My periodic "Did You Know" columns tend to raise the blood pressure of more conservative readers who are embarrassed/angry/frustrated by the increasingly aggressive counter-cultural policies of the hard left and their allies in Hollywood, on campus, and...
In the two months after 9/11, I called Baltimore County police to check out a black-and-tan backpack left by an office door in Towson, reported an abandoned carry-on bag at BWI to Maryland State Police and refused to watch a bulky valise for a stranger...
Who would have thought that within President Barack Obama beats the heart of a civil rights antediluvian? Could Obama, beloved of the American Civil Liberties Union, be guilty of harboring thoughts of calling down a fatal drone attack on an American...

A rare beast was spotted this week in Washington. An event as rare as the sighting of Big Foot. We actually saw a real filibuster in action. It was a welcome event, even if it was performed by crazy Sen. Rand Paul. For two reasons. One, because Paul...
My initial impression of the murderous attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was probably similar to yours. A horrific incident. A security failure. Another example of radical Islamic overreaction to the most tepid of incidents — in this case,...
