May 17, 2013 - So what really happened in the middle of the night this morning at a house near Hofstra University on Long Island? What we know as I write this is a man broke into a house where three young women were living. He had a gun, and told one of the women to go to the bank and withdraw money. She did, but also called cops. They arrived at the house, shots were fired inside, and the gunman and one of the young women were killed.

May 7, 2013 - Silly me. Here I was feeling a little compassion for New Jersey Gov. Christie, after the announcement that he had surgery to shrink his stomach so he wouldn't eat so much. Good for him. And good for him for saying he's thinking about his family, to make sure he's around for a while.
