Good news on a story I told you about earlier. The Pentagon has finally relented on its silly dress code for women troops stationed in Saudi Arabia. Seven years after the Air Force's top-ranked female fighter pilot began a one-woman crusade, the Defense Department yesterday dropped its requirement that female military personnel in Saudi Arabia […]

I'm listening to my recording of Alan Keyes new show. It's not the greatest, but it certainly shows promise. As I've said before, Keyes is probably one of the best speakers in America today. I must admit that I was amused by Keyes segment tonight where he talks with "ordinary people, just like you." He […]

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday, USA Today ran a half-page article highlighting the fact that there is currently not a single black or hispanic governor or senator. CNN's Jeff Greenfield followed on Tuesday night with the following: 1982, Tom Bradley running for governor of California. Ahead in the polls on election day, […]

In today's "Best of the Web Today" at the Wall Street Journal's Web site reports that my least favorite attorney, Alan Dershowitz, has come out for allowing the torture of terror suspects. In an op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle, Dershowitz proposes: The suspect would be given immunity from prosecution based on information elicited by […]

Thankfully, this wouldn't be the first time that the Times' page was wrong. First off, let's recount what happened. As Moody's was pondering whether or […]

There's reports out that we may have bugged a plane intended for use by Chinese President Jiang Zemin. I'm going to echo the statement made by Wall Street Journal columnist Tunku Varadarajan: "I'm glad our spooks are doing their job. And I hope that those 27 bugs were the ones the Chinese were meant to […]

Zero-Tolerence Stupidity: I've never been impressed by the so-called zero-tolerance craze. Too often it takes common sense out of the equation, and just ends up being stupid. In the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, the airlines have taken to confiscating toenail clippers in passengers carry-on bags. Sorry, but if someone tries to hijack a […]

National Review's Larry Kudlow addresses the Enron failure -- and he's got it exactly right. This isn't about politics or campaign-finance reform -- it's about the law. The Enron and Arthur Andersen folks are crooks. Big-time crooks, but crooks nonetheless. Jail 'em. All the Enron and Arthur Andersen principals, and then some. Why? To save […]

I've never been particularly enamored of so-called human rights watchdogs like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. They're havens for limousine liberals whose main concern is cop-killers like Mumia Abu Jamal, and not for truly oppressed, like Christians in Sudan, Indonesia and China.

Bernard Goldberg, author of the best-selling book Bias, strikes back in an op-ed piece in today's Washington Post. Both Michael Kinsley and Tom Shales had assailed Goldberg's work, using mainly ad hominem attacks. After presenting his liberal bona fides -- Goldberg voted for presidential candidate George McGovern -- Goldberg tackles the bias issue again. While […]
