  • The 2012 choice

    This election will tell us what kind of America we believe in. Is it the one our Founders bequeathed to their posterity of limited government, or is it the one re-made in the image of liberal paternalistic government? The choice, as President Obama has...
  • Suicide of a newspaper

    When a city, or a state, loses its daily newspaper, something of its soul is lost with it. It's as if ancient Athens had lost its agora, the forum at its center where scholars taught and great debates were held. Or if Jerusalem lost its Western Wall,...

  • Connecticut Leaves Businesses Vulnerable

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry made a splash by arriving in Connecticut on the wings of an advertising blitz declaring the Lone Star State "Open for Business." Perry wants Connecticut businesses to move to Texas. There's nothing new in governors alighting in other...
  • Lusting Boss Casts Object Of His Desire Onto The Street

    Last week I saw a girl wearing a yellow dress so tight it should have been made out of "caution" tape. I might well have been one of the few middle-aged heterosexual women looking at her and thinking "God bless America." The glazed-eyed lingering...
  • Al Neuharth dies at 89; newspaper mogul created USA Today

    Al Neuharth, the newspaper mogul who in 1982 made a $1-billion gamble called USA Today that earned derision for its emphasis on brevity, flashy graphics and upbeat stories but endured to become the nation's largest-circulation newspaper, died Friday in...

     Chicago voter registration down compared with 2008, election officials say
    The hometown buzz among young voters surrounding President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign isn't as strong this time out, if Chicago voter registration is any indication. There are 138,000 fewer people signed up to vote in the 18-to-34-year-old group than...
