An analysis of mortality records uncovered the most distinctive cause of death in each state. In Texas, it's tuberculosis. In Maine, the flu. And in Nevada, it's "legal intervention."

As the GOP has quickly settled into a new consensus that the decision to invade Iraq was - at least in retrospect - a mistake, it has come with a willful amnesia bordering on a whole new generation of deceit about exactly what happened in the lead up to the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. To hear Republican presidential candidates tell it, Americans believed Saddam Hussein had a stockpile of Weapons of Mass Destruction which justified and necessi...

There is a lavishly funded ecosystem of billionaire-financed think tanks and media outlets that provides a comfortable cushion for politicians and pundits who tell such people what they want to hear.

People are contrasting media and police reaction to the Texas shootout with their reaction to the recent protests in Baltimore and Ferguson, Mo.

Instead of addressing real concerns about the TPP, the Obama administration has been dismissive, trying to portray skeptics as uninformed hacks who don't understand the virtues of trade

The New Zealand star has become the latest in a long line of musicians to separate from the manager who made them famous. Will she live to regret it, as so many before her have?

Republican presidential contenders are the 21st century version of the carnival barkers and tent revivalists.

What started as a subtle buzz in the backwoods of the Internet has blossomed into a surreal national controversy, with scathing accusations hurled between comments from big-name celebrities, national lawmakers, the governor of Texas and the White House.

Awesome vegetarian food! I got the regular fresh-cut french fries with salt and pepper, and their homemade Jamaican veggie burger. Great atmosphere, super friendly service, great experience. Really comfortable lunch spot.

Their customer service is superior. I've had to request administrative help a few times and each time the manager has responded very quickly, been very helpful, and never made me feel like I was putting him out. Plus, they are very much online; they respond to e-mail, and do online class bookings and payment. Their facilities are clean and attractive. I only go there in the morning, so I don't know what it's like by the time herds of people are done with the place by mid-afternoon, but the place is tastefully decorated and serene. In the Reformer room, there's a waterfall, ceiling fans, peaceful lighting, climate control. The machines seem well maintained. My instructors have been extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful, and there are several to choose from. P.S. I've only taken the Reformer classes.

They came to fix our toilet around February 2012 and were extremely professional, polite, and knowledgeable. They realized someone had installed mismatched parts in our toilet tank and fixed the problem very quickly.

They came out next day, were punctual, professional, and helpful. Plus, they have the same rates on weekends! It was nice that they e-mailed us prior to their arrival.
