Let pharmacies prescribe birth control

Posted yesterday in National Columns

Back in 1933, Rep. Walter Pierce of Oregon introduced a bill in Congress to let doctors discuss birth control with their patients. The need for such a bill showed how controversial the subject was. But this was the heart of the Great Depression, when impoverished Americans could barely feed the children they had.



There's salesmanship, and there's pure deception

There's nothing new about the need for buyers to beware, but the Internet has provided a whole new arena for deception.



Other editors: The twin towers of denial

Posted yesterday in National Columns

Donald Trump loves to pick on Hillary Clinton. That's no surprise, given Trump is a Republican running for president and Clinton is a Democrat doing the same thing.


Kathleen Parker: We look in the mirror and see ... Donald Trump

Posted 11/28/2015 in National Columns

Surely he's finally gone and done it now. Donald Trump, insulter extraordinaire, was bound to cross a line too far. Two days before Thanksgiving, he made many people feel nostalgic for the merely obnoxious Trump when he mocked a reporter with a physical disability, displaying a level of cruelty and meanness heretofore only suspected.


Charlie Mitchell: Cultivating an attitude of gratitude

OXFORD -- Halloween. Thanksgiving. Christmas. Bam, bam, bam. The trifecta of holidays. The middle one was this week. Like a middle child, it becomes lost in the shuffle.



Froma Harrop: What happened to Jeb Bush? Too much money

Posted 11/28/2015 in National Columns

Jeb Bush has dropped into single digits in the polls -- and that's just among Republicans in his home state of Florida. What happened to the man with all the money, top name recognition and, according to last year's political sages, a clear shot at his party's presidential nomination?



Froma Harrop: Are you happy?

Posted 11/25/2015 in National Columns

Like many others, I can't resist academic studies on happiness. They often come up with persuasive reasons some seem to be happier than others. I'm always on the lookout for pointers.



Kathleen Parker: Crazy is as crazy does

One week, Beirut and Paris; the next week, Mali. The nightmare is young. Where next?



Patrick Buchanan: Will Europe man up?

If the purpose of terrorism is to terrify, the Islamic State had an extraordinary week. Brussels, capital of the EU and command post of mighty NATO, is still in panic and lockdown.


Patrick Buchanan: The end of Obamaworld

Posted 11/21/2015 in National Columns

In denouncing Republicans as "scared of widows and orphans," and castigating those who prefer Christian refugees to Muslims coming to America, Barack Obama has come off as petulant and unpresidential. Clearly, he is upset. And with good reason.


Leonard Pitts: Just how important are personal rights?

Posted 11/21/2015 in National Columns

"Let's stop worrying about people's rights." Sadly there are dozens of junctures in American history from which that shameful quote might spring. It could date as far back as 1798 when President Adams signed the Alien and Sedition Acts, making it illegal to criticize the U.S. government.



Froma Harrop: Football and gaming, what could possibly go wrong?

Posted 11/21/2015 in National Columns

They worship at the high altar of football. They're everywhere. I don't give a fig about football, but the cult surrounds me. In the offseason, the devotees were stomping the floor over Tom Brady and a football's air pressure. They demanded to know my opinion on the matter. That I had none amazed them.



Susan Estrich: Ben and Bernie's world

In the wake of the horrors in Paris, it only made sense to change the focus of Saturday night's Democratic debate from economic issues to national security, as CBS News did.



Froma Harrop: A tale of two terrors: Paris and New York

Posted 11/19/2015 in National Columns

Like most people, I'm thinking of the terrorist trauma in Paris, though with a somewhat different perspective.
