The Democrats portrayed their performance as vindication of their agenda.  And the Republicans did not get out the vote as much as they had hoped in spite of the high inflation, crime and a faltering economy they promised to fix. Now is the time for bipartisanship in the Senate and House.

Looking for Christmassy fun up in the clouds? You’re in the right place if you’re in Pozuelo de Alarcon, northeast of the Autonomous Community of Madrid.

The first Semana Grande of Saint-Jean-de-Luz was a commemoration of the 300th anniversary of the marriage of Louis XIV of France to the Spanish Infanta Maria Teresa. The tenth Semana Grande was a powerfully Spanish festival that wowed all those who came to attend.
