LUBBOCK, Texas - It was pilot William C. McCool's first trip into space, and he wanted everyone to be there. So they were: the guys from Coronado High School, his mentors from the Naval Academy, his nervous mother and proud father. When the space shuttle Columbia lifted off 18 days ago from its Cape Canaveral launch pad, Dale Somers stood in the Florida sun so far from home, overwhelmed by the power of that flying machine - and by the realization that his high school pal McCool sat behind the controls as co-pilot.

Now, I'm not a superstitious person. But then I read this "weather history" note from the National Weather Service forecast office for northern Indiana. It says on this date (May 13) in 1930 (the digits add up to 13), a 39-year-old farmer (three times 13) was caught outside in a sudden hailstorm 30 miles northwest of Lubbock, Tex. He was "beaten to death by the hail." Yikes! No chance of hail today, but be careful out there. And have a happy Mother's Day.
