    Dinosaurs in Noahs vineyard by David Lewis The carving (see image at right), which appears to show two dinosaurs, is on an outside wall of the bell-tower of a fourteenth century church in the Republic of Georgia. Holy Trinity Church (also known as Tsminda Sameba) is on Mount Gergeti, near Stephantsminda village, in the Mount Kazbegi areaclose to the borders with North Ossetia and Ingushetia. When I visited this area in 2006 and saw the carvings, I asked a Georgian cleric at the church what they depicted. He commented that they looked like dinosaurs, and he had no idea when...

    A 24-year-old former substitute teacher from Iowa who was arrested in July after admitting to a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student says he had swept her off her feet with love notes scribbled on Post-Its. Mary Beth Haglin, of Cedar Rapids, has been charged with misdemeanor sexual exploitation by a school employee in connection to her six-month tryst with a male student at Washington High School. On Wednesday, Haglin pleaded not guilty to the charge in writing, and her trial date has been set for November 14. If convicted, she could face up to two years in prison and...

    Forget Villanova the biggest winners in basketball are, and always will be, the Harlem Globetrotters. Definitive statistics are elusive, but the latest ESPN tally I found has the Harlem Globetrotters beating their longtime rivals, the Washington Generals, 13,994 times out of their last 14,000 games. Perhaps Bernie Sanders will soon be made aware of this the theatrical presentation of a competitive sport and better understand the role the DNC and Clinton forces have in mind for him, the venerable liberal malcontent far in left field: unthreatening, entertaining, certain to lose.

    Cruz's reception in New York was chilly. Back in January, Ted Cruz made the mistake of assuming the rest of America still hates New York. His dismissal of "New York values" didn't endear him to the Empire State Governor Cuomo demanded an apology from Cruz, and the New York Daily News did what the New York Daily News does best and as expected, the comment came back to haunt him as he campaigned in the Bronx on Wednesday. Meanwhile, at a massive rally in Long Island, Donald Trump, who's polling ahead of Cruz in New York by a...

Former Bush communications director Tim Miller called Christie "pathetic" and suggested he bonded with Trump over a "big meal," an apparent reference to Christie's weight. And former chief strategist David Kochel compared the endorsement to a "fat kid" surrendering his lunch money to a "bully."

    In a high-profile speech in Harlem on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton is expected to address the issue of systemic racism, and offer solutions for how to break down the barriers that hold back African American families. The speech is part of Clinton’s effort in recent days— as she closes in on the South Carolina primary and turns her attention toward more diverse March states — to show that she views racism and discrimination as stand-alone problems in American in need of their own solutions. Her approach appears designed to highlight the contrast with her chief rival Bernie Sanders, who so far...

    Donald Trump is unelectable because he is disliked by a large majority of the American population. In contrast, The biggest attack on Ted Cruz lodged by his detractors is that he is loathed inside Washington, especially in the Senate. We know why Trump is disliked by the American public: he is a shallow, unprincipled, insincere, obnoxious, egomaniacal jackass. Here is an example of why Cruz is disliked by Beltway pols: Despite being embroiled in the heat of the most important weeks of this presidential campaign, Cruz sent word to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that he was placing a hold...

The measure prevents a sudden halt in infrastructure funding that was slated to begin May 31. But White House press secretary Josh Earnest criticized the stopgap bill as a punt and urged Congress to pass a long-term measure to fund road projects. Its the presidents view that the era of short-term patches ... must come to an end, Earnest told reporters. Earnest noted it was the 33rd temporary fix for highway funding since 2008.

Kerry said that whatever government will be formed, he hoped it would be able to "negotiate and move towards resolving differences between Israelis and Palestinians." In April, Kerry's push for peace talks were torpedoed right ahead of their nine-month deadline by the Palestinian Authority (PA), which formed a unity agreement with Hamas after breaching the Oslo Accords by making unilateral moves to join international conventions. The PA has been inciting and praising the recent spree of high-profile terror attacks concentrated in...

But also, I think if you look back at 2012 and the series of interviews the sitting president of the United States gave, probably the toughest interview he had was with Jon Stewart.
