End the White House Hypocrites Ball

End the White House Hypocrites Ball

The annual bacchanal of self-importance and self-righteous celebration that is the White House Correspondents Association Dinner should have been laid to rest years ago. It was never a noble idea, no matter how nostalgic its defenders are for the days when...

Scranton School Board must come clean tonight

Scranton School Board must come clean tonight

I was a fidgety kid. Couldn’t sit still, couldn’t focus on fuzzy math, couldn’t go along to get along. At 50, I am as restless as I was at 15,  only now I have two mortgages, utility bills and I get paid to be a troublemaker. If you've been reading my columns about...

The ‘Last Generation’ rises

The ‘Last Generation’ rises

Thoughts, prayers and cellphone video

Thoughts, prayers and cellphone video

This morning, I watched video of Wednesday's school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. A student made the chilling footage on a cellphone as the carnage unfolded. It was live-streamed on social media, and the victim of a past school...

Release Nunes memo, let Trump, GOP defend it

Release Nunes memo, let Trump, GOP defend it

I rarely agree with U.S. Reps. Lou Barletta and Tom Marino, but anything is possible in the Age of Trump. Both have called for the release of a controversial memo about the FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The FBI has urged against the...

Bob Bolus is full of Trump

Bob Bolus is full of Trump

Trump cultists are crowing today about the president's State of the Union address, in which King Donald: A. Proved he can read from a Teleprompter. B, Called for national unity -- as long as you can hold your nose and stop questioning Trump's divine right to rule. ....
