The Elite Liberal Softer Kind of Racism

I don’t know what happened in Ferguson, Missouri between the cop and the kid. And neither do you. When I covered hard news I saw cops who crossed the line and I saw kids who started trouble. So let’s not jump to conclusions. But what do you think the reaction in Ferguson would have been…

A Few Words About a Friend Who Changed My Life

On February 8, 1996 I got a phone call that changed the course of my life. The call was from a fella named Jerry Kelley, a building contractor who was born and raised in Enterprise, Alabama and made Gomer Pyle sound like Laurence Olivier.

Why Liberals Like Soccer More than Conservatives

I’ve always been a big sports fan, which explains why I have absolutely no interest in soccer. The fact is, I’d rather watch my accountant get his toenails clipped than take in a soccer game — and that includes the World Cup final, which I’m sure will be as scintillating as any other soccer game. In soccer,…

Hobby Lobby Hysteria and Unchallenged Hyperbole

hobby

It didn’t take long, following the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby earlier this week, for many liberals to explode into full-fledged hysteria mode. The Internet predictably flared up with venom-fueled, breathtakingly irresponsible claims of companies now having the right to ban their female employees from using birth control. The assertion was utter…

The Supreme Court and the Phony War on Women

(Editor’s Note:  This column was posted just a few hours after the Supreme Court decision was handed down in the Hobby Lobby case.  But because of a technical glitch we were unable to send out our regular newsletter alert informing you the column was on the site.  If it feels a tad behind the curve,…
