    HUNTINGTON, WV, February 4, 2013, ( – Planned Parenthood is not only facing an uphill battle in state legislatures seeking to deprive the organization of taxpayer dollars, it is also receiving a distinctly chilly welcome at some university campuses. "So many people rejected us. They acted grossed out. They didn't want to talk about it at all," said Jordan Bean, a leader of Vox, the college chapter of Planned Parenthood. Bean handed out condoms at Marshall University, where she is a senior, but said she had few takers. “We get a lot of backlash on campus, and people approach us...

    On a Monday in September 2007, Teddy Johnson went to his son's apartment. Adam Johnson, 22, was in his first year at Marshall University in Huntington. A history major, he played guitar, drums and bass, loved glam bands like the New York Dolls and hosted "The Oscillating Zoo," an eclectic rock show on the university radio station. Teddy hadn't heard from his son in three days. Letting himself into the apartment, he found Adam lying lifeless on his bed, in the same shirt he'd seen him wearing three days earlier. The cause of death: a heroin overdose. "I had no...

    Did Nostradamus predict 9/11? No, but Samuel P. Huntington did. Dr. Huntington of "Clash of Civilizations" fame, died recently. As Mark Steyn points out, this Harvard professor of Political Science championed the idea that culture trumps all. Steyn gives us an example of his own: in Bradford, 75 per cent of Pakistani Britons are married to their first cousins. As to the seductive assimilatory charms of time, 30 years ago the percentage was half that. A victory for culture over economics. The Australian has a great article on this great man who foresaw this current age of terrorism back in...

    December 31, 2008, 0:00 a.m. Samuel Huntington’s True VisionThe fruits of tolerance need roots in the soil of culture and identity. By Jonah Goldberg This time of year, newspapers and magazines swell with retrospectives on the year that was, predictions for the year to come, and cogitations on meaningless trends and contrived fads. Against this backdrop, there’s an added poignancy to the death of Samuel P. Huntington, who died Christmas Eve at the age of 81. A decent, profound, and profoundly consequential man, the Harvard professor was one of the lions of 20th century social science. He spotted trends...

    The last of Samuel Huntington's books -- "Who Are We? The Challenges to America's National Identity," published four years ago -- may have been his most passionate work. It was like that with the celebrated Harvard political scientist, who died last week at 81. He was a man of diffidence and reserve, yet he was always caught up in the political storms of recent decades. "This book is shaped by my own identities as a patriot and a scholar," he wrote. "As a patriot I am deeply concerned about the unity and strength of my country as a society based...
