Please read Nora Ephron’s op-ed on the Huffington Post. If you aren’t inclined to read any further, I thought Obama really, really blew it. If you are: There was a moment, when the debate ended and the wives came up on stage, where I actually knew, or thought I knew, who had won. I’m sorry […]

Self-explanatory. Here goes. 1. First 5 minutes–Normally this is the most boring part of the process, but this is certainly no ordinary debate.

American Pie star Jason Biggs is desperate to start a family…   What?! A Pie-Man family?!!
