There is arrogance in sports. And then there is arrogance without cause in sports.
Half a century ago, Sid Davis was the first journalist to learn John Kennedy had died. Instead of breaking the biggest the biggest news story in the world, he waited because he wanted to make sure he was right. It is hard to image a journalist making the same choice nowadays amid our modern cacophony of inaccurate reporting, but perhaps Davis has something to teach us.
Attorney General Eric Holder says American Airlines and US Airways must make broad concessions if they want to settle a lawsuit blocking their proposed merger.
PHOENIX — A call Thursday by President Obama on the Republican-controlled House to approve immigration reform this year is getting a decidedly cool reception from Gov. Jan Brewer.
Since President Reagan’s “Open Gate” in 1986, it was estimated that we had 11 million so-called “illegal immigrants” in the country. According to present statistics I am reading, we still have 11 million on board. One would think we have done a great job in “closing the gate.” Reagan always used the term “fuzzy math.” I wonder who is doing the math on those statistics. It reminds me of the 1950s toothpaste commercial which claimed “nine out of 10 doctors recommend ‘brand X’ toothpaste.” An investigation revealed that the doctors were gynecologists. Fuzzy math again. We don’t know who and what to believe coming out of Washington.
A federal judge said Friday that the government's lawsuit to block the proposed merger of American Airlines and US Airways will start Nov. 25, a timetable favored by the airlines.
Sen. John McCain is both a passionate and pragmatic elected official. Both sides of him were on display Tuesday at the Mesa Arts Center.
"You hear nothing. You see nothing. You only serve." Such are the instructions Cecil Gaines receives as he embarks on his daunting new job at the Eisenhower White House in "Lee Daniels' The Butler."
I’ve been thinking about the sorry state of American culture, and that made me reminisce about the Cold War.

“I want our leaders in Arizona to tell us what happened to the $50 million that was received from the bank settlement after the short sale/foreclosure fiasco.”
Social Security Disability Insurance is turning into a monster. It has experienced exponential growth, much like other big government entitlement programs. As a consequence, it threatens to run out of money by 2016. Worse, it weakens our economy and has become yet another dark cloud over our financial future.
Fearing a Democrat political tsunami in 2014, Gov. Jan Brewer urged fellow Republicans on Friday to stop targeting their GOP colleagues who supported her Medicaid expansion.
The attorney general of Texas and counterparts in other states joined a U.S. Department of Justice review of the proposed merger between American Airlines and US Airways.
You’ve gotta hand it to Republican Gov. Jan Brewer. She cleverly played her politics over the past few months as she made her puzzling shift toward Obamacare in order to expand Medicaid, making Arizona the 24th state to do so.
A bridge collapse has killed one person at a Loop 202 construction site in Mesa.
For District 25 state Sen. Bob Worsley, the vote to approve Gov. Jan Brewer’s $8.8 billion budget with the Medicaid expansion intact was simply the logical thing to do.
“With the right to bear arms comes a great responsibility to use caution and common sense on handgun purchases. And it’s just plain common sense that there be a waiting period to allow local law-enforcement officials to conduct background checks on those who wish to purchase handguns.” That’s a quote from former President Ronald Reagan in 1991. In addition to supporting background checks on gun sales, President Reagan championed the original assault weapons ban and urged Congress to pass the Brady Act. As governor of California, he signed the Mulford Act, which prohibited the open carrying of firearms in public.
“There they go again!” Ronald Reagan’s words echoed in my mind as I read Rod Livdahl’s recent letter supporting a raise in the minimum wage.
WASHINGTON — The Republican Party, having lost the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections, confronts a dilemma that's easier to describe than to solve: How can it broaden its appeal to up-for-grabs voters without alienating its conservative base?
It ended soon after it began, this revolution. Not with a bang, or even a whimper. The soldiers, unsure of their cause, simply left the battlefield. As the sun set on the retreating army, the sun also set on the vision of a shining city on a hill, which remains darkened to this day.
WASHINGTON — This may be the year Congress decides what to do about the millions of immigrants living illegally in the U.S. And this may be the week when a bipartisan group of senators makes public details of the overhaul plan it has been negotiating for months.
Finally some actual facts! That’s what I was hoping to find when I opened Rod Livdahl’s letter about the “tickle up effect”. Alas, it was not so. It was simply more “theory,” not supported by actual facts in an attempt to disparage President Reagan’s implementation of supply side economics. So I took one statistic, the unemployment rate, and did some research. These facts paint an interesting picture:
Arizona high schoolers may soon be rid of having to pass AIMS -- or any standardized test -- to graduate.
