New Report
Senate Democrats have released a report showing that a 2004 deal to repatriate foreign profits with lower corporate taxes did nothing to create jobs.

Posey Improves
Injured San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey is showing improvement and should be able to return to the team next season... when he will then be beated almost to death by a bunch of L.A. Dodger fans.
