My periodic "Did You Know" columns tend to raise the blood pressure of more conservative readers who are embarrassed/angry/frustrated by the increasingly aggressive counter-cultural policies of the hard left and their allies in Hollywood, on campus, and in Washington, D.C. Yet, some of this stuff is so looney and/or outside what should be mainstream views and opinions that I can't help myself. So, with due apologies to the aforementioned, did you know: •The Defense Department continues to insist the deadly Fort Hood murders (which killed 13, including a pregnant soldier, and wounded 32 others)

Say, you might have missed the memo on this, so - just FYI - we thought we'd mention that the war on terror is over. No, this isn't an April Fool's joke. It's official policy of the U.S. government. Reports surfaced recently that the Global War on Terror no longer exists. Does this mean Americans now don't have to worry about bad guys and bomb plots? No such luck. Terrorism will likely be with us for a long time. But the fight, according to the Pentagon's Office of Security Review, will henceforth be termed an "overseas contingency operation."

Under a pavilion at Druid Hill Park, a little girl deftly twirled a hula hoop. The spry 10-year-old easily matched dance steps with a crush of practiced teenagers and sat patiently while a volunteer painted her face with feline features. But the minute she spotted her brother, she raced toward him. She held him in a fierce hug, saying the 11-year-old's name over and over. The pair had not seen each other since Easter. No one better understood that reaction than Shantel Randolph, a former foster child who organized the picnic to reunite siblings in foster care.
