Time to decide what Congress is for

"Refudiate," a word Sarah Palin created by conflating "refute" and "repudiate" in a Twitter tweet, has entered the New Oxford American Dictionary. It could also serve as her party's new congressional battle cry.

Mill family sacrificed more than most in World War II

What is the worst ordeal a family can endure? What event could cause you the most anxiety, stress, or heartache? For one local family, the heartache was tripled in just a few days.

Ever wonder why college tuition is going up so rapidly while the economy is in the doldrums and inflation is non-existent?

In memoir, Bush spins fiscal fiction

It was, or so I thought, a dandy column idea: an imaginary, missing chapter of George W. Bush's "Decision Points," in which the former president would admit to having made the wrong call on taxes.

Slowing down and counting my blessings

As I sit down to write this column, I still can't believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. This year has flown by much faster than any other year I can remember.

Dude, ya think...

So here we are, a few weeks after one of the weirdest election cycles of all time. The optimist in me says, "Oh, look! The people are waking up and realizing they do have the power after all."

A GOP not for whites only

What's the most overlooked, underappreciated story from the midterm elections? My nominee would be the surprising new racial and ethnic diversity of Republican congressional and gubernatorial winners -- even if we don't see as much diversity among the party's voters.

Column: Avenatti’s white man offense and red-hot lies
