Should Stores be Allowed to Sell Liquor on Sundays?

Texas legislators have a bill to consider this session-one that would allow liquor sales on Sunday. When I moved here many years ago, I was surprised when I went to buy beer one Sunday and couldn't, mainly because it was allowed every other place I've lived. I was also surprised that you can only buy it up to a certain hour in Texas. In fact, the only other restriction on booze that I've encountered was in North Carolina, where you had to be a member of a private club to buy mixed drinks, unless food made up a major percentage of your business, namely restaurants.

New Poll Shows Americans Hate Congress Even More than Nickelback

It's no surprise that Congress' approval numbers have dropped significantly since the fiscal cliff debacle. But what's surprising is exactly how unpopular the legislative body has become.

HBO’ Developing ‘Game Change’ Sequel ‘Double Down’: Barack Obama Vs. Mitt Romney

The moment Alaska governor Sarah Palin first came to the world stage as John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential elections, we knew that her larger-than-life personality would become the stuff of parody and portrayal from years to come. Once we finished laughing at Tina Fey's dead-on impression, the tone turned serious as HBO's 'Game Change' garnered multiple Emmys with Julianne Moore in the lead role.

Now, the original 'Game Change' writers have begun work on a sequel covering the 2012 elections between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, titled 'Double Down: Game Change 2012,' and guess what HBO wants to do with it?
