ANWR can be developed without harming wildlife
If I said to you that South Carolina must remain untouched, there can be no development, no homes, nothing but wilderness, your answer would be: "That is ridiculous. In each state there must be a balance between protected areas and development."

It's time to reform Electoral College
Imagine if, after the conclusion of the Super Bowl or the World Series, it was announced that the winner didn't really win. That instead the championship would be given to, well - the loser. That's exactly what might be happening right now for the highest elected office in our land.

Honor the veterans: They paid a high price for war
On the eve of my deployment to Saudi Arabia in January 1991 for the Gulf War, I was pulled aside by a Seattle news crew. A reporter asked me, "What do you expect once you're there?" I answered: "My feelings are irrelevant. We are just the tools used when the decision is war."

Is this a wake-up call?
It's time to dismantle the Electoral College, as yesterday's national election clearly demonstrates.

Elections work in a land of law
The following editorial appeared in today's Los Angeles Times: An impatient nation fidgeted Wednesday while the outcome of a razor-close presidential election rested on a recount of votes in Florida. If there are legal challenges, the suspense could stretch for weeks. But in the end, Americans can be assured that this election will be settled in due time, fairly and legally a democratic confidence still sadly too rare in the world.
