The problem with the current members of Congress isn't that they're partisan -- it's a political institution, after all -- but that collectively they're dysfunctional. They've been flirting with self-inflicted disasters for two years, seemingly unable to solve obvious and surmountable problems until the damage has already been done . That's because too many lawmakers seem trapped in ideological silos, unable to acknowledge that folks on the other side might actually have the same goals, and incapable of finding mutually acceptable ways to reach them.  The breakdown in the nation's capital reflects the sort of intellectual burrowing-in that's frequently on display in the comments section of this blog.

Kid Rock has won an initial victory in his attempt to stop the release of an explicit sex video featuring the rap-rocker, former Creed singer Scott Stapp and four women.

"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful," wrote 19th-Century tastemaker William Morris. This good advice was easier to follow when labor was cheap. Today's homeowner--eager to restore an old house, add distinction to a bland one or create a neoclassic--soon learns that period architectural details are hard to find and cost a small fortune to duplicate.

A 2006 Bugatti Veyron - the first sold in the U.S. - fetched $924,000. A 1990 Ferrari F40 garnered $715,000.

Nobody transforms arrogance into pop fun quite like Kid Rock. At his circus-like show on Saturday at the Universal Amphitheatre, the Detroit rap-rocker tackled the riffs and melodies of everyone from Led Zeppelin to the Supremes to Eminem and took it upon himself to play solos on each of his band member's instruments.
