In 1968, Mr. Szuba's youngest son, Robert, was born with Down syndrome. The event propelled Mr. Szuba into projects supporting the mentally and physically disabled for the rest of his life.

'Titanic' is truly a movie for teens as well as adultsAs the mother of several teen-agers, I beg to differ with Susan Reimer's premise -- in her Jan. 21 column, "Weeping Beauty" -- that "Titanic" is a "chick" flick. Quite the contrary, it is a film for all ages and a true gift.In an age when we are inundated with flash-in-the-pan celluloid, director James Cameron has delivered a film with depth, scope, human emotion and magnificence.As for those heartthrob stars, isn't it refreshing to find that in hollow Hollywood, two young people can, indeed, convey desperation, love, elation and pain so exquisitely, while being too young to have experienced any of those emotions.
