    Mercy for the mentally ill
    Is someone who was diagnosed with schizophrenia years before committing murder sane enough to be sentenced to death? The government thinks so in the case of Scott L. Panetti, 56, who will die Wednesday by lethal injection in Texas unless Gov. Rick Perry...
  • Gruber flap reopens not-so-old wounds

    Gruber flap reopens not-so-old wounds
    I understand we've turned the page to the next controversy -- Mr. Obama's unconstitutional immigration pander -- but I'd like to dwell a little longer on the previous travesty. Obama administration health-care consultant Jonathan Gruber was discovered...
  • King Obama's edict is a mess

    King Obama's edict is a mess
    Maybe President Barack Obama is just trolling? For those who don't know, in Internet parlance, trolling is an effort to elicit outrage from a specific group or the public generally. As the always useful — but not always G-rated, or spell-checked...

    Obama appears to be seeking a more forceful Defense secretary
    As he searches for his fourth Defense secretary in six years, President Obama appears to be looking for a more forceful, articulate military leader to navigate the tough but limited wars that are likely to consume much of his final two years in office....
