    “Hamilton,” an improbable hip-hop musical about America’s first Treasury secretary, completed its rapturous march across America’s awards landscape on Sunday, picking up Broadway’s highest honor: the Tony Award for best new musical. The prize capped an amazing season for the show, a smash hit that has been sold out from the start, captivating audiences and the broader culture through its use of today’s sounds and a largely nonwhite cast to explore America’s revolutionary origins and their contemporary relevance.

    **SNIP** “I deal through the Clinton Foundation. That gets me in touch with the Haitian officials,” Mr. Rodham said, according to a transcript of his testimony. “I hound my brother-in-law, because it’s his fund that we’re going to get our money from. And he can’t do it until the Haitian government does it. “And he keeps telling me, ‘Oh, it’s going to happen tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow.’ Well, tomorrow hasn’t come yet.” Mr. Rodham’s Haiti project never did happen. The Clinton Foundation said in a statement that it was not aware of Mr. Rodham’s Haiti project and had no involvement...
  • Povero: No politics involved in pace of Stewart investigation

    With an unprecedented amount of attention focused on the Tony Stewart investigation, many are eager to know the outcome amid calls by some that politics might play a part in the report's release. As the probe into the Aug. 9 crash at Canandaigua Motorsports Park drags into its fourth week, the Ontario County District Attorney’s Office is refusing calls and Ontario County Sheriff Phil Povero said reporter inquiries are coming from as far away as Japan... Some are already drawing conclusions — about whether Stewart will face charges and whether the political race between Povero and his challenger, ex-road patrol...

  • Kill Whales, but not Wolves

    I am all for whaling, but against killing the wolves. In Norway we have a very small population of wolves. More sheeps die from falling down cliffs and other natural things than being killed by wolves. Actually more sheeps are killed by another wild animal. Whales on the other hand there are many of in the sea.

    Like a beautiful butterfly emerging from his cocoon, a remarkable political metamorphosis is taking place right before our eyes. You won't see this on the Nature Channel; instead you have to watch the savants on CNN and MSNBC to witness Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa transform from a "Failure," as Los Angeles Magazine called him in 2009, into a statesman. From their offices high above New York's Sixth Avenue the editors of Time Magazine have also discovered mayoral virtues invisible from Ventura Boulevard. Adam Nagourney of The New York Times gave "Tony the Butterfly" two thumbs up, claiming, "His record is substantial...

    Antoin "Tony" Rezko leaves federal court in Chicago in this Oct. 19, 2006, file photo. Mr. Rezko spent years pouring thousands of dollars in campaign contributions into Barack Obama's climb from the Illinois legislature to Capitol Hill, and helped him raise tens of thousands more. A former Illinois bank official, now claiming whistleblower status, says bank officials replaced a loan reappraisal that he prepared for a Chicago property that was purchased by the wife of now-convicted felon Tony Rezko, part of which was later sold to next-door neighbor Barack Obama.

    Now we must turn down an empty glass for Tony Snow. The expression comes from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, as translated from the Persian by the English eccentric Edward FitzGerald. The FitzGerald translation also gave us “The moving finger writes and having writ, moves on . . .” and many other quotable lines. Anyway, at one time, journalists, particularly those who worked for newspapers, liked to treat “The Rubaiyat” as a kind of drinking song without music. It was very popular in saloons frequented by journalists, who insisted on being called newspapermen or women. It wasn't really until the...
