Column: There he goes again
WASHINGTON — From Shanghai to Paris to Moscow, the world has been watching to see how the U.S. election is affected by the latest terrorist bloodbath on our soil, this time in the shadow of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. Newspapers in those cities and in many others focused attention...

Column: A Florida mourned
ORLANDO — Standing on my hotel balcony in the predawn hours, I gaze out over several dimly illuminated swimming pools abutting a small manmade lake and a golf course. Beyond the grassy carpet now black with night stretches a vast darkness that ends at a thin strand of lights marking...

Column: GOP surrenders to the dark side
WASHINGTON — With the surrender of House Speaker Paul Ryan to the Trump crusade, it is fair to wonder what the Republican Party stands for. Ryan’s endorsement of Trump, which appeared in an op-ed the speaker wrote for his hometown paper — rather than before a gaggle of reporters...

Column: Once a great notion
OXFORD, Md. — It was such a marvelous idea: The United States of America. Obviously, we’ve never really pulled it all together under one hat, but it has always seemed that at least we were striving for a more perfect union. No more. Something changed — and quickly, as history...

Column: A legacy of a pre-post-racial era
WASHINGTON — As Barack Obama’s presidency takes a backseat to the psychodrama known as the 2016 election, historians, speculators and revisionists are busy writing his presidential epitaph. Not least of the revisionists is Obama himself. At a recent commencement address at historically...

Column: A Trump too far?
WASHINGTON — If Donald Trump prefers combatants who aren’t captured, as he once mocked John McCain, he apparently doesn’t believe in taking prisoners, either. The exception to the rule is obviously truth. But then, veracity is no hindrance to the conspiracy-minded. Now, Trump...

Column: Election disaffection
CHARLESTON, S.C. — On rare occasions, Americans coalesce around a common cause, usually following some calamity — a terrorist attack, a natural disaster or, say, during a presidential election. Take today. Or rather, take the past several months during which Americans have begun...

Column: Hillary's viral nightmare
WASHINGTON — You could say that it all depends on how you define “lie.” Or, perhaps, that it’s hell to have a public record. Either way, Hillary Clinton’s vast resume of, shall we say, inconsistencies, is the dog that caught the car and won’t let go. A viral video collection...

Column: Rules are for breaking
WASHINGTON — It should be obvious to all by now that Donald Trump knows nothing of what he speaks. His disastrous economic ideas are but the latest in a litany of nonsensical proposals. Yet, and still, his supporters — that Republican base so carefully nurtured by the very GOP...

Column: Farewell, grand old party
WASHINGTON — It wasn’t precisely an act of moral courage, but House Speaker Paul Ryan’s comment that he’s not ready to support presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump was at least ... something. Whether it’s a start or a finish remains to be revealed, but it would...

Column: Ted Cruz's fall from grace
WASHINGTON — When Shakespeare wrote the “truth will out,” he must have had Ted Cruz in mind. Cruz’s truth — or his true self — has been leaking by steady drips ever since he began his candidacy, which was at approximately 12:10 p.m. on January 3, 2013, when Cruz was sworn...

Column: Trump, in his own words
WASHINGTON — One of the most effective political ads of the season features women repeating the many derogatory statements Donald Trump has made about the fairer sex. No editorial comment is needed when a candidate’s own words stand alone to expose his flaws, and thus to condemn...

Column: Black votes matter
CHARLESTON, S.C. — African-Americans in the South can’t get a break when it comes to voting, as history can’t deny. After all they’ve endured through slavery, Jim Crow and the fight for civil rights, their voices are still treated dismissively by tone-deaf politicians who...

Column: A trans-ient dilemma
WASHINGTON — As Archie Bunker might say, the world is going down the terlet. And how. Who could have predicted that politics would require serious discussion of who uses what restroom? Or, personally speaking, a second column? Alas, it seems that yet greater clarity is needed regarding...

Column: Karma tastes rich in new, humane economy
WASHINGTON — As the human circus of presidential politics has plodded along for what seems a decade now, a revolution has been taking place in the ever-more-dignified animal kingdom. Several victories in just the past few weeks have raised cheers, or their equivalent, in aquariums,...
