  • Las Vegas-Area Democrat Fights For House Seat
    Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.) is in a district she barely won in 2008, which makes this year seem dicier. A sign of how badly Democrats want to hang on to the seat is that House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer came to campaign for her.
  • A Look At The Political Landscape
    For a sense of the broader landscape in this year's midterms, NPR's Melissa Block talks to political handicapper Stuart Rothenberg, editor and publisher of the Rothenberg Political Report.
  • 'I Love My Hair': A Father's Tribute To His Daughter
    A little Muppet girl has started a sensation. The brown doll with a beautifully kinky mop of hair sings "I Love My Hair." The song was written by Joey Mazzarino, Sesame Street's head writer. He wrote the song to help his adopted daughter celebrate herself and, of course, her hair.

  • Hideo: A Video Game Symphony
    After six months' worth of rehearsals, Saturday marked the national unveiling of Hideo, a two-hour concert featuring the music from popular video games and anime.
