    MK Ahmad Tibi (Raam Taal) berated Arab citizens of Israel Saturday for their relatively low turnout in the elections and blamed them for the loss of his party's fifth seat in the final vote count. Early counting gave the party five seats and would have left MK Taleb a-Sana in the parliament. However, upon completion of the counting of the "double envelope" votes, which are mostly those of soldiers, it turned out that Raam-Taal would only have four MKs. The seat they "lost" went to Bayit Yehudi and allowed Shuli Muallem, widow of Lt. Col. Moshe Muallem, a resident of...

    A year ago, Primitivo Morales had a home in the suburbs, two children in college and two successful businesses on E. Lake Street in Minneapolis. But the economic downturn, combined with cranked-up immigration enforcement, has driven customers away and crushed his personal finances. After 25 years in the United States, he now is reluctantly making plans to return to Mexico. Morales, 45, is part of a trend unfolding across the state and the nation. Latinos in the prime of their work life are returning home because their dreams have collapsed along with the economy. The numbers are still relatively small,...

    Six weeks before Kyle Paxman’s scheduled wedding, a stranger walked into her office with e-mail messages and other evidence that Ms. Paxman’s fiancé was cheating on her — with the stranger’s girlfriend. “The dress had arrived, the flowers were done, the menus were chosen,” said Ms. Paxman, manager of two food and beverage outlets at La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, Calif. “One hundred and eighty guests had tickets from all over the country and the Virgin Islands to come and make a weekend of my wedding.” But rather than cancel the reception, planned for this Saturday in Vermont,...

    Press Release Source: The Baltimore Sun Sun Readership Up as Circulation Declines Slow Monday May 8, 5:58 pm ET Sun Issues Correction to ABC FAS-Fax Release BALTIMORE, May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Even as the latest Audit Bureau of Circulations FAS-FAX release showed The Sun's recent circulation declines slowing, new research shows the paper's readership actually growing. The March ABC Publisher's Statement shows Sun overall daily (Monday - Friday average) circulation down about 3% and Sunday down about 6.6%, largely reflecting the newspaper's continued reduction of bulk or third-party sponsored distribution. (A mistake in ABC's original release this morning erroneously reported...

    <p>Much has been made in the media about the sweep of California statewide offices by Democrats, the first time that had happened in 120-odd years.</p> <p>It's certainly noteworthy, at least as a historic milestone, and it does underscore the decline of the Republicans in a state whose major statewide elections they once dominated. It stands in contrast, too, to the wins by White House-led Republicans in congressional, senatorial and statehouse contests in the rest of the nation.</p>
