WAYNE L. WESCOTT: Walk your way to good health -- Planned, progressive walking for the purpose of enhancing physical capacity is most often referred to as fitness walking. Don’t confuse fitness walking with a leisurely walk through the park, 18 holes of golf, a day at the shopping mall or a stroll around the neighborhood. The Patriot Ledger (Mass.)
SHOESTRING LIVING: Walking for physical, emotional and financial health - Life is stressful, to say the least. Most of us spend all our waking moments trying to pack the maximum into the measly 24-hour period bestowed upon us each day.

Here’s why walking, makes physical, emotional and financial sense. By Molly Logan Anderson, GHNS columnist.
JEFF VRABEL: The Internet says I am fat - I am fat because the Internet has told me I am fat. And in all its 90-year history, the Internet has only lied to me about three things: that those e-mails from Bank of Amurica were cause for an immediate cash transfer to Botswana; that I needed to quickly purchase a product called a "panther sharpener," which was neither about a panther nor a sharpener; and that functional political bipartisanship was remotely realistic. By Jeff Vrabel, GHNS columnist

SUZETTE MARTINEZ STANDRING: Spiritual archaeology in an old house -- Over the years, I’ve found Mary statues and crosses in attics and closets. To me, there is something quite beautiful about tapping into the long-ago spiritual energy of a house, a sort of spiritual archaeology. Recently, we had a room renovated, and the painter uncovered a mezuzah under old paint on the doorpost. GHNS
KEVIN FRISCH: ‘To speak, and to speak well, are two things’ -- Just yesterday, I heard a caller say he could remember what happened because he had a photogenic memory.

GREG ZYLA: Reader explains history of 'suicide doors' and much more - Greg, I read the article you wrote about “suicide doors” on cars in our local newspaper. These suicide doors came about thanks to the two-door Fords (coupes and sedans) that were built from 1933 to 1939 that had doors that opened from the front. If they were not shut tightly, they came loose from the bouncing. By Greg Zyla, GHNS columnist.
* This contains a letter from St. Charles, Ill.
SILVIO CALABI: The great Z, four decades on - Some of us gearheads still moon about the splendid heritage of certain Euro sports cars while pooh-poohing the Japanese as newcomers whose “soul-less” mechanical reliability is no substitute for DNA forged in the heat of wheel-to-wheel combat. By Silvio Calabi, GHNS columnist.
