  • Deep justice in Ferguson

    Black 'hood, white cops. Get on the sidewalk! And so it begins, and begins, and begins. An African-American boy dies for walking in the street -- yet one more insanely small transgression. Protesters cry for justice. The legal bureaucracy hunkers down,...

  • Interstate route-markers available in two models

    Q: I don't know why I am taking notice to such things, so bear with me on this. I know this changed several years ago, but do you happen to know why newer interstate signs no longer have the state name displayed on them? There are still a few of the old...

    Just how terrifying is the Sunni Muslim extremist group that's taken over a huge swath of territory in northern Iraq? Here are some clues: After seizing Iraq's second-largest city, the group, known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS,...
  • It's too late, Mr. Kerry

    Secretary of State John Kerry thinks Iraq can be saved with a new prime minister to take the place of Nouri al-Maliki. The new one would make friends with the alienated and hostile Sunni citizens that make up some 40 percent of the country's population,...
  • A real risk of war

    Vladimir Putin's annexation of Crimea and threat to Ukraine are causing damage he perhaps did not anticipate: disorientation of the United States and profound division in Europe, especially in Germany, and in NATO. A real risk of war. American...
