Where Did Hillary Go Wrong?

The lovely young Hillary Rodham, 1965. This morning, the hosts of Fox & Friends were mocking the latest installment of Hillary Clinton’s “Excuse Tour,” as we might call her ongoing crusade to avoid responsibility for her own failures: In an interview posted Wednesday with radio host Hugh Hewitt, Clinton bemoaned being seen as an extension […]

The Man Who Killed the Sixties

  Charles Manson died Sunday night. You have to be a certain age — and at 58, I’m just barely old enough — to understand just what a notorious public symbol Manson was, and what the infamous “Helter Skelter” murders signified. To put it as simply as possible, Charles Manson is the man who killed […]
