George Will | Trump’s Carrier ploy was a repudiation of conservatism

So, this is the new conservatism’s recipe for restored greatness: Political coercion shall supplant economic calculation in shaping decisions by companies in what is called, with diminishing accuracy, the private sector. This will be done partly as conservatism’s challenge to liberalism’s supremacy in the victimhood sweepstakes, telling aggrieved groups that they are helpless victims of vast, impersonal forces, against which they can be protected only by government interventions.

Betsy Steele | Befouling the landscape

It would be so easy to write a seasonal column about the leafless maples, their once bright colors replaced now by palettes of mushrooms — some fairy yellow, delicately button-shaped on the surface; some shelf-like, muscular bronze, forcing earth and asphalt aside.

Tracy Warner | Trump tweets way too much

Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion. Cancel order!

Tracy Warner | It all changed, 75 years ago

“Yesterday, December 7, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”

George Will | The sensitivity police strike again

The word “inappropriate” is increasingly used inappropriately. It is useful to describe departures from good manners or other social norms, such as wearing white after Labor Day or using the salad fork with the entree. But the adjective has become a splatter of verbal fudge, a weasel word falsely suggesting measured seriousness. Its misty imprecision does not disguise, it advertises, the user’s moral obtuseness.

World Editorial Board | An energy bill, now

House and Senate conferees entered this weekend trying to hammer out an agreement on a comprehensive bipartisan energy bill. With the close of the lame duck session of Congress only days away, time to cut a deal was very short.

World Editorial Board | Housing and its cost: Issue No. 1

It should be no surprise that the Our Valley Our Future massive community vision statement lists housing as a major concern. “Finding regional solutions to our valley’s housing crisis” is one of seven “game-changers,” among the community’s highest priorities.

Charles Krauthammer | The triumph of the West is over

Twenty-five years ago — December 1991 — communism died, the Cold War ended and the Soviet Union disappeared. It was the largest breakup of an empire in modern history and not a shot was fired. It was an event of biblical proportions that my generation thought it would never live to see. As Wordsworth famously rhapsodized (about the French Revolution), “Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive/ But to be young was very heaven!”

Tracy Warner | How many jobs can Trump save?

We can assume this is how politics and business will interact in the Trump era. Investment will be steered by government cajoling, threats, incentives and other leverage. Benefits will be dubious for business, temporary for workers and glorious for politicians.

Our Valley, Our Future shows us the power of engaging citizens

This is a momentous occasion — one that we will look back on in years to come as a defining moment in our valley. The Our Valley, Our Future (Nuestro Valle, Nuestro Futuro) process is a shining example of grass roots community building — in which we turned traditional top-down planning on its head and invited ordinary citizens to share their vision and take ownership of making positive change.

Eugene Robinson | Trump should support the Cuba deal

At long last, Fidel Castro is dead. Now the oppressive system he installed in Cuba can wither and die, too — unless Donald Trump reverts to Cold War policies and gives Cuba’s failing dictatorship new life.

Tracy Warner | Castro, poverty and desperation

Like most Americans my age, my first reaction to Cuba’s commandante Fidel Castro involved curiosity and abject fear. He cut a dashing figure in his fatigues, the beard and cigar. He shone through on the front page of the newspaper. He beamed on black-and-white television.
