I have not been very kind to Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in this blog and in previous op-eds. I was disappointed with his inability to accomplish things Republicans singled out in the 2012 election. It’s what angered voters, who now believe Donald Trump will be successful in making America great again. Continue reading
On April 19, I wrote about a Muslim woman, Sana Hamze, who was challenging The Citadel’s historic military uniform tradition by insisting she be permitted to wear a hijab. To its credit, The Citadel stood its ground, and turned down her request. Continue reading
The smiling face of a young black man with dreadlocks caught my eye while reading a recent edition of the Arizona Republic, but the headline, “Brophy Prep’s Josh Benjamin breaks barriers as valedictorian,” drew me into the article by Richard Obert. Continue reading

For years I have written op-eds and posts to this blog criticizing weak-kneed auto manufacturers for caving to the demands of the EPA and mandated Café Standards for miles per gallon under administrations of both parties. Now they are voicing concern over their ability to meet the target 54.5 mpg by 2025, citing their belief that cheaper gas will reduce the demand for more fuel efficient cars. Continue reading
