Liar liar

Liar liar

Pants on fire: Parenting columnist John Rosemond fields a question from a reader worried about an 8-year-old grandsonís habitual lying (Page B2). Rosemond suggests taking away all of the kidís privileges until he goes 30 days without telling a lie.

And if that doesnít work, the boyís talent for lying could be channeled into a lucrative career in corporate communications.

Ewwww: Some House conservatives are skittish that their new majority leader, Kevin McCarthy, hails from left-leaning California (Page A7).

Their fears were allayed, however, after McCarthy pledged to confine his visits to California to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, and installed a decontamination shower in his office to use after meetings with fellow Californian Nancy Pelosi.

Donít know much about history: On this day in 1989, the Supreme Court refused to shut down the ďdial-a-pornĒ industry (Today in History, Page A2).

Writing for the majority, Justice John Paul Stevens cited First Amendment issues, and also the fact that the Internet would wipe out dial-a-porn within about 10 years ó 15, tops.
