Cushman: Exercise, routine and life

While new and novel might be exciting, routine and habit can help create a structure and framework for success.

Cohen: A president lacking menace

Tell me something: What do you think would happen if the United States concludes that Iran has been cheating and delaying and is about to pop a fully functional nuclear weapons program?

My bet is the latter and so, just to double down, is what I bet the Iranians are betting. They have taken the measure of Obama. He lacks menace.

Dominoes anyone?

I came across an old box of dominoes. Before I knew it, I found myself lining up the tiles like tiny soldiers. The line marched right to the edge of the table before curling around until the last tile faced me. I leaned over to inspect my handiwork. Too close and the pieces would tumble. Too far apart and it would suddenly end. Numerous adjustments led to a sense of satisfaction. Finally, I let my finger tap the first tile. A steady beat of clicks accompanied the toppling path through its course. The rhythm slowed slightly at curves and corners ...
