U.S. Open: Kaymer still has plenty of work ahead

Too bad the Fox Sports contract to televise the U.S. Open doesn’t start until next year. Greg Norman would probably have a lot to say about the difficulty of playing with a big lead on the weekend at a major championship.

TYRRELL: Paul Ryan’s budget express

- The Washington Times

As America rings up another $3 tril- lion-plus budget - almost a historic peacetime 25 percent of gross national product (GDP) - and borrows another $1.3 trillion to pay for it, one should not be surprised that the usual mob of special pleaders is fuming at anyone who has the temerity to suggest a sane alternative.

THAYER: Preserving our nuclear deterrence

- The Washington Times

Last week’s leak from the Pentagon that the United States is considering reducing its nuclear arsenal from the 1,550 re- quired by the New START to as few as 300 provokes a critical question: Is the United States tempting fate with such drastic cuts?

EDITORIAL: You’ve gotta be sheeting me

The Washington Times

Sometimes it’s hard to take America’s most populous state seriously. In recent days, the California Legislature has devoted attention to issues such as the appropriate color of BB guns and the size of the font used for mandatory “Hello, my name is” tags for initiative signature collectors. No matter is too insignificant to escape the attention of Golden State solons, who held a hearing Thursday considering the weighty question of bedsheet safety.
