We take stock of the Clippers. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are very different kinds of stars. How’s Vinny Del Negro faring? That depends on what you’re rating.

Although Mitt Romney was initially declared the winner, a later tally, after the votes were certified and recounted, showed Rick Santorum ahead by 19 votes. The 24-cable news chan[...]
