The retouching on the black-and-white photograph is a giveaway. The good looks of the suave young man peering out from one of Warsaw's Academy of Fine Arts student passbooks rival those of a movie star. The confident gaze, hint of a smile and darkroom-perfected complexion were all characteristic of portraiture in the 1930s and 1940s. Next to the headshot, a red ink stamp pinpoints the date first hinted at by the portrait's signature style: Oct. 31, 1939. That was the last time Jerzy Kajetanski used his bus pass in his native Poland, two months after the Sept.

Maybe you heard about the tribute Kevin Durant paid his mother last week. You probably missed the one he paid his dad. Both came during Durant's acceptance speech after being named the NBA's Most Valuable Player. Maybe you don't follow sports, maybe you've never heard of Mr. Durant, maybe you think a pick and roll is a roadside produce stand. You still should see the video. In a voice choked with tears, Mr. Durant, a ferociously talented forward for the Oklahoma City Thunder, thanks God. He thanks each teammate by name, thanks his coach, support staff, brothers, friends, grandmother, fans, the sportswriters who voted for him. And in the part that will have you clearing your throat and discovering a foreign particle in your eye, he speaks directly to his mother.

An 18-year-old man has been charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of his father in their home in Dundalk Thursday. Police said Richard J. Washington and his father, Richard A.

The Yankees have announced that Joe Girardi's father died Saturday. News of Jerry Girardi's death broke earlier in the day. He had been battling Alzheimer's disease and was 81. Girardi choked up when talking about the passing of his father at his pregame news conference, saying he kept quiet about the death because he didn't want it to be a distraction. The Yankees host the Orioles in Game 4 of the ALDS tonight at 7:37 p.m.

Angry at a father who had been nagging him about getting a job, Darius Rodmond Keenan Jr. allegedly killed the Pasadena resident with a single gunshot to the head in 2012, prosecutors claimed Wednesday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. Keenan is on trial for first-degree murder and gun charges related to the death of his father, Darius "Rodney" Keenan Sr., a correctional officer six months away from retirement. Prosecutors said the father and son had been estranged for years, with the son raised in South Carolina by his mother.

Both the mother and father should be charged in the case of the one-month old boy who was found buried in Druid Hill Park ("Murder charge in baby's death," March 16). The father led the police to the grave. The baby had been there since some time in February. Department of Social Services had taken away four other children. Neither of them should be let off the hook. The father must have known something about what the mother had done. I don't understand how he could have gone nearly a month and not wondered where his son was. I think he knew what the mother had done.

The nine o'clock news on the radio included a 15-second report that three American servicemen had been killed in Afghanistan. That was it. There wasn't time to mention that these three dead soldiers had mothers and fathers who will grieve for them the rest of their lives. It also left out whether these young men had brothers, sisters, wives or girlfriends — and maybe children, too. And it failed to ask why we were even in Afghanistan in the first place. Edward J.

What is it about fathers, sons and baseball? What makes the sport so special that it is passed down the family line, normally among males? But I should quickly add that my wife learned to keep score from her father while going to Fenway Park in Boston in the 1970s, something she still does these days as a season ticket holder to the Washington Nationals. Despite the recent and ongoing problems with performance-enhancement drugs in Major League Baseball, and the ascent of the National Football League as the most popular sport in our country, baseball remains a sport like any other that is passed down from one generation to the next.

Here's a sad but true story. It starts with a young couple living in North Carolina, married two years, wife pregnant, husband in the Army Reserves. He's deployed to Afghanistan for a year, and she moves to Maryland to live with her parents and newborn daughter. One year later, a week before the child's father comes home from Afghanistan, the wife texts her husband to say she's divorcing him - she claimed abandonment, even though they had kept in touch weekly - and then takes two thirds of the money they had saved.
