Sister's Day is Sunday, Aug. 6, and these are the times when you are really, really happy you write a newspaper column and your sisters don't (that sound you don't hear is me rubbing my hands together very gleefully -- OK, where to start this rip job ... ). Seriously, I have very little bad to say about my sisters, even though they outnumber me 4-to-1. And it's Sister's Day, which kind of implies that you're supposed to be nice to them. My oldest sister, Deb, is a gifted education teacher and a school counselor. She's about 10 years older than I (which makes her, what, 35 now?

Camp opened for rookies on July 27, and the veterans came in on July 30. New coach Brad Childress opened camp with a conditioning test for all the players.

My Son the Man Suddenly his shoulders get a lot wider, the way Houdini would expand his body while people were putting him in chains. It seems no time since I would help him to put on his sleeper, guide his calves into the gold interior, zip him up and toss him up and catch his weight.
I'm a liberal. I pride myself on seeing both sides to every question. For example, although I am strongly "pro-choice" on the question of abortion, I can understand the "pro-life" argument, as well. There is a certain sentimental appeal to the idea that any abortion is the taking of human life and thus not to be considered under any circumstances.
