I think I’ve finally found a way to get her out of the hot water she’s in over her recent outing of John Edwards.

Walter E. Williams | March 14, 2007

The cost to nonsmokers to impose their will on smokers, say, in a restaurant, bar or airplane, is zero, or close to it. They just have to get the legislature to do their bidding.

Jonah Goldberg | March 14, 2007

It has become a central ritual of our times for Beltway priests like the Washington Post's David Broder to lament the coarseness, acidity and all-around ickiness of our polarized political culture. They're not absolutely wrong. All I need to do to appreciate the toxicity of the political culture is check my e-mail each morning.

Terry Jeffrey | March 14, 2007

In the four decades since the Selma march, many liberals have abandoned the belief that a just law is a law that is consistent with God's law.

Paul Weyrich | March 14, 2007

When all participants, including non-paying students, reporters, speakers and merchants were clocked in, the ACU says some 6,500 folks graced their doors. That is extraordinary. It shows that conservatives were looking for direction. I'm not sure that they received it.

Kathleen Parker | March 14, 2007

Sharpton told CBS News that he is withholding his endorsement until after his National Action Network summit next month. Meanwhile, he's playing hard to get between the Obama and Hillary Clinton camps, even declining to return calls from Obama's campaign.

Thomas Sowell | March 14, 2007

The enthusiastic reception given to a speech by Newt Gingrich at a recent meeting of the Conservative Political Action Committee has revived speculation that he may enter the presidential nomination race, after all.

Ben Shapiro | March 14, 2007

The movie has many weaknesses, but its strength lies in its affirmation that there can be good, there can be evil, and that good must be willing to withstand evil's best efforts to annihilate it.

Tony Blankley | March 14, 2007

In the last week two news items caught my attention. News Item No. 1: dateline Abu Dhabi -- The Louvre Museum is selling the use of its name for a museum in Abu Dhabi for $520 million

Jacob Sullum | March 14, 2007

Last week, when a federal appeals court ruled that the District of Columbia's gun ban violates the right to "keep and bear arms," The New York Times reported that the judges were "interpreting the Second Amendment broadly."

Tue, Mar 13, 2007

Roger Schlesinger | March 13, 2007

Something as easy as how to pay your mortgage should be a one paragraph column, but it isn't.

Debra J. Saunders | March 13, 2007

Thanks to the 2003 gubernatorial recall and the 2005 special election, there has been at least one statewide election in California every year since 2002. Before the special election, wags were agog about "voter fatigue."

Rich Lowry | March 13, 2007

Rudy Giuliani has made a strategic choice in the Republican primary contest. He will stay pro-choice on the issue of abortion, and thus avoid the flip-flopper label that has so harmed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Rich Lowry | March 13, 2007

The jarring spectacle of jurors expressing support for, or at least indifference toward, an executive act to wipe away the conviction that they just handed down is a damning statement about Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald.

Bruce Bartlett | March 13, 2007

While conservatives still believe that the major media are biased against them, one hears more and more criticism coming from the left. Indeed, judging by what one reads on the left-wing blogs, there are many liberals out there who truly believe that the major media now have a conservative bias.

Thomas Sowell | March 13, 2007

Parading casualties is called "honoring our troops." But what does it mean to honor someone? When we gather at a memorial service to honor someone in death or at a ceremony to award prizes to them while they are alive, what do we do?

Karin Agness | March 13, 2007

Based on the benign title, Women and Gender Studies, it would be easy at first to mistake these bastions of feminism as unbiased intellectually honest academic departments.

David Limbaugh | March 13, 2007

Newscasters and pundits keep talking about the dilemma the Democrats are facing in legislatively opposing President Bush's troop surge.

Cal Thomas | March 13, 2007

That substantial numbers of conservative evangelical voters are even considering these candidates as presidential prospects is a sign of their political maturation and of their more pragmatic view of what can be expected from politics and politicians.

Dennis Prager | March 13, 2007

In the view of John Edwards and other Christians on the Left, Jesus would raise taxes, promote single-payer, i.e., socialized, medicine, be pro-choice and advocate same-sex marriage.

Pat Buchanan | March 13, 2007

In the calendar of the Revolution, Thermidor was the second month of summer. On 9 Thermidor (July 27, 1794), Robespierre was guillotined and the Reign of Terror came to an end.

Austin Bay | March 13, 2007

The chattering class nostrum that Free Iraq and its coalition allies have "lost the Iraq war" is so blatantly wrong it would be a source of laughter were human life and hope-inspiring liberty not at such terrible risk.

Matt Towery | March 13, 2007

It's time for me to say it: I'm 100 percent positive that Gingrich will enter the battle for the GOP nomination.

Bill Murchison | March 13, 2007

Just as I was appraising the possibility of curtailing my 30-year devotion to the daily, and increasingly expensive, The New York Times, a noted research outfit limned the perplexity of all of us who consume or produce journalism.

Bruce Bartlett | March 13, 2007

Indeed, judging by what one reads on the left-wing blogs, there are many liberals out there who truly believe that the major media now have a conservative bias.

William Rusher | March 13, 2007

The battle for the Republican presidential nomination underwent a major transformation last weekend when Fred Thompson told Chris Wallace of the Fox News Channel that he is considering entering the race.

Jack Kemp | March 13, 2007

As a student and strong supporter of the Truman model for war-ravaged Western Europe and Japan, post World War II, as encompassed in the Marshall Plan, I believe it could be a powerful tool of soft diplomacy in this messy insurgency.

Mon, Mar 12, 2007

Paul Greenberg | March 12, 2007

While it was flattering to be informed that I was on your list of "our nation's key opinion leaders at this critical juncture of world affairs," it would be difficult for me to answer your questions, i.e., spout off, without feeling that I was doing so under false pretenses.

Larry Kudlow | March 12, 2007

In particular, taxing capital less has unlocked new investment and unleashed record liquidity to fund business and the stock market, even in the face of money-tightening actions by the Federal Reserve.

Howard McKeon | March 12, 2007

When discussing the concept of school choice, we often refer to the “lucky lottery of life.” A child doesn’t control which family he or she is born into, what economic situations that family must deal with, or what school he or she is likely to attend.

Phyllis Schlafly | March 12, 2007

Anyone who does much driving on our highways in ordinary sedans knows how crowded with big trucks the highways already are. President George W. Bush's latest concession to Mexico is to allow Mexican trucks for the first time to have open access to all our highways, roads and bridges.

Lynn O'Shaughnessy | March 12, 2007

Ouch. Feb. 27 was one of those days when a pinched nerve would have felt like a relief compared with the pain felt by millions of investors. In just a few hours of trading, hundreds of billions of dollars vanished.

Paul Weyrich | March 12, 2007

It really comes down to this. Most Democrats think the country is so fed up with the War that is why they won last November.

Chuck Colson | March 12, 2007

Ryan has tried to live a good life, and he hopes he has. At least in the captain’s eyes, he hopes he’s “earned it,” that his life has been worthy of the sacrifice Captain Miller and the other men made of giving their lives for his.

Herman Cain | March 12, 2007

Of course, over 200 years of American history has shown us that our elected, appointed and career government employees are not motivated by the goal of solving problems.

Rich Galen | March 12, 2007

The Popular Press was tripping all over itself this past weekend with the news that Newt Gingrich had come clean on an affair he was having while he was still Speaker; that Fred Thompson said he might consider running for President; and Chuck Hagel will be making an announcement today about his Presidential intentions.

Chuck Colson | March 12, 2007

It’s an argument that has gone on almost as long as we have had public schools: What makes children succeed in school—and what makes them fail?

Michael Barone | March 12, 2007

"History will be kind to me," Winston Churchill once said, "for I intend to write it." Indeed, he did. His multiple-volume histories of the two world wars are still widely read, though discounted by professional historians as incomplete and in some ways misleading.

Suzanne Fields | March 12, 2007

There are no atheists in foxholes, as any dogface soldier could tell you, and neither are there many atheists in politics.

Debra J. Saunders | March 12, 2007

So here you have state lawmakers working on a bill to encourage Californians to save more money -- by proposing a bill expected to cost the state $270 million a year, even though the state doesn't have the money to pay for it.

Kathryn Lopez | March 12, 2007

The attention-grabbing vocabulary of Ann Coulter is not what conservatives want as a newsworthy talking point.

Robert Novak | March 12, 2007

While Hillary Rodham Clinton came out second best to Barack Obama in their long-range oratorical duel at Selma, Ala., the real problem with her visit there a week ago concerned her March 4 speech's claim of her attachment to Martin Luther King Jr. as a high school student in 1963. How, then, could she be a "Goldwater girl" in the next year's presidential election?

Dinesh D'Souza | March 12, 2007

If you want to know how the Iraq debate got so acrimonious, the tipping point was when mainstream Democrats went from accusing Bush of bungling the Iraq war to accusing him of lying to get America into that war.

Star Parker | March 12, 2007

Bruce Gordon, who has resigned as president of the NAACP, got a crash course in the difference between the world of politics and the world of business.

Burt Prelutsky | March 12, 2007

My friend Pat Sajak recently made an excellent point. He said that inasmuch as he doesn’t take global warming to heart, he sees no good reason to alter his life style.

Mike Adams | March 12, 2007

I’m beginning to feel sorry for Julio Pino. After his department chair “outed” him as the man behind the pro-Jihadist website “Global War” he’s apparently been getting some threatening messages from people not tolerant of the religion that likes to kill innocent Christians and Jews.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | March 12, 2007

This last week I sat in a historic black American site - Mother Bethel Church in the heart of downtown Philadelphia.

Sun, Mar 11, 2007

Mary Grabar | March 11, 2007

The flock has been demoralized both by the weasels (called humanities professors) nipping at them when they were young and vulnerable, and by the leaders of churches who have either sacrificed some lambs (hoping to appease these atheist hyenas) or have simply retreated from the world.

Phil Harris | March 11, 2007

Certainly, a few cat lovers blew a retinal blood vessel or two after reading the headline, which brings me conveniently back to the actual topic.

Jonathan Garthwaite | March 11, 2007

If this week had a theme, it was certainly 'Ann Coulter'. Ann suffered a week of attacks but survived. Are you really suprised? readers didn't abandon Ann and she found herself at #3 this week. See what else readers were talking about during the week that was -- March 4th-10th, 2007

George Will | March 11, 2007

In the 13 largest cities, drivers are stuck in traffic the equivalent of nearly eight work days. Congestion's immediate and indirect economic costs -- not including lost serenity, family time and civic engagement -- just begin with fuel and wear and tear on vehicles.

Paul Kengor | March 11, 2007

Back in November, I wrote an article recalling the first time I met Santorum. I intended the piece to be a personal recollection, with some analysis of polling data, and concluding with the point that Santorum—despite the crushing margin—should never be underestimated. This is a man capable of surprising victories. The article was carried by several local and national sources, including the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. I didn’t expect much feedback, figuring I hadn’t said anything notably controversial. Boy, was I wrong.

Paul Jacob | March 11, 2007

Government schools have pushed education in the wrong direction. Some people want to push them further.

Ken Connor | March 11, 2007

Social conservatives seem to be having an especially difficult time finding an acceptable candidate to support.

Jeff Emanuel | March 11, 2007

Since the issuance of indictments last April, the prosecution of three former Duke University lacrosse players (all young white males) for the alleged rape of a black female "dancer" has continued, despite continuously mounting evidence against their assumed guilt.

Kevin McCullough | March 11, 2007

Diabolical liberals are once again showing their disdain for homosexuals, and their lack of love for those who struggle with sexual sin.
