Every person has a timeline of their own life, made up of the big moments in it -- the personal bests and worsts that singe their memories. On my timeline, one of those worsts came on November 3, 2004, when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.

F. Scott Fitzgerald famously uttered "there are no second acts in American lives" but bless his heart, the besotted scribe seems blissfully unaware of the loophole large enough to taxi a C- 130 through that exists for American politicians.
Here is our exclusive and nonexistent interview with Mr. Secured-Undisclosed Location himself (written, of course, in rhyming, Dick-ensian verse). Our one question to Cheney: "Why can't you just say you're sorry?"
The issue of "secret children" is becoming a weekly headline. This week it's former Senator Domenici, last week Representative Cohen. Before that, the...
By using a loophole in the tax code, some individuals have organized their businesses in such a way that their earnings, what you and I would call "wages," can technically be called "profits" and therefore are not subject to Medicare tax.
We can't have it both ways, ladies; we can't demand the "right to party" along with the boys then expect to be treated with kid gloves when we're caught with our pants down too, any more than Clinton, Weiner, Spitzer or Petraeus could. Paula Broadwell is no Monica Lewinsky.
The bottom line is this is a man who is very good at what he does professionally, and we need him. It's a major loss for our country. Cheating on your spouse is never a good idea, but what does that have to do with Petraeus' ability to run the CIA?

In an unusual development, former CIA Director David Petraeus will be teaming up with former New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, former U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner, and former Senator John Edwards to secretly fight crime as a group called The Insatiables.
Why do politicians believe they can lie and not get caught? Particularly in this age of the Internet and its army of professional and amateur fact checkers, the chances of lies standing up under the glare of the inevitable cyber-scrutiny are slim to none.
Let's further suppose that, tax issue averted, Mitt Romney wins a narrow victory in November. How much access could that wealthy donor who paid the ransom expect?
The Occupy movement seems to have all but disappeared from media coverage over the past months. Is this due to the fever pitch of the presidential campaign, or has the movement's time come and gone?
Within days of Rielle Hunter promoting her book coming out -- and her finally, freely, spouting her truth, her version of their journey together -- it...
There's absolutely no justification for launching a full-on assault on Elizabeth Edwards. Rielle, you have said that you feel it is your "duty" to Edwards and his three children with Elizabeth to write the book which reveals your side of the story.
