Noted and passed - Dec. 24, 2012

• As you settle back to enjoy holiday football, we have a startling statistic for you regarding the size of college football players. A recent survey which focused on linemen over seven decades revealed the average lineman today weighs more than half again as much as his 1950 counterpart. Over that time, according to a recent news report, the average offensive and defensive lineman grew to just over 290 pounds from just above 190. We can't even predict how big they'll be in another 50 years.

Was it really Santa Claus?

Childhood is a wonderful time! A small child really believes he or she could "catch a falling start and put it … in a pocket." Nothing is impossible. Also, the warmth of love and acceptance comes from family and friends. Nowhere are the problems of finance or payment. Some children even tell their parents, when told they are big boys or girls, "I don't want to grow up." Even the story Peter Pan concerns a group of children who fly off with Peter, who has never had to grow up.

Ariail for Dec. 24, 2012

December 24, 2012 | | Ariail


WASHINGTON -- It is a conundrum of wordsmiths that sometimes events are so horrible that words escape us. Bereft of the tools of our trade, we are left with what is perhaps the only appropriate response to something as heart-stopping as the massacre of children: silence.
