Parker: Is private speech also free?

WASHINGTON - When my neighbor gleefully reported that Bill Maher had dedicated a searing monologue to me for a column about the Donald Sterling/Cliven Bundy rants, my first thought was: Nah. If I tussled with everybody who tossed a brick through the window, I'd never get the draperies hung.

Krauthammer: How to do the Benghazi hearings right

Sterling, the 80-year-old married billionaire who didn't want his 31-year-old girlfriend flaunting her relationships with African-Americans?

Kathleen Parker: GOP's attempt to govern is a tragedy in 52 acts

Jonah Goldberg: Exhausted liberalism in search of a fresh face

Canaries are not very formidable birds, but they have their uses. For instance, coal miners learned over a century ago that when canaries gag and drop dead at the bottom of the cage, it's a sign that maybe there's something wrong with the air in the mine.

Jonah Goldberg: University should show more tolerance for the intolerant

I once asked my late father if he had any experiences with anti-Semitism. There weren't many. Although that was probably in part because of his scoring methodology. The Irish kids who beat up the Jewish kids in his Bronx neighborhood didn't do so because they were anti-Semitic, but because "they had to fight somebody," as my dad put it. Today, such behavior would probably be called a hate crime.
