When the royal baby, Prince George of Cambridge, was baptized on Oct. 23 in the Chapel Royal of St. James' Palace in the heart of London, few thought back to the baptism of another Prince George of Cambridge, his first cousin seven times removed, nearly two centuries ago. Yet as this new book by West Point history professor Kevin W. Farrell makes clear, that far-off figure was not only a fascinating character, but also played an important role as commander in chief of the British army for nearly 40 years, from 1856 to 1895.

A statement that Americans have been saying for decades is now obsolete: "All I have to do is pay taxes and die." We cannot say that anymore, because we now have a new item on our to-do list: Purchase Obamacare whether we like it or not. The penalty has been attached to our annual tax filings so as not to lose track of anyone. No wonder the administration of Obamacare went to the IRS; we have to pay a penalty tax if we do not buy this worthless product being forced upon us.

Americans are beginning to recognize the disturbing similarities between President Obama and the fallen Richard Nixon, but the comparison that may matter more is between Mr. Obama and King George III.
This offbeat tale of presidential romance is a high-toned dud — a surprise, given its talented cast, scandalous subject matter and trim 94-minute running time.
The family of former Sen. George McGovern says the 90-year-old is "no longer responsive" in hospice care.

Golf has become the guiding light for the Wallace family, helping them repair their lives and get through very difficult times.
"We feel like what we did gives the whale a fighting chance to shed the remainder of the rope on its own," said George, who estimated the whale is still dragging about 20 feet of the rope woven with lead weights. "The real take-home message here is we can't just go out and save and fix every whale that shows up entangled. In some cases it's just completely impossible to disentangle that whale."
