Yeah, here's the difference, Anthony Weiner outright lied to the media (a la Richard Nixon) and let an FBI investigation begin before eventually owning up to it. Lie to the media, they ain't gonna be your friend. Plus, Weiner was generally just a dick (pun intended) to pretty much everyone. So he g...

On the way to being married here. Just purchased an engagement ring (locally crafted, with a freshwater pearl instead of a diamond), but we've already decided to go down that road. I'm for universal bilateral marriage, coming from the perspective that the state recognizes marriages for a limited num...

The Iowas always win out in any comparison. Superb speed, unparalleled modern computer controlled FCS, advanced radar and communications...there's no competition. As a part of the wider fleet they were even more formidable.

My folks got a Prius this past spring. Having driven it around, I cannot say that I like it--or for that matter, that I don't like it. It's just really plain.

It's Steubenville, guys. They included every remotely distinctive feature of a sad, dying town on the logo. That includes their bridge, the Berkeley cabin, and the only distinctive building from Franciscan . The long and short is that the religious symbol is incidental to the outline of the building...

Money, visibility, and prestige.

At Ohio State, despite having nothing to do with football, I received a thousand dollars a quarter in scholarship money from the licensing fees OSU football earns.

They ravage, they slaughter, they plunder, and they steal: this they falsely name governance, and where they make a wasteland, they call it peace. That's the Assad regime in a nutshell.

Unreserved no. Paterno's statue should definitely remain in place.

Removing the statue would be little ...
