Dan Proft: Kendrick Castillo: Real Man

In our era of entitled youth and young men weakened by safe-spaced college campuses and fears of their own toxicity, it’s easy to fret for America’s future.

Dennis Prager and Andrew McCarthy, Senior Editor at National Review, simplify the complex aspects of the Michael Cohen trial. Larry Elder and Los Angeles attorney Reeve Chudd give tribute to Aretha Franklin and her contribution to music, but also how important it is to have a last will and testament.
