Several Key Indiana Counties Still Have Yet to Report

A reader sees some additional truth to the rumor posted below of the all-out, pro-Obama, anti-Hillary push starting as early as tonight: North Carolina was called immediately for Obama (suggesting he won big, in the 15 percent range, maybe?) while Indiana is still not called, with 37 percent of precincts reporting, a 50,000+ vote margin, and a 56-44 lead.

But I note that only a third of precincts in Marion County (Indianapolis) have reported, and none of the northwestern, near-Chicago counties have reported yet.
UPDATE: CBS calls it for Hillary. Fox News is still calling it a “slight” lead for Hillary.

First: Irving asserts that abortion was legal in our country from Puritan times until the 1840s, at least before “quickening.” That’s an overstatement. ... Read More

Murder Mystery: An Old Comedy Genre Gets Polished Up

I  like Adam Sandler, and yet you may share the sense of trepidation I get when I see that another of his movies is out. He made some very funny manboy comedies (Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Waterboy) followed by some not-so-funny manboy comedies, and when he went dark, in Reign over Me and Funny People, ...
