• Marine veterans sentenced for brutally beating man who had an affair with one of their wives

    Norman Early III pulled up to the Southern California house one night in September 2015 and sent a Snapchat message to the woman he went there to see, saying he was parked a short distance away. The two, who had known each other for several years, had crossed the line between friendship and flirtation while her husband was serving overseas. The woman responded, “Come in the door is unlocked.” The account from court documents reads like the start of slasher movie. Minutes after midnight on Sept. 20, 2015, Early walked into the modest corner house with a white iron fence and concrete pillars. It was her husband, however, who was using her cellphone to talk to him. Almost simultaneously, Early later

  • Dear Abby: Wife bans contact with his longtime co-worker

    DEAR ABBY: I recently retired after 26 years of working with a professional partner of the opposite sex. Now my wife expects me to cut off all communication with her. There was never any intimacy or sexual attraction at all, just a friendship established over many years. I have explained this to my wife many times, but she refuses to believe me and wants this person out of my life for good. How can I explain this to someone I have worked with for so many years? Is my wife’s request reasonable? Can’t married males have female friends, or am I restricted to only male friends for the rest of my life? - FENCED IN, IN WASHINGTON DEAR FENCED IN: No, I do not think it is reasonable, and the implication

  • The $30,000-A-Night Jet that Flies Empty

    Every night in the US, an Airbus A300 aircraft takes off from Denver, Colorado bound for Memphis, Tennessee. “Flight 1311 departs every night of the year, though the number varies by the month,” says Marcus Martinez, managing director of the company’s global operations control at FedEx’s sprawling 880-acre airfield at Memphis International Airport. While more attention is normally given to FedEx’s “last mile” network of 48,500 motorized vehicles, its air operation moves four million packages and 11 million pounds of air freight every day. “We’re moving more than 1.4m packages every night just through our SuperHub in Memphis,” says Raj Subramaniam, FedEx’s executive vice-president for global strategy, marketing and communications.

  • What the Hell Is Going on in Colorado?

    Out in Colorado, incumbent Democratic Senator Michael Bennet was supposed to be one of the more endangered Democratic incumbents this year. However, according to the latest Quinnipiac poll, the man is cruising by 16 points. There is a reason for this. That reason is named Darryl Glenn, and he's the latest indicator of how The Base that the Republicans have cultivated so tenderly over the past 40 years can guarantee equally a primary upset win and a general election blowout loss, especially in presidential election years. Now, though, to the list contained Sharron Angle and Christive O'Donnell, we can add the name of Darryl Glenn. In June, to the enormous credit of himself and his staff, Glenn,

  • My Father Is a Sex Addict

    My earliest childhood memory is scaling the bookshelves of my father’s home office and accidentally discovering his shocking stash of hardcore porn magazines. It marked my first encounter with my father’s sexuality, but it would prove far from the last. Now, 30 years later, he (a once successful ...

With news that the Lions are planning to push the pace in 2016, Staff could throw the ball upwards of 640 times in 2016.

  • A letter to my breadwinner husband

    My dearest Bill, The other day, around 3:00pm on a random Wednesday, I was headed to the grocery store to get something to make for dinner. As you know, I’ve been slacking on the food front for some time and can’t seem to get organized the way I used to. Remember when I would go through our cookbooks every Sunday and plan the meals for the week, and then shop once for the entire week? I know, I know, I always made a second trip; but still, the bulk of the food was in the fridge. I did that for more than a decade, but it was such a monotonous task I can’t bring myself to keep up with it. So now I play ‘catch as catch can’ and, as you like to say, shop like a French woman who goes to the store
