Walter Cronkite, the great CBS anchorman from 1962 to 1981, was called "the most trusted man in America" - and polling supported that claim. He'd conclude his CBS Evening News broadcasts with the phrase: "And that's the way it is." And it was, too - or, more precisely, Uncle Walter defined for most Americans what was news - what was important and why.
The Ukrainian government of Viktor Yanukovich is at a crossroads, and the European Union, with U.S. help, must make it easy for him to make the right decision.
You see her image all over Mexico from taxi rearview mirrors to T-shirts and tattoos. She is Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patron of Latin America, celebrated every year on her feast day, December 12. I know her well for this is my birthday, too, and all my life her image has been a part of my spiritual world. As a horticulturist, I am keen on the role of plants in this miracle, and that's why there will always be a small corner of my garden dedicated to her.
12-06-13 - The international agreement to restrain Iran's nuclear program has generated anxiety in Israel and elsewhere. Middle East uncertainty underscores the growing importance of Turkey, a democracy with strong ties to both Iran and the West.
Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby recently became the sixth-fastest NHL player - and fastest active player - to reach 700 points. That would seem to make this an opportune time to catch up with the man considered to be the face of the league. Crosby, 26, recently sat down to discuss a wide range of topics.
To be fair, the document signed in Geneva is not meant to neutralize the threat posed by those who rule Iran. It is meant only to be a "confidence-building" measure, a first step toward the "comprehensive solution" that President Obama envisions.
Dear Helaine and Joe: I own what might be a vintage or early piece of Mottahedeh "Tobacco Leaf" pattern. It is a 10-inch-tall candlestick with a fluted top. The candlestick's column is flanked by two monkeys - one large one on the left and a smaller one on the right. The pattern is almost identical to the current "Tobacco Leaf" pattern made by Mottahedeh with one exception - the bird is standing on a pink leaf rather than a green one. The only markings on the bottom are three digit numbers. Any information about its origins and worth would be appreciated. Thanks so much, G. D.
In their wilder fantasies, Ukrainian democrats surely fantasize about moving their county to a location with better weather, better scenery and most of all without Russia as an immediate neighbor.
There's no need to check the brakes on the Black Cadillacs. They don't need them. The act never seems to slow down, and it's paying off. The band's fan base continues to increase as the act travels the country. They've won fans from New York City to Texas, New Orleans to Nashville, and plan to travel to Europe in 2014. Venues that once were sparsely filled for the group now sell out.
Over the past decade, the migration of retirees to places overseas has contributed to rising housing markets in several retiree-friendly hot spots around the world. As a result, homes in several developing nations have reached prices comparable to those in the U.S. With the cost of homes climbing, some retirees are choosing to rent abroad rather than buy.
The progressives' single-payer solution to Obamacare won't work any better than the president's delay of policy cancelations, but there are some ideas that should be pursued.
