The Arizona Humane Society recently opened a new cat isolation area at its Phoenix location to help sick cats recover. The isolation area has 34 kennels and a separate ventilation system that will allow AHS to care for 600 more cats each year.
To this generation, Elaine Stritch is probably best known for playing Alec Baldwin’s overbearing mother on “30 Rock.” Before she was Colleen Donaghy, however, Stritch already had quite the résumé. In a showbiz career that’s now spanned roughly seven decades, she’s done it all, from movies, to television, to radio, to cabaret. Stritch cemented herself as a performing legend on the Broadway stage, starring in countless plays and finally winning a Tony for her one-woman show back in 2002.
A few weeks ago we got “The Lego Movie,” an animated feature that looked like a disaster waiting to happen. Since its release, however, the film has become a box office hit and received praise from virtually every human being on the planet, myself included. “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” is another family movie that seemed destined to flop at first glance. A modern day 3D extravaganza based on a 1960’s cartoon that was never even so great to begin with? I smell another “Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.”
NEW YORK — Every so often a revolution transforms something truly basic, rendering the status quo somewhat, well, primitive.
The state House voted Thursday to put a five-year lifetime cap on government-funded health – but not for everyone.

Few shifts in American customs and politics will ever equal the one launched a brief eight years ago by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT) community. Considering the alternative lifestyle population makes up less than 4 percent of our nation (Williams Institute), their success is even more remarkable.
BROOKLINE, Mass. — The spirited sport known as parkour that treats the world as one big obstacle course is gaining traction outside of the urban enthusiasts whose YouTube-worthy acrobatics spread its popularity.

“How many times has the vocal religious minority been on the wrong side of history and had to be dragged kicking and screaming into line with the rest of humanity?”
Ben Affleck backstage at the 85th annual Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles, California, Sunday, February 24, 2013.
The fanciest event of the year for the denizens of Hollywood is nigh, and what better way to celebrate the bright lights, glamour, fame and misfortune of the Oscars than to throw a world-class shindig?
This Sunday the 86th Annual Academy Awards Ceremony will grace our TV’s. During the Ceremony, Arizona can be expected to be raked over the coals once again. Of course it is no longer the G-rated Program it once was. Now they have to use “L” for Language and “N” for Nudity alerts and probably “M” for Mature would be more fitting. We will of course be subjected to some male/female body part(s) being bared due to an “accidental” clothing malfunction. We will of course be subjected to f-bombs, c-bombs, s-bombs and other assorted profanity from the host/hostess, the presenters, and the awardees. Crocodile tears, mock surprise and humility will rule the day. The “best” movie will be awarded to one of the usual liberal Hollywood. Heaven forbid that any movie positively portraying a normal American family or having a pro-American theme would ever win an Oscar these days.
When I was studying to be a rabbi, I spent several years doing volunteer service work in India, Thailand, El Salvador, Ghana, and many other countries. During that time, I heard many wrenching stories from women who had been the victims of violence. They told me they felt powerless, vulnerable, and scared.
For years Cathi Herrod and her Center for Arizona Policy have flexed their political muscles and pushed through legislation that represented what she calls “fundamental principles,” often those espoused in the Bible.
Despite the gubernatorial veto of legislation billed as promoting religious freedom, the Center for Arizona Policy has a long history of getting lawmakers and governors – at least Republican governors – to do what it wants.
Garden centers, with their vast collections of plant colors, sizes and shapes, can be intimidating to inexperienced buyers. But you can become a discerning purchaser with a little homework and by quizzing the sales people as you shop.
Forest Whitaker isn't much bothered by being one of the season's biggest Oscar snubs.
