The unspoken etiquette of airline, bus and train travel

Jacy Reese was just being polite when he offered to switch airline seats with a mother and her young son on a recent flight from Copenhagen, Denmark, to Toronto.

A healthful risotto that doesn't cause a stir

A healthful risotto that doesn't cause a stir

I have a risotto conflict. I love the traditional dish - made with arborio, carnaroli or another short-grain white rice that swells up and combines with the cheese and butter to get so wonderfully creamy. But like so many other health-conscious cooks, I'm also trying to favor whole grains whenever possible. So I've broken with tradition and made risotto - or should I call it "risotto"? -...

Awe and inspiration along the Harriet Tubman Byway

At some point in the swelling rhapsody around Harriet Tubman’s remarkable life, it is easy to wonder, with perhaps a bit of guilt, where Tubman’s heroism ends and tall tales begin.  Somewhere between mythic and make-believe slave narratives, “Birth of a Nation” and “Django Unchained” included, you want to hit pause and go searching for the truth of how, for...

Trump used to live-tweet the Oscars; guess how much he liked them

In February 2015, Donald Trump had an idea. "The Academy Awards last night were absolutely terrible," he said in an Instagram video. "Terrible, boring, ugly sets, everything. I have the perfect host for next year: me." Trump announced his candidacy for president just four months later, and by the time the 2016 Oscars rolled around, Trump was in Alabama for a political rally. Chris...

Through heartbreak, Daytona still the place for Waltrip

No place in racing has meant more to him. No place ever has made him jubilant and heartbroken at once.

Mona Charen: What’s up with rape in Sweden?

Mona Charen: What’s up with rape in Sweden?

President Donald Trump was more right than wrong about Sweden. Fox News was slightly misleading. Fox News and, more particularly, certain right-wing websites have been conjuring the “Idyllic Sweden destroyed by Muslim refugees” line, complete with “no go” zones, Sharia law and terror attacks. That’s an exaggeration, but so is The Washington Post’s take: “In...

The pen vs. the keyboard

This note from Carolyn Reams Smith speaks for itself. ” The keyboard, for youngsters who have learned typing by trial and error, is not so much an instrument of thinking as it is a gateway to other activities. “Cursive writing, on the other hand, is an instrument of thinking — one that has few distractions. Once a student has cursive skill, that great trio — the pen, the hand...

Why the GOP really hates Obamacare

Across the country, Republicans have been facing crowds demanding to know how they will protect the 20 million Americans who gained health insurance thanks to the Affordable Care Act, and will lose it if the act is repealed.
