Last week our president and commander-in-chief responded to the latest wave of terrorist attacks around the world by--calling a seminar.

Column one: Distant but still present

Washington's birthday has always been a movable feast, for he was born in a kind of time warp, with the calendar changing from Old to New Style as he aged. So his birthday changed with it. Until today it is February 22nd and even now his official holiday has become one of those three-day specials.

Columnists: The forgotten prophetess

The first domino--Greece--in the long row comprising the European Union is wobbling and about to fall, and could take the whole EU and its common currency, the euro, down with it one day.

Column One: Old Nick heard from

(With apologies to C.S. Lewis) My dear Wormwood, These days I scarcely know where to turn next in the public prints, there's such an abundance of cheery news from the upper regions. Clearly you have things well in hand up there. War and the threat of war, aggression everywhere and suffering galore to go with it. Diplomats holding endless meetings that amount to a green light for more invasions and ever more power for those out to squelch freedom in the world. What fun.

Columnists: The key to it all

An Italian exchange student once asked me what he should know in order to understand America. The best I could come up with on the spot was the U.S. Constitution, jazz, and baseball.

Columnists: The end of the affair

posted: 02/11/2015 3:04 a.m. Comment 1

The message on the phone was there waiting for me after a long day and longer week at work. The news was sad but not unexpected. Like the death of a dear aunt who had been putting up a good fight for years. The time to let her go in peace had finally arrived.

Column One: Shut up, they explain

Paul Greenberg, the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial page editor of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, is taking some time off. The original version of this column appeared May 14, 2014.

Columnists: The Cossacks are back

posted: 02/04/2015 3:05 a.m. Comment 1

My mother was confused again. As she regularly was by this strange country and haven, where they did things differently from the old country, thank God. So she asked my older brother to explain something to her. "Irving," she was saying, "I know the Army fights on the land, the Navy on the sea, and the Air Force in the air. But what do the Marines do?"

Column One: Patient thoughts

Report from the waiting room: Down the hall in this great maze of a modern medical center there is another clinic, one advertised with a big sign pointing the direction there and saying something about beauty. It apparently specializes in cosmetic surgery. It's wearing enough to be here arranging for necessary if not urgent surgery. Why would anyone be here just to get a bigger bustline or have a nose straightened? It's a mystery to me.

Columnists: Lost words, lost worlds

It's a slim little book that had a powerful impact as this country and the rest of the world hovered on the edge of war in 1939: Mrs. Miniver by Jan Struther, which began as a collection of short newspaper columns in the Times about the daily life of an English household in suburban London. Then it became a popular novel, and eventually a classic movie. (Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon.) The movie was soon recognized by both British and American leaders--Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill--as an invaluable aid in mobilizing American opinion in favor of entering the war on the Allied side.
