  • WWI demons live

    World War I started one century ago. Wait! Don't stop reading. For most Americans, the war is like algebra or frog anatomy -- something you have to study briefly in school but then never have to think about again. Unlike World War II, with its...

    What ever happened to Michael J.R. Kirby?
    There are many places in the Chicago area where a child can learn to ice skate today: ice arenas, the park district, even backyard rinks. But a few decades ago, ice skating was reserved for the most privileged of people who could afford to pay for ice...
  • Paul Greenberg: Fanaticism needs no reason

    It made no sense, not from any rational perspective. Even as Gaza was falling in all around it, Hamas kept firing rocket after rocket in the general direction of Israel, no matter how many might hit or miss or go completely astray, as when they fell...

    Clueless Kerry plays into hands of Hamas
    — John Kerry is upset by heavy criticism from Israelis — left, right and center — of his recent cease-fire diplomacy. But that's only half the story. More significant is the consternation of America's Arab partners, starting with the...

  • 'In God We Trust' legislation for schools advances theocracy

    Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Paine had it all wrong, in the view of some people, and it is time for America to follow the lead of the sheiks and mullahs of Saudi Arabia and Iran, along with the Imperial Kludds of the Ku Klux Klan and...

    Sexual orientation discrimination is target of Browne bill
    Freedom of religion, in some minds, means the freedom to impose one's religious beliefs, dogma and rules on others. That approach has been the source of much of the world's misery, from the Crusades, to the Inquisition, to Puritan oppression in America,...
  • Spooky coincidences abound as a Weisenberg Township man reveals his background

    There was an eerie moment during last Friday night's bicycle races at the velodrome in Trexlertown, when a familiar figure said he wanted to fetch something from his car, and returned with a set of nuts and bolts strung like a necklace on a wire. Darrel...
  • Going alone, but not lonely

    Going alone, but not lonely
    My recent column on the joys of traveling alone launched a steady flow of email from readers who shared their own stories of solo travel. Far more was submitted than can fit here, but this is a sampling. Submissions were edited for space. I went alone...
  • Rachel Marsden: Obsession with Putin diverts Obama's attention from terrorism

    PARIS -- The fact that U.S. President Barack Obama is putting hundreds of boots back onto the ground in Iraq to protect American interests is the result of some bad decisions and missed opportunities to correct course. Except that Russian President...
