For Hillary, the past is prologue

    Hillary Clinton must have experienced deja vu the other day, facing a demanding press bombarding her with questions about her penchant for privacy. The specifics of the interrogation were different, but the response was essentially the same as in her encounters as first lady in the 1990s, in her 2008 presidential campaign and her four years as secretary of state.

The long shadow of racism

    See, I keep telling you that old-fashioned racism is alive and well in this country. After the fraternity bus sing-along at the University of Oklahoma, do you hear me now?

    "To the President of the United States," intoned the master of ceremonies. Members of an Army advocacy group and active-duty soldiers stationed in the Buffalo area rose to their feet for the toast. The year was 1962, John F.
