LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

I f it's heartening to see of a bunch of kids fighting for what's right, it's horrifying to see someone not much older determined to exterminate entire races.

Adopting a child is always difficult, and being visually impaired complicates the process. Adopting a child from Russia under those circumstances is a maze of red tape.

After nearly four decades without an execution in Tennessee, there now are two condemned men down to their final legal appeals. But are executions too expensive, morally and economically?

Plus, animal research, Al Gore on the rebound, ad-writing computers, taking time to listen, and more.
