Stadium should carry Dooley legacy

Last Saturday, while the Bulldog nation sweated out a 35-32 victory over the Tennessee Volunteers that should not have been as hard as our scholar-athletes made it, former head football coach and athletic director Vince Dooley's first team at UGA was recognized on the occasion of its 50th anniversary. As nice as that was, more - much more - needs to be done to honor the legendary Hall of Fame coach.

It's a good think to know your numbers

My good friend stopped by my office the other day, somewhat surprising me with his visit.

He's slightly younger than me and stays very active; and he recently lost about 10 pounds by way of good dieting and exercise. I asked him how he discovered that his blood pressure was high.

There are still 'normal' children out there

During the past 40 years or so, child advocates have given a good amount of lip service to the view that adults, especially educators, should respect children's "individual differences." In theory, this recognizes the fact that every trait is distributed in the general population in a manner represented by the bell-shaped curve. Whether the issue is general intelligence, sociability, optimism, musical aptitude, artistic ability or mechanical skill (to mention but a few), relatively few people are "gifted" and relatively few people are disadvantaged. Whatever the characteristic, most folks are statistically "normal." That is, they possess an adequate amount, enough ...
