There were hurdles to get over before ever reporting for my chosen wilderness course.

Thought for tomorrow

When I was a younger man, I believed that progress was inevitable -- that the world would be better tomorrow and better still the day after. The thunder of war, the stench of concentration camps, the mushroom cloud of the atomic bomb are, however, not conducive to optimism. All our tomorrows for years to come will be clouded by the threat of a terrible holocaust.

Buck up for safety

Everyone have a pleasant Thanksgiving and safe travels? No underwear bombers? Good, glad to hear it. Now, say your thanks to the sleepless Transportation Security Administration administrator John Pistole and his agency.

'Modern Bride'

WASHINGTON -- I've been wallowing in exit polls and poring over debt- reduction plans, so perhaps you'll forgive a brief walk on the low-brow side.
