Commentary: John McNamara's legacy will live on with friends, family and UMd

John McNamara sized up the new guy. Leaning in, he delivered unsolicited advice. "You know, you really don't need the tie." Maybe a month later, he caught me on casual Friday. This time, the offending article was a lime green polo shirt. "You buy that in the men's department?" he deadpanned past my desk at our old building on Capital Drive. He never broke stride sauntering to the sports ... Read more

Commentary: What Kavanaugh could change

After a buildup worthy of a master of reality TV, President Trump has nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Anthony M. Kennedy's retirement. This continues a run of almost 50 consecutive years when the court has had a majority of Republican appointees. Many commentators will rush to cast this nomination solely in terms of what it means for the rights ... Read more

Commentary: Trump's NATO hostility is a GOP tradition

In the new superhero movie "Incredibles 2," the baby, Jack-Jack, freaks out his family when he morphs into a destructive demon. NATO members who have been on the receiving end of Donald Trump's blasts as he prepared for a summit in Brussels - "we're schmucks for paying for the whole thing" - seem to view the president with similar emotions. Trump's jabs about defense spending, immigration and ... Read more

Commentary: Trump is misjudging China's resolve on trade

Donald Trump's strategy in his trade war with China boils down to inflicting sufficient economic pain to eventually force Beijing's leaders to make the concessions the president wants - whatever those may be. That's the obvious purpose of the tariffs he plans to impose on another $200 billion of Chinese-made goods. Trump may find with China, though, that there's an inverse relationship between ...

Commentary: Do cruel and carcinogenic foods deserve a national observance?

Just as people would be outraged if the tobacco industry claimed that September were "National Cigarette Month" or if dog breeders declared December "National Puppy Mill Month," we should be appalled that the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council has deemed July "National Hot Dog Month." Apparently, the council thinks cruelty to animals, environmental pollution and life-threatening health ... Read more

Commentary: Judging a president by his staff

For as long as there has been a Capitol Hill, a secret list has circulated informally among staffers there bearing the names of the most difficult members of Congress to work for. Any staffer today who has worked on the Hill long enough is familiar with the list and the names that perennially appear there. They are exchanged in hushed whispers over coffee in Rayburn Cafeteria, they bounce and ... Read more

Commentary: Abolish ICE? Let's think this one through

Some on the far left aren't content to simply protest Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. They want to abolish it. Indeed, getting rid of ICE altogether is quickly becoming a litmus test for politicians on the left. But what would it actually mean to abolish ICE? Let's looks at ICE's three missions: preventing terrorism, investigating illegal movement of people and goods, and ... Read more
