Video Game Review: 'Brutal Legend'

No style of music has taken more of a beating over the years than heavy metal. Critics don't respect it, kids are more likely to spend their allowances on hip-hop, and parents stopped worrying long ago about whether Black Sabbath was going to turn their teens into devil worshippers.

Obama is a healer

President Barack Obama recognizes the responsibility ensuing to the Office of the President of the United States.
