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.

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)

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.
