Kathleen Parker: Waiting for Obamacare

Posted 9/23/2013 in National Columns

Ask Rufus: The 70-year-old roots of the Air Force Ball

Posted 9/22/2013 in Local Columns

Shannon Bardwell: Murderous mantis

Posted 9/21/2013 in Local Columns

The praying mantis had the advantage, as his head rotates 180 degrees. His forearms were folded in prayer; he looked so delicate, so pious. His very name "mantis" means "prophet" in Greek. But if there ever was a wolf in sheep's clothing, it is the praying mantis.
