We are keeping company, as the old phrase used to be. I'm not making any moves immediately. I don't think it's proper. My wife has only been gone less than a year. I'll wait until that year has passed, at least.
Attorney General John Ashcroft has earned himself a remarkable distinction as the Torquemada of American law. TomÃ¡s de Torquemada...was largely responsible for...[the] torture and the burning of heretics â€” Muslims in particular. Now, of course, I am not accusing the Attorney General of pulling ou
Congress & the Presidency in the Television Age.

In fact, I'm a little inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, that he probabl
When Moses was alive, these pyramids were a thousand years old. Here began the history of architecture. Here people learned to measure time by a calendar, to plot the stars by astronomy and chart the earth by geometry. And here they developed that most awesome of all ideas - the idea of eternity.
The invasion of Iraq was illegal from the start.
We've got a great percentage of our population that, to our great shame, either cannot or, equally unfortunate, will not read. And that portion of our public is growing. Those people are suckers for the demagogue.

Would it be better to have a president who cries easily? Well, that depends on what he cried about. I would not like the thought of a president who could not cry. That would be worse than one who cried over the right things. Which, in this case, would be the things I would cry over.

Freedom of the press is not just important to democracy, it is democracy.
Terrible, it was terrible. Even today and it's been several months now you just bring it up and I tear up a little bit, terribly.
