They were last airborne on July 19, 1967: the four-man Navy crew from the USS Hornet that took off in an SH-3A Sea King helicopter to rescue a downed pilot in Ha Nam Province, North Vietnam. Hit by anti-aircraft gunfire, the helicopter crashed and the men never returned. Nearly 46 years later, the pilot and his crew will be united again for a final time.
I am appalled that renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson was forced to withdraw from a speaking opportunity because "he believes in traditional marriage" and mentioned homosexuality along with bestiality and pedophilia ("The intolerant left," Comment & Analysis, April 15). Those who have shunned Dr. Carson might one day need his medical expertise to save their child, no matter how he may have been conceived. Would Dr. Carson refuse medical aid if the parents did not believe in traditional marriage?
You can hear a lot of big talk about tolerance and diversity from people who hang out in the ivory tower, but they rarely want to set an example. In the halls of academe, the only acceptable ideology is stunted liberalism.
Among the people who "do more before breakfast than most others do all day," Dr. Benjamin S. Carson, head of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins is atop the list. What he does really is brain surgery, and not just brain surgery, but brain surgery on infants, the most delicate of patients.
The conservative rising star Dr. Ben Carson said on a Tuesday talk show that critics won't shut him up and that among the most vicious of his attackers were white liberals.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that there are times when an individual's rights should be infringed upon, and the Obama administration came under fire as the Supreme Court heard arguments in landmark gay marriage cases.
The recall, the demonstrations, the rogue charm? It will be on book shelves in the fall. Here comes "Unintimidated: A Governor's Story and a Nation's Challenge," penned by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. But wait. A memoir of intent such as this could equal White House aspirations.
I'm an 86-year-old white guy. I think President Obama is a decent person and a good family man but the worst president I have seen elected in my lifetime ("Cosby does race relations a disservice," Letters, Thursday). Mr. Obama has said President George W. Bush was incompetent and unpatriotic because the national debt increased $4 trillion during his eight-year presidency. What have we gotten since?
Dr. Ben Carson, the Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon who has become a conservative icon, says he will retire from medicine this year because, he said, "there are so many more things that can be done."
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie may not have been invited to speak at this year's Conservative Political Action Conference — but his name has made CPAC's presidential straw poll as one of the 23 listed hopefuls to be the GOP's nominee in 2016.
It was almost inevitable. Dr. Ben Carson will be a featured speaker at the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference in mid-March, praised by American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas as someone deeply in touch with the fiscal and social challenges of the age, who nonetheless "represents the optimism and hope of the future of the conservative movement."
Dr. Ben Carson of Johns Hopkins University made a splash at the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this month with a speech he might not have given had he honored multiple requests by the Obama administration to turn over the full text beforehand.
Dr. Ben Carson, who made nationwide headlines for remarks during the National Prayer Breakfast that flew in the face of President Obama's economic policies, said Sunday he has no regrets.
Dr. Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, was an overnight sensation with his speech to the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this month.
Dr. Ben Carson, Presidential Medal of Freedom winner and legendary neurosurgeon, is now in the spotlight for his keynote address to the National Prayer Breakfast on Feb. 7. It's not brain surgery to figure out why.
