Why the Upper East Side of Manhattan, perhaps the wealthiest neighborhood in the United States, is getting a massive trash dump in its backyard. More in my Sunday column.
Bonus edition of my Sunday column: a few thoughts on the movie-theater massacre in Colorado. There’s no making sense of the senseless, and there’s no understanding a madman (or preventing future lunacy).
Andrew Breitbart has died at 43. I’m stunned and saddened.
UPDATE: Warm words from his friend Greg Gutfeld. Well put, Greg.
I knew Andrew only slightly; the last time I saw him was at CPAC last year, when I went up to say hello but he was being mobbed by well-wishers and loving every second of [...]

Former Nixon Girl Diane Sawyer lands a big interview with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. How impressed should we be? More in my TV review.

Kunstler was a character; as a cub reporter at the Post from 1993 to 1996, I quickly learned that four people you could always get on the phone to comment about anything were Kunstler, Trump, Dr. [...]
