Pruden: Drip, drip, drip becomes splash, splash, splash

By Wesley Pruden | The Democrats have got the Republican dilemma nailed, and the rattle and buzz over Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ tea cups is happy talk that the Grand Old Party looks stuck with a candidate the party doesn’t want. Mrs. Schultz is the chairman of the Democrats, put in charge of making Hillary’s path […]

Pruden: Let no child be left unconfused

By Wesley Pruden | Mae West, the famous philosopher of the boudoir, would hardly believe her fortune today. “So many men,” she once complained, “so little time.” She was the kind of girl who set out to “climb the ladder of success, wrong by wrong.” Now there’s such an abundance of choices in that even […]
