COLUMN ONE: The art of doing nothing

posted: 02/07/2016 2:27 a.m. Discuss

For those of us who prefer a stable economy, one that's running slow but steady, instead of going regularly from boom to the inevitable bust, everything's just fine, thank you. The process of Creative Destruction--or is it Destructive Creation?--goes merrily on. Some investors prosper, others fail. All on their own as the free market continues to determine their fate. All the while inflation remains low, the dollar stable, and prospects fair-to-middlin'. We've survived a lot worse.

"Practice cringing. That's the first step, Ghoulsby. Don't ever let them suspect you know what's going on or the game is up. Let 'em think your middle name is Stupidity."

"I believe life should be savored rather than lengthened, and I am ready to fight the misanthropes among us who are trying to make me switch." --Florence King, January 5, 1936 to January 6, 2016

COLUMNISTS: PAUL GREENBERG: Radical as conservative

posted: 01/15/2016 3:25 a.m. Comments 5

History is up to its old tricks again. The radical agitator of one generation becomes the conservative icon of another. With each year that passes, it becomes clearer that, despite his dramatic impact, Martin Luther King Jr. was a familiar type: the American conservative. That is, someone dedicated to preserving and expanding the gains of a liberal revolution.

Columnist: PAUL GREENBERG: Message from a minor god

Whether we're talking about a midsummer night's dream or an American presidential campaign, what difference can it make to one whose place in the Pantheon is assured?

Column One: The key to it all

posted: 01/10/2016 2:22 a.m. Comments 9

What is this thing called a liberal education that we're always hearing about--and some of us never tire preaching about with your more than kind indulgence?
