Froma Harrop: 'Death with Dignity' law is least slippery slope

Harrop-c.jpg The story of Brittany Maynard has revived the debate over Oregon's Death with Dignity Act. The law lets terminally ill patients end their lives with the aid of a doctor. That Maynard is a pretty 29-year-old newlywed using her personal tragedy to broaden support for such laws provokes and rankles foes of physician-assisted suicide.

Linda Chavez: The Ebola fear factor

Chavez-Linda.jpg It's time to take a deep breath. Ebola is an awful disease that has tragically infected a handful of Americans. Though it deserves the full attention of our medical community - most importantly, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - it should not be dominating our news, preoccupying our president and other political leaders, and frightening Americans into believing an epidemic on U.S. soil is just around the corner.

Mark Shields: Recognizing heroes in our midst

Shields-c.jpg That terrifying Tuesday morning, now 14 Septembers ago, when terrorists connected to al-Qaida hijacked jetliners and drove them into the twin towers of New York's World Trade Center will be forever with us -- just as we can never forget the 343 New York City firefighters who, on a mission to rescue fellow human beings in the burning buildings, walked bravely into the fires of hell to their deaths. Almost overnight, ambitious politicians everywhere were frantically getting their pictures taken with firefighters, who -- in spite of the fact that they were public employees and often even dues-paying union members -- had emerged as America's most popular heroes.
