Op-Ed: Fighting terror prayer challenge (selfies OK)

On Sundays, our parish sings the Beatitudes, from the Sermon on the Mount. But this time, the words reached through the millennia to highlight the headlines of today: wars, beheadings, and the jihadist genocides of Christians and people of other faiths.

Op-Ed: A veto threat even Vito would appreciate

Just about the only folks having a good time with the indictment of Texas governor Rick Perry are members of the national media and folks who really don’t understand Texans or politics.

Op-Ed: New Mississippi law goes both ways, apparently

The nation has a new state law that goes both ways, it seems. And the interesting thing about the law is that even its supporters think it doesn’t go all the way.

Op-Ed: Christmas at the mall has a whole ‘nuther vibe

It’s been awhile since I’ve been to the local neighborhood mall, or any mall for that matter. Malls are the one-stop shopping spots for people jonesing for a retail fix.

Op-Ed: Newspaper prints apology for its 1863 editorial calling Gettysburg Address 'silly'

Seven score and ten years ago, President Abraham Lincoln brought forth on the battlefield of Gettysburg a new speech containing just 273 words, written in his own hand, and finished just before he arrived from Washington.

Our kitchen calendar says summer ends Sept. 21. But all of us kids know Halloween, celebrated tonight, is the real end of summer.

Op-Ed: All politics is agency theory

The posturing politicians, pundits, and poobahs in Washington who participated in this latest partial government shutdown once more prove the wisdom of a couple of political tenets: All politics is local, and agents will act in their own best interests.

Op-Ed: Forget priests, let’s have some female NFL coaches

Since becoming the head guy in The Vatican, Pope Francis has pulled a bigger beach crowd than the Rolling Stones, walked through slums, and washed and kissed the feet of prisoners.

Op-Ed: But in Topeka the flies are a-buzzin’

Someone awaking from a really long coma and forced to watch morning network and cable news shows might think the biggest story facing the civilized world today involves a wandering Weiner.

Op-Ed: Let’s have that conversation about racism

People across the United States are hot under the collar these days, and not just because of record high temperatures. No, they are letting off steam over last week’s acquittal of George Zimmerman by a Florida jury.

Op-Ed: Buying friends, but influencing no one

Being without friends is no fun. Remember that scene from The Bride of Frankenstein, the one with the old hermit? “Alone, bad,” the monster noted. “Friend, good.”

Op-Ed: Don’t bomb the interview: job tips for terrorists

If you find yourself changing careers, out on the streets looking for a new job, you probably will learn what other job seekers have discovered: it is a cruel and ugly world out there.

Op-Ed: Memo to GOP — Don’t be a scorpion

A scorpion comes to a flooded river and cannot cross, so the story goes. The scorpion asks a nearby frog to ferry him to the other side.

Op-Ed: Politics and Comedy — May the farce be with you

A fine line exists between satire and bad taste. Mel Brooks danced up to that line with his “Springtime for Hitler and Germany” in “The Producers.”

Op-Ed: Barack Obama and the forgotten Emmett Till

No presidency is complete without a constitutional crisis, real or imagined. Political critics claimed George W. Bush committed a string of high crimes and misdemeanors, from the Iraq war, to torture, to illegal wiretaps.

Op-Ed: Some facts are not true, and that’s a fact

Hash Brown, down at Sparky’s Diner, likes to tell the story about his buddy who handed out a fistful of dollar bills to the good-looking “exotic” dancer, only to find out she was a he.

Op-Ed: It’s Election Day Morning in America

5:00 a.m. It is morning in America, Election Day morning. And yes, it still comes with a special thrill that may not go up my leg, but it tingles the body and soul nonetheless.

Op-Ed: The political perfect storm may have already hit the elections

As Big Sandy sets her eyes on New Jersey to deliver Mother Nature’s October Surprise to the nation’s east coast, a political perfect storm may have already hit the nation.

Op-Ed: Why do Americans mistrust the media? Here’s one reason

America’s news organizations did not spend much time reporting on the most recent Gallup poll that looked at how the public feels about them.

Op-Ed: Pass/Fail grades for conventions

The absence of a filing deadline is a luxury here at the ranch when current events require more than the instant analysis demanded by editors needing constant content updates to feed the cyber beast.
