LOS ANGELES (AP) — An ingeniously simple setup is cunningly exploited for maximum suspense in "Hours," a slow-building, consistently engrossing drama set during and immediately after the devastation wrought on New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina. Making a most impressive debut as feature helmer, scripter Eric Heisserer graduates from savvy genre fare ("Final Destination 5") to more mainstream moviemaking with this intense tale of a father's desperate efforts to keep his prematurely born daughter alive in a hospital abandoned after power is knocked out by flooding.

But what if your refrigerator’s ice-maker stops working or the door on your self-cleaning oven refuses to latch?

(NAPSI)—How many times have you tried to accelerate onto a freeway with cars zipping by and couldn’t get the power to do it safely? It’s kind of scary, right? Or how about when the van’s filled with kids you’re taking to a soccer game and the super-slow-going uphill quickly turns the trip downhill. It’s kind of frustrating, right? The problem isn’t your driving. Most likely, it’s something lacking from what you’re driving: automotive performance.

All you need to do is step on the gas and wait and wait...and worry.

We hear it all the time: "That's not fair!" It is the secular-progressive war cry. The president seems to use it in every speech. So is this just a clever, politically correct marketing slogan, or do they have a point?

Did the News-Sentinel get taxpayer dollars to run this fictional ad ("Could your fireplace be killing you?" Dec. 29, 2012) or are they leaning more left? Typical scare tactics.
