  • Iran talks fail, no new date set

  • Keith Olbermann leaving MSNBC, ends 'Countdown'

    NEW YORK (AP) — MSNBC host Keith Olbermann announced Friday that he is leaving the network and has taped his last "Countdown" show.

    MSNBC issued a statement that it had ended its contract with the controversial host, with no further explanation. Olbermann hosted the network's most popular show, but his combative liberal opinions often made him a target of critics.

    Olbermann did not explain why he was leaving.

  • Football: The picks just keep on rollin’

    Seriously, I don’t even know why I’m bothering.
    Picking these games ain’t done me a lick of good so far. Here’s a recap of last week’s picks: the Patriots went AWOL and the Falcons got defeathered.
    I went 2-for-4 picking the divisional round playoff games last week. Frankly, picking Pittsburgh over Baltimore was a coin-flip and picking Chicago over Seattle was like picking Larry Holmes over Gerry Cooney, only the most blind-faithed among us would’ve thought the Seattle Cooneys stood a chance.

  • Small business needs relief

    Before it vanishes into the vapor, mourned by almost no one, let me tell you about the Small Business Regulatory Relief Act.
    Promising title, wasn’t it?
    It could evaporate this year. It’s named in a long list of things to be repealed in HB 29, the 89-page bill that creates the proposed new Department of Commerce.
    The Small Business Regulatory Relief Act was enacted in 2005 (HB 869; you can read it on the New Mexico Legislature’s Web site).

    “The Bible speaks of the devil and accords him some power. But, does he know what I am thinking?" — Dana

    We get a sense of the devil’s nature by perusing some of the names used of him in Scripture: Tempter (Mt. 4:1ff), Adversary (I Pet. 5:8), Destroyer (Rev. 9:11), Accuser (Rev. 12:10), Murderer (Jn. 8:44), Prince of This World (Jn. 14:30) and Ruler of Darkness (Eph. 6:12).
