PROHIBITION: October 15, 2018 My last column, which explained how alcohol prohibition made it into the Constitution 100 years ago, included this sentence: “Beer’s connection to German brewers — the United Brewery Workers’ constitution required that it’s president speak German — hurt it’s wartime standing.” Many of you probably noticed the twice-...

SHORT STORY: June 25, 2018 Twelfth in a series of short short fiction. For other stories in this series, visit wng.org/shortstories. Mike Khan had indeed had a vision on the road to Damascus, as he wrote to Rachel Auerglas (see story No. 10, “Khan unchained,” in WORLD’s Dec. 30, 2017 issue). He was driving a rebel truck,...

REJOICE: June 11, 2018 Life is full of semi-miracles: Let us rejoice and be glad. If you’ve ever sat in a markup session where senators edit prospective federal laws, you’re not surprised that most legislation is messy sausage-making.

RPA-POEM: May 14, 2018 Some Washington acronyms, like HHS and HUD, are well-known, but I’ll be surprised if any readers recognize a new kid on the block, RPA-POEM. That’s the acronym for “Reducing Poverty in America by Promoting Opportunity and Economic Mobility,” the executive order Donald Trump signed on April 10. RPA-...

TRUMP PRESIDENCY: April 30, 2018 Flannery O’Connor’s short story “The Lame Shall Enter First,” published in 1965, explains the rise of Donald Trump better than a plethora of analytical books and articles. The protagonist is a man, ironically named Sheppard, who knows little about sheep. Sheppard’s wife has been dead...
