Saturday Column: Is political correctness squelching free speech in U.S.?

Just how important is “political correctness”? Granted, there are various levels of political correctness, but, carried to the extreme (however that might be measured), is excessive political correctness helpful or harmful to our country — or both?

Opinion: Is Rubio the one who can win?

Unlike last month’s contentious GOP debate on CNBC, the event staged by Fox Business Network and The Wall Street Journal was thankfully less about the moderators and more about the candidates. It was about content, not about which moderator could ask the best “gotcha” question.

Opinion: Latest debate was most revealing yet

The Republican debate on CNBC was riveting, the way a train wreck is riveting — you can’t take your eyes off it. The Fox Business Network debate was merely satisfying. A serious political discussion requires a bit more work, but it repays the effort.

Opinion: Obama must clear hurdles on Iran

Long after Barack Obama has left office, the newly minted nuclear agreement with Iran will stand as one of the defining moments of his presidency, along with such successes as the Affordable Care Act and unsolved problems including the rise of terrorist threats after the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq.

Opinion: Greek deal and power in Europe

When the financial details are stripped away, the Greek bailout deal reached early Monday is really a reassertion of the core idea of post-war Europe — which is that France and Germany will stick together.

Opinion: Athletic unionization is not the answer

I am adamantly opposed to the unionization of college athletics. As one who served as a university chancellor/president for 22 years, I ask these unavoidable questions.

Opinion: Football’s grip worries university leaders

Many university presidents/chancellors think the current football climate has a financial grip on their campuses and that change is unlikely anytime soon. By Gene A. Budig

Opinion: Taxes pose human question

As the Kansas Legislature continues to debate whether to cut taxes and government services further, I have been thinking about the purpose of government at the state level. By Mike Hoeflich

Opinion: Innovative leaders boost universities

Great leadership requires a bold and compelling vision, and the ability to make that vision a reality.

Opinion: Renewed draft could curb gun violence

In the light of the massacre at Newtown, Conn., and the murder of two firemen in Webster, N.Y., national attention has again turned to how we can reduce gun violence in America. The responses have been predictable.
