Pruden: Saudis’ insult to Michelle goes unchallenged by Obama

By Wesley Pruden Barack Obama had a high old time in India and Saudi Arabia. The first lady, not so much. The trip was down hill after New Delhi. A good time in Saudi Arabia was not had by all India, a land of magic and mystery, put on a show just by being a […]

Pruden: The Democratic assault on free speech

By Wesley Pruden Everybody’s for free speech — until somebody says something he doesn’t like. But the genius of the First Amendment is that it is so direct and plain that even a lawyer or a judge can understand it.

Galvanized can be a good thing only if the galvanizee stays galvanized. The record is not encouraging. September 11 galvanized the world, a date that, like December 7, would live in […]
