Down on the Farm -- Can't figure out the risk-takers
Driving up a mountain road near Tucson last week, I ran across a group of people I have never understood: Those who take unnecessary and stupid physical risks. First, it was the bicyclists, dozens of them, climbing the narrow hairpin road, utterly confident that the cars would slow...

Down on the Farm -- Getting the best of Dr. Doom
My dentist, Dr. Doom, lost a round last week. My check-up went perfectly. The x-rays showed nothing. My gums aren't receding. My lone remaining wisdom tooth is behaving. One tooth needs a crown, but then Dr. Doom always says that. I ignore him. I figure I'll get it crowned when it...
