  • Some people believe that Boys’ State and Girls’ State helps shape the future of the nation in training young men and women to take their place in running and preserving the nation’s form of government.
    Since 1948, thousands of New Mexico’s young men and women have stepped up to the plate and trained themselves to lead in public life. Boys’ State and Girls’ State graduates are found in all walks of life.  Former Governors Garrey Caruthers and Toney Anaya, as well as Lt. Gov. Diane Denish, are among them. Some graduates go on to become legislators, mayors, city counselors, physicians, businessmen and women, and work in the ranks of corporate officers.

  •  Angelina Jolie said Monday she hopes her directorial debut “In the Land of Blood and Honey” will provoke a wider discussion about rape — something that the International Criminal Court’s prosecutor said could be extremely valuable in helping bring perpetrators to justice.
    Jolie, who received a Cinema for Peace award for her film and the group’s “honorary award for opposing war and genocide” for the movie focusing on the war in Bosnia late Monday, said she wants viewers to be “uncomfortable” when they see the film.

  • The splintered music world truly coalesces only one night of 365 for the Grammy Awards, and this year was united in the triumph of recovered British soul singer Adele’s trophy haul and the tragedy of Whitney Houston’s death.
    Adele swept the major honors of song, record and album of the year Sunday for her lost-love epic “21” and its driving single “Rolling in the Deep.” She picked up her final two awards after making her first public performance in months after being sidelined for throat surgery. Her total of six Grammys matched Beyonce for most ever by a female act.
