Charles W. Mitchell's recently published book, Maryland Voices of the Civil War, is the culmination of 12 years of burning the midnight oil. When he wasn't helping coach his children's sports teams on weekends, he immersed himself in reading and writing about the great conflict that swept through Maryland from 1861 to 1865. He spent thousands of hours squinting at microfilm of old newspapers and combing the files at the Maryland Historical Society, the Maryland Department of the Enoch Pratt Free Library, Peabody Institute, Hood College, and the Freedman and Southern Society Project at the University of Maryland, College Park, to name just a few of the institutions whose holdings drew him. What he was searching for were letters and diaries from people from all walks of life -- merchants, soldiers, politicians, slaves, slave owners, clergy, women, civic leaders and children -- that would in turn become the "voice" that Mitchell sought to illuminate the conflict.

Though I'm ashamed to admit this, a few months ago when I heard about a Carnival cruise called Figure at Sea and targeted to plus-sized women, my mind was immediately stuffed with plus-sized puns: Moby Chicks. Bounty on the Mutiny. The Love-Handles Boat. As I say, I'm not proud of myself. In fact, I felt guilty enough to apologize by confessing my slim person sins to Catherine Lippincott, who is 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs 275 pounds, and is author of Well-Rounded: Eight Simple Steps for Changing Your Life, Not Your Size (Simon & Schuster, 1997)

Second, they never know what has happened to any of their students from the last time they have seen them to the next time they meet. A perfect example is that of 15-year-old Meaghan Trumwell, who received news that her parents were divorcing on a Tuesday evening shortly after her grandmother's death. As she said, "I saw it coming but I didn't want to believe it. If you tell yourself something often enough, it, like, sort of doesn't happen.
