Want free books? I know a place

Think about the last time you were in a giant chain bookstore, with its aisles of best-sellers, its huge children's section, its walls of mysteries and rooms of romances.

Charles Vignola: Syria offers us no good choices

Today, President Obama will address the nation and try to convince a skeptical American public why it's important to take limited military action in Syria as retaliation for President Bashar al-Assad last month allowing chemical weapons to be used against civilians, killing nearly 1,500 people, including more than 400 children, with sarin gas.

Diana West: Free the Leavenworth 10-plus

Does any American believe that Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance, 28, should remain in a military prison for the next 20 years for "murder" after giving a legitimate order to his soldiers to fire at three Afghan men on motorcycles, killing two in the process?

Giving it the old (community) college try

Junior and Missy's parents are driving them 12 hours away from their hometown to The University of Getting Out of My Parents' House. Sure, there are plenty of local community colleges and state schools they could have attended, but then they would have to come home every night to live with those stupid cash machines who raised them.
