(05/02/05 4:00am)

 The way a person unwraps a present can say a lot about him or her. I realized that this past weekend as I handled ameticulously wrapped box placed in my lap. Karen had wrapped it so tightly that there was no evident fold under which I could slide my finger, gently undo the tape and extract the gift with the paper relatively intact.“What are you doing?” she laughed. “Who cares about the wrapping? Just rip it!” Three minutes later, when I was still searching for the perfect opening, Karen and the other women ceased to find me so cute. Half afraid they were going to take back the present, leave the party, or both, I gave into peer pressure and tore the gift open, somehow still managing to keep the wrapping in three delightfully whole pieces.

A wintry mix is blowing into Ohio today and the snow will be arriving tomorrow and lasting a few days, so he will have to plow through the elements with his snowshoes in daytime temperatures hovering in the high twenties.

Society in America today is like a 100-yard dash in which two groups are running, said lawyer, lobbyist and civil rights activist Randall Robinson. "One group runs, and the second group, you shoot them in the knees and say, 'Run! You can catch up!' But you can never catch up because great crimes have never been addressed," he said.
