Horror, Lost Among the Chaos

Unless you're a true news junkie, you probably missed the outrageous story of the illegal alien who tried to sexually molest an infant.

The World’s Oldest Hatred

Screenwriter Ben Hecht was known as "The Shakespeare of Hollywood." His remarkable portfolio included "The Front Page," "Notorious," "Mutiny on the Bounty," and dozens of other classics.

The Aging Radicals Among Us

You probably saw Megyn Kelly's riveting interview – actually, "harsh interrogation" is more like it – with 60's radical Bill Ayers. The despicable terrorist was nimble and slippery, but Megyn blasted him with dates and facts the way his Weather Underground once set off bombs. Of course, the 69-year-old Ayers was as unapologetic and unrepentant…
