Just in time for Father's Day, I'd like to say happy Mother's Day to all the dads out there. It turns out, you are more like her than you knew. Long after the kids are grown and gone, a mother's body bears witness to pregnancy, childbirth and nursing. But researchers say the change may be most profound in her brain. From earliest times - and in primates and other mammals - females have become more focused as a result of having offspring. They are increasingly aware of the environment and the dangers it presents.

Although some customs have changed — and in spite of omnipresent ear buds and texting — the custom of greeting people still exists. I remember my grandfather lifting his hat as he passed, without speaking to, the female supervisors on our school playground. He lifted it when he passed a neighbor coming into his apartment building and removed it when we stepped inside the ancient elevator there. Except for baseball caps, few men today wear hats. It is refreshing to see them removed in a house or restaurant.

Recently, I helped found Millennial Maryland, a group that advocates a different vision for both Maryland and the Republican Party. That vision includes an understanding of the wider world, the embrace of civility and the constant pursuit of intellectual knowledge. Allow me to take this moment to underscore why these things matter. On his blog Monday, Allen West, retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel and former Florida GOP congressman, posted a video of Bob Bergdahl, the father of recovered POW and potential deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

A 30-second television spot for Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown focuses on his role as an adoptive father while getting in some plugs for the O'Malley administration's record on adoption and foster care. What the ad says : The ad shows Brown playing basketball with his son while the lieutenant governor says he never knew the impact adoption could have until Jonathan, now 13, came into his life. The ad shifts to an image of a gospel choir in an African-American church while Brown talks of bringing his message about the joys of adoption into churches on Sundays.

There was a mistake, Johns Hopkins University officials told Amanda Valledor at Thursday's graduation.  Her diploma had been misplaced, and the biomedical engineering student would have to wait, they said.  A few minutes later, a man came to hand Valledor the diploma. It was her father, Col. John Valledor, whom she had not seen since he left for Afghanistan last year.  He had not been scheduled to return home until next month.  Valledor, 22, froze for an instant, then ran into her father's arms.

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.

For 10 years Sandy Thomas had been running a 2-mile circuit most mornings around her North Laurel neighborhood of Hammond Village to stay physically fit, but in 2006 life handed her a detour. Her husband, Jim, died that year from skin cancer, and the ranch-style home where they had lived for nearly 40 years and raised five kids suddenly seemed too big. So she sold the house in 2007 to her son, Mark Thomas, and moved to Hanover, Pa. Sandy Thomas, who is fit and youthful at 71, continues to run in her new community.
