New York City's Stuyvesant High School is one of those all too rare public schools for intellectually outstanding students. ... more

Jonah Goldberg - Wed Mar 27

There once was a popular sitcom called "Murphy Brown." The title character, played by Candice Bergen, was a news anchor. The show had its moments, but it was also insufferably pleased with itself and its liberalism. ... more

John Andrews - Fri Mar 1

When a prominent man says he is stepping down to spend more time with his family, it’s usually a fib. He invokes the family as a fig leaf for failure, embarrassed to admit the horse bucked him off. ... more

Michael Brown - Thu Jan 10

Over the years, many people have asked me to pray for them concerning a myriad of problems and difficulties, but a request for prayer from a Christian living in mainland China was a first for me: His wife was pregnant with their second child, and with his country’s draconian one-child policy, having a second child would mean severe fines and penalties for many years to come. Would I please pray for him and for his wife? ... more

Mona Charen - Fri Dec 7

Discussing the role of single people in the election of 2012 on my weekly podcast with Jay Nordlinger "Need to Know" (available on Ricochet.com or Nationalreview.com), your humble columnist chose the insensitive way to address it. Chatting with Jonathan V. Last of The Weekly Standard about his piece "A Nation of Singles," I popped off that "Single mothers want the state to be their husbands and father to their children." ... more

My son, age 42, finally got married. His bride, in a shimmering turquoise maternity dress, walked down a red carpet with rose petals scattered by his 8-year-old twin nieces, to join a cantor who sang the Jewish blessings under a chuppah, a canopy held by a man on each corner, in a quasi-traditional wedding ceremony. ... more

For many moms, Black Friday kicked off not only the Christmas shopping season, but the season of overload: too much to do and too little merriment. Family calendars swell with social obligations—work Christmas parties, neighborhood cookie swaps, school Christmas plays (with socials afterwards), and generic “holiday” events hosted by nearly every group on your email list. ... more

Jeff Carter - Sun Aug 14

There are a lot of changes we need to make to help grow our economy and change the pace of the anemic unemployment numbers. If we want to help teens, we ought to drop the minimum wage to $5 per hour, or get rid of it altogether. ... more

Ann Coulter - Wed Aug 10

I guess we now have the proof of what conservatives have been saying since forever: Looting is a result of liberal welfare policies. And Britain is in the end stages of the welfare state. ... more

Ann Coulter - Wed Jul 6

The plague of single motherhood isn't an inevitable decay brought on by stupid choices of the underclass. Destroying the family is the active social policy of liberals. They enjoy experimenting with other people's lives and leaving the taxpayer with the bill. ... more

John Hawkins - Tue May 31

Anyone who follows politics knows that the mainstream media has two sets of rules: one set for conservatives and another set for liberals. Conservatives spend most of their time correcting smears and trying to explain to the public what they really believe. Liberals, on the other hand, can count on the press to hide their unpopular beliefs and put the best spin possible on everything they do. ... more

David Limbaugh - Tue Feb 1

Though tolerance is not the highest virtue and hypocrisy is not the lowest sin, liberals have a dearth of the former while demanding it and an abundance of the latter while forbidding it. ... more

Jonah Goldberg - Fri Dec 24

It's a festive time: singing on the sidewalks, good cheer erupting at home and the office. I'm of course referring to the revelry that descends on the library carrels and fluorescently iridescent cubicles around Washington when the census data comes out. ... more
