Erickson: There has to be a better way

The 2024 presidential season involves the senior citizens of both parties doing everything they can to prop up two venal, corrupt, narcissistic octogenarians against a crowd of more youthful, energetic and principled alternatives. Right now, the two old oligarchs running up against God's own ...

Barone: The problems with net zero

A collection of my columns, titled "Everything Is Going To Be OK (Until It's Not)," has recently been released in book form, but I'm re-reading "Candide." And while I hope everyone buys my book, I recommend first reading Voltaire's, which is also pretty good. I mean, first of all, it'll ...

Barone: The surge of populism — and nationalism

As Joe Biden runs for a second term, we'll be hearing more questions about his age-related cognitive abilities. So far, he's doing just fine. And never mind that his likely Republican opponent, Donald Trump, gave speeches last weekend confusing the current president with Barack Obama and ...
