The Historic Preservation Act: 50 Fun Years

A disturbing number of the rustic 19th-century farmhouses, quaint dry goods emporiums and fascinatingly grimy automotive garages I remember from childhood have, over the years, burned down or met with a wrecking ball.

Trump Still Thinks He Won the Debate

An estimated 84,000,000 Americans tuned into the 1st Presidential Debate at New York's Hofstra University last week, but Donald Trump did not seem to be among them. Mentally he had checked out, maybe to seek admission to Dr. Snuffleupagus's clinic to score some surplus Claritin.

You Can’t Make Trump What He Isn’t

Instead of trying to turn Donald Trump into Mitt Romney, I suggest the campaign junta stop trying to construct a Debatetron 5000 and instead get Trump to utilize the assets that won him the nomination: Humor, the ability to connect with an audience and a willingness to say what programmed politicians won't.

After Peres, Is Peace Possible in the Middle East?

The death of former Israeli president and prime minister Shimon Peres last week marks the last of the Zionist "old guard" who successfully fought for a UN mandate to establish the state of Israel in what was formerly British Palestine. Much has been written about Peres since his death. He was a peacemaker. He was a warrior. He was brutal. He was complex. It is possible for all of them to be accurate at the same time.

Holt’s great divide

As a syndicated newspaper columnist, a Clinton supporter, and one who teaches journalism to high school students, I was taken aback by reaction to – and pigeonholing of – my criticism of moderator Lester Holt in the first presidential debate.

Debunking the newspapers are dying idea

Imagine waking up in a world without newspapers. "Ha!" You say, "I haven't gotten a newspaper in years." But I'm not talking about just the paper delivered by carriers or the postal service. I'm talking about the news online, the links on social media, the email newsletter, the source cited in the television broadcast and the push notification on your phone. The word newspaper no longer reflects the media industry encompassed by the word.

Remember when Matt Lauer was Trump’s chump?

Matt Lauer will be remembered as a fallen sexual harasser, but in my mind, he's forever immortalized as a Donald Trump toady.
