Top 10 TV Shows: #2 Breaking Bad

You see, technically, chemistry is the study of matter, but I prefer to see it as the study of change: Electrons change their energy levels. Molecules change their bonds. Elements combine and change into compounds. But that's all of life, right? It's the constant. It's the cycle. It's solution, dissolution. Just over and over and over. It is growth, then decay, then...

Leonard finds a charity to come first before golf

PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) Justin Leonard ordinarily would have played the final week of the PGA Tour's regular season, and this is one time he probably should have gone.
