Over recent days a number of Acton staff have authored op-eds in various print outlets. Here’s a rundown:
- Associate editor David Michael Phelps wrote a piece that appeared in today’s edition of the Rhode Island-based Providence Journal, “Miracles of God and miracles of science” (PDF).
- Marvin Olasky, an Acton senior fellow, wrote this piece on disaster preparation in yesterday’s Quad-City Times, “Advance planning curtails disaster.”
- Last week the San Francisco Examiner carried my piece on minimum wage legislation, “The minimum wage law: A denial of freedom and duty” (PDF).
- Acton research fellow Anthony Bradley had an op-ed appear in the Detroit News last week, “Welfare reform succeeded because it trusted the poor.”
One respondent to my piece wrote me a missive that opened by inquiring whether I am “a religious nut or just a fat Republican?” Anyone who knows me can see the error of this question immediately: It is presented in “either/or” form instead of as a “both/and” proposition.
A number of these op-eds are based on material that originally appeared as installments of Acton Commentary. If you aren’t a subscriber to our free weekly email update, Acton News & Commentary, get the scoop on the latest Acton writing directly to your inbox by signing up here.
