    It seems like our current politicians and wannabes are unilaterally trying to establish an emerging market in our state — housing for the homeless.

    WASHINGTON — Simone Manuel, Katie Ledecky and Simone Biles will not be eligible to run for president until 2032, although Michael Phelps hits 35 years old in 2020. After watching these Olympians display so many traits we admire — persistence, discipline, grace, goal orientation, resilience, and inner strength — perhaps we should consider drafting one of them some day.

    OXFORD, Md. — Reflexively, I type “Dru” and The Drudge Report pops up. I hate myself for going there but as a columnist ever in search of the zeitgeist’s ultimate wave, I am behooved.

    CHICAGO — Seated in his office here, wearing neither a necktie nor a frown, Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner is remarkably relaxed for someone at the epicenter of a crisis now in its second year and with no end in sight. But, then, stress is pointless when the situation is hopeless. Besides, if you can ignore the fact that self-government is failing in the nation’s fifth-most populous state, you can see real artistry in the self-dealing by the Democrats who, with veto-proof majorities in the state Legislature, have reduced this state they control to insolvency.

    It has been almost six months since Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died unexpectedly, and almost five months since President Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland, the widely respected and centrist chief judge of the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., to succeed him.

    In 2014, President Barack Obama challenged America’s mayors to help end a shameful symbol of the nation’s broken promises to those who fought for the homeland but don’t have a home to call their own after returning to civilian life. To that end, the Mayors Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness had a goal as lofty as its title. There was already some progress on that front since 2010, thanks to the initiative of individual mayors who grew weary of waiting for the federal government to make it happen.

    WASHINGTON — One of the most unintentionally revealing moments of Hillary Clinton’s campaign so far came during her recent, unconvincing explanation of the email affair: “I may have short-circuited it and for that I, ah, you know, will try to clarify.”

    WASHINGTON — While President Barack Obama has never hid his penchant for marijuana during his youth in Hawaii, Americans soon will elect a president who claims never to have touched it.
