Charen: Pro-lifers need a new strategy

What is the pro-life movement? I've always imagined it to be broader than just efforts to make abortion illegal. In the wake of the 2022 elections, in which voters rejected candidates whose abortion postures were perceived as extreme, those who care about the welfare of unborn children might ...

Harrop: Trumpian carnage goes on full display

A year ago, he was still a dreaded presence, a destroyer of American institutions forcing chaos on a frightened nation. After the public voted to remove him from the White House, he maintained relevance by controlling a violent mob stupid and criminal enough to trash the Capitol, threaten to ...

Byrd: Lifestyles of the rich

Small children who are loved are wealthy in many ways, including materially, because they don’t know any better (which makes them wiser than most of us). When our daughter was little, we were living in Salt Lake and we, unlike her, were most emphatically not rich. One day, the two of us were ...

Letter: The hazards of driving on Harrison Boulevard

Harrison Blvd should be renamed Harrison Obstacle Course. The new “traffic pattern” is a joke. It’s impossible to see the markings on the street when it’s dark and raining. What will it be like even in the daylight when the street is snow covered? The sign asking drivers to exercise ...

Stiehm: Voters verdict — End of the Trump era

The country came to its senses last Tuesday, after a seven-year famine in our politics. The worst in our nature showed up in vulgar, violent and virulent former President Donald Trump. The hard-fought congressional midterms are a turning point in our civil strife. Election Day delivered a ...
