Pants on fire: Parenting columnist John Rosemond fields a question from a reader worried about an 8-year-old grandsonís habitual lying (Page B2). Rosemond suggests taking away all of the kidís privileges until he goes 30 days without telling a lie.

Ewwww: Some House conservatives are skittish that their new majority leader, Kevin McCarthy, hails from left-leaning California (Page A7).
