    The NRA's big secret: Nobody is actually trying to take your guns

    Sometimes, you almost want to feel sorry for Mitt Romney

    ArtsCentric troupe puts fresh spin on 'Next to Normal'

    Mass shootings: Bad for America, good for the NRA
    It is not too much of a stretch to say the National Rifle Association profits from mass killings like the slaughter at the theater in Aurora, Colo., and the killings at the Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis. The NRA is, after all, a fundraising machine that...

  • It's all Obama's fault -- and he can't do anything about it

    It's all Obama's fault -- and he can't do anything about it
    Presidents get the praise or blame for everything that happens on their watch, but, as Barack Obama has learned, the things the commander-in-chief can actually command are limited in number, thanks to James Madison and Newt Gingrich. Madison and his...

    Romney and Ryan build a bridge to the 20th century

    Paula Deen lands in the deep fryer
    Paula Deen, the Southern celebrity chef, has been dumped from the Food Network like a stale beignet. Her Georgia roots are what made her a unique talent in the foodie world, and the darker ends of those roots are what got her in trouble. When her use of...

    In books, Baltimore beats Denver
    As the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos get ready for their big playoff game Saturday, there are plenty of opinions about how the teams and cities compare. But in one competition -- based on books -- Baltimore wins hands down. The East Coast city had...
