    'Homeland' recap, "Big Man in Tehran'

  • You're doing it wrong

    Having tried to sort out the categories of what people think of as rules of English usage, I thought I might make a start on the categories of what people call errors. Make no mistake: there are errors of usage. You may encounter people who say that a...

    'Homeland' returns steeped in D.C. dystopia

  • Mandela's views were not always so well received [Letter]

    I agree with Sherman Howell, "Nelson Mandela showed powerfully how one person can improve the world" [Dec. 12], but I think that it could serve a useful purpose to point out that, as far as the current adulation of Mandela by the U.S. is concerned, it was...

    'Scandal' recap, 'Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington'
    I’m going to begin by saying that I was not sure about this episode from the preview. Hostage situation? It’s been done so many times that I feared that we may be getting the first predictable episode of “Scandal” ever....
  • 'Homeland' recap: 'Horse and Wagon'

    'Homeland' recap: 'Horse and Wagon'
