A Word from Will McAvoy

Let me first start by saying that everything I said several months ago in my coverage of the tea party, despite fervent disagreement, resentment and even the death threats, will not be recanted in any way and I will continue to stand by every word I spoke.There is no doubt in my mind that some of you out there are likely to have taken offense to what I have said, and I’m sure you would be more than happy to explain to me, in no uncertain terms,  why I am absolutely and completely off base about what the tea party stands for and what the tea party does.I have said it before and I will proudly say again tonight. I am a republican. I am...

True Blood Season 6 Review: Episode 2- The Sun

“It’s time for the humans to bite back.”“The Sun” picks up right where the premiere left off, with almost every character involved in some kind of chaos. Jason has been road-tripping with some creepy old man, who claims to be the very vampire that murdered his family decades before.

Why she would ever want to go back to that is beyond me.)  Tara has just been shot trying to defend Pam’s honor and Sam has no idea what to do next (or how to take care of Emma). ...
