Last week a federal judge ordered Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to allow 10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan, who suffers from cystic fibrosis, to be moved to the adult lung transplant list. That gives her a better chance of receiving a potentially lifesaving transplant. Sarah Murnaghan’s fate should force us to examine our organ [...]
As I noted in my last column, “The Stinking Badges of Our Federales” (June 2nd), the Department of Justice is again on the attack against freedom of speech. The occasion for this guerilla attack is a talk to be given by United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee Bill Killian during an event [...]

Even when some celebrities, such as Rosie O’Donnell, support gun bans while claiming special exceptions for themselves, we’re supposed to remain sanguine about their hypocrisy.
