By MICHAEL SMERCONISH I received an e-mail last week from a free-lance scheduler who often offers me celebrities for my radio program. He had a question: "Interested in Sarah Palin's dad, Chuck Heath? . . . "His passion for the outdoors is merged with a passion for hunting that he passed on to all his children.

By Dominic Lawson Joseph Robinette Biden - known to all as "Joe" - was once the most talked about American politician in Britain.

By Al Neuharth OXFORD, Miss. -- The first presidential debate may or may not go exactly as planned here tonight at Ole Miss. This red, white and blue decorated campus was abuzz Thursday. Faculty, students and thousands of visitors -- including scores of newsmen and women -- debated whether John McCain's call for cancellation was a patriotic move or a political stunt.

By Alan Pergament More high-definition channels have arrived on Time Warner Cable, but don't expect a 24-hour news channel here any time soon. That's the word from the area's largest cable system. On Wednesday, TWC made good on a statement by a representative in late spring by announcing that five new HD channels are now available on the free HD tier, and the goal is nearly to triple its HD offerings. The new HD channels are CNN HD (721), TBS HD (723), Science Channel HD (737),...
