Putin’s War Puts Him in Infamous Company
Washington — You might recall last week that I began calling President Vladimir Putin of Russia “KGB Col. Vladimir Putin.” I meant to diminish him in the eyes of my readers. I asserted that he rose to the rank of colonel when he was in the KGB, or, rather, when there was a KGB.

Putin Wakes Up the Western Ostrich

Not So Easy Summertime
There once were summertimes when the living was easy, as the song from the Broadway musical “Porgy and Bess” melodically reminds us.

Before the entire world became glued to the internet, social media, and summer TV re-…
