Living With Climate Change

Because the problem is likely to stretch on for decades, even centuries, even if humankind acts immediately, we had better get used to the idea of adapting.

Hillary’s Sex Appeal

Sure Hillary Clinton has name recognition and boatloads of money, but make no mistake: Being the first serious woman candidate has given her a major boost with the Democratic electorate.

Money Talks

George Clooney is a big-time movie star. Cate Blanchett is a big-time movie star. But Tyler Perry’s new movie did more box office on its opening weekend than Clooney’s and Blanchett’s new movies combined—which makes Perry a big-time movie star, too, and also a phenomenon.

Bush Gets Tightfisted With Sick Kids

To say that George W. Bush spends money like a drunken sailor is to insult every gin-soaked patron of every dockside dive in every dubious port of call.

EUGENE ROBINSON uses his twice-weekly column in The Washington Post to pick American society apart and then put it back together again in unexpected, and revelatory, new ways. To do this job of demolition and reassembly, Robinson relies on a large and varied tool kit: energy, curiosity, elegant writing, and the wide-ranging experience of a life that took him from childhood in the segregated South—on what they called the “colored” side of the tracks—to the heights of American journalism.

In a 25-year career at The Washington Post, Robinson has been city hall reporter, city editor, foreign correspondent in Buenos Aires and London, foreign editor, and assistant managing editor in charge of the paper’s award-winning Style section. He has written books about race in Brazil and music in Cuba, covered a heavyweight championship fight, witnessed riots in Philadelphia and a murder trial in the deepest Amazon, sat with presidents and dictators and the Queen of England, thrusted and parried with hair-proud politicians from sea to shining sea, handicapped all three editions of “American Idol,” acquired fluent Spanish and passable Portuguese, and even reached an uneasy truce with the noxious hip-hop lyrics that fester in his teenage son’s innocent-looking iPod.

Eugene Robinson won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary. Judges complimented Robinson’s “eloquent columns on the 2008 presidential campaign that focus on the election of the first African-American president, showcasing graceful writing and grasp of the larger historic picture.
