There was once a time when the media understood it had a job to do: Question everything, take nothing for granted and do whatever it takes to ferret out the truth. Sadly, that time has passed.

Wine is created from an age-old fermentation process known for thousands of years. It is spoken of in the Bible. Most of the time the alcohol content of wine is 4 percent to 6 percent. I am a teetotaler except for red wine. I like the taste, and since I have read studies on resveratrol, a molecule found in […]
In a hastily-called national television address, President Barack Obama announced that the most wanted man in the world, Osama bin Laden, had been brought to justice. He had been shot in the head by Navy Seal Team Six in a raid on a compound just north of Islamabad, Pakistan, Obama said.
All day long April 27, meteorologists warned that conditions were rife for a severe weather outbreak in the South, and Alabama was expected to be ground zero. The sky was warm and moist, the sun was shining, dew points were abnormally high and Southeasterly winds coming off the Gulf of Mexico were stewing the air.
