Traveling trails less traveled
One of my long-time friends and I spent this year's fishing "opener" doing a lots of reminiscing, which in recent years has become more common than catching lots of fish. Tom and I started fishing the opener together back in the mid-1980s, so it needs not to be said we've seen quite a bit of water pass under our boats and canoes while fishing in a wide variety of weather conditions.

Self-pity can be politically fatal
In polls of American historians conducted over the past 17 years by C-SPAN, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt have consistently ranked - along with George Washington - among the three best U.S. presidents.
