People don't like thinking about dying or being incapacitated. But at some point it may become necessary, and that means deciding who will handle their affairs when they no longer can. Choosing fiduciaries - those who can make financial, medical and other decisions on your behalf - is not always easy. And often the same person can't fill all roles. For instance, the best person to advise doctors on your care may not be the one you want managing your portfolio. And the candidate who can efficiently carry out the wishes of your will may not be first choice to rear your children.

The Preakness Day handle, which sets the pace for how successful a year Pimlico and the Maryland Jockey Club will have, was the sixth largest overall handle in 2010 but still 8.6 percent lower this year than in 2009, the jockey club announced today. The 2010 handle amounted to just over $79 million for the entire Preakness Day card and nearly $53 million for the 135th Preakness Stakes. Despite the lower figure, attendance for Preakness Day increased about 23 percent from 77,850 to 95,760.

Regarding the "Be Realistic About Snow Removal" editorial (Feb. 11), I couldn't agree more. I grew up in Michigan, and getting hit by back to back storms of this size would present a problem even up there. Granted, it would have been handled better, but they are equipped for it, and the people know what it takes to get through it. This is the snowiest winter on record in Maryland, and the state is not equipped to handle snow of this magnitude, nor should it be. It would be a huge waste of money to purchase and maintain equipment that could handle this when this kind of winter comes around only once in a lifetime.
