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 drivingĀ 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.

I would like to take a personal moment to recognize the outstanding contributions of our family's "honorary son," 1st Lt. James P. Downs, whom we all call Pat. Pat is currently stationed with the U.S. Army in southern Afghanistan. He is a 2002 graduate of St. Vincent Pallotti High School and graduated from Salisbury University in 2007 with honors. After college, Pat spent time training professional athletes in speed, endurance and nutrition. He then answered our country's call and enlisted in the armed services.

KENYA IS SUCH an important African country that it matters to the rest of the world who will succeed President Daniel arap Moi when his 25-year rule ends in four months. That question matters so much to Mr. Moi as well that he wants the ruling party to consider only his choice. When Vice President George Saitoti dared to promote his own candidacy, he was summarily fired. Since its independence from Britain in 1963, Kenya has had only two presidents. And Mr. Moi insists that the first president's son, Uhuru Kenyatta, should succeed him, although half a dozen other ruling party officials of the Kenya African National Union (KANU)

The father of WWE's biggest star is also active in pro wrestling. In fact, he is a staple in the New England scene. Known as "Johnny Fabulous," John Cena Sr. is as charismatic as you would expect the father of WWE's face to be.

Bessie Turner bought her house in a quiet Brooklyn Park neighborhood six years ago with a plan: She wanted to give her two sons a better place to live. She'd stay until January 2010, then pull out some of her equity and move to Myrtle Beach, S.C. Her sons would continue living there, paying less than if they were to rent a similar place, and she'd be there often. But that all changed two years ago Thursday. Her elder son, Rudolph Turner Jr., 25, was fatally shot in his bedroom.

Albert Snyder is a soft, bear of a man - more teddy than grizzly - with thinning hair, a trim goatee and tired eyes. He has a folksy, polite manner and speaks with the gentle tone and tempo of a storyteller. But if you mess with his family, he turns fierce. You can see the change whenever the Westboro Baptists of Topeka, Kan., are mentioned. They messed with his son in what he considers an unimaginable way. "You don't go after one of my kids," Snyder said from his lawyer's office in York, Pa. Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew A. Snyder, 20, was killed in a Humvee accident in Iraq on March 3, 2006.
