Wesley Pruden is, as usual, correct in his recent piece describing the just-initiated negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. The talks are all "process" and no "peace" — all form and no substance ("More fake peace for the Middle East," Commentary, Aug. 2).
David Keene, a trusted adviser to presidents, a longtime champion of personal liberty and one of conservatism's most respected voices, was appointed Sunday as the new opinion editor of The Washington Times.
It doesn't matter whether the Republican-led House passes good, workable immigration legislation.
I am grateful that Wesley Pruden featured my story in his thought-provoking piece, "The death penalty is not what it used to be" (Page A4, Friday). Indeed, the death penalty is coming to an end, and its death rattle can be heard around the world like a crack of lightning.
Gus Constantine, a longtime editor in The Washington Times newsroom whose passion for knowledge was matched only by his love for family, died Jan. 29. He was 84.

Tony Blankley, a noted conservative author and commentator and former editorial page editor of The Washington Times, died late Saturday, according to family sources. He was 63 and had been battling stomach cancer.

It's no mystery the "tax-eaters" in Wesley Pruden's recent column roughly correspond to the Democratic base, whereas the "taxpayers" align more with the GOP ("Waiting for the enemy to blink on the debt limit," Politics, Tuesday).
I've been on a mission to stamp out a common bit of misinformation concerning possible Republican presidential hopeful Sarah Palin, repeated by Wesley Pruden, a journalist I much admire ("She gets it right, you betcha," Politics, Tuesday).
Dean Faulkner Wells, the last survivor of her generation of the Faulkners of Mississippi, regards the worst and the best in her life as having happened four months before she was born.
I enjoyed Wesley Pruden's Tuesday column ("A flirtation with Chicken Little," Pruden on Politics, Nation) but I have a nit to pick. Though no sane person denies the lefty looniness of Portland, Ore., and San Francisco, please be aware that Ithaca, N.Y., is the "most enlightened" city in the country.

"Ben Carson's straightforward and unadorned prose will appeal to the frontal lobes, where thinking takes place, and leaves the cheap pandering to the emotions to lesser columnists. This eminent neurosurgeon said he thought retirement would mean playing golf and learning to play the organ, and we're pleased that he put away his drivers, putters and pipe organs to write for us," said Wesley Pruden, editor in chief emeritus of The Times, and steward of the editorial page and Commentary section.
As columnist Wesley Pruden has pointed out in this newspaper, Mr. Reid's rough treatment of Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley's border-security amendment speaks volumes.
