Pruden: When fear threatens good times in the friendly sky

By Wesley Pruden | Sometimes you have to wonder who’s in charge at Corporate Central. Certain airlines aren’t being very sympathetic to customers who are nervous about flying — no doubt unnecessarily — on the Boeing 737 Max 8 after two of them have crashed over the past five months. But airline passengers judge their […]

Pruden: No end of the Mueller minstrels in sight

By Wesley Pruden | Robert Mueller is said to be hitting his old textbooks from law school, perhaps an early chapter on how to keep the clock running on a rich client. Lawyers charge by the hour and a clever Blackstone can keep the meter running until the 12th of Never. A lot of Democrats […]

Pruden: The best and worst times for America

By Wesley Pruden | Not all ghouls live in the graveyard. Some of them are busy in the capital sunshine, making book on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s chances of returning to the U.S. Supreme Court and staying there to assist in the rendering of Donald Trump and his administration as dead as one of those graveyard […]
