    January 13, 2011 | 10:52 am

    Extreme rhetoric can inspire extreme behavior, even violence. But there isn’t a shred of evidence that anything that anyone on the political right—or left—said or wrote inspired Jared Lee Loughner to launch his deadly rampage in Arizona.

    November 11, 2010 | 2:09 pm
