    In '24: Live Another Day,' things are even darker for Jack Bauer
    After four years, Jack Bauer is back and more tortured than ever. That may be hard to believe, given that Bauer, the American counter-terrorism agent immortalized by Kiefer Sutherland for eight seasons on "24," was never exactly a model of sunshine...

    Supreme Court upholds Christian prayers at city council meetings

    Two of the most common misperceptions about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas are that he’s not a distinctive voice on the court and that he’s a jurisprudential clone of Justice Antonin Scalia. Monday’s decision on prayer at public...
  • Supreme Court ruling tilts law to the right on public prayer

     A Supreme Court divided along both ideological and religious lines cleared the way Monday for local officials to open public meetings with explicitly Christian prayers, ruling that the Constitution does not require government-sponsored religious...

    Supreme Court ruling: As if we don't have enough money in politics already
    Thank you, Supreme Court. Before your decision Wednesday in McCutcheon vs. FEC, Americans were confined to giving a measly total of $48,600 in campaign contributions to federal candidates (enough for about nine candidates) and a total of $74,600 to...

    York student chosen for U.S. Senate Youth Program
    York Community High School senior Mary-Margaret Koch has something in common with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and it has nothing to do with traffic or bridges. Both were chosen – Koch this year, Christie in 1980 -- by their home states to...

    Do you drive? Then you'll want to know about this Supreme Court ruling.
    Given the danger posed by drunk or reckless drivers, police should follow up on information — even information from an anonymous source — that a vehicle might be careening down a street or threatening other motorists and pedestrians. If they...
