Making it OK to sleep late

"The revolution at the Bethesda Home and Retirement Center began with sleeping in.

Letting people sleep late may not sound subversive. But in the traditional world of nursing homes, which for decades have been run like highly regimented mini-hospitals, it is a radical change."

Wedding Thoughts

"June 21. It hardly seems possible. It has been nearly 39 years since I met the beautiful woman who would become my wife.

We were both 'juniors' at the time: I, a third year college student; Joanne, a third year high school student. But by the time that I realized I was dating a 16-year old—a 'cradle-robber,' my college buddies would call me—I was hopelessly smitten. We were married two years later, at the tender ages of 22 and 18. This past week we celebrated our anniversary."
