    As the late Harry Caray might have said, "It might be ... It could be ... IT IS!" After blowing a 6-3 lead in the bottom of the eighth inning and enduring a 17-minute rain delay after the ninth, the Chicago Cubs scored two runs in the top of the 10th and held on to defeat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in Game 7 of the World Series to win the franchise's first title since 1908. As third baseman Kris Bryant threw out pinch-hitter Michael Martinez on a soft ground ball, Cubs fans at Progressive Field in Cleveland, outside Wrigley Field...

    Men should have the same right as women to decide not be parents, according to a controversial new proposal from the Liberal Party’s youth wing in western Sweden (LUF Väst).Men who don’t want to become fathers should be permitted to have a “legal abortion” up to the 18th week of a woman’s pregnancy, say the young liberals. The cut-off date coincides with the last week in which a woman can terminate a pregnancy in Sweden. “This means a man would renounce the duties and rights of parenthood,” LUF Väst chairman Marcus Nilsen told The Local. By signing up for a...

    Ben Carson, the retired neurosurgeon who briefly led the Republican presidential race before his campaign began an extended public implosion, will tell his supporters in a statement Wednesday afternoon that he does not see a "path forward" and will not attend Thursday's debate in Detroit, according to two Republicans familiar with his plans. Carson, however, will not formally suspend his campaign. Instead, the Republicans said, he has decided to make a speech about his political future on Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland, just outside of Washington. But the announcement will serve as an acknowledgment that Carson's...

    Marine veteran Jon Hammar Jr., who was arrested on a dubious weapon charge in August was released today from the notorious CEDES prison, according to his attorney. Eddie Varon-Levy said he and Hammar Jr. are currently at the Matamoros, Mexico-Brownsville, Texas border crossing where he was arrested Aug. 13, waiting to be processed to proceed across the bridge that spans the Rio Grande River. Hammar Jr., is expected to be reunited with his father, who immediately flew to Brownsville this morning after learning from Varon-Levy that a judge in Mexico had dropped the felony charge because of a civil rights...

    DETROIT -- Matthew Stafford led a victory-lap parade around the perimeter of Ford Field, high-fiving fans that have been waiting since 1999 for the Detroit Lions to make the playoffs. With the crowd chanting "Play-offs! Play-offs!" as the final few minutes ticked away, Detroit clinched a postseason spot thanks to Stafford's three touchdown passes in a 38-10 win over the San Diego Chargers on Saturday. Stafford appeared to be touched by the face-to-face interaction with fans hanging over the railing to reach his raised right hand. "You could just get a sense of how much it meant to them," Stafford...

    RUSH: It's only taken two years, and, what, seven months. Heck, longer than that. I mean I saw it back during the campaign. I'm talking about who Obama really is, this petulant, self-absorbed, egoistic little man-child. Even David Brooks is disappointed. He still likes the substance, but he can't believe how childish Obama's acting. Do you remember, folks, there was a book out there, you women will remember this. There's a book out there, I don't know, some years ago.

    At the top of Thursday's CBS Early Show, co-host Chris Wragge acknowledged for the first time on the network that members of Congress were criticizing the Obama administration for failing to seek their approval on military action in Libya: "In Washington, the Speaker of the House takes on President Obama as to why he didn't talk to Congress before launching the attacks." While that tease seemed to suggest further discussion of the criticism during the show's Libya coverage, not a single word was mentioned throughout the rest of the broadcast. If a viewer missed those six seconds they would have...

    Amazing. Not that The One would try an end-around Congress; that’s been his policy M.O. ever since the GOP took back the House. No, what’s amazing is that President Present took sole ownership of this very risky mission instead of forcing Congress to share the blame by demanding an authorization for the operation. If he had gone to Reid and Boehner and asked for an AUMF, he’d have a good chance of getting one. Progressives would have been nervous about another adventure and some tea partiers would have balked at the cost, but Democrats wouldn’t want to defy a president...

    For Democrats in the South, the most ominous part of a disastrous year may not be what happened on Election Day but what has happened in the weeks since. After suffering a historic rout — in which nearly every white Deep South Democrat in the U.S. House was defeated and Republicans took over or gained seats in legislatures across the region — the party’s ranks in Dixie have thinned even further. In Georgia, Louisiana and Alabama, Democratic state legislators have become Republicans, concluding that there is no future in the party that once dominated the so-called Solid South. That the...

    In January, for the first time in 64 years, there will be no member of the Kennedy family holding office in Washington. The chain remained unbroken from 1946, when JFK was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, until this year, when JFK's nephew Patrick Kennedy, retired from the U.S. House.

    Michael Savage, the nation's No. 4-rated radio talk show host, blasted America for either disregarding or covering up questions of Barack Obama's eligibility to serve in the Oval Office and the possibility that "the presidency may have been usurped by a foreign power." "To have elected an unknown man of unknown origin, a man who's probably not even an American citizen – How can the whole military not know this?" Savage asked on air this past week. "How could the entire military establishment not be asking the same question that millions of Americans are asking? "Do you think it's plausible...

    New sunspot 1035 is growing rapidly and it is now seven times wider than Earth. This makes it an easy target for backyard solar telescopes. ... The magnetic polarity of the spot identifies it as a member of Solar Cycle 24--the cycle we've been waiting for to end the deepest solar minimum in nearly a century. One spot isn't enough to end the lull, but sunspot 1035 could herald bigger things to come.

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Outraged by public corruption and economic woes, Cuyahoga County voted Tuesday to dramatically restructure a government that dates back 200 years. The historic 2-to-1 vote in favor of Issue 6 pushes Ohio's largest county into an era of change and reflects the public's hopes for honesty and a new prosperity. "The need for change has been clear for years, but the status quo dies hard," said State Sen. Nina Turner of Cleveland, an Issue 6 backer. While passing Issue 6, voters rejected a competing reform proposal, known as Issue 5, which was backed by some of the...
