Pop quiz: Did you know California once banned homework in schools? True. Following a campaign by the magazine Ladies’ Home Journal — which argued that the practice was not, in fact, good for kids — the state briefly halted it in 1901.

To bolster her credentials in her strong conservative base, Sharron Angle, a Republican, shaped her candidacy for the Senate along a few lines of attack — against big government, against high taxes and against illegal immigration.

Foreclosures and plummeting housing prices. That pretty much summarizes daily life in Las Vegas. That's fundamentally changed how America's housing market works, says a Brookings expert.
