Don’t Expect the Media to Give Trump a Fair Shake

At first it seems the opposing political cheering sections are trying to drown out each other with cries of "sabotage!" and "hero!"

Shortest Letter in the Bible Solves Illegal Immigration Problem

The New York Times found a vaguely Christian church that merits approval. This is harder than it seems. While the Times sets a low bar for approving mosques - no exploding members in the last six months - standards for Christian approval are much more stringent.

This Isn’t the Chicago I Knew

Can Megyn Kelly Thrive Outside the Bubble?

When the news broke Tuesday that Megyn Kelly was leaving the Fox News bubble to pursue a broader audience at NBC, my initial thought was: Who cares? Talking heads frequently switch networks, and Americans increasingly get their news not from TV, but from social media sites.

Should Bothering Employees After Work Hours Be Illegal?

On Jan. 1, France implemented a new law that gives workers the legal "right to disconnect" from emails and other digital correspondence from co-workers and bosses while off the clock.

On 2017 Resolutions

I read an article lately where the author expressed her gratefulness for life. She talked about the rough spots, the hills and valleys, the times of grief and joy. But, basically, she was grateful for life. She found life to be a gift and an adventure nonetheless.

Good News: Washington Frozen Out of Syria Peace Plan

As the U.S. mainstream media obsessed last week about Russia's supposed "hacking" of the U.S. elections and President Obama's final round of Russia sanctions in response, something very important was taking place under the media radar. As a result of a meeting between foreign ministers of Russia, Iran, and Turkey last month, a ceasefire in Syria has been worked out and is being implemented. So far it appears to be holding, and after nearly six years of horrible warfare the people of Syria are finally facing the possibility of rebuilding their lives.

Suggestions For Liberals in 2017

Because the Democrat Party continues to implode, I thought it would be helpful to write my third annual "Suggestions for Liberals" column. So here goes:

It’s Time to Rein in Regulators

I've written a book chapter and a lot of columns over the years on the Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act ---- a profoundly simple, powerful bill that would require regulators and bureaucrats to get their most expensive rules approved by Congress before they could take effect ---- and we've never been closer to seeing it signed into law.

Precap of News Certain to Occur in 2017

Thanks to Donald Trump and the Chicago Cubs my outlandish predictions for 2016 were eclipsed by, of all things, reality. Worse, the fine art of fake news was commandeered by demons who used it for social and political gain––something my colleagues and I would never have dreamed possible.

Another Job Americans Won’t Do: Work on a Cruise Ship

Cruise ship travel continues to gain in popularity as passenger demand can barely keep up with fleet additions. The global cruise industry generated revenues of $37.1 billion in 2014, and is predicted to hit nearly $50 billion by year end 2018 when the number of passengers carried will exceed 25 million.

The Latest Lie From Trump’s Alt-Reality

You never hear the term "black liar" anymore. I think it died in the 19th century, which is a shame, because it'd be a kick to diss a fabulist by saying, "You are a black liar, sir!"
