Pruden: Big media’s sad and extremely horrible week

By Wesley Pruden | Newspapermen were rarely whiners. Whining became fashionable only after “journalists” overran newsrooms. The best newspapermen, so the folk wisdom went, were Southerners, Jews and the Irish. Southerners loved the words and the occasions to tell stories, the Jews for the opportunity to do public good, and the Irish for the bottle […]

Pruden: Al Franken and Democratic strategy for 2018

By Wesley Pruden | Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party. Anyone who ever learned to use a typewriter (millennials can ask Mom what “a typewriter” was) remembers that aphorism, and Monday good ol’ Al Franken finally got the message. However, he only said he would […]

You can’t keep up with the serial sexual offenders without a scorecard, and the list grows longer every day and all the claims won’t fit on one scorecard. Seekers of cash settlements are advised to not take checks, and hurry to the bank and […]

Pruden: Gropergate! The halls of Congress under siege!

By Wesley Pruden | When I was a young reporter on a certain newspaper in the South, fresh on a new job, I took a fancy to a sweet and pretty young woman (that’s how we talked in those days) working on what newspapers quaintly called “the Society pages.” One day one of the older […]
