    Sen. Rand Paul, Time
    Let's hope cooler heads will ultimately prevail and we unleash a trade tsunami that washes the Castros once and for all into the sea. I grew up in a family that despised, not only communism, but collectivism, socialism and any “ism” that deprived the individual of his or her natural rights.
  • Al Sharpton, Civil Rights Fraud

    Michael Tracey, New York Daily News
    It’s no great shock when Al Sharpton’s antics send white conservatives into veritable rage spasms, but he’s finally ticked off the wrong crew. Young black activists from Ferguson had trekked to Washington for Sharpton’s “National Justice for All” march last Saturday, only to find themselves relegated to the backdrop of what looked more like an MSNBC stage production than any genuine showing of grass-roots resistance.

    This bipartisan legislation recalled the Sept. 1, 1914, death at the Cincinnati Zoo of Martha, the last of a population of ectopistes migratorius, once 3 billion-strong in North America. It hailed the work of Project Passenger Pigeon, devoted to making sure Martha did not die in vain.

    Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry, The Week
    have had the following experience more than once: I am speaking with a professional academic who is a liberal. The subject of the underrepresentation of conservatives in academia comes up. My interlocutor admits that this is indeed a reality, but says the reason why conservatives are underrepresented in academia is because they don't want to be there, or they're just not smart enough to cut it. I say: "That's interesting. For which other underrepresented groups do you think that's true?" An uncomfortable silence follows. I point this out not to score culture-war points, but because it's...
