A little homework never hurt anyone

Q: My son will be starting sixth grade at a new public charter school this year. This school uses a "classic" curriculum that does not draw from pop culture and sets high academic standards. The kids wear uniforms, are expected to demonstrate respect for one another and are punished if they misbehave. Furthermore, they are not rewarded for good behavior; it is simply expected. My only concern is that they assign two to three hours of homework nightly. That seems excessive to me. Do you agree, or should I stop worrying?

Obama repeats end of Iraq combat promise

ATLANTA - Nearing a milestone in the long and divisive Iraq war, President Barack Obama on Monday hailed this month's planned withdrawal of all U.S. combat troops - "as promised and on schedule" - as a major success despite deep doubts about the Iraqis' ability to police and govern their country.

Portraying the end of America's combat role in the 7-year war as a personal promise kept, Obama said Iraq will have 90,000 fewer U.S. troops by September than when he took office - a steady homeward flow he called "a season of homecomings." But there could still be ...

Retire 'Expendables' if recent episode is all they can do
