A SECOND OPINION, The Wall Street Journal   Would Republicans in Congress stay mute if a President imposed income or sales taxes on U.S. industries on an arbitrary whim? We doubt it, so it’s dispiriting to see Senate Republicans let Donald Trump impose tens of billions of dollars in border...

A SECOND OPINION, The Los Angeles Times   After raising expectations that it would finally deal with the harm caused by partisan gerrymandering, the Supreme Court on Monday essentially said: “Never mind.” It was an exasperating abdication of responsibility by the court, which should have...

A SECOND OPINION, The Lawrence Journal-World   Advocacy groups are right to oppose rate hikes sought by Westar Energy. The Citizens Utility Ratepayer Board, or CURB, a state agency that represents consumers in utility rate cases, and staff members from the Kansas Corporation Commission...
