At Ron Paul's caucus night event in Ankeny, Iowa, most of his supporters were celebrating. Paul finished a strong third in Tuesday night's caucuses.
But one man in the crowd — famed Republican strategist Frank Luntz — was much more concerned with what happens next.
"I think over the next 24 to 48 hours, the campaign's gonna get a little bit meaner, a little darker, and a little bit more personal, as the candidates now fight for their life," said Luntz, who spoke with NPR in between television appearances Tuesday night. > View article

Two of Bernie Fine's accusers are suing Syracuse University and basketball coach Jim Boeheim for defamation.
Steelers linebacker James Harrison was suspended one game without pay for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Browns quarterback Colt McCoy. Harrison tweeted "LOL" and is appealing.
The new baseball deal calls for more replay, trapped balls and fan interference, but it has to be worked out with the umps. Also, no more roommates for baseball players in spring training. I'm assuming that applies only to fellow players.

A sail down the Thames in 1411 would have felt dismal by comparison. London was busy but disease-ridden, shabby and just plain filthy. In a new book and television series, historian Niall Ferguson asks how the backward West would come to dominate not just China but the rest of the world for 500 years or more, and he identifies six institutions. He calls them killer apps and argues that China is now catching up fast because it downloaded those lessons while Westerners lose faith. > View article

Civil Rights Lecture about one man's quest to openly serve his country.
In 2009, Lt. Daniel Choi, an infantry officer, West Point graduate and Iraq combat veteran publicly announced that he was gay. He then received notice that discharge proceedings were initiated for violating the military's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" (DADT) policy.
Lt. Choi advocated for the repeal of DADT, so that everyone could serve with dignity and respect regardless of sexual orientation. Following a federal judge's order to stop enforcing DADT in 2010 and Lt. Choi's final arrest at the White House, "Don't Ask Don't Tell" was repealed in December.
Today, Lt. Choi continues to advocate for full LGBTQ civil rights worldwide. He promotes veteran health and wellness, is a founder of Knights Out, an organization of West Point Alumni who support the right of LGBTQ officers to serve openly, and he serves on the boards of Marriage Equality USA and the American Foundation for Equal Rights. He is currently pursuing graduate studies at Harvard University, intends to rejoin the military, and remains an avid defender of freedom and justice for all. > View article
