A short list for a short week.

The US Postal Service treats its employees right.

The picture-is-worth-a-thousand-words case for extending unemployment insurance.

Being a “deficit hawk” means opposing anything and everything that would actually shrink the deficit.

Besides, tax cuts are always the answer.

Remember the sandwich in a can? The story just keeps getting better.

Songs for Lois, the corpse flower.

“From 2002 to 2009, the crime rate in Maricopa County has increased 58 percent, while the state as a whole averaged a 12 percent decrease.

In that same time period, Phoenix enjoyed a 14 percent decrease; Tempe, a 26 percent decrease; and Mesa, a 31 percent decrease.” Heck of a job, Sheriff Arpaio!
