President Donald Trump would benefit from talking with veterans about the realities of war when he speaks at the national VFW convention Tuesday in Kansas City. The insights would be good for the saber-rattling president to hear.
Columnist Mary Sanchez is the daughter of an immigrant. If her grandmother and then-infant father had come to the U.S. from Mexico during President Donald Trump’s administration, how would their story have ended?
Last week, the Texas Board of Education took a step to remove the pioneer from the social studies curriculum. Keller’s story provides an irreplaceable lifelong lesson of optimism, hard work and community inclusion.
The choice will be whether to block the rise of a widely respected judge based on something he might (or might not) have done as a juvenile, or to promote to the highest court a man accused of trying to rape an underage girl.
The vagueness of Ford’s story isn’t proof that it didn’t happen. If anything, the reverse: Liars tend to provide an excessive wealth of detail. But the lack of detail does make it essentially impossible for Kavanaugh to defend himself.
I wish we could agree that Kaepernick’s decision to take a knee has nothing to do with disrespecting our flag as some like to argue and has everything to do with respecting African Americans’ right to protest police brutality.

The problem is not anti-intellectualism but the “un-intellectualism” of a growing cohort of people who, lacking talents for or training in scholarship, find vocations in micromanaging student behavior.
