Save Money in this Sunday's paper

It seems like a funny way to reach out to those who have lost a child – gathering in the sunshine at the U.S. National Whitewater Center to watch yellow rubber ducks race down the rapids.

On the same day that she issued a historically important dissent in defense of affirmative action, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor showed that she’s the court’s resident techie. In oral argument in the case of ABC v. Aereo, she invoked Dropbox, iCloud, Simple.TV and Nimble TV. Oh, and she has Roku, too. I bet she installed it herself.

Statesmen eulogized Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel Garcia Márquez, who died at age 87 on April 17. “The world has lost one of its greatest visionary writers – and one of my favorites from the time I was young,” President Barack Obama said; he called the author of “One Hundred Years of Solitude” “a representative and voice for the people of the Americas.”

This week is the golden anniversary of the opening of the 1964 New York World’s Fair, when visitors flocked to Queens to see exhibits that included a guy flying around with his jet pack, Michelangelo’s “Pieta,” the brand-new Ford Mustang and Walt Disney’s animated figurines singing “It’s a Small World (After All).”

Great American entrepreneurial legends from Henry Ford to Steve Jobs have always been quick to admit success is seldom just about what we can do for ourselves. America has a long and proud history of creating innovations that change the world and make a difference in the lives of others.

This 62-year-old Eagle Scout is sadly disappointed that the Boy Scouts of America has revoked the charter of the Rainier Beach United Methodist Church in Seattle. The Scouts’ national office stated that the “policy of the Boy Scouts of America does not allow open or avowed homosexuals to serve as volunteer adult leaders.” A 49-year-old Eagle Scout who was otherwise qualified to serve as a scouting volunteer will now be forbidden to do so based on this proclaimed “Scout Law.” I find this “policy” irreconcilable with the teachings afforded me during my scouting days.

Geometrically speaking, it just can’t happen, architects sniff. Yet people who work for presidents or cover them for a living know that it does.

It was an angry book. Much of the response was angry, too. Some towns banned it, some towns burned it. Every town talked about it.

Those new lanes will get us to airport security lines much faster!
