William Shatner and Where No Man Has Gone Before Illustration by Alexander Hunter/The Washington Times

Why William Shatner’s space voyage matters

In a world where we’re told to fear a virus that’s almost 100% survivable for healthy people under the retirement age and warning labels terrify us at every turn, we recently watched 90-year-old William Shatner launching into space.

D.C. officials are facing several deadlines — all of their own making — and it doesn’t matter whether they’re wearing digital time pieces, showing off a Piaget or checking the clock on their government-issued laptop.

Death awaits in Europe this winter

As Team Biden prepares to go to Glasgow at the end of October, it is worth noting that more than a few people in Europe will likely die this winter because of their governments’ fixation on climate change.

Nothing superior about far left

The term elites should be banned in reference to those on the political left ("'Show me an elitist, and I'll show you a loser,'" Web, Oct. 18). Who came up with this ridiculously inaccurate label in the first place, and why is it perpetuated? Why are looney liberals called "elites"? What is elite about the inability to think rationally? What is elite about a complete lack of common sense? How does the lack of those essential personal qualities make these people superior to any other? Finally, how can anyone be considered elite for no other reason than their extreme-left politics?

Biden's 'lead touch'

"Biden's Supreme Court commission splits over court-packing proposals" (Web, Oct. 15) is a result we should have seen coming.

Food, shelter hardly 'elitist'

The problem with elitists is that they only pal around with other rare-air breathers ("'Show me an elitist, and I'll show you a loser,'" Web, Oct. 18). They scratch each other's backs in a mutual-admiration society where groupthink is the catechism and the naysayer is banished. Elitists comprise a not-so-secret society of the self-satisfied.
