                                    I take no issue with Charles Misak’s explanatory descriptions of capitalism and socialism but, nonetheless, I believe it necessary to elaborate on the subject as a result of his final comment that he is amazed “anyone would advance it (socialism) as a viable economic system.” I agree that socialism,...

                                        I remember when news of the Columbine shooting erupted in 1999. I sat in the living room tears flowing, mouth agape and chest tightening sorrowfully.

Trouble is, most American cars in China are made there. No tariffs. Trump whiffed again. Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminum are the same. Tariffs with a few exceptions:...

                                                Sometime in 2017, a suggestion appeared in the Gazette’s Last Word that Colonial Williamsburg ought to be shut down due to its “legacy of slavery.” That gave rise to considerable thought. What is the legacy of slavery? There is, of course, no one answer. The easiest answer, and the one most understandable,...
