Antonovich blasts state inmate release

LOS ANGELES COUNTY - "Releasing criminals is a problem not a solution -- opening a Pandora's Box that threatens public safety and places additional burdens on local law enforcement and taxpayers," said Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich on the state's planned release of more than 6,500 inmates. "It is a reckless and irresponsible band-aid on a wound that could hemorrhage into a public safety crisis."

Review: 'Edge of Darkness'

Can we think of Mel Gibson simply as an action hero? A star whose personal baggage doesn't upstage his performances? I find that I can.

State of the Union speech rang hollow

Is it me, or was the president's State of the Union address one of the most pitiful speeches made by a sitting president? Replete with hyperbole, Bush-bashing, hypocrisy, half-truths and blame avoidance, President Barack Obama was all too predictable.
