The Islamic State doesn't appear ready to follow our lead, so don't expect it to release its report on the morality of severing American heads any time soon.
Though they call themselves a state, they're actually a mob of terrorists in Iraq and Syria. And...

PARIS -- Hey, did you see U.S. President Barack Obama yukking it up on "The Colbert Report" this week, reminding Americans how much fun he'd be to have a beer with to help forget all the challenges being fumbled by his administration? Sorry to be such a...

Dear Amy: I have two friends who happen to be cousins to each other — "Carmen" and "Angela." Angela has been dating her boyfriend, "Jose," for about three years. She talks about marriage.

In the workplace, however, pregnancy is often met with...

Dear Amy: I frequently read in your column about people snooping into their partner's email or texts and how that is a breach of privacy. I disagree.
No part of either my phone or computer is private from my husband.
He is too lazy to log out of my...

It doesn't take much for a steakhouse to make me happy; properly cooked prime and better-than-average wine will do the trick. But great steakhouses are rare. RPM Steak, which is all of 3 months old, is a great steakhouse.

Remember "The Ox-Bow Incident"?
It's positively ancient, and it's easy to see why it's been forgotten. For one thing, it's in black-and-white. And it offers no eye candy: no explosions or moaning flesh, or fast cars or epic battles.
But I've been...
