OK, so the end of the world didn't happen. Hmm. Time to regroup. Now what? 1. I guess I have to keep being a nice guy. I have a fantasy of being Bill Murray's character in “Scrooged” for like a week ... 2. I suppose I won't give a dirty look to the woman who just butted in front of me in line at the post office. 3. Figure out how to pay for that 90-inch plasma TV and gold-plated toilet I just purchased on QVC using an 18.9 percent interest-rate credit card I thought I would never have to pay. 4. Take back my generators and 16 packs of “D” batteries.

I would personally like to thank National Geographic for abandoning its mission of education, science and natural beauty long enough to bring us a television show chronicling the activities of a handful of certifiable wackos. This would be the community known as “preppers,” people who believe the world is going to end, or at least partially end, and want to be able to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. Before I offend (and you know it's coming) any of these preppers, especially the ones with guns - which is pretty much all of them - I should mention that I'm not too far from going over to the dark side myself.

Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you that sports dominates my life. Some people think this is a negative (see my wife, Julie), but I believe this is a positive. I know that my background in sports has helped me in the business world, and I believe participation in sports can only enhance your resume when you are ready to enter the working world. One attribute that sports helps teach is teamwork. To be successful, you will need to work with your teammates. Teammates that get along with each other tend to play better together.

It was 8:45 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, and I was at work at Maryland Correctional Institution south of Hagerstown. Someone said that an airplane had flown into the World Trade Center. I went to an adjacent office, turned on a TV and watched in horror as the blue skies over New York City turned to black, gray and then white smoke. A plane had crashed into the 80th floor of the North Tower of the World Trade Center. The site became even more horrific as a second plane flew into the 60th floor of the South Tower.

Man, do we still have some work to do. It seems that in the 2010 decade, every time humankind takes a step forward, someone does something - calculated or spontaneous - that drags the whole lot of us back a few steps. For every Nobel-worthy effort, there's a pro football player uttering a hateful racial slur at a country music concert. For every missionary effort to an orphanage in Uganda or to the poorest part of our country, there's a man abducting women and trapping them in his house for a decade.
