In June, inspectors from the department visited five facilities in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, and found children had few spare clothes and no laundry facilities. Many migrants were given only wet wipes to clean themselves and bologna sandwiches to eat, causing constipation and other hea…

The 911 Porsche was cherry red with a spoiler on the back – a whale tail, they called it – and sure enough I had been driving an Oldsmobile 98 before I decided to attempt coolness with a Porsche. I resided in Pennsylvania in those days but a friend from Texas occasionally visited to work at …

Deadlines to the printer being what they are we often have to look in the rearview mirror of news while we deal with the present and the future.

What I’m about to say would be shameless name-dropping – except I’m not dropping any names. You might still accuse me of self-indulgence, but then the whole idea of writing a newspaper column is fairly self-indulgent if you stop and think about it.

I’ve been struck recently by news coverage of humans’ degradation of the planet. Two opposing themes keep appearing. One is the sense that, as individuals, there’s little we can do. The other: As citizens of the planet we have a responsibility to protect it and to pass it on in good shape to…

Agriculture is much more than a deep-rooted part of Texas culture. It is also the lifeblood of our economy. Over 240,000 farms and ranches cover our state, more than any other in the country. The economic impact of agriculture in Texas totals more than $100 billion annually and agricultural …

Memory is a strange thing. When we began working on our story about the revived Sinclair Building (Business Press, Aug. 5-11, pg. 18), it triggered a memory that I had put away in that creaky, metal mental file drawer, locked away with a forgotten key sitting at the bottom of some desk drawe…

When I first saw the cover of the book, After the Fall: The Remarkable Comeback of Richard Nixon, I thought, what an interesting subject. My aunt, Lou Ann Francis, worked in the White House then and I visited her in 1973 as storm clouds around President Nixon were gathering. I was a wiseacre…

While most of the Metroplex has focused on the glitzy Arlington Entertainment District a few miles north – itself also in the midst of several upgrades – the majority of the city’s new job creation has taken place with little fanfare within the increasingly white-hot I-20 corridor.

We recently lost a remarkable Texan in H. Ross Perot, who died at age 89. While his passing justifiably invokes many and varied stories and commentaries, I will focus attention on his contributions to the Texas economy.

When I was a kid, shopping meant going downtown to Leonard’s Department Store. Leonard’s was an experience, an adventure even. On any given weekend, Leonard’s had people out demonstrating new products, offering taste tests, and having specials such as a 22-cent sale on Feb. 22, which back th…

The other day, someone I’ve known for years offered a pointed bit of criticism. “It’s easy for people like you to make long lists of things Congress should do to improve,” he said. “But you know good and well most of them won’t happen. So if you’re really serious, what’s the one most importa…

Lo, the poor woman, perhaps a victim of rape or incest, whose pleas for help and understanding fall on deaf ears. How far we have come from the hope, understanding and care personified by the late Democratic Speaker Jim Wright to the unfeeling stone age condemnation of new Republican Congres…

I became active in politics in the late 1950s, got elected to Congress in 1964, and have remained engaged in one way or another every year since then. I’ve had a ringside seat for 60 years. So I suppose I should not be surprised that I’m often asked how American politics has changed.

Free trade is clearly beneficial. Basic economic theory and centuries of evidence support this fact. The notable declines in trade driven by tariffs are harmful to the United States and China.
