  • The 26th magical mile

    Before I wrote this column Monday evening, I had to go for a run.
    I had been sitting at my desk all afternoon and evening reading reports about the explosions that killed at least two people and injured hundreds of others near the finish line at the Boston Marathon. I held back tears as I viewed images taken by photographers of the gruesome scene, the sidewalks covered in blood.
    Initially, I thought it had to be a hoax.
    Why would anyone do something like this at one of our oldest, most prestigious running events?
    It was unthinkable.

And anyone can do it!

  • Legislature is working to improve the lives of children

    Every legislative session, the General Assembly looks for ways it can improve the lives of our children, both in the classroom and when it comes to their safety.
    This year, the House and Senate passed several new laws that further both of these goals.
    One of the more widely publicized will establish a permanent, independent panel to review those cases in which a child either died or was severely injured as a result of abuse or neglect.

    Kids like lettuce, too!

    Dear McDonalds,
    Hey, listen up!
    Why don’t you put lettuce on kids meals?
    It would go good with the cheeseburgers.
    You people have no respect for our health. Lettuce is VERY healthy.
    Put lettuce on them. You would probably get more money.
    PLEASE put lettuce on them.
    Write back! And I mean it.
    Your customer,
