As a decades-long proponent of redistricting reform, I welcome the recent and no-doubt heartfelt support for my cause from North Carolina Democrats. But like new converts to all sorts of righteous causes, they run the risk of letting exuberant devotion impair their practical judgment and common…

President Trump once boasted that his base was so loyal that he "could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn't lose any voters."

Now he's putting that claim to the test with his immigration proposal. In his State of the Union address Tuesday, Trump offered to support…

I eased into the New Year with thoughts of great change in the outdoors and hoping to see the color of warm green instead of the cold color of white.

A much younger Bill would have enjoyed the snow, just as we did in 1948, when we had more snow than I had ever seen at one time.

My other thoughts of…

We need good leaders more than ever.

In our local schools and businesses and churches. We need them in responsible government positions in our state and at the highest national level.

So, what is good leadership? How do you find it? How do you develop it? And how do you deal with the consequences…

Protests have been part of American politics ever…

Wait, back up a minute. We just zoomed past a story that would have been a five-alarm scandal for any other administration, with weeks of screaming front-page headlines: "The President and the Porn Star."

The Wall Street Journal had the scoop on Jan. 12: "A lawyer for President Donald Trump…

When you reach a milestone it is wise to pause and reflect on the journey that brought you there. Having produced and moderated 1,000 weekly TV talk shows, I focused on the changes that occurred over almost 20 years and what I had learned.

Citizens of The Old North State like to think of ourselves…

Everybody seems to know what President Trump wants except President Trump.

He was foolish enough to believe he wanted a deal that would allow 700,000 undocumented immigrants brought here as children to stay. An arrogant 32-year-old White House aide, Stephen Miller, had to set the president…
