    The story is familiar by now. Nine years ago, a young football coach at Penn State walked into the locker room and heard odd noises from the showers. He peeked in, and claims to have seen a young boy with his hands placed on the walls, and a retired coach, Jerry Sandusky, embracing him from behind.  He reported this to his superiors, and, after a perfunctory investigation, they let the matter drop. Other young men now claim that Sandusky recruited them through his charity, The Second Mile, and seduced them or pressured them into sexual activity.
Sandusky maintains that he is...

Asked if people can choose to be gay, Gingrich told the Des Moines Register editorial board that he does not "believe in genetic determinism, and I don't think there is any great evidence of genetic determinism." He said that certain people may choose to be gay if they have certain genetic traits and are raised in a certain environment. "I think people have a significant range of choice within a genetic pattern," he said. "I believe it's a combination of genetics and...

With recent medical advances, and the promise of more soon to come, an AIDS-free generation is possible. Achieving this goal, as eloquently outlined by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton earlier this month, would save millions of American dollars and countless lives around the world. The question...

That's according to the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay organization, which launched its Corporate Equality Index in 2002, when only 13 businesses received a perfect score. By 2006 it had grown to 138, and last year it was at 305.

The new report said a senior church official charged with investigating allegations of sexual abuse by priests had in fact allowed some of those accused to remain in posts that gave them continued access to children. It charged him with endangering the welfare of minors and accused three priests and a teacher of raping two boys between 1996 and 1999. “By no means do we...

    The University of Arkansas Press has published the first scholarly assessment of Bill Clinton's presidency, titled "The Clinton Riddle." The compilation of essays by 11 of the nation's top political scientists and historians concludes that Clinton was "a pragmatic and defensive player" who was at his best when under attack. At the same time, it says 100 years from now, people still will be trying to figure out the lessons of the Clinton era. The book promises to be more even-handed than the presidential library and museum in Little Rock, which presents some of the controversies of Clinton's presidency squarely...

    It rained on Bill Clinton's parade -- and on a host of gathered Democratic luminaries -- in Little Rock earlier this month. The opening of Clinton's new presidential library, a disconnected bridge to the 21st century, was a largely sodden show. A military man gamely held an umbrella above the former president's already wet head, and the singer Bono's sunglasses were doing double duty as water shields. A day later, a photo preserved the sight of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton jammed together in a doorway, each intending to go first (Clinton won). It brought to mind the shadow-boxing...

    The Washington Timeswww.washingtontimes.com The Clintons' win-loss recordPublished November 28, 2004 Two weeks after yet another Democratic debacle at the polls, a crowd estimated at 30,000 celebratory partisans joined Bill and Hillary Clinton in a literal and metaphorical rainstorm to commemorate his two-term presidency at a ceremony dedicating the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock. With Bill reportedly still weak and tired from his recent heart-bypass surgery, Hillary handled many of the non-stop media interviews, including a lengthy prime-time appearance on the Fox News Channel the night before the dedication.     How appropriate. Having been clobbered in the Nov. 2...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Free admission is bringing thousands of visitors to the new Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock. Skip Rutherford, the president of the foundation that built the library, said more than 9,000 people showed up Friday -- far exceeding the 3,000 that had been expected. Rutherford said lines were steady despite an Arkansas Razorbacks football game. He said the crowd included many locals, as well as people from all over the world. The presidential library is waiving its normal $7 entry fee over the holiday weekend. The $165 million glass-and-steel building, home to artifacts and documents gathered...

    The same week he opened his presidential library, former President Bill Clinton sat down for an oft-contentious interview with ABC News anchor Peter Jennings. During the interview, Clinton reminded us of the lies, arrogance, and utter contempt for our nation's highest office that he routinely exhibited during his administration. When Jennings discussed the rankings of presidential historians who rated him beneath Richard Nixon in moral authority, Clinton went ballistic. "And still, [there's] not any example of where I ever disgraced this country publicly. I made a terrible public-personal mistake, but I paid for it, many times over," Clinton said. "And...
  • Clinton Legacy Poll: It's All About Sex

    "It's only about sex." That was the mantra of the Democrats and their big-media stooges during the Clinton impeachment trial. "Yes, he lied under oath, but it was all about sex," they intoned. Now, in an ironic twist, a new poll reveals that most people think the Clinton years were indeed all about sex. Fifty-three percent of those responding to the Polling Company survey said that the Lewinsky affair is what they will remember most about the Clinton years. Only 11 percent will remember Clinton as a good president. While his impeachment is conspicuous by its near absence in the...

    Like Andrea Peyser, I have had just about enough of Bill Clinton's self-congratulatory banter ("Clinton Lie-brary," Nov. 22). He came in on the wings of an economic upswing that he had nothing to do with, and he went out on its decline. He degraded his office, refused to take responsibility for any of his actions and sought no real recourse against the three terrorist attacks that took place on his watch. Enough already.

    The cold, rainy conditions during the dedication of the William J. Clinton Presidential Center on Nov. 18 didn’t dampen the impact of the week-long celebration, according to figures released Thursday. "I think the week exceeded expectations," said Skip Rutherford, president of the William J. Clinton Presidential Foundation. "Monday through Wednesday and Friday and Saturday were great days for Little Rock and Arkansas," Rutherford said. "Thursday, with the presidents and the first ladies coming together in a bipartisanship show of support, was a great day for America." Although predictions call for near record levels of hotel and restaurant tax revenue, figures...

    When asked, "In your opinion, what will Bill Clinton be remembered for?" a majority of Americans cite some aspect of the former President's relationship with the White House intern, and a plurality mention her by name. Washington, D.C. — Despite the fact that Monica Lewinsky's name is only mentioned two times in the new Clinton Presidential Center, a majority of Americans think of her or her affair with Bill Clinton when they reflect on the most memorable events of the Clinton Administration, according to a recent national poll of 800 adults. Respondents were asked to reveal what they thought Bill...

    Elusive building, like the man Tuesday, Nov 23, 2004 By John Brummett I agree with Hillary Clinton when she says her husband's new presidential library in Little Rock reflects him perfectly. But I see it and him differently from the way she sees them. She says the structure represents Bill in that it is open, expansive and full of light. She's correct as far as that goes. But the library mirrors him in a more substantive way: What you make of it depends on your angle. From the Interstate 30 bridge over the Arkansas River the structure looks for all...

    INDEPENDENCE, Mo., Nov. 23 - That legendary sign "The Buck Stops Here" gets prominent display at the Truman Presidential Museum and Library, along with a cautionary disclaimer that it is "unclear how long it sat" on Truman's Oval Office desk. But the sign, and its appearance here, provide a bracing contrast to the sensations inspired by the new William J. Clinton Presidential Center, 400 miles away in Little Rock, Ark. Some similarities might be expected. Both William Jefferson Clinton and Harry S. Truman were Democratic presidents sometimes facing hostile Republican-dominated Congresses; both were born without inheritance or distinguished lineage; both...
