    Keith Olbermann debut: Two minutes short of success

    Sally Ride had the cool to break the barriers
    Sally Ride had the coolest name. Perfect for the first American woman in space. On that day in 1983 when she shattered the ultimate glass ceiling aboard the shuttle Challenger, many in the crowd of a quarter-million people watching the launch — a...
  • People, not politicians, killed gun control

    People, not politicians, killed gun control
