Bar banter ends in night of destruction at town's elevator
PAGE -- Some bar banter ended in a night of felony-level property destruction when a suggestion by one man to another to "go jump off the elevator" here allegedly led to the trashing of the grain elevator's office and pickup truck instead, resulting in thousands of dollars' worth...

President Obama faces a chilly fall
Watching President Obama's poll numbers slide in recent weeks takes me back to the worst moments of the presidential campaign. I'm not thinking of Obama's presidential campaign. I'm thinking five years ago to Sen. John Kerry's losing campaign. And I am wondering, as I did with Kerry,...

Novak, a light-hearted 'Prince of Darkness'
Some people know ahead of time how their obituaries will start off and, try as they might to avoid it, they know the lead paragraph is not going to sound nice. Bob Novak, who died Tuesday at age 78, had a distinguished career as a Washington reporter, columnist and multimedia pundit...

President Obama's got his hands full with health care, two wars and the economy. But he put all that aside to have a beer in the Rose Garden with a friend and the cop who arrested the friend in the friend's own home.

Palin plays victim, reaps rewards
Poor put-upon Sarah Palin. As questions swirled around the suddenly announced resignation of Alaska's governor, it took no more than a day to wrap herself in the flag and unleash a Fourth of July rocket attack via Facebook squarely at a favorite target, the media. "The response in...

Sotomayor leaves fans wondering
You'd have to have a heart of stone to feel unsympathetic to Frank Ricci. Like his fellow New Haven firefighters, he studied rigorously for the city's promotion exam to lieutenant or captain rank. As a dyslexic, he had to work extra hard with flash cards and a hired tutor. But the...

Fight crazy talk with some sanity
What is it about President Obama that drives some people crazy? Take, for example, his former pastor. The Rev. Jeremiah Wright is back in the news again. This time he's apologizing. On Thursday, he found himself apologizing for a comment he made on Wednesday where he blamed "them...

Keeping up with the Obamas? Gimme a break
When it comes to annoying somebody or other, American presidents can't catch a break even when they decide to take a break. As predictably as potholes follow a Chicago winter, critics will pounce on presidential vacation trips as too being extravagant, too inconvenient or too self-indulgent. That's...

Cheney's tortured arguments
What a difference an election makes. Our national position has now shifted from "We don't torture" to "We don't torture anymore." Let us, then, disabuse ourselves of former President George W. Bush's notion that waterboarding and the other so-called "harsh" or "enhanced" interrogation...

Race goals easier, not better

North Korea tests Obama
What's going on in Kim Jong Il's unpredictable brain? We know that North Korea's "Dear Leader" is a passionate film buff who directs some of his own propaganda movies. Maybe that helps to explain the peculiar theatrics of his recent satellite missile dud. Some of us are old enough...

Obama has a hazy pot policy
For all of the keen intellect that President Obama showed in his online town-hall meeting, he didn't seem to know much about reefer economics. When asked whether legalizing marijuana might be a stimulus for the economy and job creation, he played the question for laughs. "I don't...
