George Will: Keep an eye on Chris Christie

Iowa and New Hampshire together have just 1.4 percent of the U.S. population, which is actually why it is fine for them to begin the presidential selection process: Small states reward an underdog’s retail politics. Chris Christie relishes such politics and has fresh evidence that voters are enjoying his enjoyment.

Smile at the plow

You might have awakened very early last week to the sound of a snowplow blade scraping pavement, or the alarming beep-beep-beep of a truck sanding an intersection or school bus route. The best reaction is to take comfort, and go back to sleep to the music of your tax dollars at work.

A community, a vision, together

We have hope, we have ideas, we have energy, and we share it all. We can see a bright future together in a community joined to build on its strengths and shared values, to focus our collective efforts to make our dreams real.

King’s dream for us

This is the weekend not just to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr., not just to celebrate his message and dream, but to take it to heart and put it into action.

Tracy Warner | Did the president cut our gas price?

It is customary, even expected, for elected officials to seek credit for beneficial trends and accomplishments they did nothing to bring about. Even presidents of the United States do that from time to time. People usually applaud or nod approvingly.

George Will: Rubio’s record of misjudgment

What boxer Sonny Liston’s manager said of him (Sonny had his good points, the trouble was his bad points) is true of Marco Rubio. His strengths include intelligence, articulateness and, usually, cheerfulness. His misjudgments involve, in ascending order of importance, the Senate immigration bill of 2013, sugar, Libya and S-590. Together these reveal a recurring penchant for ill-considered undertakings.

Tracy Warner | Dream on, you Powerball players

It might do it. I might buy a Powerball ticket and put down $2 for a chance to win $1.5 billion in today’s drawing. I might, even though of all the things I could do with $2 this is among the least productive. Gambling is generally dumb, and lotteries dumber, and lotteries with near-impossible odds the dumbest of the dumb.
