Travis: A trip to Lego Atlanta

I hate to admit this, but even at my age, I love Legos. I bought Duplos for my children when they were little and enjoyed playing with them. As my children grew, we transitioned into Legos. When my grandchildren came along, I bought more Duplos, and we spent many happy hours with them. I would build a tower, and the granddaughter would knock it down. Then we'd do it all over again and again and again. As they grew older, I bought more complicated Lego sets.

The Lego sets that were available for my children were not as fancy ...

Hurricane Sandy

In the midst of everything else Congress had to worry about this week, the senate tried its best to jam a $60.4 million relief package for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, which devastated the coast of the Northeast, down the throats of American taxpayers.

McCoy: Goodbye Mr. Butternut and 2012

Many of your respected newspaper columnists are offering New Year's resolutions, but notice I said, "respected." That's your first clue that I'm not going in for the tradition resolutions game.

This is a lighter approach to resolutions where I'll make a lot of noise but not actually do anything to solve the real problem. I learned this trick ...
