Pro/con: Will Trump outdo Obama in handling U.S.-China relations? No
President-elect Donald Trump's phone call last month with President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan sent shock waves throughout China and much of the world. For nearly four decades, it has been Washington's official policy to diplomatically recognize only China and not Taiwan, an island the...

Other view: Texting while driving? In seconds, you could ruin lives forever
Close your eyes, and count five seconds. Open them. That’s the average amount of time motorists take their eyes off the road while texting. The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute says it’s actually 4.6 seconds, but you get the picture. Think of what could happen in 4.6 seconds...

Attorney General's view: Congress needs to act on prescription reform
One in 10 Americans is prescribed a medication that can’t be afforded. No wonder. Per-capita spending on prescription drugs in the United States ($858) is more than double the average of the next 19 industrialized nations ($400). Big Pharma claims that research and development is...

In the autumn of 1897, Virginia O’Hanlon, age 8, sat down and wrote what would become the most famous letter to the editor in American history. The New York Sun not only published the letter, on Sept. 21, 1897, but responded with an unsigned editorial that answered the age-old question:...

St. Paul should pay attention to developments in a courtroom across the river. A challenge to the Minneapolis sick- and safe-time mandate — and the reasoning on which it’s based — is compelling and instructive. The lawsuit, brought by the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce and other...

Other View: Sleepy drivers kill: An impairment that cannot be brushed aside
Society looks askance at the inebriated person who gets behind the wheel and the one who texts while driving. But no such opprobrium faces the groggy driver. Perhaps America is too tired to notice him.

Other view: The Left lost, just like it did on Election Day
There’s a reason why Republicans soon will control not only the presidency but also the Senate, the House, 33 governorships and both chambers in 32 states. The reason can be found in the Dakota Access Pipeline case. With its elevation of identity politics above all else, its twisting...
