North Korea is marking Kim Jong Un's birthday Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017 in a decidedly low-key manner. Though the young leader's birthday is well-known throughout the country, it has yet to be celebrated with the kind of adulatory festivities that accompany the birthdays of his late grandfather and father.

A president for a day (maybe)

David Rice Atchison was a president (if that's what he was) that the sorehead Democrats, stewing in the sour juices of contempt and frustration, could love. Atchison might, or might not, have been president for a day but he's a footnote to history that almost nobody remembers.

While elites fiddle, Russia advances in East Europe

Not many Americans can locate Moldova, a tiny former Soviet republic with a mostly ethnic Romanian population bordered by Ukraine and Romania, on a map. Even fewer could tell you that Moldova was once part of Romania and won its independence with the fall of the Soviet Union, only to have Russia carve out a separatist ethnic Russian enclave called Transdniester, complete with Russian troops and recognized as independent only by the Kremlin.

BOOK REVIEW: 'Burning Bright'

He calls the marauding bear Mr. Gritz and the bear would probably like to call him dinner. The woman who rescues him is an expert with a bow and arrow and her father is known as the Yeti.

Wasting time, resource availability

As a geologist who spent years exploring for hard minerals, I believe we must ask ourselves what would happen if our sources of non-fuel mineral commodities -- the necessary ingredients of most manufactured products -- were cut off.

Policy end good for Cubans

Mr. Antonio Bened bemoans the repeal of the "wet feet, dry feet" immigration policy by President Obama ("Obama's betrayal of the Cuban people," Web, Jan. 17). Said policy puts Cubans who reach U.S. soil on a fast track to permanent residency. He and I disagree on this issue.
