"Where is the heart of the NRA? In this bewildering time, when progress flirts with uncertainty, where is the heart of the NRA?"-- Tanya K. Metaksa,NRA chief lobbyist PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Wayne Anthony Ross's children never had nightmares.And he can plainly tell you why. They were loved and made to feel safe in their hillside home in Anchorage, Alaska. As toddlers, the Ross boys and their sister, Amy, learned gun safety with toys. By age 7, they had been taught to fire a rifle. As young adults, they are accomplished and fearless, their dad says.

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Whatever the actual voter turnout in the Iraq election, the spectacle of so many Iraqis defying death and dictatorial religious leaders to cast ballots is a strong first step in affirming the Bush administration's policy to spread freedom in lands that have not known it. While rejoicing in the scene that included a 94-year-old woman being carried by her son to a polling place and fewer terrorist bombings than forecast, Secretary of...

The title of Bernard Knox's scintillating collection of essays does not allude to the Michael J. Fox movie, itself nearly a decade into the past. As the director emeritus of Harvard's Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington points out, the title's source lies in the early Greek concept of the future lying behind us.In other words, the past and the present are in front of us since we can see them. The future, invisible, is behind. Therefore we walk blind, backward into the future, rather than facing the future as we advance.

Unless he was prescient, he couldn't have known anything about school nicknames or the agony of an 0-11 football season. But Noah Webster's dictionary gives one definition of the word crusade as, "vigorous, concerted action for some cause or idea, or against some abuse."The Cardinal Gibbons Crusaders certainly experienced abuse last year. After swapping its Maryland Scholastic Association B Conference schedule to an undermanned Dunbar team just before the season opened, Gibbons, with only 200 boys in grades 9-12, went winless against A Conference opponents.

Normandy, France.--By June 6, 1944, the cream of the Wehrmacht, 2 million men, had been killed in Russia. And still the Normandy invasion was a hard-won success. If Hitler had not been a habitual late sleeper, if that morning he had unleashed the panzer divisions north of Paris, which Rommel might have got him to do if Rommel had not been in Germany for his wife's birthday, the war could have been even longer.But even before D-Day the defeat of Germany was certain.Any war is a braided cord of related battles.

"Clapton plays the blues."Not exactly stop-the-presses news, is it? After all, Eric Clapton has been playing the blues (or something like them) since he started making records some 29 years ago with the Yardbirds. In that time, he's paid tribute to everyone from Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters to Albert King and Robert Cray, building a reputation as one of English rock's premier bluesmen in the process.So it probably seems silly to say there's anything novel about the all-blues approach he adopts for "From the Cradle" (Reprise 45735, arriving in stores today)

There's evidence of limited snow-blower activity in my Baltimore neighborhood. I didn't see anyone operating a snow blower and I didn't hear a snow blower. All I'm saying is, there's evidence of snow-blower activity in my neighborhood -- and it's not at my house. The snow-blowing apparently occurred directly after our first blizzard, in the wee hours of Sunday morning, when most of us were sleeping. (The machine must have been equipped with a special snow-blower silencer, because we never heard it.)

The developer of Harbor East has dipped its toes back into Baltimore's tenuous condominium market, presenting the city with new plans for long-stalled luxury residences atop the Four Seasons Hotel. The design calls for 63 condominiums instead of the roughly 150 initially envisioned in a project that the developer said still could be scrapped. The uncertainty highlights Baltimore's tentative condo market. While sales numbers and prices suggest that the market is rebounding, condos remain an uncommon, often premium product in Baltimore, and many developers remain unconvinced that there is sufficient demand.
