Lucky president. I wish I could get rid of my troubles just by handing them over to the Iraqis. One problem I would hand over to the Iraqis would be the Rev. Sun Myung Moon. You remember Moon, right? Convicted of tax fraud and conspiracy to obstruct justice, performer of mass weddings, demander of total allegiance, man at the heart of Koreagate influence-peddling probe in the mid-'70s, and so on. And now several members of Congress, including our own Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, have just crowned him king.

Man's first walk on the moon 30 years ago was one of those pivotal moments in history when many people still remember exactly what they were doing when it happened. "The whole family sat around when it was happening," said Waynesboro resident Joe Bowling, recounting the moment he watched it on television. "It was neat. But it seems a waste now," said Bowling. "There are other things to worry about. " The idea of a lunar walk was so unusual that some people didn't believe it was happening, area residents said.

Out on the Dual there are so many lights that come in my window. Even on a night where I can't see the sky I have my own personal moon. It shines into my bedroom and casts a shadow on the floor. Though it tries to keep me awake, I love the pale glow of its light on my face, striping me through my blinds. So I finally fall asleep and dream of a real moon instead of the synthetic one across the street.

I tell people that I breed my own cattle - which I do, in the same sense that people who say they “remodeled the kitchen themselves” have really just purchased the materials from a home-improvement center and then watched as an unemployed handyman from down the street does the work ... usually in exchange for soup and a two-week supply of Pabst. It's easy, but not too scientific, to turn a bull loose in the pasture, and then wash your hands of the project for a month or two. I tried this route with moderate success.

If you're flying somewhere for Thanksgiving, I feel for … I mean I can understand your frustration. You don't know if you're boarding a plane or auditioning for a role in "On Golden Blonde.
