    CHRISTIANA, Del. - July 30, 2007 - A fight at a Delaware mall involving hundreds of young people is prompting new calls for a curfew today.

    A lawmaker got punched upside the head the other day. Lest we assume it was just one more mêlée in the parliament of South Korea or Japan, where fist-fights are routine, think again. The Alabama Senate witnessed this blow. Republican Senator Charles Bishop and Democratic Senator Lowell Barron were on opposite sides of a reform bill so a frustrated Bishop registered his opinion with a fist. Is that anyway to run a state? Suit and tied Legislators are supposedly cerebral and dignified, with the intellect and cunning as weapons of choice. Legislatures are hallowed assemblies where Robert’s Rules of Order...

    A few weeks ago the Chinese national youth football team arrived in London to play some matches against the capital’s clubs as part of a historic, groundbreaking, goodwill visit ahead of the Olympic Games. A chance for our two nations to foment sporting respect for one another, despite our profound political differences. Sort of like Nixon’s visit to Peking in 1972, except with the top referee Dermot Gallagher in attendance, rather than Henry Kissinger. I dare say you can imagine what happened, in case you haven’t already heard. Seven members of the Chinese team were sent home after a terrific,...

    CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Shaking her fist for emphasis, Miami president Donna Shalala said Tuesday that sanctions levied against 13 players for their role in a sideline-clearing brawl were fair, justified and strong enough to satisfy the university. All that, though, came with one big caveat: Miami athletes simply can never fight again, she said. "This university will be firm and punish people who do bad things," Shalala said. "But we will not throw any student under the bus for instant restoration of our image or our reputation. I will not hang them in a public square. I will not...

    The Brawl That May Erupt Over the High Court By JEFFREY ROSEN Published: May 1, 2005 WASHINGTON — It feels like Armageddon is just around the corner. The Republican threat to eliminate the filibuster rule in judicial confirmations has led both parties to cautiously assess what the political landscape would look like if the so-called nuclear option were used. But for many here, this political brawl is only a dress rehearsal for the coming battle over a replacement for Chief Justice William Rehnquist, whose recent illness has led to the expectation that he will retire before the end of the...
