Redistricting Edge Saved GOP From Deeper Midterm Losses

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Democrats won more votes, regained control of the U.S. House and flipped hundreds of seats in state legislatures during the 2018 elections. It was, by most accounts, a good year for the party. Yet it wasn’t as bad as it could have been for Republicans. That’s because they may have benefited from a built-in advantage in some states, based on how political districts were drawn, that prevented deeper losses or helped them hold on to power, according to a mathematical an...

Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young me...

Daddy’s Hangout 2019 NCAA Tournament Prediction

It’s that time of year again and that’s March Madness of course. Honestly, this is my favorite time of the year because anything can happen, and it usually does. Coming into the tournament, Duke is the overwhelming favorite and deservedly so. Zion Williamson is the phenom that everyone talked about and then some. In the ACC tournament, he became the first freshman since Kevin Durant to average 30 points and 10 boards in a conference tournament. There are quite a few other teams that have a gre...

It’s something that has been done throughout history — something that’s immediately clear as soon as you take a deeper look at where your favorite condiments come from.

Six Women Who Are Revolutionizing the World of Fly Fishing

To the casual observer, the world of fly fishing may look like a totally male-dominated endeavor.

In 1943, at the age of sixteen, she walked away with top honors in the national dry fly accuracy championship. From there she would go on to rack up twenty-one additional casting titles before ultimately win...

Walter Jones’ (R-NC) seat in an upcoming special election, led the pack with the first, truly zany campaign ad in which he skeet shoots various Democratic positions and proposals. “I’m Eric Rouse,” the ad opens to a heavy drumbeat as the candidate performs a casual lean on a tractor. “If I ran my business like they run Washington, I’d be broke or in jail,” he adds, speaking over video of him solemnly nodding at a construct...

Best US vintage trailer rentals

Before there was #vanlife, there was trailer life. In the 1950s and ‘60s, hitting the great highways and meandering backroads of the US with the family and a nicely outfitted trailer was the best way to see the country, and tons of great models emerged from that time period, including the now-iconic and coveted silver Airstreams. Nowadays, you’re more likely to see sleek modern RVs and boxy fold-out campers at campsites, but these charming relics of the USA’s great road-trip era are still flo...

Can prosecutors dismiss jurors for agreeing with the O.J. Simpson verdict?

It has long been settled that prosecutors may not dismiss citizens from a jury because they are black. But can they dismiss them because they supported the verdict in the O.J. Simpson case? That’s a question the U.S. Supreme Court may soon take up after the California Supreme Court treated a prosecutor’s invocation of a juror’s views on the O.J. Simpson verdict as a “race-neutral” reason that justified the dismissal of a black juror.  If the rule forbidding race discrimination in the selection o...
