FREDERICKSBURG, Va. - Blowing up a dam isn't easy - just ask the Army Corps of Engineers. The Corps, better known for building dams than tearing them down, misfired in its first attempt to blow up the Embrey Dam across the Rappahannock River here yesterday, producing a "poof" instead of a "kaboom" when it set off only a fraction of the 650 pounds of explosives planted in the dam.

A psychiatrist once noted that the growth industry in bereavement counseling is a bit ironic in light of the fact that the Jews had it figured out 4,000 years ago.Many religions have rites and rituals for the time following a death, but the ancient Jewish practices are an especially good illustration of how religious and cultural customs can meet our needs in a time of grief.Shiva, the Hebrew word for seven, is the best-known phase of Jewish mourning. Often called "sitting shiva" because of the low stools customarily used, it refers to the intense seven-day period of mourning that immediately follows a burial.
