  • Why Wendy Can't Win - 10/21/2014

    Why does Texas, a pulsating, change-oriented state, full of young people, full of minorities, full of those women the Republicans are alleged (by Democrats) to be running a "war" against -- how come Texas "remains strongly Republican"?

  • The Price of Papal Popularity - 10/21/2014

  • When Duty Doesn't Call - 10/14/2014

    Americans will cease arguing over the federal Voting Rights Act and its intricacies—oh, I imagine around the time Texas starts exporting ground water to Minnesota, or the Lord returns to judge the quick and the dead.

  • Goodbye, Columbus - 10/14/2014

    In 1492, "Columbus sailed the ocean blue" and discovered the New World. And Oct. 12 was once a celebrated holiday in America.

  • Our Judicial Dictatorship - 10/10/2014

    Do the states have the right to outlaw same-sex marriage? Not long ago the question would have been seen as absurd. For every state regarded homosexual acts as crimes.
