Everything is unexpected in an unserious Washington
By: Hugh Hewitt
Readers of the New York Times on the morning of Sept. 10, 2001, found a front page lead on how congressional leaders were in talks about economic stimulus and below-the-fold stories on school dress codes and the morning television ratings races. The summer of 1950 was just another post-war summer, and on June 23 the Indians’ Luke Easter hit the longest ball in Cleveland Stadium history, 477 feet, into the upper deck at Muny, the “mistake on the lake,” Section 4.

By: 60 Plus Association
The 60 Plus Association, the acknowledged conservative alternative to the liberal AARP and home to 7.2 million senior citizen activists, today cited the implementation of Obamacare as the cause for the nation’s failure to create new jobs, with the Department of Labor noting only 88,000 jobs were created in March.

By: Josh Kraushaar
