  • Was Bucs' final play vs. Giants classless?

    FHA policies helped cause foreclosure crisis
    Imagine that a federal agency wanted to hurt America's working-class families on purpose. How would it inflict maximum damage? It might start by aggressively marketing homeownership to marginal borrowers. It would tell them that bad credit scores aren't...
  • Where's Waldo has 25th birthday

    Where's Waldo has 25th birthday
    Lika many parents, I spent hours poring over "Where's Waldo" books with my kids, but I was amazed to hear that the series is marking its 25th anniversary beginning today. How time flies. The geeky guy with the red-striped shirt and goofy cap has become a...
  • Which college team is the biggest surprise?

    Virginia Tech's a wreck Desmond Conner Hartford Courant Virginia Tech was a 101/2-point favorite against Pittsburgh, an 0-2 team that embarrassingly lost its season opener to Youngstown State and, subsequently, looked awful in its loss to Cincinnati....
  • Which conference is most competitive?

  • What NFL teams will be last to lose, win?

    Cardinals, Browns Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune I never thought I'd be writing this, but the team that might remain unblemished the longest could be the Cardinals. Their 3-0 record is more impressive than the 3-0 records of the Falcons and Texans...
  • Welcome to an age of interdependence

    The outcome of November's presidential election will affect the entire world. Yet until the attack on our consulate in Libya, issues of foreign policy and globalization were nearly absent from the political discourse. There was talk at both parties'...
  • How does Goodell save face over refs?

    Save the game instead Ron Fritz Baltimore Sun NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell won't be able to save face over the replacement refs, nor should he. What the NFL owners and referees are haggling over can't be worth the integrity of the game. Whatever it...
  • Will Europe or U.S. win the Ryder Cup?

    Pick, don't bet on U.S. Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune I'll pick the Stars and Stripes. You can justify the pick like this: Even though the Americans have lost four straight on the road, they've won two of their last three in the land of the free....
  • A football win, a basketball firing, K-pop and Schwarzkopf

    A football win, a basketball firing, K-pop and Schwarzkopf
    Why is “Trouble Maker,” a K-pop song that's been around for a year, suddenly getting worldwide Twitter love? I blame end-of-year lists and an upcoming awards ceremony. On a less global scale, residents along the East Coast continue to be...
  • What should Hornets' new nickname be?

    Pelicans is just fine K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune What's wrong with the Pelicans? As NBA commissioner David Stern said, as long as the owner is fine with it, he's fine with it. It's the state bird. It's actually a strong species, even though many...
