The Big Attack
With the exception of a good margarita, I've never been one for mixed drinks. Which doesn't mean I don't like a great cocktail.
"To the art of working well, a civilized race would add the art of playing well," philosopher George Santayana said.
Calling the Arizona legislation constitutionally flawed, proponents of abortion rights on Monday urged the U.S. Supreme Court to block the state from enforcing a ban on the procedure at 20 weeks.
Let's all stop being coy and fess up, shall we? The truth is, even those of us who work with cookbooks, write about cookbooks, collect cookbooks — heck, even write cookbooks ourselves — don't actually cook from cookbooks. At least not nearly as frequently as we'd like to/promise ourselves we will/tell others we do.
PHOENIX — State officials are trying to delay a federal appellate court hearing on the question of whether the Tohono O'odham Nation can build a casino on the edge of Glendale.
Step right up and meet the man who, some say, is the greatest man in American history — George Washington. Though, you will actually be meeting George Fairfax, the man who portrays Washington for a living. Originally from Virginia, Fairfax lives and breathes Washington and will transport you through time to a place where the General is the most respected man in the country.
Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (English translation: amnesty) like to point out that immigrants in the past have flocked to America and made important contributions to our nation. That’s true, but the America of 1913 was different from 2013 in ways that greatly affect the probability that immigrants will become contributing citizens.
I believe the City of Apache Junction made a major mistake when they agreed to the erroneous street plan for Apache Trail North. Now we have portable speed limit signs flashing fifteen (15) miles per hour, much like a school zone, at the north and south entrance to a road that could have been two lanes of traffic in each direction with a center turning lane, which (in my opinion) would have been much more practicable.
John McCain is still seething about the government shutdown and those darn conservative upstarts who caused it. For no good reason, the lives of thousands were interrupted in “real and painful” ways.
CHICAGO — Doctors 2 parents: Limit kids' tweeting, texting & keep smartphones, laptops out of bedrooms. #goodluckwiththat.
I am puzzled, and quite frankly amused, at all the rhetoric being spewed out from the left about who’s to blame for the government shutdown.
“CNN claims that the federal government is not spending $300 million dollars a day since the shutdown. Fox News states that the government is borrowing $300 million a day less since the shutdown. What we have here is a difference in perspective.”
America’s middle class used to be the proud backbone of our economy. They made things, things of value that other people would pay for. Not only did the middle class prosper, they were the driver of America’s emergence as the world’s economic superpower.
A story like that at the heart of "Runner Runner," about a young American gambler who gets sucked way above his head into the criminal doings of a big-time offshore operator, would have found its ideal life as a tough, punchy, black-and-white programmer back in the 1950s. Today, it would have been most viable as a grandiose character study done on an operatic scale by a filmmaker like Martin Scorsese or Michael Mann. What's actually up onscreen in this vaguely ambitious but tawdry melodrama falls into an in-between no man's land that endows it with no distinction whatsoever, a work lacking both style and insight into the netherworld it seeks to reveal. Despite an intriguing setup and Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake heading the cast, this Fox release holds a losing box-office hand.
A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the appointment of an independent monitor and a community advisory board to ensure that an Arizona sheriff is complying with constitutional requirements after finding his office engages in racial profiling.
I am writing about Bill Richardson’s thoughtful column: “Our new crime-riddled ‘Five C’s’ and what to do about them” (Commentary, Tribune, Sept. 18).
Campo Verde continued its successful start to the 2013 season with a 31-8 win over Gilbert on Thursday night at Campo Verde. The Coyotes (4-0) led 17-0 at halftime and except for the third quarter controlled the game on both sides of the ball.
In the 2012 presidential campaign, President Obama claimed Detroit as evidence of his successful policies: “We refused to let Detroit go bankrupt. We bet on American workers and American ingenuity and, three years later, that is paying off in a big way.”
On and off screen, it's been a bruising summer for Hollywood.
U.S. Bureau of Land Management officials say they plan to remove only 1,300 wild horses and burros from the range across the West this summer because of budget constraints and overflowing holding pens.
When did our so-called “Minorities” take over America? I don’t remember Italian-American, German-American, Norwegian-American, Swedish-American, Chinese- American, Indian-American, Pakistani-American, Japanese- American, Russian-American, Armenian-American first generation (off the boat, now off the plane) children being given years and years of “English as a Second Language” learning assistance. Many of these children had to learn a whole new alphabet. On top of that, to learn to read from right to left and from horizontally instead of vertically. Why did these “legal” immigrant children learn English in usually a year, if not less, and it takes our Spanish-speaking Children (same alphabet, same reading the words from right to left) years and years? And still, many read and speak English at a fifth-grade level when they graduate from the 12th grade?
