What the moon landings taught us

No one doubts that the biggest achievement of the July 20, 1969, lunar landing was simply getting there. It was a monumental triumph of will — and technology.

How to put love above politics

Every morning, Dan Kaplan finds an article next to his plate at the breakfast table, placed there by his wife, Sandy. It is always a jeremiad against Donald Trump.

Trump masterfully navigates ‘Send her back’ controversy

Presidents, like most politicians, don’t apologize. They don’t admit mistakes, either. President Trump just did both. By saying he “disagreed with” and “wasn’t happy” with the audience chants of “Send her back” at his Wednesday rally, Trump effectively walked back his own tweet that went too far.

Planned Parenthood just exposed its own phony face

Poor Leana Wen. She took Planned Parenthood’s propaganda a little too seriously. And now she’s out of a job.

The high hidden price of paid-family-leave laws

Democrats see your paycheck as fair game for their endless social-improvement projects.
