Families of the fallen: Fighting to remember, fighting to forget

    Hundreds of American families are still fighting the war in Afghanistan. But they're fighting it at home.

Could a Romney run make Jeb Bush a winner?

    He didn't mean to. Mitt Romney's tentative entry into the 2016 Republican presidential fray was intended to stop Jeb Bush in his tracks, freezing the drift toward Bush by the Republican establishment-donor-class-realist- pragmatists or whatever you want to call the guys accustomed to calling the party's shots. Instead, it's more likely that Romney has done Bush a big favor.

A Detainee's Diary

    Last week, several Republican senators, including John McCain, called on President Barack Obama to stop releasing detainees from the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.

Culture wars, old and new

    The old culture war politics is dying but new culture wars are gathering force. The transformation of the battlefield will change our public life.
