Headline of the year...
Empires bomb who they want, when they want, for whatever reason. It seems irrelevant on whom the U.S. wages war; what matters it that it be at war, always and forever.

Ridiculous. How about you support basic html in your e-mail first, Yahoo.
After June 5, users running old browsers will have to use a version of Yahoo Mail that doesn't have spell-check or chat.

"Article 5 is crystal clear. An attack on one is an attack on all. So if, in such a moment, you ever ask again, who'll come to help, you'll know the answer: the NATO alliance, including the armed forces of the United States of America, right here, present, now."
No U.S. president since Reagan has used such forceful language against Russia.

Expect a HARD sell on contacts--increasing the likelihood that you'll come back and spend money in about a year. Don't get me wrong, the year's supply of contacts is a decent deal, but they push it too hard. If you talk about glasses, they sell you on the discount on glasses that you get ONLY if you buy a year of contacts and ONLY within 30 days of buying contacts. Although I liked Dr. Miller, I dropped more than a few hints that contacts just weren't working for me any longer. Especially if I said that my eyes are dry and uncomfortable a lot, even when only wearing them days and only 6 times per week--I feel that any other optometrist would have steered me to glasses, or at least a tapering off. I have my year's supply of contacts but I still need glasses. I don't want to spend another $200-$300 within a month of spending $500, so I'm not going to get the glasses discount, but I might buy frames online and go back to them for the lenses (don't expect to take the prescription with you). Then I likely will find someplace else next year.
