  • More accurate view of Washington's crossing emerges

    NEW YORK (AP) — One of America’s most famous images, a painting of George Washington crossing the Delaware River, got much of the story wrong: The American commander wouldn’t have stood triumphantly on a rowboat in daylight, but on a ferry bracing himself against a fierce snowstorm on Christmas night.

  • Lady Gaga named AP entertainer of the year

     NEW YORK (AP) — You might say that Lady Gaga’s year really began in an egg.

    That’s how she arrived at the Grammys in February, encased in a large, translucent pod carried by scantily clad dancers.

In 2011, the album would carry her around the world, where she rarely went unnoticed.

  • Advocates: More gay-friendly senior housing needed

    EDITOR'S NOTE _ The latest in the ongoing AP-APME joint project looking at the aging of the baby boomers and the impact this so-called silver tsunami will have on the communities in which they live.

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — At age 62, Donald Carter knows his arthritis and other age-related infirmities will not allow him to live indefinitely in his third-floor walk-up apartment in Philadelphia.

    But as a low-income renter, Carter has limited options. And as a gay black man, he's concerned his choice of senior living facilities might be narrowed further by the possibility of intolerant residents or staff members.
