    Trump defends inflammatory comments, asks ‘Who is doing the raping?’

    WASHINGTON — Businessman Donald Trump continued his verbal attack against illegal immigrants on Wednesday, in an exclusive interview set to air at 10 p.m. on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon.

    ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ episodes pulled from TV Land

    NEW YORK — Bo and Luke Duke are no longer flying through Hazzard County on TV Land. The network has pulled episodes of “The Dukes of Hazzard” from its schedule, a spokesperson for TV Land confirmed on Wednesday.

    New York prison escapees broke out more than once

    MALONE, N.Y. — David Sweat and Richard Matt didn’t just pull off a brazen and elaborate prison escape — they actually did it twice.

    Long-term life support on Mars should be possible someday, study says

    When the first two human colonists land on Mars, they could step into their ready-made living quarters, remove their space helmets and inhale deliciously breathable air. The quarters would have an optimal mixture of gases for human respiration, and be perfectly pressurized, air-conditioned and thoroughly filtered, if a design paper by a space life-support company becomes reality. And that air will have been waiting there for two years for the astronauts to arrive. That much time is needed to make […]

    ‘Creed’ trailer offers first look at ‘Rocky’ spinoff

In the first trailer for the film, we learn that the young Creed didn’t really know his father, who was killed in the […]

    Historians baffled by handprint on Declaration of Independence

    WASHINGTON — It’s one of the nation’s most important founding documents but the Declaration of Independence — the document that paved the way for the creation of the United States — hasn’t always been treated with the care you might expect.
