  • Carl Leubsdorf: Threats of impeachment all too common since Nixon left office

    Forty years after the Watergate scandal forced President Richard Nixon to resign or face certain impeachment and conviction, Washington's increasing partisanship too often leads to politicians threatening to go there. The consensus in 1974 was that the...
  • Review: 'The Invisible Bridge' by Rick Perlstein

    Review: 'The Invisible Bridge' by Rick Perlstein
    It's a cliché. The college professor asks for a show of hands. How many of you know about the Vietnam war? Nobody. Watergate? A sprinkling. (Maybe they saw the movie with Robert Redford on Netflix.) The kidnapping of heiress Patty Hearst and that whole...

    Rick Perlstein's 'The Invisible Bridge' spans Nixon-Reagan transition
    I watched Watergate unfold as if it were a spectator sport. Not just the Irvin committee hearings, at which John W. Dean intoned that "there was a cancer growing on the presidency," but also the House Judiciary Committee hearings, the press conferences,...
  • Proposed amendments reek of hypocrisy

    Let us now praise Democratic hypocrisy. Throughout my life, various Republicans have suggested amending the Constitution in one way or another. A few years ago, they suggested revising the 14th Amendment to get rid of automatic birthright citizenship....

    Cities embracing microbrews while state skunks market
    There's room for just nine bar stools inside the closet-size tap room at The Hourglass Brewery, a craft-beer oasis in Longwood. But when the 2-year-old startup brewer moves this fall to a cavernous 6,000-square-foot space across Ronald Reagan Boulevard,...
  • President Obama buying in Rancho Mirage? Not this time

    The house in Rancho Mirage that was thought to be purchased by President Obama sold for $3.5 million to a couple from Omaha with no apparent ties to the commander-in-chief. Talk of a potential presidential purchase began when Barack and Michelle Obama...

    2014 Pebble Beach: Petersen Museum remodel sends cars to Reagan Library
    Representatives of the Petersen Automotive Museum took advantage of the annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance to announce they have collected more than half of the $125 million they will need for their massive planned remodel. The museum has also made...
  • Specter archives on exhibit at Philadelphia University

    The piece hung over the sofa in Arlen Specter's Capitol office: Framed replicas of the failed U.S. Senate resolution to impeach President Bill Clinton, personally signed by all 100 senator/jurors, the House members who prosecuted the case, and members...
  • Ticked off! @ traffic light, society

    I'm extremely ticked off at the way they have synchronized the transit light at the corner of Ronald Reagan and 434 in Longwood. They give priority to 434 during the hours of 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., thus having to wait about five to seven minutes at that...
  • Airstrikes In Iraq Good For U.S.

    The United States has no doubt been war-weary since we pulled out of Iraq, and like most Americans, I would be strongly opposed to putting another young American on the ground to die in Iraq. However, a strictly aerial role to help stop the slaughter of...
  • Robert B. Reich: The disease of American democracy

    Americans are sick of politics. Only 13 percent approve of the job Congress is doing, a near-record low. The president's approval ratings are also in the basement. A large portion of the public doesn't even bother voting. Only 57.5 percent of eligible...
