Hickory Houses

Kayla Moore, Roy Moore’s wife, shared a post on Facebook last night that declared, “The Roy Moore story is fake!” The reason?

‘Roy Moore Loses the “He Said / She Said”’

I wrote about the Roy Moore controversy today: Roy Moore’s reputation depends on denying that he dated teenage girls as a grown man, and yet he can’t quite bring himself to do it. The Alabama Republican’s campaign for the Senate has been rocked by allegations of sexual improprieties with underage girls. Show More Summary

Another (Sad) Salute

Last summer, National Review published the following little editorial: Announcements on London’s Tube have always referred to riders as “ladies and gentlemen.” No more: The phrase is being scrapped because authorities believe that it makes some people feel excluded. Show More Summary

MI, KS Push Back Against "Futile Care" Laws

The push back against “futile care” laws has commenced! Futile care polices allow hospital death panels–I’m particularly talking to you, Texas–that permit wanted life-sustaining treatment to be stopped on the orders of a bioethics committee. Kansas recently passed a bill requiring consent and permission for such actions to be taken. Show More Summary

Roy Moore Won't Drop and There’s No Way to Make Him

Absent some catastrophically undeniable new allegation, Roy Moore isn’t going anywhere. There’s no way to force him off the ballot at this point.
