    Some of my Facebook friends hit a new low over the weekend when they got into a heated debate over Ivanka Trump's perfume. It began when an obvious Donald Trump supporter posted this snarky bait: "THANK YOU, HATERS: Ivanka Gets The Last Laugh, As Her Fragrance Hits #1 On Amazon!" Apparently, Trump fans are claiming victory for taking Ivanka's 3.4-oz eau de par fume to the top spot on the online retailer's list of best-selling beauty items. (Take that you liberal Nordstrom shoppers!) My friend went on to thank the "haters" for encouraging Trump supporters to "even new levels of...

    <p>Do rape “jokes” ever count as comedy? Apparently they do when Trump is involved. Liberal Hollywood writer and producer of films like Bridesmaids and Anchorman Judd Apatow actually compared living with Trump as President to getting raped, during a stand up comedy show in Los Angeles Saturday. Apatow, like many in Hollywood, seems to be unusually upset with the election calling him a “madman” and a “sociopath” in an previous unhinged rant.</p>

    The “Scenic Route” sign on Highway 12 announces the obvious to motorists heading into the Valley of the Moon. It’s cradled by mountains, dotted with giant oaks, horse ranches, vineyards, remnants of old orchards and the odd water tower. The road delivers inspiring views of imposing Hood Mountain, its craggy face standing sentinel over a historic route from Santa Rosa to Sonoma that carried stagecoaches and trains before the automobile took over. But today, the two-lane highway is crowded with traffic generated by commuters, residential and commercial development, sightseers and visitors headed to wineries and tasting rooms.

Many patrons wear high-visibility vests, it is often packed at lunchtime and the atmosphere is lively, with customers ordering beers at the bar. It serves its regular clientèle of local...

    The End Of Identity PoliticsWho are we? asked the liberal social scientist Samuel Huntington over a decade ago in a well-reasoned but controversial book. Huntington feared the institutionalization of what Theodore Roosevelt a century earlier had called “hyphenated Americans.” A “hyphenated American,” Roosevelt scoffed, “is not an American at all.” And 30 years ago, another progressive stalwart and American historian Arthur Schlesinger argued in his book The Disuniting of America that identity politics were tearing apart the cohesion of the United States. What alarmed these liberals was the long and unhappy history of racial, religious, and ethnic chauvinism, and...

Thinking burglars had destroyed the house and taken all the fixtures, they called Fort Worth, Texas, police to report the crime.

Worse still, owners Lee and Lelia Beckelman, of the Houston area, had a contract to sell the house at...

Because Trump holds Thor’s hammer, we must keep trying to figure out his aggrieved style of reasoning. So we’re stuck in Trump’s head with him.And the more Trump turns journalists into whipping boys and targets, the more he sounds like a dictator himself. “When Trump was a kid, he was obsessed with intimidating other boys,” D’Antonio says. “Prior to...

    An armed robber in north St. Louis County was blindsided by a not-so-passive bystander, who pulled out a gun of his own and opened fire, authorities say. Tre'von Johnson, 24, was in the midst of a stickup at 1:40 a.m this morning when the victim's neighbor intervened, according to St. Louis County Police.

    20. Gerry Mulligan Arguably the greatest baritone sax player in history — or at least the most influential — Mulligan's velvet tones eternally linked his instrument to the West Coast "cool jazz" sounds of the 1950s, especially through his work on Miles Davis' Birth of the Cool sessions and his legendary L.A. "pianoless quartet" with trumpeter Chet Baker. But to reduce Mulligan's impact to cool jazz does his 50-year career a disservice. Mulligan was equally adept swinging alongside one of his heroes, Ben Webster, and later in his career explored modernist variations of big-band jazz on albums such as Age...
