Monday, June 6, marked the 67th anniversary of D-Day. For those who forgot (or never knew), on June 6, 1944, the largest armada of ships, planes, people and equipment ever assembled crossed the English Channel and 150,000 fighting men landed on the beaches and fields of Normandy.

* Rightly or wrongly, presidents generally get the credit or the blame for economic conditions in the country, as most voters place responsibility on the chief executive rather than Congress. In that regard, President Obama faces headwinds in his re-election efforts. He also is up against an historical precedent that's surprising: if he wins another term in the White House in November of next year, it will be only the second time in history that three consecutive presidents have won back-to-back terms. The last time it occurred was in 1801-1825, when Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe all were ...

These items are the budget, gubernatorial vetoes, conference and free conference reports, redistricting, and appointments. This end-of-session resolution is called a Sine Die Resolution because it dictates how and when the General Assembly will conclude the session. To adjourn sine die means to adjourn for an indefinite period. So when we adjourn sine die, the General Assembly does not plan to meet – barring any emergencies – until the constitutionally mandated date of the second Tuesday in ...

Life is messy. As a parent, that day will come when you walk into a giant mess created by your "angelic" children. When you see the mess, your first reaction is to yell and get upset. But, in many situations your children don't even realize they are doing anything wrong. Whether you have frosting all over the couch or flour all over the floor, you have to do something about the situation at hand. Here are a few ideas of what to do when you don't really know what to do.
Lists can rule over us like dictators who sport perfectly coiffed hair, pterodactyl brooches and high heels. Many of us know what it's like to be governed by our own to-do lists, driving some of us to become "anti-list-ivists" who refuse to write anything down.
