Leonard Pitts Jr.: Louis Zamperini was more than a hero

leonard-pitts.jpg Just two pages into the book "Unbroken," its protagonist is in the water, hiding beneath the deteriorating life raft in which he has been drifting across the Pacific Ocean for almost a month.

Mona Charen: When government tries to be nice

charen-c.jpg Could the flood of underage, would-be immigrants over the southern border be "Obama's Katrina" as Susan Page of USA Today warned? No, it's worse. Even the most virulent George W.

Mark Shields: Giving public service a better name

Shields-c.jpg A while back, after the Gallup poll had reported that public confidence in Congress had fallen to a then-record low of 9 percent, Arizona Sen. John McCain observed that for Congress, "9 percent" meant we were down to "paid staffers and blood relatives." When a more recent Gallup poll found public confidence in Congress had dropped even further to only 7 percent, McCain amended his analysis. Reporting that he had just received a blunt call from his mother Roberta, still remarkable at 102 years old, he said, "I can report that we are now down to just paid staffers."
