Few people have been unscathed by the gnarly fingers of the recession. The hardest hit have been mangled by lost jobs, homes and savings. Other have just been grazed by pay freezes amid inflation, reduced or eliminated employer retirement contributions, frozen credit lines or altered insurance coverage. Perhaps one of the most subtle symptoms of the recession is what I think of as the incredible shrinking product. In an effort of survive skyrocketing production costs, manufacturers have been faced with a choice: raise product prices or reduce package sizes.

George Washington may be the father of our country, but he gave someone else the credit for his success. "My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her. " Mary Ball Washington may not have been the first Little League mom, but she did have a hand in creating one of the nation's first All-Americans. Every successful man is said to have a woman standing behind him. Before Washington's wife, Martha, came along, the first President's mom paved the way with her attention.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Under different circumstances, Maryland might have been bitterly disappointed to end its season with a lopsided defeat. The Terrapins displayed no shame Saturday when they walked off court following an 89-70 loss to Memphis in the second round of the NCAA tournament. The setback did nothing to detract from what they had accomplished to that point, and each player knew the situation could have been much worse. After all, their final game didn't take place in the NIT. Maryland seemed destined to miss the NCAA tournament for the fourth time in five years before mounting a late surge that netted a No. 10 seed in the West Regional.
