Stair Landings Worth a Stopover



Classic Recamier sofa and swing arm lamps

Q: We have an odd configuration in our entry hall: The stairs split left and right, leading up to the landing into the living room. It's the first thing you see, so I'd like to make it attractive, but the space is kind of small. Any ideas?

A: Any space, however small, can pay big decorating dividends. Generously sized stair landings are comparatively rare in contemporary architecture, so you must have an older home and -- let's hope -- the architectural detailing to go with it.

'Killer' Cast, Not Much Flash


Robert De Niro. Jason Statham. These are two iconic names that, alone, have carried some of the best tough-guy blockbusters. Toss in the second-tier talent of Clive Owen, and you've got an unstoppable action triumvirate.  It's a pity, then, that "Killer Elite," an early-autumn blast of muscle that stars all three, is such a by-the-book affair. Master thespian De Niro has slinked too comfortably into supporting roles for the better part of two decades now. Here, he gnaws on as much scenery as he can playing a veteran assassin named Hunter who gets kidnapped by a sheikh (Rodney Afif).

Bam's Government Loans to Nowhere Bill



Michelle Malkin

President Obama still hasn't learned the classic First Rule of Holes: When you're in one, stop digging. Up to his earlobes in failed stimulus grants and tainted federal loan guarantees, the shoveler in chief tunneled forward this week on his latest Government Loans to Nowhere bill. His willful ignorance is America's abyss.  Little noticed in the White House jobs-for-cronies proposal is a provision creating yet another corruption-friendly "government corporation" that would dole out public infrastructure loans and loan guarantees.

Gordon: On Flood Relief, Tea Party Driscoll Trying To Have It Both Ways


Noting Freeholder John Driscoll's avowed support for the Tea Party, which currently is holding essential relief for flood victims hostage to Washington politics, Senator Bob Gordon today noted the irony in Driscoll's recent statement that the federal government needs to provide flood relief.

Last month, Driscoll – who has been a speaker at several Tea Party rallies over the past year – proudly toured Bergen County with Congressman Scott Garrett, one of the Tea Party's Congressional darlings, who has aligned himself with the right-wing of his party in holding flood relief for Bergen families as a pawn in political dealings. Then in yesterday's Record, Driscoll was quoted as saying, “people need to understand that the help needs to come from the federal government.”
