Mecca: Kilroy was here!

He sported a big elongated nose, a smooth bald head, beady eyes, and three to four fingers of each hand dangled over the imaginary line of an imaginary wall. A rather comical figure, yet pitifully ugly if symbolic of a real person, Kilroy quickly developed into one of the historic symbols of World War II.

Adagio for Strings

I love rainy days. Always have. When I was a kid, some of the best hikes, the best camps, the best explorations I ever had as a Boy Scout were in downright downpours. There's nothing like traipsing out in it, getting through those first few minutes of going from warm and dry to soaked, thus being freed to stomp about in the biggest puddles and study the routes the water takes as it runs off seeking the ocean.

Kennedy’s Legacy

Liberalism lost its most reliable champion with the passing of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy this week. The senator virtually defined American liberalism for his 47 years in public office and it is not easy to see who will step into his role. But before his body has even been laid to rest, some of his colleagues are hoping to use the senator's death to push through ObamaCare. Several senators have urged that legislation be named in Kennedy's honor in hopes that his Senate colleagues, including Republicans, be persuaded to pass a bill quickly.

My eureka moment

My little girl usually sits with me and my wife during church. [Sunday] we sat in the balcony while she sat down front on the front row because today was the day the fifth graders were anointed as acolytes. The church service was nice, but for me it proved to be an hour of reflection as I sat looking at the back of my 10-year-old's head.

One thing that I have always wanted for my family is stability, perhaps a sense of normalcy. As a child my parents did a good job of providing that for me and my ...
