Sending my regrets to William and Kate

First, let me start off by saying that there is no chance that I will ever wake up at the crack of dawn to watch Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding next April.

Thought for tomorrow

When I was a younger man, I believed that progress was inevitable -- that the world would be better tomorrow and better still the day after. The thunder of war, the stench of concentration camps, the mushroom cloud of the atomic bomb are, however, not conducive to optimism. All our tomorrows for years to come will be clouded by the threat of a terrible holocaust.

Buck up for safety

Everyone have a pleasant Thanksgiving and safe travels? No underwear bombers? Good, glad to hear it. Now, say your thanks to the sleepless Transportation Security Administration administrator John Pistole and his agency.

Modern problems: Part Tres

'Modern Bride'

WASHINGTON -- I've been wallowing in exit polls and poring over debt- reduction plans, so perhaps you'll forgive a brief walk on the low-brow side.

Season of giving means many things

With Thanksgiving Day only hours behind us -- which I'm guessing is the equivalent of a decade in "shopping years" -- the Christmas holiday season is officially underway.

Maybe elites can make marriage cool again

It's hard to figure us Yanks out, my British friends say. We still go simply gaga over royal weddings like the upcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Yet we historically rejected royalty -- and increasingly we're even rejecting marriage.

These things for which I'm thankful

During this holiday season, I'm thankful for:

In no particular order ... Gaga, coffee, Brooks

Yeah, yeah, I know it doesn't take too much mental capacity to conjure up what you're thankful for and put it down on paper. But, frankly, I don't care if it's a cop-out column. Here's my 2010 Thank List, in no order at all:

A scan too far

NEW YORK -- In the accelerating debate about airport pat-downs that feel like a clumsy third date and body scans that border on Peeping Tom shows, it's hard to find a sane place to land.

Now more than ever ... shop locally

As the Christmas shopping season approaches, we should all be reminded of just how important shopping at home really is. Studies show that money spent at independently owned local businesses stays in a community, multiplying as it circulates.

The legend of Lloyd Seay

Their histories, accurate and complete, are lost to time and buried with them and those who knew them. I wish I knew more for their stories would read like a page-turning novel.

Star Trek ... in the news!

OK, OK, yes I'm talking Star Trek again, but hang on, this is really more about newspapers than Star Trek. All right, maybe 50-50.

Not lost, just seeing the sights

In 1964, the World's Fair was in New York City. I was 6 years old and went with my parents and older sister to the fair. New York City seemed like a different world to a little boy from Dexter, Mo., but it was all good. We rode on subway trains, we had cheeseburgers in a diner where the staff had funny accents and rode the Staten Island Ferry and saw the Statue of Liberty. I saw a billboard that had the Marlboro man blowing smoke out of his mouth. We were living it up.

51 days in a car with boys

If you have a serious case of wanderlust -- an insatiable desire to see new places and experience unique customs -- then you'll probably envy Alisa Johnson of Seattle, Wash.

Is it hypocritical for a really, really rich person to object to rising inequality?

The hand that rocks the ballot box

In their denouncements of the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling, Hillary Clinton and other Democrats have been accused of pandering to single women -- the so-called "Beyoncé voter" demographic, as one Fox News commentator sniggered.

S.C., immigration and ‘Us vs. Them’

First things first: every nation must secure and control its borders. This is not political rhetoric or an ideological judgment but a simple geo-political fact.
