Rand Paul (R-Ky.) gave an interview to The New York Times to announce that he was “restructuring” his office — but not firing anyone — after plagiarism allegations that surfaced last week continued to mount on Monday. “What we are going to do from here forward, if it will make people leave me the hell alone, is we’re going to do them like college papers,” he said Tuesday. “We’re going to try to put out footnotes.

For Uninsured, Clearing a Way to Enrollment

The woman, a thin 61-year-old who refused to give her name, citing privacy concerns, had come to the public library here to sign up for health insurance through Kentucky’s new online exchange. She had a painful lump on the back of her hand and other…

Book review: ‘Days of Fire: Bush and Cheney in the White House’ by Peter Baker

Bush By James Mann, Published: October 31 James Mann, a resident fellow at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, is the author of “Rise of the Vulcans: The History of Bush’s War Cabinet.” He is working on a biography of George W. Bush for the American Presidents series. We are in the midst of a wave of revisionism about George W. Bush and his administration. For years, amid the rancor of the Iraq war, Bush was often portrayed as a simple idiot or sometimes as a demonic manipulator. More recently, amid an outpouring of coverage prompted by the April opening of the George W. Bush…

India's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, carrying the Mars orbiter, blasts off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota

– India launched its first rocket to Mars on Tuesday, aiming to put a satellite in orbit around the red planet at a lower cost than previous missions and potentially positioning the emerging Asian nation as a budget player in the global space race. The Mars Orbiter Mission blasted off from the southeastern coast with the satellite scheduled to start orbiting Mars by September, searching for methane and signs of minerals. “This is our modest beginning for our interplanetary mission,” said Deviprasad Karnik, spokesman for the state-run Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). Only the United States, Europe, and Russia have sent probes…
