WASHINGTON — Standing where his predecessor decried what he subsequently delivered — “American carnage” — Joe Biden on Wednesday promised a recuperative presidency. His call for Americans to heed the better angels of their nature — “each of us has a duty and responsibility” — recalled an adm…

DEAR READERS: Dr. Karen Shaw Becker, noted veterinarian, has posted an alert at healthypets.mercola.com relating to pet food recommendations.

In preparation for Election Day, Manhattan businesses boarded up in case violence erupted if Donald Trump won reelection. They had seen or already experienced destruction during the summer, when George Floyd’s and other Black people’s death at the hands — or knees — of police officers set of…

There are many dangers ahead for that great survivor of American politics, Joe Biden. There is a deadly virus that is rampaging across the land even as it is mutating, economic challenges, a wealth and privilege gap that is widening, potential troubles with Iran, allies wary of America’s com…

“There has never been a greater betrayal by a president of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution,” said Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, in announcing she would vote to impeach President Trump.

Week before last was a bad one for right-wing crybaby culture. Scarcely had Boss Trump’s paranoid mob retreated from the U.S. Capitol than the whining began. My favorite thing on Facebook was a photo of two guilty-looking dogs welcoming their master at the front door: “We’re so glad you’re h…

To follow up my column on the origin of life, it’s important to know about DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid. DNA is a double helix molecule on which the instructions to build your proteins are coded, using only three nucleotide bases in pairs. To visualize a double helix, imagine a twisted spir…

Not to put too fine a point on it, but I think we can all agree that 2020 was pretty much an unrelieved nine-alarm dumpster fire. It was with universal relief that we all celebrated the advent of the year 2021, looking forward to better days, more hopeful news, the dawning of a brighter world.

Democrats and their allies in the press spent the last four years accusing President Donald Trump of being soft on Russia. And worse: Some called the president a Russian asset, a traitor, Putin’s patsy and much, much more. It was all nonsense, because behind the rhetoric was the stark realit…

DEAR READERS: Anti-fur demonstrations need to make a comeback, considering the rising demand for such animal products — especially in Asian countries, which now receive much of what is “harvested” in North America and Europe.

Dave Barry is a humor icon, and I worship the pages on which his words are written. So it is with venerable old Dave in mind that I present a new column idea, “Grammar: Love It or Leave It.”

As Donald Trump’s Republican Party descends into madness, dragged down by the president’s lies, threats and possible mental illness, it’s become hard to imagine democracy-loving conservatives continuing to live in the same house. They’re in a marriage that can’t be saved.

After having made progress on a number of fronts during a Trump administration that was generally hostile to environmental spending and regulations, Chesapeake Bay advocates say they’re hoping for much more once President-elect Joe Biden takes office on Jan. 20.

DEAR READERS: My New Year’s message for 2020 was to wish America 20/20 vision. And now, we have 20/20 vision of a nation — and, indeed, a species — divided on how best to live in the midst of the climate, population and COVID-19 crises. There can be no more “business as usual,” putting short…
