Devil Dish
When former Miami Heat guard Tim Hardaway made discriminatory remarks about gay people, fresh on the heels of former NBA player John Amaechi's public coming-out, I found myself utterly livid.

Opinions: Congress powerless against presidents' wars

PATE: So, on Saturday, the Senate failed to bring to vote a resolution that would condemn Bush's deployment of 21,500 additional troops to Iraq. Condemn is perhaps a strong word for a resolution that simply states, "Congress disapproves of the decision of President George W. Bush ..."

Spy film shows boring side of agent's life
Robert Hansen is the worst spy in history, in terms of damage done to the United States. This sentence makes Robert Hansen seem like a guy who has an interesting story to tell. And he might, too; unfortunately, "Breach" is the movie they made about his actions instead.

Brite's Bites: Chocolate and booze bonanza
Forget about boxed samplers and chocolate-covered strawberries for your post-Valentine's Day weekend.

Hot Spot: Where Jesus loves rock 'n' roll
Downtown Phoenix's Roosevelt Row has become a hip nightlife-and-arts district in recent years, so it's no surprise that there has been a lack of religion present.
