NEW YORK -- Sunday marked my 24th Father's Day as a columnist, my 26th since my son uttered "Dada," and my 16th since my own father joined the legions of Interesting People in the Hereafter. Which is to say, there seems hardly anything new to add to the thoughts I've expressed so often before. But then I am reminded that every day, a fresh crop of men become new fathers, and others lay to rest their own.
