Word this week that California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger broke his leg skiing set inquiring minds to wonder: How could that happen? The man is an expert skier, a movie star athlete, an Austrian, for heaven's sake. Turns out the Terminator got a ski pole caught in one of his skis as he was waiting to make a final run. So when he took off, he just tripped and fell over. Ouch! Ain't it just always the dumb stuff that gets you? The odd step off a curb, the slip on the ice, the horse that runs easily over hill and muddy dale only to dump her rider in a frantic bid to escape an odd-shaped hay bale.

Chris Gardner recalls the words he heard most from the man living with his mother when he was growing up: "I ain't your daddy." The man punctuated his declaration liberally with profanity. Gardner, in fact, was almost 30 when he met his biological father. He had already made a solemn promise to himself "that when I [grow] up and have a son of my own, he would always know who I was and I would never disappear from his life." Gardner kept his promise, even through a year of homelessness, and wrote about his triumph over life on the street with his young son in The Pursuit of Happyness (Amistad, 2006)
