But is it really a Harley without the noisy exhaust? Harley-Davidson says it will unveil its first electric motorcycle next week, and the iconic company aims to be a leader in developing technology for e-vehicles.

Ooops: HBO has given the go-ahead to a new television series about the Texas political scene, with characters based on real-life Texas politicians.

Keeps drifting away at Page 104: Former and perhaps future first daughter Chelsea Clinton hasn’t been seen on NBC News since January, even though she is reportedly being paid $600,000 a year as an on-air correspondent.
