Does Bias Affect Behavior?

Charles Krauthammer

 

A tribute to Charles Krauthammer

By Cal Thomas

I have often thought that tributes to those we love are best made when the object of our affection is still with us, rather than at their funerals.

I do not know Charles Krauthammer well, though we would occasionally see each other at Fox News when I worked there and at Washington Nationals baseball games.

The Trump-Kim Summit

Lessons for the Trump-Kim summit

By Cal Thomas

Tribune Content Agency

The unprecedented, historic and weird summit (Dennis Rodman might be there) between President Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, scheduled to begin Tuesday (today), if there are no surprises, could produce the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, or just more of the same lies and dissembling from North Korea we have seen before.

“I am shocked, shocked, to find that gambling is going on in here.” — Captain Renault, “Casablanca”

Human nature being what it is it should come as no shock that the next level of approved gambling in America is sports betting. States already have casinos, the lottery and other ways of separating money from the weak for their ravenous and bottomless coffers, so why not allow betting on sports contests?

Trash Talking

The coarsening of political language

By Cal Thomas

Tribune Content Agency

CANBERRA, Australia — Here in Australia, “Question Time” has long been one of my favorite exercises of parliamentary democracy. The prime minister and government ministers appear before other elected members in support of their policies, while the opposition asks pointed and sometimes funny questions in an effort to belittle those policies.

Hillary's Bitterness Tour

The bitterness tour

By Cal Thomas

Tribune Content Agency

MELBOURNE, Australia — When you hear “world tour” you usually think of superstars performing concerts in various cities for adoring fans. Not so with the presidentially deprived, entitlement-driven Hillary Clinton.
