Pruden: A riot that dares not speak its name

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, […]

Pruden: Reading the handwriting on the wall

By Wesley Pruden | Everything old becomes new, if you wait long enough.

He let the questions fester for years before putting them to […]
