CANDICE TELLS ALL: Contemporary family room is rustic, yet refined - Kate and Sean run a busy household. They have two teenagers, a couple of dogs and a pet snake named Onions. After hectic days spent at work, school or playing sports, the family likes to gather at home for some good, old-fashioned R&R. There was just one problem.

KENT BUSH: D.C. helps elect president but can’t vote in Congress - I wonder how many people even know that the Electoral College includes more than just the 50 states. Congress is made up of representatives and senators from the 50 states. Several groups have non-voting delegates to Congress. Those include American Samoa, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Northern Marianas Islands, Guam and the District of Columbia. By Kent Bush, Augusta, Kan.
CHARITA GOSHAY: Campaign is chock full of tongue-tripping - For “word people,” one of the benefits of the political season is knowing that someone is bound to blurt out something, misspeak or otherwise make a remark that will find its way into the American pop culture lexicon. By Charita Goshay, Canton, Ohio.
AMY GEHRT: Rape is not a political belief - Over the course of this bruising election cycle, voters have been subjected to an array of misstatements, half-truths and outright lies.

The source of some political disagreements even stem from a legitimate difference of opinion or personal belief system. By Amy Gehrt, Pekin, Ill.
