Opinion Line

I am always amazed when I see an auto that still has an Obama-Biden sticker on it. Have they no shame? Roger Goodell seems to have forgotten that only Obama can lie to everyone in the country, get away with it and keep his job.

Seattle liberals are unhappy about a Missouri law that sets a 72-hour waiting period on abortions, but they're not alarmed about a proposed doubling of the waiting period for handguns.
