President Barack Obama speaks during a news conference in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House in Washington, Friday, Dec. 19, 2014. When the leaders of the U.S. and Cuba had their first phone conversation in more than 50 years, they were not at a loss for words. As President Barack Obama told the story at his news conference Friday, he opened his call with Cuban President Raul Castro _ brother of famously longwinded Fidel _ with a 15-minute monologue, then apologized for taking so much time. "He said, 'Don't worry about it, Mr. President,’” Obama related. “’You're still a young man, and you have still the chance to break Fidel's record. He once spoke seven hours straight." (AP Photo/J.

  • Suit calls state school funding arbitrary and irrational

    In 1999, the state Supreme Court ruled that the question of state school funding was a political issue for the Legislature, not one for the judiciary.
