    Conspiciously absent from September 11th memorial service, the Obama campaign claimed Michelle Obama was home with her children for the 1st week of school. However, on Sep. 10th, she spent most of the day at a "Working Mothers" roundtable in Fishers, Indiana (a 3.5 hour drive from Chicago). FISHERS, Ind. — More evidence Indiana is in play this presidential election year: the Obama campaign focused on the state again Wednesday. This time it was Michelle Obama, right in the heart of Republican territory.

    Two new research papers, using very different methods, have both come to this conclusion. Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers, economists at the University of Pennsylvania (and a couple), have looked at the traditional happiness data, in which people are simply asked how satisfied they are with their overall lives. In the early 1970s, women reported being slightly happier than men. Today, the two have switched places. Mr. Krueger, analyzing time-use studies over the last four decades, has found an even starker pattern. Since the 1960s, men have gradually cut back on activities they find unpleasant. They now work less and...
  • (West Virginia) Comment About Mrs. Bush Innappropriate, Not True

    "I don't know that she's ever had a real job," Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Sen. John Kerry, said of Laura Bush this week. That says something about both Mrs. Kerry and those involved in her husband's campaign for president. What it says ought to anger those who toil day in, day out working to educate American children. Mrs. Bush, as most people know, worked for several years as a school teacher, then as a librarian before meeting and marrying her husband, George W. Bush, who went on to become president. Mrs. Kerry is, of course, known for refusing to...

    Penn State's women's studies program brought together faculty, alumni and current students to celebrate their 25th anniversary in a two-day event, which ended yesterday at the Nittany Lion Inn. Its purpose was to honor what the program has done throughout the years, said Carolyn Sachs, director of women's studies. "It was more exciting than I expected it to be," Sachs said. The celebration began on Sunday with dinner and opening remarks by faculty and staff of the program, followed by an alumni panel discussion. Most of the alumni came to the event because they wanted to network and help out...
