The number of Americans without health insurance rose last year, the Census Bureau reported Tuesday, and Democrats say this justifies more government control. Yet the reality is more complicated—in particular, note that having a Medicaid card is no guarantee of great medical care.

My Facebook feed often carries pictures of children whom I don’t know and, in the case of sonograms, who aren’t even born yet. They are strangers to me, albeit cute strangers. If I’m very close to the sender, I’ll respond in a private message, “That’s the most beautiful baby I’ve ever seen,”…

It’s now been nearly a full generation since Sept. 11, 2001. There are people currently serving in the U.S. military who weren’t born when that act of evil took place—and the military still has thousands of troops in Afghanistan, the home base of the Taliban-supported al Qaida attack on the …

It is my opinion that the city of Janesville needs to start cracking down on vehicles that are running red lights on Milton Avenue. This has been a longtime occurrence that just keeps getting worse. I was driving on Milton Avenue the other day when the light turned yellow. I slowed down and …

The now-former head of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab went from hero to zero in a couple of news cycles. Once heralded for overseeing projects that use technology for social good, Joichi Ito resigned after revelations that he had tried to hide the source of donations fro…

Is the recent and rapid increase in the size of Americans’ waistlines a public health crisis or a social justice anti-discrimination issue? If our changing culture steers us toward the latter—and to some degree, it is—perhaps we’ll see fewer aggressive public health campaigns and more battle…

My friend Michelle’s preschool daughter has autism. Every morning Michelle brings her into school, where the staff takes the time to teach the kids with special needs how to get their boots off, how to stuff their mittens in their pockets, how to hang their coats on the pegs, etc., etc.

Midway between the second and third Democratic presidential debates, we should pause to take stock of what we’ve seen. Eight moderators have grilled more than 20 candidates for nine hours on national television. Yet, the most interesting part of it all is that more than two dozen candidates …

One wishes the media would stop using absurdly lazy phrases like “mandatory gun buybacks.” Unless the politician they’re talking about is in the business of selling firearms, it’s impossible for him to “buy back” anything. No government official—not Joe Biden, not Beto O’Rourke, not any of t…

Disgraced ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick was defrocked in February and ordered by Pope Francis to live a "life of prayer and penance." It seems the message did not get through. McCarrick, it turns out, is unrepentant.

There are alarming consequences for the survival of human beings and the success of the society they inhabit when the brain suffers without treatment. And it has become frighteningly common for Americans to find their way into despair and self-murder.

With Democrats pushing to implement the radical Green New Deal to allegedly “save the planet” from extinction, Americans should demand that every politician who backs it sign a pledge to dramatically reduce their own carbon footprint and live by the same rules and standards they want foisted…
