You can say, and even believe, that the U.S. has the best health care system in the world if, as I did for many years, you associate only with other folks who share the same world view as you do and if you watch, read and listen to the media that reinforce your preconceived notions.
The area's deep-rooted agricultural heritage has meshed with kitchen savvy to make Saugerties a stomping ground for culinary geeks. If that's not enough to entice you, Jimmy Fallon was raised here and locals couldn't be prouder or more pleased to chat about their hometown boy.
It's ironic that Mr. Peabody & Sherman has a sequence involving the Trojan horse. Because according to the director of this production, this animated feature is actually something of a Trojan horse in and of itself.
Surveying the reconfigured talk show landscape, I became annoyed that everybody gets to do a monologue but me. After all, I have hilarious thoughts as...
SB 1062 in Arizona was vetoed by Governor Jan Brewer! But not everyone is so happy about it. Amidst the hatred, there was actually more entertaining hatred found on Twitter.

Okay, I'm sorry. Even Stephen Colbert couldn't help fawning over these two the other night --neither can I. If you could bottle whatever it is Mer...
If passed, the ban on same-sex marriages could have devastating consequences on upwards of 86 percent of current legal unions, and up to 60 percent of Jewish newlyweds.

Mid-April and mid-July and mid-September. That's when we will all have other things to do and when life can get in the way of normal viewing patterns and things we once thought important. That's when Fallon's ability to draw an audience will be truly tested.
Is the transition from Jay Leno to Jimmy Fallon news simply because it's out with the old and in with new? Hardly. The long-time comedian and social media genius spent the past four years earning late night cred on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC.
This isn't about Bill Carter. This is about being noted as a parenthetical, reaffirming what I feel has been an underlying, yet consistent inconsistency with how I am handled as the only woman in a traditionally male field.
