"Gas in Martinsburg, $3.65. Jefferson County, you people should boycott all the service stations in Jefferson County, and go the 15 minutes to Martinsburg to buy the gas. Get the prices down in the county. " - Jefferson County, W.Va. "It is about time they did some searches on prison personnel. It is a shame that inmates go in without a drug problem, but end up having one while in there. Every type of drug is available. They check visitors going in, so it is coming in there some other way. Thanks for starting to finally check.

BEIJING (AP) -- Halfway around the world, President Bush managed to cap his Olympic experience at a place he calls home: a baseball field. Bush listens to baseball games like background music at the White House, a sound that puts him at ease. And so here in Beijing, comfortably keeping an eye on a baseball game, Bush reflected on an Olympics experience that was extraordinary even by presidential standards. "It's exceeded my expectations," Bush told The Associated Press in an interview Monday before returning to Washington.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- Michael Phelps led by a wing on Sunday afternoon before someone picked him up and threw him farther beyond the front of the pack. That's one way to win a race. The Phelps moving through the waters of the Conococheague Creek did not capture the world's attention with perfect 8-for-8 gold medal performances last week. Instead, it was the Olympic athlete's likeness -- well, as much as can be re-created on a yellow rubber duck -- that turned out for a swim benefiting the American Cancer Society.

The anticipation's killing me. I'm about to burst. You must be feeling the same way these days. Major League Baseball trades, NBA deals, NFL camps, preseason college football polls, upcoming court cases ... there's nothing to do but look ahead. Projection, anticipation, projection, anticipation. So let's slow things down for a minute of reflection on some recent events. Ed-die! Ed-die! Ed-die! The Memorial Stadium chant mesmerized me as a 10-year-old boy making his first trip to a big-league game in the summer of 1982.

The inability to sit still was a defining characteristic of Phillip Urbak's childhood. While classmates would quietly sit at their desks, Urbak was a squirmer. He made good grades, he recalled, and often was on the honor roll. But he was easily distracted and had trouble with time management. Those patterns continued into college, where he would procrastinate and then pull all-nighters to study for an exam. He missed out on an internship one year because he forgot to show up for an interview.
