JOSEPH ASHBY — After Scott Brown's unthinkable victory in Massachusetts, the health care fight appeared to be over.

But, nonetheless, there it was, lying in my mailbox, a letter from Wasilla, Alaska, the office of Sarah Palin. I've gotten mail from lots of famous politicians in my time: George W. Bush, John McCain, George H.W. Bush, and even from Ronald Reagan himself... (more)

DENNIS PRAGER — One of the major differences between the Right and the Left concerns the question of authority: To whom do we owe obedience and who is the ultimate moral authority?

THE HILL — Democrats will finish their health reform efforts within the next two months by using a majority-vote maneuver in the Senate, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said.
