I would like to begin by informing you I voted for Sen. John McCain in 2008, but we've had these discussions about honesty before.

KANSAS CITY (Adam Teicher, Kansas City Star) - Luke Joeckel, T, Texas A&M: "With all the uncertainty over Branden Albert, the Chiefs need to do something to secure that position for the long term.

In the weeks before he was executed for strangling a man to death, Arizona inmate Robert Towery kept a diary. His writings began Feb. 2, when he was transferred to a “death watch” cell in state prison, and ended Thursday, shortly before he was put to death by lethal injection at 11:26 a.m. The Associated Press described the execution -- and the events leading up to it. Towery, 47, had been convicted of killing Mark Jones during a...
