The trial of "the most successful serial klller in history" is being ignored by the media

The murder trial of Philadelphia abortionist and flat-out newborn murderer Dr. Kermit Gosnell has begun, but the media are ignoring it.

Infant beheadings. Babies aborted after the point where it was legal. Jars of pickled babies' feet. Newly-delivered infants literally screaming while they were butchered alive. An operating room withn "blood and fetuses all over the place." Dr. Gosnell joking about how an infant he was in the act of killing was "big enough to walk around with me or walk me to the bus stop." But little if any national news coverage.

This case isn't about whether you're pro-life or pro-choice. It's about fundamental decency. It should shock the nation- including morally healthy pro-choice folks.. It should inform a debate currently being misinformed  by Planned Parenthood's claims that late-term abortions are "rare," and therefore not worth getting worked up about.

The area set aside in the courtroom for the media was empty on the trial's first day..

When Lutheran theojournalist Molly Ziegler Hemingway tweeted Washington Post national health policy reporter Sarah Kliff, asking why she has shown such little interest in the case, Kliff explained that its only "a local crime story."

Like the OJ trial, or Son of Sam, or Trayvon Martin, or the Newtown shootings?

If this isn't a national news story, nothing is. So why the silence from the national media, who are so quick to jump on any story with national implications which promote the agenda of abortion on demand or same-sex "marriage?"

If Ted Bundy and  David Berkowicz and John Wayne Gacy and the Zodiac Killer are national news, why isn't the man Terry Moran calls "the most successful serial killer in history?"

McMullin, Kasich, Hickenlooper, Huntsman, or somebody else sane in 2020!

I don't expect to be disenfranchised in 2020. I'm looking forward to Evan McMullin running against President Trump and whatever left-wing extremist the Democrats nominate. McMullin may or may not run for the Senate next year, and he may or may not run for president as an independent again next time around, but the nation can't afford to lose its most eloquent and intelligent critic of the populist takeover of the Republican party and the Executive Branch. We need the man in public life.

But interesting alternatives have developed. Ohio Gov. John Kasich has been mentioned as a potential primary challenger for Mr. Trump. I hope somebody continues the fight for the soul of my former party, even though I believe it to be a lost cause. Entrepreneur Mark Cuban is reportedly also considering a challenge to Mr. Trump. While I tend to see him at this point as somewhere to the left of where a candidate I would feel comfortable supporting might be, I would wish him well. Still, I see…

A modest proposal for a shocking innovation which is completely within the rules but which would, if adopted, revolutionize college football

I call it defense.

The idea- crazy as it may sound- is to supplement the scoring of points by your offense with an attempt to stop the other team from scoring them. Yeah, I know.  Really "out there," isn't it? But it has a history of winning not only games but championships. Modern college teams should try it more.

I'm a bit bummed about the Rose Bowl outcome but amused by the score. It seems that certain conferences aren't sure whether they're playing college football or high school basketball! I've noticed that in the scores of Sooner games. Last season the nation's college teams set a record by scoring an average of slightly more than 30 points each per game. That's a lot. Historically, that's a REAL lot.

The final score of the Rose Bowl was 54-48, though to be fair that was in double overtime. But to get there, the teams had to be tied 45-45 at the end of regulation! Last year was even worse. Southern Cal beat Penn State 52-49- in regulat…

Reflections on the present and future of my Blackhawks

As this season from hell creeps to its close at an excruciating pace and makes all of us devote more of our attention to spring training for the Cubs than we otherwise might, there are calls for the heads of Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman and even the greatest coach in Blackhawks history, Joel Quenneville.

No general manager or coach could have made Marian Hossa and Corey Crawford healthy or prevented Toews and Keith and Saad from having the worst seasons of their careers or foreseen that a series of trades most of which made perfect sense at the time wouldn't pan out. The Hawks are one season removed from the second-best regular season in their history. This will be the first time in a decade that they haven't made the playoffs.

With the exception of the Pens, maybe the Kings and (for different reasons) the Golden Knights, every other team in the NHL would kill to have won three Stanley Cups in the past decade. In fact, only the Hawks, the Pens, the Kings, the Wings, and the Brui…
