If Baltimore native Leland Shelton had bothered to check his email in the hectic day before graduation, he might have avoided a shock during commencement. There he was, one of 500 men in a black cap and gown this week at Morehouse College in Atlanta, soaking up the words of the speaker — President Barack Obama — when the commander in chief called out his name. "Where's Leland?" Obama said, and Shelton's mouth went dry. "I was floored, I was momentarily paralyzed," the 21-year-old said.

Too often when consumers have a gripe about a business or the service they received, they don't tell the company because they figure it won't do much good. Instead, they tell friends, maybe switch to a competing company or just lower their expectations. They ought to give complaining a try. "It's not useless at all. The problem is that people don't know how to complain effectively," said Karen Leland, co-author of Customer Service for Dummies. Making an effective complaint takes some of the traits you learned as a child from a parent or kindergarten teacher.

Old Dominion senior shortstop Jesse Schoendienst has much more blond than red in his hair, with the red mostly in his beard, but his teammates still call him "Red" out of respect for his baseball genes. The former C. Milton Wright standout's great uncle is Baseball Hall of Famer and former St. Louis Cardinals manager Red Schoendienst, who has not had an opportunity to see the young Schoendienst play. "He hasn't made it out here yet," Jesse said on Sunday from Norfolk, Va., where the Monarchs had completed a three-game sweep of George Mason to run their record to 17-3 this season.
