Same-sex unions: Yes, they will hurt marriage

Defenders of the same-sex marriages that began this month in California have repeatedly claimed the new definition of marriage will in no way hurt male-female marriages.

Extreme neighborhood makeover

Neighborhoods. They are the fabric of our society. Who can't remember his or her neighborhood growing up, and most likely the names of the families who lived in the houses on that block.

Tim Russert was one in a million
