My parents voted for Richard Nixon in the 1960 presidential election. I had not yet developed a political worldview, but as a freshman at American University in Washington, D.C., I stayed up late to watch the election returns slowly trickle in before going to bed at 2 a.m. with the outcome still undecided. The following year I was hired as a copyboy at NBC News, delivering wire service "copy" to news reporters in the network's Washington bureau. White House correspondent Sander Vanocur invited me to accompany him to observe the swearing-in of Adlai Stevenson as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Switching his commitment to Maryland from Boston College was “the most difficult decision” Andrew Isaacs said he's made in his life. He had a good relationship with the Eagles' coaching staff, thought the team was filled with “great guys,” and liked the fact that Chestnut Hill is less than two hours away from his Manchester, Conn., home. “That was one of the schools that stuck with me after my [ACL tear junior year],” Isaacs said. “A lot of schools don't want to recruit anyone injured.

Like most college students about to graduate, Jackie Congedo was crossing her fingers in May that she would land a job in her chosen field. As a broadcast journalism major, she knew the competition for on-air slots would be intense. Yet two weeks before earning her bachelor's degree cum laude from the University of Maryland, College Park, the Glenelg High School graduate was offered a plum position working in Washington, the eighth-ranked news market in the country. Congedo, 21, is a reporter for WJLA-TV's NewsChannel 8 and ABC-7, which share a studio in Arlington, Va. "To start your career in a major city like Washington can be very scary," said Sue Kopen Katcef, lecturer/executive producer and one of Congedo's former professors at College Park.

Noel Regney, 80, who wrote the holiday classic "Do You Hear What I Hear" and the 1963 No. 1 hit "Dominique," died Sunday in Danbury, Conn., after a long struggle with a degenerative disorder, Pick's disease, that took his speech and the use of his hands. As a young man, Mr. Regney studied classical music in Paris and Strasbourg, but his goal of becoming a composer was interrupted by World War II. A native of France, he was forced into the Nazi army but rebelled and became a secret agent for the French Resistance, said his stepdaughter, Trish Spiegel.

Look closely at the top summer movies and notice the special effects they're having on the perception of age. At 65, Harrison Ford is saving the world again in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and, yes, that's gray hair underneath his beat-up fedora. In Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. flies across the ocean in a metal suit and, just as incredibly, demonstrates a superhero can be a 43-year-old guy with crow's feet. All the fun stuff in Sex and the City - the high heels, designer handbags, fancy cocktails and steamy passions - is reserved for actresses of a certain age and income level.

I was in the CNN green room in Washington Sunday when I heard about the death of pioneering CBS newsman Mike Wallace at 93 Sunday. Being a live show, host Howie Kurtz and the CNN team scrapped the planned opening and went with a segment on Wallace that I was part of. I will post that video here as soon as CNN makes it available. UPDATE (2:25 p.m): The video from CNN's "Reliable Sources" has been added at end of this post. But here's what I think matters most about Wallace, who I was lucky enough to interview over the years.

Barry Bingham Jr., 72, who guided The Courier-Journal and Louisville Times to three Pulitzer Prizes before the Kentucky newspapers were sold as the family battled over finances, died Monday in Glenview, Ky.

Mr. Bingham led the newspapers until his family sold them in 1986 despite his bitter opposition.
