David Hegg: Don’t take down a fence until you know why it was put up

G. K. Chesterton was one of the world's greatest thinkers and writers. It is often said that he said something brilliant about almost everything in the first decades of the 20th century. One of my favorite "Chestertonisms" is this one: "Don't ever take a fence down until you know the reason why it was put up."

Jonathan Kraut: Political rhetoric, wasted wind

It is time to get prepared for an upcoming year of political rhetoric and wasted wind by our presidential hopefuls. GOP candidates for the 2016 presidency are stacking up like an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast at IHOP with eight at last count. Three Democratic so far candidates have formally announced their intentions.

David Hegg: Of coffee shops and life

If you're like me, you spend some time each week standing in line to order your favorite coffee drink. But, if you're also like me, you've discovered the coffee shop isn't really selling coffee.

Our View: Drone decision has far-reaching ramifications

The tunnel vision that results from the federal government's leviathan bureaucracy was evident earlier this month when the Federal Aviation Administration issued a policy statement on the use of drones that directly violates the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

Donna Brazile: More than just remembrance

This Memorial Day, with David Letterman retiring the week before the holiday and the recent death of legendary bluesman B.B. King, I began to think about ways to honor our servicemen and women beyond the traditional parades and prayers of Memorial Day weekend.

Proper honor and remembrance for the real heroes of our country

This weekend we pause to honor the memory of those who gave their lives in defense of America during our many armed conflicts. Originally proposed and celebrated in 1868, the day was known as Decoration Day. General John Logan commanded that the day was "for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country …" President Lyndon Johnson conferred national holiday status on the day in 1966.

Kevin Korenthal: Regions need to unite against train

Last month, the City of Santa Clarita in partnership with surrounding cities and towns hosted a community meeting to solicit support for an effort to approach the local (not so) high-speed rail alignment issue from a regional perspective. This rally was the result of an evolving set of alignments being proposed for the section of rail from Palmdale to Burbank. The City of Santa Clarita has maintained that since it does not receive a stop it should not be adversely affected by the system.
