  • CAIRO - The leadership of Egypt's ruling party stepped down Saturday as the military figures spearheading the transition tried to placate protesters without giving them the one resignation they demand, President Hosni Mubarak's.

  • Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid's characterization of then-candidate Barack Obama's chances to win the presidency because he is a "light-skinned" African-American "with no Negro dialect"-well, was right. All Reid left out waste fact that Obama was "male," because let's face it, that helped too-that and the fact that he spoke English better than any other Black man who has ever run for President and didn't sport a perm or an Afro.
