No matter how she tries to bury it, email scandal will continue to haunt Clinton

Despite assertions to the contrary and her well-received Benghazi panel testimony, the controversy over Hillary Rodham Clinton's email practices is not just an issue of interest to the reporters she wishes would stop peppering her with questions about the topic. It is an issue that gets right to the heart of a vital question: Shouldn't the American people trust the person they elect to sit in the Oval Office? Published October 25, 2015

On Labor Day, a search of the missing American worker

A striking facet of the economic downturn that started in 2008 and the "recovery" that continues today is the unprecedented slack in the American labor force. While statistical unemployment has dropped to pre-recession levels, labor force participation remains strikingly low and wages have remained stagnant — affecting consumer demand and economic growth.

Wealth building 101: Squirrel something away

One of the most important things a good business person can do in the early stages of his or her career is to squirrel something away.

What if black lives really mattered?

On the first anniversary of the death of Michael Brown, protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, took to the street with the urgent message that "black lives matter." The phrase has come to symbolize a movement largely focused around instances of alleged police abuse against black citizens, a problem that many in the movement see as a systemic lack of regard for the sanctity of black life by law enforcement.

In London, a tale of two Europes

My most recent trip to London was probably one of the most enjoyable and enlightening since I began travelling to Europe during the summers over 20 years ago. My previous trips had focused mostly on France and Italy, but as a Washingtonian and somewhat of a lover of history, visiting London had special significance. Published August 16, 2015

The evil in Planned Parenthood's aborted baby parts market

In a scene reminiscent of "Silence of the Lambs," a brilliant doctor sits at a table casually munching on salad and sipping red wine (a nice Chianti?) while salivating over the prospect of harvesting the "tender" livers of aborted babies. No, this is not a pitch for a new horror movie. This is actually what happened in a video recently released by the Center for Medical Progress, which has since been viewed millions of times on the Internet. Published August 2, 2015

A call to courage in the hour of evil

Among the nine innocents murdered at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston Carolina this past Wednesday was Pastor Clementa Pinckney. Reverend Pinckney is my cousin, and our parents lived just across the field growing up in Marion, South Carolina. Our families have remained very close over the years. I knew them before I knew the world. We were all molded from the same clay. Published July 27, 2015

In Charleston's response, hate is defeated by grace

One of the things that really stood out over the past few weeks in the aftermath of the tragedy in South Carolina was the incredible grace with which the community of Charleston has borne both its own anguish as well as the intense international media circus that has enveloped the town. The city's response stands in stark contrast to some of protests and outright chaos that occurred in places such as Ferguson and Baltimore. Published July 26, 2015
