Pruden: Hillary as ladies’ fashion leader. Who knew?

By Wesley Pruden | :Nobody has accused Hillary Clinton of setting an example of how to dress for success, and certainly not for fun. She’s clearly no Melania Trump. But she may be assisting the Chinese in bringing back “the Mao suit.” She probably shouldn’t expect a standing ovation from men. That should suit her, […]

Pruden: Could the Donald get lost in the rigging?

By Wesley Pruden | Donald Trump says the November election may be “rigged” against him, and nearly half the voters in one public-opinion poll agrees with him. Even more voters than that say they’re not confident their votes will be accurately counted. Hillary Clinton professes to be worried that Vladimir Putin will hack into the […]

Nothing before was anything like the present age, nor is it possible that anything in the future will surpass it. We expected echoes of that in the Monday […]

By Wesley Pruden | Charlotte is the conversation we’re getting about race in America, with rioting, death and looting, encouraged by the noise of the mob, the purple rhetoric of certain newspapers, bloody mayhem on the television screen, and encouragement, no doubt unintended, by the president of the United States. It’s a carnival out there, […]
