...Presidential Medal of Freedom. That would be beyond comprehension. But not, alas, beyond the realm of possibility. Linda P. Campbell is a columnist and editorial writer for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Chief Justice John Roberts is brilliant and quotable. That doesn't necessarily make him right.
Why aren't Republicans in Congress demanding an investigation into the Supreme Court leakers? After all, folks like Rep. Lamar Smith of San Antonio and Sen. John McCain of Arizona insist that leaking has serious ramifications.
The starkest evidence of how conservative southwest Missouri is didn't come from the Interstate 44 roadside ads for Fantastic Caverns, the constant reminders of how much "MoDot cares" or even the billboard proclaiming "Government control is not the answer.

A few hard-hatted workers walked near the not-yet-finished gray building with a "9-11 Memorial" sign draped on one side.
Is banning a few students from wearing U.S. flag T-shirts really the best way to maintain order in a public school? Really? That's what officials at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., insist they were doing last year on Cinco de Mayo.
