When a city, or a state, loses its daily newspaper, something of its soul is lost with it. It’s as if ancient Athens had lost its agora, the forum at its center where scholars taught and great debates were held. Or if Jerusalem lost its Western Wall, its last standing connection with the ancient Temple where sacrifices were offered and prayers still fill the air.

Q I went into my 17-yearold’s bedroom to wake him this morning. After some urging, he eventually got up and then told me he hated me. What is the appropriate consequence for this sort of disrespect? A Actually, I don’t consider that a form of disrespect. Strictly speaking, your son simply informed you of how he feels about you, or felt about you at that moment. His tone of voice may have been disrespectful, but the statement “I hate you” is not. It’s all about him, his feelings. It’s not about you.

Brooks Robinson has spent the past several years recovering from several grim injuries and illnesses, but in the middle of last week, he said confidently in a phone interview, “I’m coming around, I’m getting better. I’m on the way.” He has never been an athlete who rested on the bench. From 1960-1974, for example, his averaged nearly 157 games per season. He has been a Hall of Famer since 1983.
