Sowell: A Clash of police policies

By Thomas Sowell | Amid the rioting in Milwaukee, there is also a clash between two leading lawmen there — Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and the city of Milwaukee’s Chief of Police Edward Flynn.

Williams: College campus lunacy

By Walter E. Williams | As the fall semester begins, parents, students, taxpayers and donors should be made aware of official college practices that should disgust us all.
