Media Not Interested in Obamacare Disaster

Subdued by distracting media elites chattering about Joe Biden's non-campaign for president, behind the curtain of the alleged "debacle" and "catastrophic dysfunction" of the Republican House Speaker race and swept under the carpet embroidered with the words, "Trump Says Bush Responsible for 9/11," is news that should be dominating newspaper front pages across the country.

Russia Is Worried About Obama's America

"Beware Greeks bearing gifts" was a handy rule-of-thumb for savvy governments in the ancient Mediterranean world. Troy's disastrous experience with Odysseus' wooden horse ruined the going-away-gift tradition for centuries.

Could Medicare be Obamacare's Savior?

Like it or not, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the law of the land. Whether or not it will prove to protect patients and facilitate affordable medical care is another story.

Can The Experts Rescue Halloween?

According to the National Retail Foundation, Americans will spend $6.9 billion on Halloween this year. To the untrained observer, that sounds as if the autumn celebration will be around forever; but I am concerned for the long-term health of the holiday.

Red Meat vs Creme Brulee

If the disappointment of everyone expecting fireworks at the first Democratic debate exhibited itself as perspiration, we could declare the California drought over. A few soggy matches might have been lit but that was it. Heavy on the smoke, non-existent on the flame.

Defining Courage

Courage is a word that means different things to different people. It's like Rashomon, the story that changed every time it was retold through a different perspective.

Central Kansas Medical Center Candy Stripers: The way we were

The call came as I was walking out the front door of our house. "Are you finished with that hospital column?" It was my sister Kate, calling from Wichita. She had just reviewed my draft column.

Rarely do they remind us that power is widely dispersed in our federal system, and that presidents are compelled to share it with the typically disputatious members of Congress.

Banana Republicans Take Charge

To paraphrase former Speaker Sam Rayburn, Republicans have proven they can knock down a barn. In the aftermath of John Boehner's resignation and Kevin McCarthy's withdrawal, now they have to find among their number a carpenter who can rebuild the House. Until then, our Congress is being held hostage by Banana Republicans with a bad case of electoral dysfunction.
