Posted 12/12/2015 in National Columns

One of my best friends in the world is going "under the knife" today, which is what my mother would have said if someone she knew was about to have an operation. I never once heard her say "procedure," which sounds more like a tax audit or a recipe for making cheese.

Posted 12/5/2015 in National Columns

In the new movie "Creed," Rocky Balboa once again mounts the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. In the original "Rocky," the climb up those stairs was the climax of a training montage that has since become iconic.
