    'They don't want to go back'

    Next step: Make women draft eligible
    It is about time the women warriors are given the green light to snuff out the bad people ("Women to get combat role," Jan. 24) in combat circumstances to protect our country. The idea of equal rights and responsibility between women and men was settled...

    Female vs. male senators
    As the son of a woman, the husband of a woman and the father of daughters and granddaughters, I celebrate the record number of females who are now United States senators. However, I do see some differences in the way these and other women are treated,...

    Women in U.S. military fight for right to serve in combat
    As a woman in the Army, Staff Sgt. Jennifer Hunt is barred from serving in the infantry. But that didn't stop commanders in Afghanistan from tapping her when they needed a female soldier to accompany men on their door-kicking missions. Hunt's job on...
  • Middle East mess was born in the U.S.A.

    Middle East mess was born in the U.S.A.
    Titillation over David Petraeus and political posturing over Susan Rice aside, here is the most important unasked question: Why did we foster regime change in Libya and Egypt that gave the Muslim Brotherhood control in the latter and produced a gaggle...
  • 20 reasons Bob Ehrlich is wrong

    Former Governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. presents a 20-point platform for Republicans to "be proud of" ("A platform for the next Republican nominee," Nov. 18). Let's examine each of these points in detail, and the reader can decide if any of them are...
  • Catholic hierarchy disregards voters — and their own faith

    The Catholic hierarchy is, sad to say, shamefully deficient in the theology of their own church. During the recent election campaign, some bishops embarrassed themselves by their loathsome meddling in partisan politics. They presented their opinions...
