Some people in grade school were teacher’s pets. Not me. I was always the librarian’s pet. At my elementary school, the librarian made a practice of giving me first dibs on hot, new children’s books. I was a regular at the children’s book room at...

I’ve got vivid memories of my childhood bout with Chickenpox. I remember lying miserable in bed for days as I assume plenty of my fellow first graders were doing at the same time, given that the disease is highly contagious and spread by coughing and other contact. The...

It was one of those truly unforgettable days for those of us entangled in the history of American politics, as we watched the December 12 Alabama election unfold on local TV screens. The Democratic victor, Doug Jones, as we all know now, is on his way to the U.S. Senat...
