Colorado governor's lawn draped in toilet paper
DENVER (AP) -- It wasn't fresh mountain snow but toilet paper that blanketed the front lawn of the Colorado governor's mansion Thanksgiving morning. Gov. Bill Ritter told KUSA-TV that he and his wife noticed shortly after dawn Thursday that someone had "teepeed" the front lawn....

Letter: Don't send money, it's a scam
If you're thinking of sending money to Canada to help out a relative that is in trouble, don't. It is probably a scam. It starts out with a phone call from someone who claims to be a relative (niece, nephew, cousin) and he or she is in trouble from a car accident or something of...

Letter: Looking forward to working with senator
It is remarkable! Nearly 40 mayors from across our state have lent their names to the Friends of Byron Dorgan Honorary Committee -- a group of people who support Byron's reelection to the United States Senate. Mayors from our largest cities -- like Fargo and Grand Forks -- are on...

Some blacks having doubts
Americans of all political persuasions agree that the nation has problems. Big problems. And here's where we all part company. The political left, who now control our government, thinks we need more government -- a lot more.

'The Prince of Darkness'
It wasn't supposed to happen this way. In 1996, I came to Washington as the new liberal co-host of CNN's "Crossfire" to do battle with Bob Novak. And I did, hammer and tongs, almost every night, for six years. But, along the way, I also became his friend. His nickname was "The Prince...

The tea baggers are back - crazy as ever
Ah, democracy! It never works better than when informed citizens gather in town hall meetings to discuss and debate the issues of the day. But, oh, democracy! It's never more damaged than when partisan zealots plot to disrupt town hall meetings in order to prevent any honest debate...

Born in a manger in Hawaii
In September 2002, astronaut Buzz Aldrin was walking out of a Beverly Hills hotel when Bart Sibrel, a leader of the nutty gang who believe the Apollo mission was actually faked in a Hollywood studio, confronted him. "You're the one who said you walked on the moon when you never did,"...

The big 60: Use it or lose it
Good things don't come easily. It took 239 days, but the Minnesota Supreme Court finally declared Al Franken the winner over Norm Coleman. And suddenly Democrats have 60 votes in the Senate -- and no more excuses. For six months, we've heard nothing but complaining from Democrats:...

Cry for me, Argentina!
Oh, the Appalachian Trail. It's famous as the longest footpath in the nation -- but now we know it's even longer than we thought, stretching all the way from Maine to Argentina! And nobody ever encountered as many bumps along the trail as South Carolina's Republican Gov. Mark Sanford. After...

More competition in health care
As usual, the president said it best: "Millions of our citizens do not have a full measure of opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health care. Millions do not now have protection or security against the economic effects of sickness. The time has arrived for action to help them attain...

Why doesn't Obama just stay home?
In the interest of full disclosure, I sometimes crave a good burger. So whenever the mood strikes, I head to the "Five Guys" closest to Washington's Capitol Hill: on New Jersey Avenue, near the new Nationals' ballpark. Too bad I wasn't there on May 29. I could've shared a cheeseburger...

Obama reaches out to Muslim world
One of the greatest challenges facing President Obama when he took office was restoring America's standing among other nations, especially our standing in the Arab and Muslim world, so badly shattered, on our end, by Sept. 11 --and, on their end, by the war in Iraq. As Press Secretary...

Obama hits home run with Sonia Sotomayor
Maybe I just have too much empathy. But I admit shedding a couple of tears, standing in the East Room of the White House and watching the first African-American president of the United States nominate the first Latina to the U.S. Supreme Court. Anyone who doesn't value the historic...

Dems stab Obama in the back
You know what they say: "Be careful what you ask for, because you just might get it." Sadly, on one issue at least, that's all too true of Senate Democrats. After praying so long for a 60-vote, filibuster-proof Democratic Senate, we're almost there -- 59 with Arlen Specter! -- but...

On this day (only) we pray
At some point on May 7, I trust you stopped whatever you were doing, got down on your knees and prayed. Surely you realized it was this year's National Day of Prayer. As every God-fearing American must know, the National Day of Prayer was first declared in 1952 by a Democrat, Harry...
