THOMAS: The enduring legacy of Anne Frank

On the day I visit the Anne Frank House, which is actually the family’s hiding place atop Anne’s father’s business, the wait to get in is as long as three hours. Such is the attraction of this historic site, 53 years after it was opened to the public.

ROB JENKINS: Progress toward what?

Perhaps you’ve noticed that I avoid referring to leftists as “liberals,” a term that suggests open-mindedness and generosity. Not to be unkind, but those are not qualities I normally associate with the left, unless you count being generous with other people’s money.

DARRELL HUCKABY: Store-bought toys can't outshine imagination

There are toys all over my living room floor — in the corners, under the desk and right smack dab in the middle of the floor, on a direct path between me and the remote control. We are talking about large, elaborate, die cut compilations of plastic in bright primary colors.

DARRELL HUCKABY: Five reminders that we should cherish life

I heard about it first on Facebook, speaking now of the horrifically tragic accident that occurred on Interstate 16 between Statesboro and Savannah Wednesday morning.

JACK SIMPSON: This criminal case sealed with a kiss

Even if the story is old and somewhat familiar, I enjoy retelling it if it contains poetic justice. A French reporter named Henry Samuel Paris told this one about a jewel thief named Pierre. I suppose you could say that Pierre was a bad guy, but at least he had compassion, something not always displayed by thieves.

DARRELL HUCKABY: Random thoughts about our strange times

What is the world coming to? I can’t imagine how things can get much stranger or people more ornery.

DARRELL HUCKABY: Sometimes it's the little things that mean the most

I love to travel. I love getting home even more.

DARRELL HUCKABY: Scenes to ponder from Istanbul

I am happy to report that we had a safe visit to Ephesus and Istanbul and are, or will be, by the time you read this, safely on American shores.

JACK SIMPSON: A call for action

Everyone knows police have a dangerous job and are often verbally and physically abused not only by politicians and criminals but by some members of the community. Unfortunately, in the heat of battle, some officers make mistakes in judgment and this reflects adversely upon police everywhere.

ROB JENKINS: Fun tax facts to celebrate the end of income tax season

“April is the cruelest month,” wrote the poet T.S. Eliot, and indeed it is—but not, perhaps, for the reasons he envisioned.

MARK SHIELDS: The Clinton record unmasked

About the time the Dodgers abandoned Brooklyn for Los Angeles, my savvy precinct captain drilled into all her workers this rule: A week is a lifetime in politics, and a month is an eternity.

DARRELL HUCKABY: World travels a reminder of where the heart lies

I never visited big cities when I was growing up in Porterdale — unless you count Macon. I don’t.

KRAUTHAMMER: The Iran deal: What we’ve given up

Obama imagines that this deal will bring Iran in from the cold, tempering its territorial ambitions and ideological radicalism. But this defies logic.

ROB JENKINS: Left's philosophy: Academic freedom for me but not for thee

Another political correctness tempest in a teapot, brought to us once again by the hysterical mainstream media, sprang up this week in Dublin, Georgia, where a middle school teacher reportedly told her students that President Obama and his supporters are not Christians.

DARRELL HUCKABY: Being prone to procrastination has its problems

I am bad to procrastinate. Always have been. When I was in the eleventh grade I missed a chance to see Pistol Pete Maravich play because I had put off doing a project for Mrs. Meyer’s world history class until the last minute and had to stay home and make a poster about the Middle Ages.

JACK SIMPSON: Too much of a good thing

When I came South I was no real stranger to tea. Sweet tea is full of calories and probably is not all that much better than soda if one is interested in healthy eating!
