Kids’ fun in the sun hasn’t been eradicated completely. I watched two of my grandchildren after school yesterday — Cailin, who’s 11 and almost taller than I am (which isn’t difficult), and Hunter, who’s almost 6. Although both cousins have all the electronic accoutrements of modern childhood, they couldn’t wait to get outside to play dragon and princess. They were still outside at 9 o’clock playing ball when I decided that it was time to come inside. I’ve talked to my grandchildren about my childhood (born in 1950) when no one wore helmets to ride bikes, and we lived to tell the tales. They can’t imagine having just one channel on TV and no computers. McDonald’s wasn’t around, either. Records? What are those? And just try to explain the telephone party line system to kids who have been raised with cell phones.p>Great column, Bill! br> — Kitty Myers br> Painted Post, New York /p> p> KEEP IT SIMPLE br> Re: Jackie Mason & Raoul Felder’s Immigration: A Simple Solution : /p>

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
