    President Obama on Sunday defended his trip to Burma, insisting that the visit Monday is “not an endorsement” of the nation’s long-repressive leadership but rather an acknowledgment that the country is making progress toward reform. “I don’t think anybody is under any illusion that Burma has arrived, that they’re where they need to be,” Obama said at a joint news conference with Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to begin his three-country Asia trip. President Obama arrived in Thailand on Sunday on his first foreign trip since winning a second term. His visit is designed to expand the U.S. economic and...

    Take a one minute tour of today's Detroit from the safety of your home. Its not hard to believe that Michigan deserves to sing the blues because it is such a Blue State. Democrat Governors, Congressman, Senators, Mayors, Councilmen, and the UAW have been ignoring the problems since the 1960's. At least Dearbornistan has some semblance of law (quasi Sharia) and order, but like African-Americans who have carved out their own and separate culture, so are Moslems desiring to supercede American culture with their own, thus fracturing a broken state even more.

    Hats off to Cameron Diaz, who was out till well after 4am on the morning of the Oscars at the party Harvey Weinstein threw at Soho House's sexy digs on Sunset Boulevard. She had about four hours sleep before she had to try on a rack of gowns for the Academy Awards. Incredibly, she was full of vim when she stopped to say 'Hi' to me on the Oscar red carpet. She did her little gig on stage for the awards show.

    Spring break has turned violent and deadly in unrelated incidents on Galveston Island. A 16-year-old girl from Deer Park drowned amid strong winds and currents. Elsewhere, a number of fights capped a concert on East Beach. A dozen were arrested. At spring break destinations everywhere, these scenes are often repeated. Yet psychologist Laurence Abrams says teens are just trying to enjoy themselves and the alcohol, sex and trouble tend to come with that. "They're not trying to hurt themselves. They're trying to have fun. Sometimes they make mistakes, as we all do. I'm not in favor of it. Don't misunderstand...

    Feb. 23, 2006 - Four months ago, Bode Miller sat across from me in the bar of a New York City hotel and shared his idea of what a perfect two weeks in Torino would look like. “For me,” he said, “the ideal Olympics would be to go in with all that pressure, all that attention and have performances that are literally tear-jerking, that make people put their heads down because they’re embarrassed at how emotional they’re getting, that make people want to try sports, talk to their kids, call their f---ing ex-wives—and come away with no medals.

    Rep. Dennis Kucinich would like to cut loose with Al Sharpton at a party, but the reverend said he'd prefer Sen. John Kerry's wife. Asked by a young woman at Tuesday's Democratic debate who they'd most like to "party with," candidates gave answers that elicited whoops and hollers from the young crowd. Kerry said he changed his answer after hearing that a fellow candidate would prefer hanging out with his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry. "I was going to choose Carol Moseley Braun," Kerry said to Sharpton. "But now I'm going to have to choose you so I can keep an...

    Over a year and a half into the Bush II administration, W magazine has blown the lid off the deep secret about the social whir at the White House under President George W. Bush – there isn't a whir. In its October issue, the New York-based fashion and style periodical features a story called "The Big Chill," about the lack of social buzz in Washington. Of course, most anybody in Dallas, Austin or Midland could have told them this before George W. ever put his hand on the Bible. If you expected George W. Bush the party animal to show...
