December 8, 1985 | Amy Hempel, Hempel's collection of stories, "Reasons to Live," was published this year by Knopf
Think of a short story as a connect-the-dots picture. If you can "get the picture" without having to connect every last dot, you are the target reader for "Rumor and Other Stories," a first collection by James Robison. These carefully crafted stories are trimmed of anything extraneous; the author gives you credit for knowing that which is left unsaid. In these 13 stories, six of which first appeared in The New Yorker, Robison leaves out all the right things.

Claire McCaskill,  Huckabee used his syndicated radio program Monday to give the embattled candidate a safe venue to express remorse and his determination to remain in the race.

October 20, 1989 | From Associated Press
A state grand jury has begun a new investigation into the 1976 car-bomb slaying of investigative reporter Don Bolles, sources said Thursday. The grand jury has already issued subpoenas for several witnesses, including people in California or Colorado, said sources familiar with the investigation who spoke on condition of anonymity. Although the man who planted the remote-control bomb that killed the Arizona Republic reporter was found guilty and imprisoned, no mastermind has ever been convicted.
