Lil Wayne isn’t just the founder of Young Money Cash Money Billionaires, he’s the rap squad’s captain, too. And on “Rise of an Empire,” Weezy plays his role well, anchoring a winning compilation from the camp, and making up for last year’s lackluster “I Am Not a Human Being II.”
State lawmakers agreed to create special exemptions from animal cruelty laws for farmers and ranchers despite complaints that it would ease penalties on those who abuse and beat farm animals to death.
March is Women’s History Month. History has not always been fair to women, don’t even get me started on that big fool Henry VIII, who killed his wives for not giving him a son — when science now knows it was all his fault. My middle-schoolers are always extremely upset about the lack of prominent women in ancient history.

I have never smoked marijuana, however, I agree with Republican Ruben Gallego of Phoenix who stated that weed should be legal in Arizona for economic reasons. He stated that if weed was legalized, costs of prison would be lower.
There are moments in David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” where it feels like you’re watching one of the great Martin Scorsese pictures. It’s a slick, passionately constructed crime drama full of smooth dialog and intriguing characters. Of course “American Hustle” never gets quite as brutal as “Goodfellas,” “Casino,” or even “The Departed.” The film is just as much a crime comedy as it is a crime drama. In that sense, perhaps “American Hustle” is more along the lines of “The Sting,” or “Catch Me if You Can,” or maybe even “The Ocean’s Eleven” movies. Whatever you compare it to, “American Hustle” still works beautifully as an enormously fun con artist picture while also managing to be something deeper.
We have Obamacare, which can’t seem to even sign people up yet. I wonder what will happen when Obamacare gets going? The way it works is as follows: you go to your doctor about some problem that you have. Your doctor can’t diagnose, or treat you until he text messages the 15-member panel. The panel diagnoses your problem, then sends a treatment schedule to your doctor. He reads the treatment, and is required to follow this treatment, or he will be fined $100,000. His second offense will be a fine and jail time. If for some reason he doesn’t agree with the treatment he can send his opposition to the panel, then the panel will rule on treatment.

Last month, two events occurred in the same week that once again had us searching for answers. On Sept. 16, a heavily armed civilian contractor with a history of disorders fatally shot 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard. Later that week, terrorists attacked a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, in a three-day rampage that resulted in the deaths of at least 61 civilians and six Kenyan soldiers.
In reply to the “Local African-American males speak out” (AFN, Sept. 15). These four self proclaimed “community leaders” harshly criticize Linda Turley-Hansen’s (“Not racism, and not guns; it’s moral absence that’s doing the killing,” AFN, Sept. 6) factual, if blunt, article on the death of Chris Lane, in a long diatribe that has too many racially charged slants and accusations to answer succinctly. No one is elected or appointed a “community leader.” Being highly opinionated and putting out lots of racially motivated editorial pieces does not make one a leader of anything.
Arizona’s top prosecutor is ready to agree that a century-old state law making begging a crime is unconstitutional and cannot be legally enforced.
Talk about a promising duo for a dark mob comedy: Robert De Niro, whose mob-film pedigree needs no explanation, and Michelle Pfeiffer, who was, after all, “Married to the Mob.”
The outlaw romance "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" is a lyrical, sepia-toned folk tale, awash in 1970s filmmaking and the kind of stylized folksiness that pickling Brooklyn hipsters with handlebar mustaches will positively drool over.
