Cartoon of the Day


Dems display cultural extremism on abortion

Science is presenting inconvenient truths to the Party of Science, truths that are the reasons the percentage of pregnancies aborted is the smallest since 1973.

N. Korea is playing a longer game than the US

If we think through the North Korea nuclear weapons dilemma using game theory, one aspect of the problem deserves more attention, namely the age of the country’s leader, Kim Jong Un: 33.

Shulkin shouldn’t leave VA post now

There is a lot of unfinished business in VA, requiring knowledgeable leadership. The White House cannot sacrifice that even if direction is needed elsewhere in the battle over the Affordable Care Act.


OPINION

Pence backs Trump so he can follow him in office

Former Vice President John Nance Garner once said the position he held under Franklin Roosevelt wasn’t worth a pitcher of warm spit. If Pence makes his move, one should consider that he carried the pitcher with pride.


OPINION

GOP fractiousness is counterproductive

OPINION

Girls don’t need the Boy Scouts’ approval

The Boy Scouts’ policy change isn’t just about the opportunities it creates for individual girls. It’s about what we convey to young women about their achievements and the context in which they pursue them.


OPINION

My family’s legal. That doesn’t make us special.

I saw I had put value on “playing by the rules” without realizing how immigration rules are arbitrary at best and discriminatory at worst.


OPINION

A black man is charged in his own beating?

Here it is — we have it now — the defining moment of this bizarro, alternate reality we’re living in today.


OPINION

Politics, sports are still separate arenas

When athletes, black or white, bring their political statements onto the field of play or refuse an invitation to the White House, it destroys many fans’ connections to sports.
