    . See Alex Sink ponies up to Charlie Crist campaign "Campaign finance reports show that on Jan. 31, Sink wrote a $1,000 check to Crist." So now, there is no question that Alex Sink not only supports Charlie Crist, she is actually willing to finance Charlie’s election campaign. The question is, should Floridians be as enthusiastic as Alex Sink is to see Charlie Crist get elected? Let us recall what Charlie Crist stands for: Are we to forget when Charlie Crist in 2009, greeted Obama’s trip to Florida with the infamous BIG HUG? Are we to forget that Mr. Crist...

    Major League Baseball is threatening to kick Alex Rodriguez out of the game for life unless the New York Yankees star agrees not to fight a lengthy suspension for his role in the sport's latest drug scandal, according to a person familiar with the discussions. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized. Whether Commissioner Bud Selig would actually issue a lifetime suspension was unclear and a permanent ban could be shortened by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz to about 200 games, the person said. The number of players likely to be...

    After examining all the details that emerged on Friday relating to the efforts by members of President Barack Obama’s administration to remove references to Islamic terrorism when explaining the reasons behind the 2012 attack on an American consulate in Benghazi, the panel guests on MSNBC’s Now agreed that the appearance of a scandal makes the White House “look terrible.” One guest even suggested that the controversy could lead to impeachment proceedings against the president. NBC Reporter Kelly O’Donnell read from portions of emails in which high ranking State Department officials coordinated with the CIA to alter the official talking points...

    A huge story on July 13 was the death of Obama campaign staffer Alex Okrent. Apparently, he had been at Obama’s campaign headquarters in Chicago, fine one minute, dead the next. Witnesses say he collapsed, whereby paramedics were called, and the next thing everyone knows, he’s dead. Young, twenty-nine years old? Mysteriously dies? Nothing to see here, move on… Except… Per the Obama campaign, Okrent had been a staffer going all the way back to Obama’s 2004 U.S. senate campaign—being on staff for eight years. That’s a long time. The guy must have a lot of history. A lot of...

    Does Alex Trebek owe Republicans equal time on his Jeopardy! game show? Answer: Yes, the show has become overrun by Democratic politicians and is only going to get even more politically imbalanced in the days to come. Last week and this week, the popular game show, in which contestants are given clues and must provide the answer in the form of a question, has been presenting its annual "Teen Tournament" shows with young Americans as contestants -- and First Lady Michelle Obama presenting some of the clues. The show is being broadcast from Washington DC during the Teen Tournament. On...

    Alex Burns of Politico has developed a bad case of Peter Jennings Syndrome, right down to accusing the voters of a "tantrum-like response" directed at Obama on gas prices. So far, he writes, the campaign "has been more like a game of Marco Polo, as a hapless gang of Republican candidates and a damaged, frantic incumbent try to connect with a historically fickle and frustrated electorate." The voters are a gaggle of Gumps: "And 'fickle' is a nice way of describing the voters of 2012, who appear to be wandering, confused and Forrest Gump-like through the experience of a presidential...

The building is located on Sixth Street, a few blocks away from B&M International Bridge. Official information from the PGR hasn’t been released and calls to their public relations office in Reynosa went unanswered this morning. A source with firsthand knowledge of criminal activity in Matamoros reported that several gunmen in SUV’s fired upon the building late Monday or Tuesday morning.

    Based on the various media accounts I've read it's a mess, reminiscent of Robert Heinlein's little ditty, When in danger and in doubt Run in circles, scream and shout! The danger and the doubt are certainly present -- probably as much of the latter as of the former, and the screaming and shouting are abundant. It seems as though an analogy to elephant matings is appropriate: lots of stomping of feet and roaring, everything done at a high level, with results, maybe, in eleven months. While the stomping and shouting are going on at all levels, high and low, numerous...

The primary dynamic computer model tracks are showing landfalls on the south Texas coast, between Brownsville and Corpus Christi. The official forecast has been creeping northward, and I would expect further northward shifts. But Alex remains a tough storm to forecast. Although the environment remains favorable for hurricane formation, the models (both NMC's and our in house versions) for some reason are not intensifying the storm much. In fact, the HWRF is not even allowing Alex to become a hurricane before landfall....

Alex was diagnosed with cancer two days before her first birthday, and as she got older, she became quite an activist: In 2000, when she was just four years old, Alex told her parents she wanted to raise money for cancer research. She chose a time-honored kid's project--a front-yard lemonade stand--but unlike most lemonade stands, she raised $2,000 in a single day. Soon, Alex's friends joined in to help, opening lemonade...

The front-running Massachusetts senator was “the right character to bring America forward”, Clark told cheering students in Madison. “He will stand up to the Republican attack dogs and send them home licking their wounds.” Kerry was equally generous. Clark had shown “great selflessness and great courage” by ending his campaign and offering his support to a former rival. It was exactly the display of solidarity that many...

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - On the surface, Rob Reiner's "Alex & Emma" looks to have the right stuff to return the filmmaker to firmer commercial footing after 1999's "The Story of Us." Pairing two bankable actors as likable Kate Hudson and Luke Wilson in a romantic comedy would seem like a recipe for success, but the end result proves to be a dull, draggy disappointment. Loosely based on "The Gambler," an autobiographical short story by Fyodor Dostoevsky about a debt-ridden, gambling-addicted author who must deliver a new book within 30 days or forfeit the rights to all of his...
