The nine o'clock news on the radio included a 15-second report that three American servicemen had been killed in Afghanistan. That was it. There wasn't time to mention that these three dead soldiers had mothers and fathers who will grieve for them the rest of their lives. It also left out whether these young men had brothers, sisters, wives or girlfriends — and maybe children, too. And it failed to ask why we were even in Afghanistan in the first place. Edward J.

A couple of weeks ago, we reached a milestone in my house. My older son got his learner's permit. It's been nerve-wracking riding with him as he learns to negotiate traffic circles, four-way stops and merge lanes. But as scary as it seems riding with him, I'm more worried about the day when he drives without me. According to a new survey commissioned by AT&T, 43 percent of teens admit to texting while driving and 75 percent say their friends do it all the time. With prom and graduation season upon us, the phone company has launched a campaign, It Can Wait, to educate kids about the dangers of texting while driving.
