I've read many times by many different writers that regardless of how old we really are, in our minds we always see ourselves in our youth. At my age, that requires overlooking a few very minor details, such as a balding pate, aching feet, a bad back and worsening eyesight. I thought about that when I realized it was 30 years ago this year that I graduated from college. Those college years are the prism through which I seem to view many things, perhaps because I've carried over to middle age many of those college-era passions and ideals.

Racism survey at Waynesboro High WAYNESBORO, Pa. - In November, the editor of the Waynesboro Area Senior High School student newspaper, prompted by seeing students wearing Confederate flags on their clothes, wrote an editorial titled "The Shadow of Racism. " The newspaper also asked about 120 of the school's 1,350 students if they thought racism was a problem. About 70 percent said it was. The survey was unscientific and polled only a fraction of the student population, but it raised a flap that reached all the way to the Waynesboro School Board.

When I walked through the front door of West Virginia University's student newspaper on a cold, gray January day in 1976, little did I know the journey I was about to set out on. Since then, I've been in the same room with three U.S. presidents and met scores of U.S. senators, congressmen and governors. I've interviewed an astronaut (Jim Lovell), an Olympic gold medalist (Jean-Claude Killy) and a larger-than-life preacher (Jerry Falwell). I was able to meet a bunch of media superstars, including all four of my newspaper heroes - Ben Bradlee, Carl Bernstein, Bob Woodward and Katherine Graham - the finest foreign affairs reporter-newspaper columnist of his generation, Tom Friedman, and the best political reporter of his era, David Broder.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Bill Press, the now ex-host of CNN's lively "Crossfire" who makes his living trying to sort out the truth in the babble of politicians, found himself at the center of the spin cycle Wednesday. Within the last 24 hours, the liberal talk show host learned he had lost his job on the spirited and sometimes rough-and-tumble news show, in which he and conservative commentator Robert Novak debate issues. Press has watched plenty of politicians and other official types lose their jobs and try to put the best face on it. How would he handle it?
