Clarence Page Samples

Conservatives attack, rescue Obamacare

What a deal. Conservatives hoped that the high court would hold congressional Democrats to what they wrote in the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, which they passed without a single Republican vote.

Prisoners of a long-lost cause

Could this, at last, be the end of the Civil War? Or, as some fans of Southern heritage call it, the War Between the States? Or the War of Northern Aggression?

Are we giving up on gun laws?

Witnesses say that the white gunman who killed nine people at Charleston's historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church was quite vocal about his motives: He wanted to kill black people.

A fake black woman's 'passing' fancy

Perhaps we African-Americans should feel flattered that Rachel Dolezal wanted so desperately to be one of us.

Can Clinton rally Obama's coalition?

His campaign is a long shot, but I'm happy to see Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders putting forth a good impersonation of a serious challenge to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

Jenner's gender war on pronouns

Keeping the pronouns straight. My experience in this case consists of working in the same newsroom as Ridgely Hunt, an award-winning war correspondent for the Chicago Tribune, as he became Nancy Hunt in the mid-1970s.
