It's about more than the sweatpants

As my hubby and I pulled up to the front door of the fancy five-star steakhouse that a friend had given us a gift certificate for, we were shocked by the sign that awaited us.

Ousting the ayatollahs

The Iranian election of 2009, re-electing President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was so obviously fixed that the results ignited a near-revolt that threatened the terror-sponsoring regime of the ayatollahs.

Pumpkin time for Robert Mueller

Coins have two sides. So do most decisions evaluating risk. Look before you leap, but he who hesitates is lost. People who drive instead of fly because they think flying is dangerous haven't looked at the other side of the coin: statistics clearly show that flying is much safer than driving.

Trash talking about Donald Trump

I will never forget my senior year in high school. We were playing our bitter and highly-rated rival in football and in the week before the game, the other team was trash talking us nonstop. They said we were too fat and too slow and too small to even keep the game close. "You suck, we're great, that's why we are going downstate," was their abusive chant. Then we went out and beat them something like 24-0. It was sweet and it sure shut them up.

'You don't get to make up your own Jesus'

Piper: It's not about gay or straight, it's about the definition of what it means to be human. Even Gore Vidal said, "there is no more such a thing as a homosexual person than there is a heterosexual person, these are behavioral adjectives." We are not defined by our desires. It's about our behavior. It's not about our being.

Baby, it's cold outside

The brutal cold weather making everybody miserable almost everywhere -- the mercury has fallen to the low 70s even in Southern California and into the low 60s in Miami. It has to be blamed on something or somebody, so why not blame it on global warming?

The take-no-prisoners war

Neither man nor rat gives quarter in their ancient war on each other. Neither side takes prisoners, and after all these years there's no winner, though rats have survived. The District of Columbia, which has rats aplenty, is deploying a new and lethal weapon with the hope that springs eternal.

More than a tempest in a teapot

There's nothing new about globalism. Ocean and desert trade routes brought the silk and spices of the east to ancient Rome. Hellenistic culture -- admittedly at sword point -- reached as far as the Indian subcontinent thanks to Alexander the Great's endless lust for new lands to conquer.

'Transgendering' is the annihilator

According to the recent article "Media now resorts to extreme narrative: Trump's 'insane'" (Web, Jan. 3), Tim Graham, director of media analysis at the Media Research Center, recently cited an MSNBC report that claimed President Trump's "profound sexual and masculine insecurities are literally threatening to annihilate the planet."

Doubting agencies is security risk

President Trump continues to believe Russian President Vladimir Putin's comments, and he continues to question U.S. intelligence agencies' analysis of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Naturally, he does not want the validity of his election questioned, but his criticism of our intelligence agencies and the FBI poses a risk to national security.
