Horoscope for January 29, 2010
January 30, 2010 in print edition on C6
For Saturday, Jan. 30: This year, your actions could be, at best, provocative to some and distorted to others. Make sure you have all the facts and are not coming from a place of judgment. Often you only see situations as you would like them to be. If you are single, you meet people with ease, yet maintaining a long-term tie is challenging at best. If you are attached, the two of you need to work on mutuality and better understanding.

Embracing the party line
January 30, 2010 in print edition on A7
If you live long enough in Washington you’ll learn there is literally nothing new under the sun.

Conservatives sincerely hope the rest of the party buys that reasoning and pushes it all the way to defeat in the November election.
