    Can the GOP reverse the damage done by Iraq?
    Is the Iraq war to blame for the mess we are in? Now, I should qualify that question by explaining "mess" and "we." By "mess," I mean the dawn of Barack Obama's second term, the predictably catastrophic rollout of Obamacare, the exploding debt and...

    'Time Stands Still' opens Everyman season
    Last December, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta declared the end of the war in Iraq. Whether there will be an end to repercussions from that war remains to be seen. One such repercussion involves a wounded photojournalist named Sarah and her reporter...
  • Are you better off?

    Are you better off?
    Are you better off than you were four years ago? That question, first raised by Ronald Reagan in a landmark 1980 debate with Jimmy Carter, is getting a second tour of duty these days courtesy of Mitt Romney and his fellow Republicans. That's not...

    Out of many, one
    Eleven years after the fateful events of Sept. 11, 2001, Americans still pause to remember the tragedy that befell the nation that day. In the days and weeks after the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil in history, Americans came together in shock, grief...

    Middle East mess was born in the U.S.A.

    'True Blood' recap: Season 5 premiere, 'Turn! Turn! Turn!'
    Just how many subplots swirled about in tonight's season premiere? I think I lost count at 32. While it's always good to meet new characters (like Vampire Authority rep Nora, who gives off a distinct Rachel Weisz vibe) and see others get extended time...
