If you hate the extreme polarization of American life today, with more and more people talking to and living alongside only people who share their world view, blame Roger Ailes, chairman of Fox News.
If you are angry about the loss of civility, the...

It was true last year, and it was true again Thanksgiving night: No one does the NFL like “NBC Sunday Night Football.”
From the opening aerial shots making even old Baltimore look all glittery and glam, to Bob Costas welcoming tens of...

If Navy's game last week at Notre Dame was about the history of one of college football's longest series, Saturday's home game against Hawaii is about the heart. Specifically, it is about Ken Niumatalolo's heart.
