What's wrong with kids these days? (11/22/09)
The young Brazil resident sat quietly staring at his shoes while I waited for a response to my question. It wasn't a tough one. "What's wrong?"

Swathed often in black clothes, he's smart, compassionate and has an incredible sense of humor...

And they didn't think I was a rocket scientist...
Try something new this holiday (11/22/09)
To the Editor: Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and many Americans are already feeling more frazzled than festive. Much of this holiday stress comes from trying to create the perfect meal.
