E vents have devised this sorry legacy: Bill Clinton will be recalled, with mocking irony, as the president who introduced the legal wink of “Don’t ask, don’t tell” to public policy. It seemed a clever ploy back in 1993, when the new president was dodging intense political cross fire over gays in the military. Gays will not be allowed to serve in the military, Clinton decided. But — – wink! —– we’ll look the other way. When the president attempts to cover his own behavior with an equivalent version of hypocrisy before the law, it injures all of us and creates a swamp of impossible dilemmas for the nation. Shall we give him an official pass to perjure himself on questions about his sex life? Or is Congress about to impeach a president for mere sexual infidelity? Have our public values been reduced to the contentious word games of criminal-defense lawyers? Or is America conducting a moralistic plebiscite —– thumbs up, thumbs down in the overnight polling? The dispiriting … [Read more...] about Clinton and Character
Editors note: On the commemoration of what would have been Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s 93rd birthday, multi-platform company Macro founder Charles D. King today takes a big picture look at an American icon and his influence in a guest column for Deadline. *** The significance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday in 2022 embodies a day of remembrance for one of our country’s and our world’s greatest leaders. Cut down by an assassin’s bullets in 1968 at the age of just 39, he was a man who sacrificed his life and his family for all of us for the work that he did to shine a light on racial injustice, the fight for equality and frankly, to make our world and our country a better place. So, the fact that we can honor his legacy and his work every year is a reminder of his incredible contribution to our society but also, too, as a reflection and a reminder as to the work that we must continue to all do together to move our communities and our society … [Read more...] about MLK Day: Macro’s Charles D.

F ROM JONESBORO, ARKANSAS, TO SPRINGFIELD, OREGON, the serial carnage in American schoolyards has generated the predictable outrage aimed at rap music and devil teenagers. Why are kids shooting each other, their parents and teachers? Americans always enjoy a lusty discussion of what’s wrong with the younger generation. Plus, it lets everyone avoid the politically explosive question of what’s wrong with the guns. While talk shows and right-wing preachers obsess about the moral depravity of youth culture, the usual political adversaries are lining up for yet another long-running congressional struggle over various gun-control measures. The National Rifle Association knows that people are upset by the spectacle of gun-toting students and hopes to soften its image with Charlton Heston as its new president. Meanwhile, Handgun Control Inc., the leading advocacy group of reformers, unveils a new grab bag of modest legislative ideas for reducing the bloodshed, such as mandatory trigger … [Read more...] about Will the Smart Gun Save Lives?
