Academia may now be beyond satire
The Chronicle of Higher Education, a window on the sometimes weird world of academia, recently revisited a hilarious intellectual hoax from 20 years ago. Reading the recollections of the perpetrator and of some who swallowed his gibberish is sobering.

How Trump is helping out China
Donald Trump has perhaps attacked no country as consistently as he has China. During his campaign, he thundered that China was “raping” the United States, “killing” it on trade and artificially depressing its currency to make its goods cheap. Since being elected, he has spoken to the leader of Taiwan and continued the bellicosity toward Beijing.

A path for our newest ex-president
There exists a famous photo of previous presidents gathered around Barack Obama in the Oval Office shortly before he began his first term. It’s as though they all dropped by to wish him luck.

Sessions is wrong pick for USAG
The Senate should reject the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions to be the next attorney general of the United States. He’s manifestly the wrong person to hold that job at this time.

Dylann Roof’s last calculating act
CHARLESTON, S.C. — If Death lingers in courtroom corridors awaiting sentences, this historic city’s federal courthouse was surely a top destination. On Tuesday, the Reaper’s patience was rewarded with the jury’s return of the death penalty for Dylann Roof.

Obama’s ‘Russian reset’ failure
President Barack Obama has finally had it with Russia. It only took eight years of cold reality — topped off by the Russian interference in the November election — to make the outgoing president almost cleareyed about the Kremlin.

Why the free market fails education
Donald Trump never tires of reminding us that he is a businessman, and in Betsy DeVos, he has nominated a secretary of Education who endorses a business model for improving elementary and secondary schooling. The problem is, it’s the wrong model.

Will Dylann Roof kill the death penalty?
It’s not difficult to develop a list of reasonable objections to capital punishment. We’ve never been very good at applying the ultimate penalty evenhandedly across categories of race, gender and, certainly, economic class.
