In a previous column, I noted that Dayton, Ohio, where a racist killer murdered nine innocent people, was the site of a 1995 international peace agreement, the Dayton Accords.

Not long after the birth of our nation, women lost the right to vote!

“Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time” seems like a straightforward equation made for simpler times. Indeed, the phrase was made popular by the 1970s cop show “Baretta” and even once cited in the Congressional Record. Yet from the 1970s to the mid-2000s, the average sentence in the Un…

It goes on and on. Less than a week after killers in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, murdered 31 innocent people, including a young mother and father protecting their new baby, a 33-year-old man in Santa Ana, California, stabbed six people there, killing four of them.

The Green New Deal, spearheaded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey consists of a laundry list full of hopeful environmental conventions and protocols that would only serve to redistribute income from sea to shining sea.

President Donald Trump’s immigration agenda has always been considered exclusionary and prejudiced by progressives; now they consider it tainted by mass murder. The El Paso massacre, carried out by a white nationalist waging a lunatic war against Hispanic immigration, is being used as a blud…

To the surprise of no one and the disgust of everyone, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission recently announced that it will raise tolls by 6 percent, effective Jan. 5, 2020.

During his racist tirades last week, Donald Trump spent much of his time attacking Congressman Elijah Cummings, who represents much of Baltimore and adjoining majority-black precincts in Maryland’s Baltimore County.

School may be out for the summer, but the lingering pall of the standardized test hangs over playgrounds, summer camps and amusement parks like a rainy day at a picnic.  

The argument continues, despite FBI reports indicating that Russia attempted to interfere with our 2016 presidential election. The dispute persists in spite of former FBI director Robert Mueller’s stark warning during his testimony before the U.S. House, on July 24. At that moment, Mueller i…

My wife and I were riveted to our seats when Robert Mueller, the special counsel, laid out the high points of his 448-page report showing that the principals in Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign — including Trump himself — knew that a foreign power was intervening in our election and welcomed it,…

As our nation celebrated its 243rd birthday earlier this month, some on the Left compared the festivity in Washington, D.C. to communist China and those annual May Day parades in the old Soviet Union. 

Rarely has a made-for-TV drama been such bad TV.

WASHINGTON — Robert Mueller’s disastrous testimony has taken the wind out of the sails of the Democratic impeachment drive. That is a victory for President Trump. But it also was good news for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

In my column last week I noted in passing that Donald Trump is a racist. Everyone knows it. Anyone who has ears has heard it. His poisonous attacks on four African-American Congresswomen have significantly underscored the ugliness of his racism. The House of Representatives voted to condemn …

Every action undertaken or proposed by the Trump administration seems to be subject to challenge.  The resistance movement appears capable of tying everything up in legal knots, while complaining that nothing is being accomplished as a complicit federal judiciary goes along.  

The Troy Fair is the largest event in Bradford County, drawing thousands to Alparon Park every summer for a full week of whirling neon rides, greasy food, tractor pulls, demo derbies and 4H shows galore. With such large crowds a wide variety of characters emerge, many of which I’m sure you’l…

I taught in colleges and universities for many years. From time to time I enjoy a little quiz.

1969 was a half century ago and yet when that historical year comes up in conversation, those Miracle Mets always lead off.  After being 100 to one underdogs the New York Mets finally came of age and went on to win the World Series that October.  

The heart-rending photograph of the lifeless bodies of Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez, 25, of El Salvador, with his 23-month-old daughter, Angie Valeria, clinging to his back grabbed our attention and reminded us of the crisis we would prefer to forget.

Donald Trump was visibly green with envy two years ago in Paris as he watched the flags flying and the troops marching down the Champs-Elysées, famous in song and story. He wanted a big parade too!

As tensions between the U.S. and China escalate, Washington is waking up to the threat posed by Beijing’s longstanding espionage and cyber hacking. But there’s another looming problem — and one that’s been overlooked for too long: America’s growing dependence on China for prescription drugs.

There is plenty to say about brevity, but that would defeat the purpose.  Neither time nor space affords me the opportunity to opine on the many headlines, stories, and political twists that comprise an average news day – let alone an entire week.  With that in mind, and keeping with the col…

Back in May, I vowed not to watch the upcoming Democratic debates. “Too early,” I grumbled. “How can voters possibly be ready to consider potential candidates for an election that is nearly a year and a half off?”

WASHINGTON — Nike has withdrawn a new Independence Day-themed shoe featuring the Revolutionary War-era flag after former NFL quarterback and Nike-endorser Colin Kaepernick complained that the flag was a symbol of the slave era, according to the Wall Street Journal. Nike offered a lame excuse…
