So the underboss, having fingered the boss, decides to go on the lam, but the boss tries to rat him out anyway. Meanwhile, the old underboss drops a dime on the boss by talking about how, before he was boss, he tried to squeeze the old boss into signing off on a squidgy deal, even though the old boss was laid up in the hospital at the time. This week's episode of "The Sopranos?" No. ... [full story]

Colombia's President Alvaro Uribe got a rude shock on his recent visit to Washington. The Democrats who now run Congress treated Uribe, the staunchest U.S. ally in Latin America, like a scofflaw on probation. That's a red flag warning that congressional support for Plan Colombia - the strategic U.S.-Colombian alliance to fight drug trafficking, terrorism and a communist guerrilla insurgency in Latin America's oldest democracy - may be flagging. We can scarcely imagine a less ... [full story]

There was a time when conservative Christians didn't publicly link their faith and their politics, and many avoided getting involved in politics at all. They left that to their more liberal brethren, such as the many Christians who were moved by their faith to take part in civil rights and anti-war movements. But that all changed in the 1980s, and one of the prime movers of that change was the Rev. Jerry Falwell, who died ... [full story]

President George W. Bush's executive order calling on federal agencies to act faster to regulate automotive fuel economy and increase alternative fuel supplies goes a long way toward making him seem green, but American workers will pay the price. Nonetheless, there he was in the White House Rose Garden on Monday, flanked by administrators from the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Departments of Transportation, Energy and Agriculture, telling them to have greenhouse gas emissions reduction ...

Redux Beverages LLC, creator of the high-energy drink, "Cocaine," certainly knows how to create buzz. Media from Los Angeles to London have run stories about the drink and the furor it has created among health and law enforcement officials. It has been pulled from shelves nationwide, and Monday the company said it will sell its product under a new name. At least for now. Last year, the wife of the Redux's founder told the Associated ...

There are legitimate reasons to feel sorry for embattled World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz. The furor over his role in securing a raise for Shaha Riza, a former World Bank official he is involved with, seems excessive. Yes, he showed dubious judgment. But the fact that he brought up his conflict of interest and discussed the matter with the bank's ethics committee before acting on the raise is often glossed over - even though it ... [full story]

The Big Three automakers say unattainable fuel economy standard proposals will cost consumers dearly and result in thousands of lost jobs, but for some reason few believe them. Now that Standard & Poor's is saying it, perhaps the news will carry more weight. In a report issued Monday, the credit rating agency says "that the proposed regulations pose a real risk to global automakers' financial performance, particularly as some are already under pressure from razor-thin ...

The election of conservative candidate Nicolas Sarkozy to the presidency, the defeat of Socialist Segolene Royal and the departure of Jacques Chirac means we can finally dust off the bon ami for France. Or that's the theory as many on this side of the Atlantic see a silver lining in how European leaders are lining up more pro-American than their predecessors. In addition to Sarkozy, there is Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel. The "old Europe," as ... [full story]
