Brennan: Arctic view was a life-changer

By Tom Brennan | Much of Alaska got a spectacular view of space this week though a lot of folks in Southcentral saw little to brag about. The problem was largely, as it always is, light pollution.

Shapiro: SCOTUS confirmation hearings have become kabuki theater
