October 09, 2008

Race to the White House continues

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Sen. Barrack Obama (D-Ill.) give the undecided another chance to make up their minds at 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 15. The Maverick debates the Candidate Who Promises Change You Can Count On on domestic and economic issues. Sorry, no "House" tonight. Watch the debate on CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and C-SPAN.

Take your mama out tonight

Call a sitter. It's "Mama's Night Out" at The Capitol Theatre in Chambersburg, Pa. This trio of funny mommies say that motherhood isn't what their show's all about. It's about having a good time -- usually without the kids.
