Diane Dimond: Rembrandts of the courtroom

Dimond-Diane-color.jpg OK, by a show of hands, how many readers have actually sat inside a courtroom and watched a trial? Having been assigned to cover countless high-profile trials over the years, I have to admit I relish it.

Scott Rasmussen: Political language to blame for public distrust of government

Rasmussen-Scott.jpg In his weekly column for CNN.com, Julian Zelizer makes a reasonable case that "Distrustful Americans still live in age of Watergate." In his eyes, this helps explain why the president's health care law and other initiatives have encountered so much resistance.

Mark Shields: The most reliable poll of all

Shields-c.jpg I dimly recall being rousted out of my bunk bed as a young child before sunrise on Oct. 27, 1948, so I could stand at an intersection in my hometown of Weymouth, Massachusetts, to catch a brief glimpse of President Harry Truman as he drove by on his way to a campaign event in the more populous Brockton some 10 miles away. I later learned there were no prominent Massachusetts Democrats traveling with Truman that day -- the candidates for governor and U.S. senator were otherwise committed -- because in just six days, as all the smart money knew, Truman was going to lose big-time to Republican Tom Dewey.

Perhaps he could lay off the generosity long enough for us to recover from it all.

Froma Harrop: Where goes jazz as the greats move on?

FromaHarrop2013-c.jpg A jazz great died this month. Though revered by fans around the world, Horace Silver is not a household name in his own country, where the popular taste tends more toward rock and country than it does toward jazz. Silver's most widely recognizable tune, "Song for My Father," is recognizable mainly because the rock band Steely Dan used it in the opening riff of one of their biggest hits, "Rikki Don't Lose That Number."
