    "Do these jeans make me look fat?"

    Smart men don't answer that question. Smart women don't ask it. But all women think it. Especially single women who are trying to bag a boy. After all, a man's first impression is based on a woman's looks. And single men are looking at more than...

    The anti-war forces in America have blundered, and it's making them lose the war -- for our hearts and minds.
