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."

Scott Rasmussen: Celebrating checks and balances

Rasmussen-Scott.jpg Last week, the Supreme Court issued a unanimous ruling against the president's right to get around Congress by making recess appointments. This is frustrating to President Barack Obama at the moment and will undoubtedly aggravate some future Republican president.

Diane Dimond: The migration mess of our own making

Dimond-Diane-color.jpg Global Positioning Satellite systems can pinpoint our location no matter where we are in the world and tell us precisely where to turn to get to our destination. U.S. satellites monitor just about anything on earth -- from the path of a forest fire to the route of a convoy of trucks.
