My 10-year old developed a bad cold with fever and a hard cough last week. In general, he seems better, but he is still coughing. Now he says his chest hurts. Should I be worried?If your son's chest hurts only when he coughs, the pain is probably due to sore chest and abdominal muscles. Coughing is hard work. It can put extra strain on muscles not used to working so hard, just as starting a new sport or exercise program might.Make yourself cough as you read this, and feel how much more deeply you inhale and how much more forcefully your chest and abdominal muscles move in than they do during a normal breath.

Why me? That was my first thought upon learning that I had glaucoma, a disease that steals your vision. I had already lost most of the sight in my left eye and the damage was irreversible. I was in danger of losing the sight in my right eye, as well. "How could this be?" I asked myself. I had always prided myself on being the picture of perfect health. I ate right, was obsessed with exercise, took loads of vitamin supplements, and was a bodybuilding and weight-lifting champion. I felt great, felt no eye pain, and didn't really notice any difficulty in doing my job as a television news anchor, which, of course, requires lots of reading, both on-camera and off. But that's the tricky part about glaucoma.

WASHINGTON -- It's a little known fact that Martin Luther King Jr. didn't really lead the March on Washington. What actually happened is that the marchers, a quarter-million strong, grew impatient waiting for the event to begin and stepped off the curb ahead of schedule. When they found out what had happened, Dr. King and other march "leaders" had to scramble to catch up. Freedom was in the air and the marchers saw no need to wait for permission to move. Forty-one years later, that vignette from another era offers an irresistible analogy to frame what has been happening these last few days in San Francisco.

PHILADELPHIA -- It was 1951 when the father of Retin-A first came to Holmesburg Prison.The 1,200 inmates of Philadelphia's gloomiest jail were plagued by an outbreak of athlete's foot, and the prison pharamacist had asked Dr. Albert M. Kligman, a University of Pennsylvania dermatologist, to take a look.Imagine the researcher's thrill as he stepped into the aging prison, hundreds of men milling around."All I saw before me were acres of skin," Kligman told a newspaper reporter in 1966. "It was like a farmer seeing a field for the first time."

Andrew White, along with artifacts of stone axes and hoes, spear-tips and bolas, tell tales of their culture.

My 8-year-old daughter has been coughing up blood. Otherwise, she seems fine.How worried should I be about this?Coughing up blood (called hemoptysis by doctors) should always be taken seriously.It is an unusual symptom in childhood. When it does occur, it may be a sign of a lung disease that requires treatment.Before listing some of the most common causes of hemoptysis during childhood, we want to point out that it is not always easy to tell whether the blood is coming from the lungs or the stomach, but both are important.

Joy and Grant Pivec's palatial new home rests as a columned tribute to country gentility at the end of a half-mile-long, gravel driveway in northern Baltimore County. Just a couple of months from completion, the interior is about to be painted. Joy Pivec stands in the midst of exposed drywall, in what will soon be her state-of-the-art kitchen. She speaks first about a master plan, one that preceded the custom design of this house. Her in-laws, Sharon and Dave Pivec, nurtured dreams of a family compound, one on which they, and all three of their children, would eventually build four homes on land off Old York Road.

Mel Gibson has been Hamlet. Kevin Costner has been Robin Hood. Woody Allen has been a romantic lead.Stranger things have happened in Hollywood than Demi Moore playing a Navy SEAL, as she does in "G.I. Jane." Director Ridley Scott's preach-athon doggedly insists women (especially surgically enhanced ones) can endure the military's most rigorous physical and mental program: Navy SEAL (sea, air, land) training.But the casting of Moore isn't what has retired SEAL Tom Hawkins up in arms about the movie.
