Column: Fear thee well to 2016
CHARLESTON, S.C. -- As usual, the year's end brings reflections and ruminations on what was and what is to be. This time around, however, it feels as though an era is coming to an end. That gentle frisson between past and future about which columnists customarily write feels vaguely...

Column: Aleppo and American decline
WASHINGTON -- The fall of Aleppo just weeks before Barack Obama leaves office is a fitting stamp on his Middle East policy of retreat and withdrawal. The pitiable pictures from the devastated city showed the true cost of Obama’s abdication. For which he seems to have few regrets,...

Column: Dear Mr. Trump
WASHINGTON -- You won. Welcome to hell. And to think, I thought you'd become president when hell froze over. Now that the election is finally behind us, may I ask a tiny question: Why did you want this job? Was it on your bucket list? After so many square miles of golf...

Column: Trump needs to stop celebrating and start healing
WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald Trump needs to heal, not revel. That is, he must work on healing the divided country he is about to lead, not continue to revel in his victory with a round of thank-you rallies. Instead, we see: Trump griping about the political correctness of...

Column: The parable of Mother Emanuel
CHARLESTON, S.C. -- In the parable of the sower, a farmer sprinkles seeds upon four different types of terrain, one of which is rocky where seeds fail to thrive. As interpreted by scholars, the rock refers to the human heart that's made of stone and therefore resistant to the seed...

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- A deep stillness settled over the federal courtroom as graphic photos were shown of the nine people murdered last year at Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church. The defendant, 22-year-old Dylann Roof, sat motionless throughout, as he had since his death penalty trial began...
