After reading Richard Cross' informative article, "Extending a handshake" (March 12), I remembered "the forgotten handshake" of 1916 described by historian Thomas A. Bailey ("The American Pageant"). According to Professor Bailey, Republican presidential candidate and Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes narrowly lost to incumbent Woodrow Wilson in the presidential campaign of 1916, due in part, to an unintended snub. During the campaign in California, Hughes' managers failed to arrange a meeting between their candidate and California Gov. Hiram W. Johnson while both were in the same hotel.

With the evident agenda of President Barack Obama to make friends of our enemies and to make enemies of our allies, it was understandable that he would not only shake hands with Raul Castro but even exchange pleasantries with that Cuban dictator ( "Obama and Castro," Dec. 13). With little regard for the history or the reasons for isolating Cuba and a total lack of understanding of Latin American politics, President Obama has given the seal of approval to a communist regime hostile to the U.S. and engaged in subverting our friends in the region.

Symbols are meaningful in politics. Sometimes, a gesture as simple as a handshake can resonate with tremendous importance. For me, the most important handshake in American history occurred in China on February 21, 1972. By way of background, John Foster Dulles - President Dwight Eisenhower's secretary of state and a staunch anti-communist - refused to shake Chinese leader Chou En Lai's hand at a conference in Geneva in 1954. He later quipped that the only time he'd meet with Chou would be if their cars accidentally collided.

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs always puts a unique spin on things and today was no different when he was asked about participating in Thursday night's "Harbaugh Bowl" between John's Ravens, and Jim's San Francisco 49ers. "It's going to be fun, all the politics that have to do with this game between the two coaches," Suggs said. "Regardless of the end result, I can't wait to see the handshake. That's going to be awesome. " Suggs, of course, was joking about Jim Harbaugh's aggressive handshake with Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz that resulted in Schwartz chasing after him earlier this season.

Maybe it just seems like an every-week occurrence, but Ravens coach John Harbaugh was asked for at least the second time in as many weeks about a decision made by his brother Jim Harbaugh, who coaches the San Francisco 49ers. Last week, the 49ers' top wideout Josh Morgan was lost indefinitely after suffering a broken right ankle in the waning minutes of an eventual 48-3 rout of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. On Sunday, Jim Harbaugh got into an exchange with Detroit Lions Jim Schwartz for their awkward post-game handshake after San Francisco outlasted Detroit, 25-19.

Leave it to The New York Times to deliver another jolt of bad news recently. No, it wasn't a story about the war in Iraq. Or the ozone layer thinning and the polar icecaps melting like popsicles. Or muggers knocking little old ladies over the head at Manhattan gas stations for their Shell cards. No, this one was even more disturbing. It had to do with kissing. Specifically, it had to do with the social kiss, that peck on the cheek that too often leads to all sorts of clumsy facial gyrations between the kisser and kissee.

IT WAS a three-handkerchief show. I've never seen so many grown men cry.Forget that old shibboleth that politicians, male or female, must never cut loose emotions. And never, never weep in public.On this sparkling blue day on the White House lawn, men who had run nations and fought wars wept like schoolgirls at a Bette Davis movie.There were tears of joy, relief and incredulity.What ignited the emotional waterworks was The Handshake Seen Around The World.But the handshake between the Old Soldier and the Terrorist almost didn't happen.

At the memorial for Nelson Mandela, President Obama gave those who pander to right-wing outrage two great opportunities to rattle the cage of Obama haters. The first was his handshake with Cuban leader Raul Castro; the second was the "selfie" he posed for with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt and British Prime Minister David Cameron. Taking the second one first, critics said that it was disrespectful for the president to be clowning around with the two PMs in the middle of a funeral.

The 22-year-old son of Baltimore's top prosecutor and the young man's roommate were each charged Thursday with misdemeanor assault after police said they cut each other to perform a "blood handshake" and then got into a fight. Both men were treated at Maryland Shock Trauma Center after the Thursday morning incident at their Pigtown rowhouse on Scott Street. State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein's son, Owen, required 38 stitches to close the wound on his hand, according to city police.

"Screw you and the horse you rode in on. " This season, 25 single ladies get the opportunity to woo Mr. Sloppy Seconds from last season's “The Bachelorette” - the less-than-hunky Ben Flajnik. He's “darling” but not “sexy” and is the first bachelor to wear his shirt the majority of the first episode. The ladies range from ages 23-34 and are about a culturally diverse as the crowd at a Kenny Chesney concert. After an hour of exiting-the-limo introductions, the annual first-night catfight began.

MOSCOW -- Ivan the Terrible began Russia's relationship with the British by proposing marriage to the first Queen Elizabeth 441 years ago.VTC She refused him, and neither she nor any subsequent English monarch ever set foot in the place.Yesterday, the second Queen Elizabeth changed all that, having accepted a less drastic proposal from President Boris N. Yeltsin. Mr. Yeltsin simply invited her to visit.But when the queen flew here to begin her four-day royal tour, Britons and Russians alike were describing it with considerable awe."

If there's anything we can be sure of in the afterglow of the Mideast accord, it is that we haven't seen the last of The Handshake. This particular handshake has, as they say, legs.We'll see it on T-shirts and on buttons and on postcards -- Arafat and Rabin, lifelong enemies, hand laid upon hand, flesh laid upon flesh, joined for eternity.And available forevermore at your neighborhood novelty store, right next to the Burt-loves-Loni refrigerator magnets.Some may see irony in this.But I see a handshake.
