Like rats leaving a sinking ship, this past month we have seen Democrat party stalwarts abandoning their leader, President Barack Obama, left and right. San Francisco’s uberprogressive, liberal Sen.

When the name “Falcon Field Airport” is mentioned, the next thing people often ask is, “Isn’t that place getting shut down?” Nothing could be further from the truth.
Love others as much as you love yourself,” Jesus told his followers. These words are considerably more than a sugary Sunday-school story. For those who take these words to heart, “love others” has profound, life-altering implications, not all of which are warm and fuzzy. Consider the life of Bernard Lichtenberg, arrested seven decades ago. His crime: He loved. Lichtenberg was a Catholic priest serving in Berlin before the outbreak of World War 2. When Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party came to power, he recognized the coming terror better than most, and made it his ambition to help the Jewish people and other persecuted groups.
… OK, he won’t be ready until 2015, when Ian McKellen will play an elderly Sherlock Holmes drawn out of retirement after World War II in Mr. Holmes. But you can see him here in a first glimpse, and I’m still/already excited.

“If Republicans are blaming Hillary Clinton for the deaths at Benghazi, I believe that George Schultz should be held responsible for the 241 dead servicemen killed in Beirut, Lebanon by terrorist suicide bombers. But they won’t because that would show them as the hypocrites they are, not to mention it would sully the memory of Saint Ronald.
No one can blame Gareth Edwards for admittedly feeling nervous when asked to helm a remake of the biggest monster movie of all time. Sure, the only other film he had directed happened to be 2010's "Monsters." But this time, it was Godzilla.

DENVER — Domo isn't just a Japanese restaurant. It's a place where you can immerse yourself in Japanese culture — by visiting a museum that evokes a northern Japanese farmhouse, strolling in a garden studded with Buddha statues, or even taking a martial arts class in the lovingly converted former warehouse where the restaurant compound is located.
