Some Republicans in Congress, having wasted the 2012 election trying to get rid of President Obama with Obamacare as their bludgeon, are now talking about crippling him in the 2014 midterm cycle by crying impeachment. With Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's ambition of making Obama "a one-term president" dashed in 2012, other GOP congressmen are also talking of trying to remove him on grounds that he is exceeding his presidential powers, on issues ranging from immigration to the minimum wage to gay rights and Obamacare.

Mike Smith made 33 saves and the Lightning finished off the Devils 4-2 on Sunday in the completion of a game that was suspended two nights earlier because a lighting problem at Newark's Prudential Center created a safety issue for the players. Tampa Bay led 3-0 when play was suspended Friday night with 9:12 left in the second period, and it only had to kill off the final 29:12 on Sunday to snap a 10-game losing streak against New Jersey. Only about 3,000 fans of the announced crowd of 15,129 returned to see the completion of the game.

A note about Jeff Yeatman: I sought him out; he did not contact me. Until I asked, he'd never given an interview about the random act of madness that occurred 15 years ago near his office in downtown Baltimore. "I actively avoided it at the time," he says, "because I resented the idea that I had to share something very fresh and awful just because other people found it interesting. " I came across his name while searching Google for articles about walking to work. This headline, from The Baltimore Sun of Feb. 3, 1999, popped up: "Lawyer wounded walking to work.

The crowd - thousands of men, women and children, dressed for the heat in T-shirts, shorts and bathing suits - had been waiting on the beach for hours.
