  • In The Missouri Senate Race, Who's The Insider?
    After four terms in the Senate, Missouri Republican Christopher Bond is retiring. For Democrats, it could be a rare chance to pick up a seat. But the mood in the country is decidedly anti-politician, and Democratic Senate candidate Robin Carnahan hails from one of Missouri's best-known political families. At the same time, her Republican rival, Roy Blunt, has been a member of the House for 14 years.
  • Favre Doesn't Address Allegations After Game
    The Minesotta Vikings lost a close Monday night football game to the New York Jets 29-22. It marked wide receiver Randy Moss' first game this year in a Vikings' uniform.

  • Tense Political Climate Precedes Vote In Bahrain
    The tiny Persian Gulf kingdom holds parliamentary elections on Oct. 23. But political changes made by the country's Sunni Muslim rulers to give the Shiite majority more rights could be offset by recent crackdowns targeting Shiite militants.
  • Google Invests In Offshore Wind Farms

  • Gap Drops New Logo; Back To White On Navy Blue
