An overjoyed Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are the proud parents of a healthy baby boy, and the nation celebrates the birth of a future king. The couple’s son weighed 8lb 6oz and was delivered at 4.24pm today at the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington with his proud father, Prince William, looking on. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well and will remain in hospital overnight, said a spokesman for the palace. The long-awaited baby will be given the title His Royal Highness and be known as Prince of Cambridge,

I was wrong again, I thought it would be a 6 lb. girl.

This is a big baby for such a tiny woman.

Congrats to all!

It´s news and interesting and I wish the couple well, but I´ve been amazed to see the coverage this has gotten.

We´re Americans. We didn´t like royalty and many of the things it stands for. I´m surprised at the level of devotion by the MSM and people commenting -- and the still present reverence for Diana.

But at least it gives us a break from the Trayvon coverage.

The birth of a baby is a joy to the parents, whether they´re "royal" or poor as church mice.

I share in their joy. Congratulations to the new parents.

As an aside, this means it will be one more generation before the new rule of inheritance of the throne can be used--that the first born child succeeds, whether male or female.

As I understand it, the name the baby goes by may not be the name he assumes as King. William, for instance, could choose one of his several other given names. His great-grandfather, King George VI, was known in the family as "Bertie," his first name being Albert.

Many best wishes to this young child and to his parents.

And won´t the radical feminists be angry! They wanted a girl just to break precedent.

I was talking to my Mother earlier this afternoon as it is her 89th birthday. I told her that in my mind, I bet on Kate´s child being born today as it was a full moon. She smiled on the other end of the line.

Great news as I so appreciate Her Royal Highness & Prince William. My Mother also thought it was a good sign that both the brothers have served honorably in their Military. Happy first day, little one.

I´ve enjoyed the coverage of this young couple and wish them well with their new baby. William and Kate seem like genuine, decent people who love and respect each other, and they exude grace and class. They waited to have a child until after marriage, which is the proper thing to do.

Meanwhile, here in the U. S., we have the...Kardashians. Oy vey! What role models!

Congratulations to the parents and to all of our UK friends who are celebrating. Here´s to LIFE!

Not trying to be crabby, but I´m guessing that the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary´s hospital must be much nicer than the rest of that place. While visiting London a couple of years ago, I had to take my daughter to the emergency room and St. Mary´s was the closest to our hotel. It was dingy, dirty, shabby and crumbling. The end result of socialized medicine - we saw it in Romania too.

Name him Richard! In honour of the discovery of the body of Richard III last year - a great archeological moment.

Actually, I remember when Prince William was born, in 1982. It was right at the end of the Falklands War, and the British had retaken Port Stanley. Some people suggested the new royal baby should be named "Stanley" in honour of the victory. But the prospect of "Good King Stan" didn´t seem to be enough for the royal family to break with tradition.

That was a quick labor. Congratulations to the parents and the Royal Family.

Critics abound, but this family has survived and maintained the aura of royalty when all the other crowned heads of Europe have disappeared or become quite common. The monarchy was proclaimed dead after George III and his useless brood, again after Victoria, after the abdication of Edward VII and in the 1970s. Yet here the monarchy is is on the ascendency in Elizabeth II´s diamond jubilee year with the birth of a boy to a popular heir presumptive

Congrats to our royal allies across the pond.
I am sure Queen Elizabeth has recently found a new appreciation for religion. She must have been praying to newly minted St. John Paul for a boy, not a girl, because I am sure she thought the new baby would be named Diane (in honor of the late princess) whom she hated with a passion.

To Kate: Now let´s work on #2. Don´t forget the old saying, "A heir and a spare."

Congratulations to the Cambridges. It´s possible that the boy, if named George, would actually reign as George VIII, since there´s been speculation that Prince Charles would choose to reign under the name George if he does ascend to the throne. The previous two guys named King Charles were not exactly an illustrious precedent for a future Charles III.

#58, I seriously doubt it. There might be a discreet Royal Warrant, as in:

The warrant is typically advertised on company hoardings, letter-heads and products by displaying the coat of arms or the heraldic badge of the royal personage as appropriate. Underneath the coat of arms will usually appear the phrase "By Appointment to..." followed by the title and name of the royal customer, and then what goods are provided. No other details of what is supplied may be given.

The doctor´s warrant might simply say "provider of medical services" or something low-key like that. See: http://tinyurl.com/ly64l8j

As for the name, I´d love to see the child named after William´s brother, Henry (or Harry, as he is more commonly known). He might also be named Michael, after Kate´s father. As long as he´s not named Charles. . . .

However, this is not a day for cynicism. Heartfelt congratulations and best wishes to the Royal Family and all of Great Britain. Lord knows it´s nice to see some happy news for a change!

#62 - that would be Henry IX. And I doubt he´ll be named Henry. William´s brother is Henry. Harry is just a nickname.

Thank you, Lucianne Staff.

I never thought of Spencer as one of the middle names, but I think it would be entirely appropriate. I´ve thought of "James" as well, to honor the King that gave us the King James Bible, or George, to honor the Queen´s father.

Congrats to the proud parents. That´s a big baby. My daughter was 8lbs 4oz so yeah I´m sure that was some work pushing but Kate looked as good as ever. I say name the boy Richard since that´s such a strong kingly name. Whatever you do don´t name him after grandpa Charlie. We all know what kind of stand up guy he turned out to be.

When a video of high school student Jeff Bliss calling out his teacher went viral, a lot of people started talking about the state of our education system and ways to improve it. However, almost a year since the video was posted, not much has changed. In fact, many would say that with the extension of Common Core curriculum across most of the country, it has actually gotten worse. Take this attempted explanation of Common Core’s approach to math: (Letter & Charts) How is this helping?

It´s not just carriage horse drivers saying neigh to plans for vintage cars tooling around Central Park. The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars. Doug Blonsky, the conservancy’s president & CEO, told the Daily News that introducing the electric vehicles to the park would be a bad idea. “Forty million people visit Central Park each year, including runners, bicyclists, kids and dog owners,” Blonsky said Wednesday. “Adding vehicles to the mix will make the

Shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, a 19-year-old in a hoodie and baggy jeans was captured on a grainy black-and-white surveillance video urinating into a reservoir that slakes the thirst of Portland, Ore.’s 600,000 or so residents. (Cue the disgusted “Ewwwwwwwws!” right here.) But really, Portland Water Bureau officials, do you have to flush 38 million gallons of potable water for the sake of a cup or two of human urine? That’s how much the bladder comfortably holds, although the bladder in question obviously wasn’t comfortable. We get the fact that Beervana prides itself on its water supply. The water bureau

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

The team behind the upcoming TV movie about convicted killer Kermit Gosnell counted on the public to help them fund their project. They said that the mainstream media and Hollywood didn´t give Gosnell´s horrific crimes the attention they deserved. The result?

Filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney credit the support of popular actors Kevin Sorbo and Nick Searcy for starring in videos promoting the project.

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

At the same Clinton Foundation-sponsored event Thursday where Chelsea Clinton announced her first pregnancy to the world, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a question from a young, 19-year-old woman who chose to publicly reveal her status as an undocumented immigrant. “That was incredibly brave,” Clinton told the woman after she shared her story. The woman, who introduced herself as Nova, got emotional as she told Clinton and the other people in attendance that she was an undocumented immigrant. Struggling through tears, she continued, “I want to say that it’s been extremely difficult for me

President Obama mocked Republican opponents of his health care law on Thursday, saying that they were going through the “stages of grief” and that critics should accept that the law is here to stay. “I recognize that their party is going through, you know, the stages of grief, right?,” said Obama during a press briefing at the White House. “Anger and denial and all that stuff and it -- we´re not at acceptance yet -- but at some point, my assumption is, is that there will be an interest to figure out how do we make this work in the

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday.

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
