  • 'Homeland' recap: 'A Red Wheelbarrow'

    'Homeland' recap: 'A Red Wheelbarrow'
    I have several friends who have given up on "Homeland." It’s true that Season 2 was clunky, overwrought, and loose with many details. We made fun of its many moments of melodramatic dialogue, terrible acting and difficult-to-believe plot twists....
  • 'Homeland' recap: 'Horse and Wagon'

    'Homeland' recap: 'Horse and Wagon'
    Just last week, I climbed out on a limb to announce that "Homeland" was officially out of the woods and back on the safe side of the proverbial shark. Then this week happened. By the end of episode nine, I felt like Dana crying in her motel room: “...

    Deja vu intelligence policy [Commentary]
    Fifty years ago, Harry Truman wrote an article in the Washington Post expressing his disappointment over what the Central Intelligence Agency had become. He had established the CIA in 1947 to provide his office with objective information. But it had...
  • Mandela's views were not always so well received [Letter]

    I agree with Sherman Howell, "Nelson Mandela showed powerfully how one person can improve the world" [Dec. 12], but I think that it could serve a useful purpose to point out that, as far as the current adulation of Mandela by the U.S. is concerned, it was...
