I pay my taxes. I will not offend your intelligence by pretending to enjoy it. Writing that check is about as enjoyable as a chain-saw root canal. But I don't resent it, either. I pay my taxes because this is how we the people pay for things we deem to be in our communal interest. This is how our military is sustained. This is how our children are educated. This is how our potholes are filled. This is how our libraries are stocked. This is how our police officers are supplied.

I think that I shall never see a movie lovely as a tree, and "Medicine Man," set among the trees of the Amazon rain forest, confirms that suspicion.A medical whatdunit with overtones of ecological orthodoxy and metaphorical fancy, the movie isn't bad so much as unfinished. It's as if John McTiernan, the action director now trying a grown-up project, is working from notes rather than a script. This is his "Apocalypse Now," and he still hasn't found an ending.Like "Apocalypse," this one is about an arduous upriver journey through a merciless jungle; the difference is in the destination, which is a heart of lightness.

I have normal LDL cholesterol but low HDL, as low as 26. With diet and exercise, I can get my HDL to the mid-30s, which is not great. Lipitor lowered my LDL below 80, but sadly my HDL didn't budge. After being on Lipitor for a couple of months, I woke up one morning and had no idea what day of the week it was or that the company picnic was the day before. At work, I could not make simple postings of dollar amounts from hard copy to electronic spreadsheet (I would forget the amounts). At a meeting, I could not remember names, and later at home, I kept asking my wife the same question, as I could not remember her answer.

Instant historiansFOR two days, the U.S. Senate was filled with talk of war, lack of military preparedness and one's place in history. Debate focused not on war in the Balkans but whether two military commanders should be exonerated for their conduct 57 years ago, when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.By a vote of 52-47, the Senate restored the rank of admiral to Husband Kimmel and general to Walter Short, the two senior commanders in Hawaii in 1941. Nine inquiries over the past five decades concluded the two commanders were guilty of dereliction and had agreed with their demotions.

SANTA FE, N.M. -- A 13th death has been linked to a quick-acting, still unexplained illness in the Navajo Reservation area.There have been no deaths reported since Saturday noon; the 13th death occurred in early May but was tied to the disease only Tuesday night. But one state health official says it is too early to declare that the danger has passed."Epidemics, particularly if they're related to infectious agents, sometimes tend to progress in waves depending on what the incubation period is of that infectious agent," Dr. Gary L. Simpson, medical director of the infectious diseases division of the New Mexico Department of Health, said yesterday.

San Francisco. UNTIL LAST WEEK there was nothing at all unusual about the corner intersection half a block from our house. A wooden fence hides the bushes and trees on the corner lot and occasionally a sprig of mint or a dandelion pushes through to the sidewalk. There's a city trash can here, and a stop sign. We pass this corner daily, as do children on their way to and from the nearby school.At 4:30 p.m. last Tuesday, an out-of-control Cadillac came speeding down the steep hill east of here.
